Sponsored Post by Moms Meet- The Kupp

Posted by Heather at Thursday, September 25, 2014
**Disclaimer-I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms MeetSM program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms MeetsSM blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of the product.

I recently did a sweep of my four year old daughter's plastic plates, bowls and cups. That stuff seemed to magically multiply and take over our cabinets! So, out went the baby sippy cups, the plastic throwaway cups from Moe's and the many random plastic ware utensils/plates/bowls. We were left with very little.

Now that she is older, she doesn't need a sippy cup. She's past the constant spills of the toddler years. However, our taller, fuller glasses seem a bit overwhelming to her (and more prone to accidents). Enter in The Kupp and problem solved! The Kupp is the perfect transition piece for young hands. It's small enough for littles to use, refill and hold. Yet, because The Kupp is glass, it feels grown-up and sophisticated (very important for my Fancy Nancy obsessed Lil' Miss!). Plus, because of the BPA free silicone and glass cup, The Kupp is a great environmentally sound choice to drink from! This fits in well with our family's commitment to go "crunchy" (I.E. Almost three years ago, we gave up paper towels, we use cloth napkins at most meals and only use paper plates with guests).

Because Lil' Miss is an only child, we didn't necessarily need to use The Kupp to identify each person's cup (to be responsible for). However, the artist/designer in me, loves and appreciates the bright, fun colors- red, blue, orange and green. The smooth shape is also aesthetically pleasing. Lil' Miss definitely prefers to drink from The Kupp any chance she gets. She can easily grab The Kupp from her special cabinet, fill/refill it up from our fridge door and carry it to and from the table (without spilling!). She LOVES The Kupp!!

"The Kupp’ was created by Katesplace founder Kate Oliver as a tool to help her young boys learn accountability and responsibility. She gave each of her children their very own glass in a different color and put them in charge of their cup and all of the responsibilities that came with it, including setting the table, washing, and putting it away. She quickly discovered that she had a cleaner kitchen and her family consumed less plastic. As a result, the Kupp’ was born—a six-ounce glass with a colorful silicone sleeve designed just for kids."

Just the facts
•The Kupp’ is a six-ounce glass outfitted with a colorful silicone sleeve. It’s designed for kids ages 3-10.
•The firm grip and silicon sleeve helps to protect the glass from damage while providing a safe, toxic free vessel to drink from.
•The Kupp’ comes in four vibrant colors that represent the environment: blue for water, green for earth, orange for the sun, and red for warmth. I love the subtle, underlying meanings of each color. I also like the fact that the lower silicone curve is meant to mimic a smile- so friendly!
•The Kupp’ is the perfect serving size for children, and allows them to become more conscious of waste and consumption. Personally, I found the size to be a touch on the small size. I don't know if it's because my four year old daughter drinks more water than most, but I found that she seems to have to refill it several times within one meal.
•The Kupp’ is made in the USA using imported glass, and all materials are sourced from environmentally-friendly manufacturers that adhere to EU and US regulations.
•All glass is recyclable, certified lead and cadmium free, and is made from a pure soda-lime formula. It is also dishwasher safe!
•The grip-friendly silicon sleeve is BPA/BPS free and made with medical and food grade silicon to prevent damage. The sleeve does not have to be removed when washing, which makes cleaning your Kupp’ very simple. The Kupp is very low maintenance- LOVE THAT!
•The adorable Kupp’ is designed to resemble a smile so kids are naturally attracted to it!
•The retail price of the Kupp’ is $16.99 each.
