Weighted Straw Sippy Cup
Ships Next Business Day from California
Drinking from a straw will help your child develop these critical muscles.
Our cup is one of a few weighted straw cups on the market without a valve. This allows your child to start drinking from a straw as early as 6 months.
THE EARLIER THE BETTER!
STRATEGY FOR EARLY LEARNERS
Our cup is produced with a special blend of plastic that allows it to be durable yet soft enough to squeeze.
Similar to the Honey Bear cup, for those little ones that have trouble getting started, just give a gentle push on the "P", and it will send water slowly up the straw.
Place the straw in your little one's mouth and they will receive the water with just the smallest suck.
This then leads to purposeful sucking.

She specializes in early language learning and feeding development and loves our cup!!
We encourage you to follow her on Instagram, her content is great!
Oral Musculature development (or the muscles your child uses to talk!) When children have strong oral musculature (i.e., lips, tongue, cheeks, jaw stability), they are more likely able to clearly imitate a variety of movements needed for speech sounds.
This is the core for developing clear speech. Children with weak oral motor skills have a higher risk of having a speech impairment.
Straw cups are one way of helping your child develop these critical muscles that they will need to produce sounds.

I have 3 for my 15 mo old. Best cup we have found yet. And he loves carrying it around.
Hannah loves her lolllacup! We have 3 of them! So far, no losses while cruising around on the golf cart!!!
Wanted to introduce my baby to straw cups before 9 months. Looked at some different options and went with the lollacup. She took to it immediately and loves it.
First day with the cup. Love ❤️
Have to make a comment on this cup... very pleased with it and ordering a couple more for my home daycare. The big handles are the best
The best!!! Love this cup!! My son started using it at 7 months and it has been a game changer! He could not use the sippy cup or the munchkin weighted straw cup with ease. This was super easy for him to pick up on! Love it!
Out of all the sippy/straw children's cups we own, the Lollacup is by far our favorite as well as our daughter's. It made our daughter's initial transition from bottle to straw cup at 9 months as seamless as I could imagine. It continues to be the most used straw kid's cup we own.
At about $16 a cup you’re paying about twice as much as the average sippy cup, but there is so much thought that went into the design that it is worth it. My water bottle was $14 so why not spend close to the same amount on my kids if I’m going to get a quality product? In the past, I have spent so much money on “leak-proof” cups that just don’t work. I’d rather have a cup that works and won’t ruin the inside of my bags when liquid comes out!
The chick design is ultra-cute and appeals to my 3.5 year old, who also loves to use the cup. Based on their experiences, this definitely looks like a cup that the kids will enjoy for a long time (I better pick up an extra for my daughter!).
Is the Lollacup spill-proof?
Lollacup straw sippy cups are valve-free, so they are NOT spill-proof. Although having a spill-proof cup with active toddlers is sometimes convenient, our aim at lollacup is to eliminate unnecessary challenges for our children. We’ve found that spill-proof straw and sippy cups can be incredibly difficult to drink from, causing frustration for many children. Our goal, in creating lollacup, was to make drinking from a straw easy for young children.
Is the Lollacup dishwasher-safe?
Absolutely, yes. As busy parents, dishwasher is king, but hand-washing your lollacup is always recommended. Plastics have gotten a bad reputation in recent years as leaching chemicals such as BPA and phthalates, especially when exposed to the extreme temperatures in microwaves and dishwashers. In addition, at high temperatures chemical reactions can occur, invisible stress can happen, and plastics can degrade, especially when harsh cleaning agents are added to the mix. Rest-assured that lollacups are BPA-free and phthalate-free, but we advocate hand-washing plastic products whenever possible.
How long do the straws last?
Lollacup straws can, unfortunately, stain (usually from pasta sauce or dark foods/drinks). We had the straw material specially formulated to be soft/pliable, durable, as well as free of BPA, PVC, latex, and phthalates. The drawback is that it can stain. We are constantly asking our chemist about new, safe alternatives, but for the time being, rather than using more additives in the material, we sell straw replacement packs on our website and in some of our retail stores if you'd like to periodically replace your straw.
Is the Lollacup recyclable?
Yes, all parts of the Lollacup are recyclable.
Why does it matter that the Lollacup is made in the USA?
So much of what we use on a daily basis is mass-produced in a foreign country, mainly for cost reasons. We wanted our customers to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that lollacups are made from safe plastics, sourced within the USA, in a facility that has its Device Manufacturing License from the State of California, Department of Health Services, Food and Drug Branch and is ISO 9001:2000 certified. Also, we try to do whatever we can to support our local economy.
