Out of nowhere, an unfamiliar snotty-nosed, crusty-eyed child comes up and grabs your child's sippy cup and begins to drink from it...purely by accident, of course, as he too has that very same sippy cup....because you and his mother just happen to share an obsessive-type love with Target.
Everyone gets their sippy cups from Target, am I right? So you can see the dilemma...it's nothing other than a case of sippy cup confusion.
I've tried writing my kids' names on their cups but it just wipes off the minute their sweaty little hands grab onto it. It seemed there was really no solution, except that we should all just shop at different stores. Yeah, right...
ViveVita and asked if I'd like to review their Bandettes, I realized I had just found the resolution to the sippy cup confusion.
Created by a busy mother of 9 children who obviously understands this dilemma, Bandettes were designed with the purpose of ending sippy cup confusion...and not just that, but they also come in handy for kids who have allergies so they can recognize their sippy cup, with no harmful repurcussions.
Bandettes come in kid-friendly bright colors and each one has an adorable animal adorned on it. The best part is that there is a space on the Bandette where a parent (or a child) can write a name, date, allergies or whatever information necessary in ballpoint pen directly on it. You can choose to either keep the name on it long term (by simply placing the Bandette in boiling water or the dishwasher with the name already written on it) or you can wipe it off and start fresh the next time.
Even young children who can't read yet can benefit from Bandettes by easily recognizing their cup by color and/or animal.
Here are some features of the product:
- Bandette cup labels are dishwasher and microwave safe. (Just remember, before dishwashing, rub off the information that you do not want to remain long term.)
- They fit most cups and bottles (even small containers and adult cups!)
- They are completely reusable and easily moved from one cup to another.
- They make children’s cups easier to grip.
- Made of non-toxic material that meets FDA standards for plastics that come in contact with foods.
- Patent Pending
The kids have been using them ever since! I love that I don't have to take the Bandettes off the cups when I put them in the dishwasher....but if the kids want to switch cups, the Bandettes are easy to remove.
And you know what...since we've been using Bandettes, there has been no sippy cup confusion at the park!! Problem resolved!
