The Playtex Spillproof Cup comes in a variety of different colors and designs. Most of them that I've seen consist of a whitish (semi-clear) cup with colorful patterns or pictures on it and a bright colored lid. The cups we purchased had pictures of little children on them in primary colors. Our lids are blue and red and screw on.
The Playtex Spillproof cup cleans up easily either washed by hand or in the dishwasher. The cup, valve and lid are all dishwasher (top rack) safe but must be disassembled in order to get all 3 parts clean.
Most children go through a phase of throwing or dropping their cup from their high chair. Our son was no different. The Playtex Spillproof Cup is made of a very durable plastic and has been put to the test. Its definitely sturdy.
What I found, though, was over time these cups became less spillproof. But with these cups, its not the valve and spout that leak. Instead, the Playtex Spillproof Cup leaks around the rim area. I am not sure if it is that the cups become disfigured a bit in the dishwasher or what, but thats my hunch as to what is happening.
