Turn your bath time into playtime with Sprout Ware Stacking Cups! Whether they'll be stacking them, filling them with water or sand, these are great at boosting your little one's interactivity and concentration skills. They're easy to hold and suitable for the dishwasher too. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Karen: My 2 year old and 9-month-old played together with the cups which was great (and doesn’t happen all that often!). It was quick and easy to tidy away and store and can go in the dishwasher when needed which was really handy too. The ease of portability and versatility helped as I could just take them with me on the go and use them in a variety of different ways to keep the little people entertained on the go.

Amy: I loved the feel of these cups, they felt sturdy and the material is super smooth, they’re easily washable, the colours are great, bright and attractive for babies but not garish or boring. The size makes them easily packable in a nappy bag. The holes in the bottom make them great for water and sand play. They stack for hours of fun building towers. They make excellent drums or rattles.

Ashleigh: It makes bath time easier as it keeps little one entertained while having a splash. It makes it fun and exciting and gives them something to focus on during bath time. The colourful design makes it attractive to our child and doesn't take much encouragement to start to play with them. A fab product.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Samantha: Yes I'd recommend this product; it's is really easy to use as my baby can pick the cups up easily even with wet fingers in the bath. The cups are made out of high-quality materials and stack away neatly when not in use. The water sprinkle holes are a nice feature for sensory play and fun, bath time is definitely much more fun and interactive since we have been using this product.

Kathleen: This is a multi-functional toy that is easy to clean. It is durable for multi-generational use and is a safe developmental toy that doesn’t need a parent to supervise children playing with it. The muted colours could appeal to a more elegant household. The muted colours suggest it is expensive, which it is!

Hannah: I liked that these stacking cups are made of plants rather than plastic. This will really appeal to families who are trying to reduce their plastic consumption. They feel good quality and well made, and the design is well thought out. This means they are really easy for little ones to handle and stack.

Would you choose this product to win?

Gina: The pretty pastel colours of these stacking cups make these stand out from other similar products on the market. The absolutely best this is that it’s not another plastic toy! Having an eco version of an old favourite is a brilliant thing. Sita nicely alongside wooden toys and they are also made to last. Brilliant that they can go in the dishwasher too!

Susan: I think this product should win. As well as functional and playful this product is moving away from plastics. I like that this is made of plant-based resin rather than plastic. I felt like the company was truly environmentally friendly because the packaging was all recyclable (cardboard). Also, rather than being shrink-wrapped in plastic, the string had been used to attach the cups to the rest of the packaging.

Claudia: I love that they are environmentally friendly and the colours are pretty pastels as opposed to the conventional bright plastics. They are compact so easy to take in your bag with you without adding any weight. I think they definitely deserve to be a strong contender for the award, my toddler loves them too and they make up all sorts of games together with them.

What changes would you make to this product?

Kate: When my little one has dropped them on the hard floor outside they have got a little bit scuffed - perhaps slightly more than they would have if they were plastic. However, this is just general wear and tear expected with a baby and has not affected the usability of the product. It would not put me off buying them again.

Karen: After much thought I'm really struggling to think of how these stacking cups could be improved. I think they are a very well designed take on a very simple and old idea and was particularly impressed that they are more eco-friendly than others. I will e investigating other products from this manufacturer as I have been very impressed with this product.

Ashleigh: If I could change one thing about the product it would be the case that is used to house the stacking cups. I would maybe have something see-through so the lovely design could still be seen but something that would keep all the stacking cups together so that they do not get lost in transportation. Overall a fab product.
