Kid Basix Review + Giveaway - Stainless Steel BPA & Phthalate Free Sippy Cup

I am extremely excited about this review and giveaway and I know you will be too. After reading my last two posts on the dangers of certain chemicals in plastics, namely BPA and Phthalates, I am thrilled to tell you about Kid Basix! I am going to give you an overview of their items and also share my personal experience with The Safe Sippy2™ .

Kid Basix offers bottles, sippy/straw cups, and water bottles with one simple goal in mind: Clean in, Clean out. As a mother that sounds like my kind of motto!


All of Kid Basix's items are free of BPA and other harmful chemicals present in many plastic bottles.

Now what is so special about stainless steel? Let's have them tell you in their own words:

"Why go stainless when so many BPA-free plastic bottles are available now? We can give you 300 billion reasons. That’s the approximate number of plastic water bottles discarded around the world every year. Enough to power 12 million cars for an entire year. And that’s just the water bottles! It doesn’t include all the plastic bottles used for sodas, sports drinks, fruit juices and the like. All told, the plastic bottles we throw away each year would reach to the moon and back – 1500 times. So using reusable stainless steel bottles makes sense on every level: personal, local and global."


Bret, the founder of Kid Basix, personally sent me The Safe Sippy2™ to try for my daughter. This is the world's first and only 2-in-1 sippy to straw bottle. When I received it in the mail I was immediately in love with the look, feel and versatility of this product. But of course the real test was on my daughter. She has never mastered the straw concept. I have used a traditional sippy cup with her from day one. But I thought this fancy cup would be up for the challenge.


When I first gave her the cup, she immediately loved it! She didn't let go of it for an hour! She loved the handles that perfectly fit in her chubby little hands, and of course the color and texture of the cup helped too. It took her a couple times to really get the hang of drinking from the cup since the spout is shaped differently from the sippy cups she was used to, but she was soon a pro. AND I am proud to say she was drinking from the cup using the straw method within 5 minutes, I was astonished!


The Safe Sippy2™ comes with a straw & straw adaptor, travel plug and sippy plug. Also included is a dust cap which comes in handy when you have to throw the cup in your purse. I haven't had to use the travel plug yet since it doesn't leak at all with the sippy plug in.




Overall I would give this item 5 stars! And I am REALLY looking forward to trying one of Kid Basix's Safe Sporter Water bottles.

  1. I think these are great! I like that you can use it as a sippy or a straw. My son never got the sippy part, but does great with a straw. I like the green one.

  2. I love that it can go from a sippy cup to a straw bottle. This is a great idea! Would like it in pink =)

  3. My favourite aspect is the conversion from regular sippy to straw... one less cup to buy! I would love a nice, gender-neutral green!

  8. Definitely the lack of BPA and that it's made of stainless-steel. Blue is my favorite sippy color (well, pink is, but I have boys).

  10. Hey Leigh! I totally love that there is a kid-friendly stainless steel cup out there! I had heard about all the crazy chemical warnings connected to the use of plastic water bottles, and knew that my options were limited to the expensive stainless steel thermos styles, but that still meant that I'd have to transfer the contents to a bottle or sippy cup. Checked out Kid Basik, and am excited that there's now one problem solved! I totally would love to have the blue one!
