Entrepreneurs: Hanna Lim
LollaCup is a sippy cup product inspired by Mark and Hanna Lim’s kids. To help young children drink effectively, even when the cup is tilted a flexible straw is designed with a weighted end that anchors in the liquid.
All parts and materials conform to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s regulations and are FDA-approved.
It is easy for young children to sip the handle because the straw is valve-free, making it easily removable from the base of the cup for placement in most cup holders. The handles detach with a simple twist in case you’re on the go but are also great for toddlers’ little hands.
