**Product received for review.
When it comes to our children, we as mothers want only the best for them. Their health and safety are of our utmost priority. We want to surround them with products that we can feel safe with...and with all this talk of BPA, etc in plastics, that can be tough! What is an environmentally friendly mom supposed to do?
When it comes to eating and drinking, Silikids has you covered! Rather than plastics, they use silicone (and glass) to create adorable and SAFE products for kids. Why silicone? Let's take a look:
- Silicone is made from silicon (an element found in sand, quartz and rock). It is the second most abundant element on earth. It does not react with food or drinks, produce hazardous fumes or transmit taste to food. It's hypoallergenic and does not promote growth of bacteria or fungus.
- Silicone is nontoxic and does not contain bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates.
- It's durable so it will last for many years...and when the time comes, it can even be recycled too!!
For this review, they sent me a set of their adorable kids drinking glasses. You're probably thinking something along the lines of 'glasses and kids!?', right? Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen if you have a rambunctious kiddo like mine, but they are actually really great! They have a silicone sleeve that protects them from drops and bumps, making them more kid-friendly. STILL, they are glass and do need to be used with adult supervision. Though the silicone sleeves help protect them, they can still break and should be inspected after each fall. The sleeves also provide an easier grip for little hands as well with their thoughtful design.
Aside from being safer and more eco-friendly, Silikids products are also ridiculously cute! I'll be honest, I've used them myself as the perfect little juice cup and love the cute style. If they came out with the grown up version, I'd buy them!! There are currently only two color options, but both are fun and bright...and perfect for boy or girl!!
Overall, we love Silikids in our home. My son loves that he gets to feel like a big kid with a glass cup, and I love that they're safer and cute.
