California-based Lollaland® is the result of one savvy mom’s observation – noticing her 9-month old daughter effortlessly drinking from a straw held to her mouth, she checked with her pediatrician who recommended weaning to a straw cup rather than a traditional sippy cup. After buying several toddler straw sippy cups yet failing to replicate the prior success, she determined the problem was the spill-proof valves. Instead of giving up, she saw an opportunity to create a straw cup that was not only easy to use and clean but safe because it would be (BPA-free). The child-friendly alternative to the traditional sippy cup features a valve-free, weighted straw that helps infants and toddlers successfully use a straw. Today the business is dedicated to offering smart feeding choice for babies and toddlers; products include the colorful Lollacup sippy cups and replacement straws along with 3-piece children’s meal sets made of BPA and phthalate-free polypropylene.
