I'm in the market for some new ones. The ones we've used forever The Gerber graduate cups are no where to be found anymore. Except on Amazon, where they are going for a crazy 10-19 dollars a cup! They are the only ones I've had luck with for not leaking. Some how they've all dissapeared and we're down to 2.
Which ones do you have luck with?
We're no longer using sippy cups for Jake (YAY!!!), but we had a lot of luck with the Tommee Tippee (sp?) cups. I only used the final stage cups (24 mos?) and they were great. Never leaked, easy to clean, and easy to use.

I like the take and toss ones for Alicia. She's also done well with the Playtex hard and straw cups. http://www.beso.com/rd2?t=http%3A%2F...d=44&mpid=6488
They are relatively easy to clean too. DJ loves the straw, but hasn't quite got it down yet. He's still using the Nuby ones; http://www.nubysippycup.com/ also easy to clean, spill proof, but the mouth part breaks down after about 8 months of use and it starts leaking.

I have tried so many and found that I really like the First Years ones. Here is a link to them (Deacon has the Cars ones, not princess, ha)
No extra pieces to pull apart to wash and no leaking. Not a HUGE fan of having to get character cups but at the same time I prefer easy cleaning so I would buy anything to save on pulling apart spouts.
ETA - these are the ones we have: http://www.amazon.com/Cars-Insulated...9294654&sr=1-7
I have recently been through about 5 different styles of cups and I really only have liked two. I like the straw ones b/c Jordan drinks out of them better but I hate cleaning them and they LEAK.
I bought an insulated Avent cup and it works pretty well. It might leak a few drops but it doesn't leave puddles behind like our straw cups did. It's nice to have at least one insulated cup.
My sister swears by these. Is that what you were talking about but say you couldn't find?
My sister told me I could find them at Target or Walmart. Well, I went to two Walmarts, one Target and BRU and couldn't find them. She finally went to her Target and they had two left so she bought them for me. Did they discontinue this cup??? I hope not b/c we have two now and they are my favorite. And I've tried plenty to know that most sippy cups suck.
Blech, I despise sippies and all of their cleaning! We did use the Tommie Tippie ones with no straw, they were okay, but thankfully Jackson switched to cups on his own pretty early. With this next one, I've decided all I'm going to use is Klean Kanteens. We have a bunch of 12 oz ones already, Jackson uses the sport top on them, so I'll just either have to buy a few Avent spouts for them, or just get a few whole new ones anyways. We LOVE our Klean Kanteens and I just don't want to deal with plastic anything anymore.
Ava was off sippy cups for a while too, but she's in this new phase where meal times are a huge battle. We have a rule, that you don't have to eat, but you do need to sit nicely until everyone else has had a chance to eat. Ava things this rule is crap and is protesting by tossing her milk cup, which leads to a string of time outs until the fits are over. Super fun. So until the milk tossing is over, she is back in a sippy.
Kayla-Yes! those are the ones. We have had such good luck with them. I'm so sad they dissapeared from the stores. I even made a special trip to BRU and no luck there either. The kids love them. You found them cheaper on Amazon than I did. I'll have to grab some of them. Thanks!
Kristen- That's interesting they make a sippy adapter for Klean Kanteen. We have Sigg bottles, wonder if there is one for them too? I'll have to do some looking. Tell me about the Avent spouts. Are they made specifically for KK or do they just happen to fit the bottles?
I'm pretty sure the adapter is made specifically for KK, but then once you have the adapter, you can use any age Advent spout on it. So as they get older, you just have to buy new spouts, not a whole new zippy, like usual.
