The litecup was created by a parent who wanted a better cup for his children. It just so happens that this parent was also an industrial designer - how handy! From his studio in Putney south west London he started working on a drinking valve that could be non spill but also provide the most natural drinking experience possible. he created the litecup - a clean and colourful cup with an integrated night-light. to support independent mess free drinking for your child - day or night!
It seems a bit strange to have a cup or beaker that you have to suck harder on than a bottle to get the liquid out - but a lot of non spill valve cups or beakers in the market are like this. the litecup has a softer approach to drinking. the valve itself comes open with a small suck and then it stays open while you drink and automatically seals when your lips leave the cup - providing a natural drinking experience much more like a normal cup. it's spill proof not 100% leak proof - if your child holds it upside down and shakes it vigorously small drops will come out. sometimes if it gets pushed along on bedsheets the valve can also get held open and then the water could come out - see 100% disclosure! We like it this way though - we think it's the best balance of great drinking experience while still minimising life's disruptions. we hope you do too.
