Nuby's Flip-It Top Gator Grip Review

I think I may have mentioned it before, but I've noticed lately that I have an addiction to sippy cups. I didn't know there was such a thing until I opened my cabinet and realized that we have more sippy cups than we do adult drinking glasses. Although we have an abundant of sippy cups, Baby A would always rather drink out of my water bottle than his sippy, so I couldn't resist but to snag one of Nuby's Flip-It Top Gator Grip cups for him. 

The Flip-it Top Gator Grip comes in six cool colors such as green and purple, pink and blue, blue and green, and we were lucky enough to receive the very stylish orange and blue. I love the feature of the Gator Grip which gets its name from the Gator-like scale texture on the grip part, making it fun for your little monster!

The Nuby Flip-It Top Gator Grip is for ages 2+ but I decided to get it for Baby A (18 months) in hopes that he would want to drink out of his water bottle that is similar to mommy's. The cup has worked out wonderfully for us, the only thing that I can think of as to why it would be for ages 2+ is because there is no leak proof protection and lets just say we found that out the hard way and got the couch soaking wet! The Flip-It Top Gator Grip has a long straw that attaches to the lid (inside) and allows your child to easily suck their drink from the hard plastic straw top. 

When they're finished drinking from their Flip-It Top Gator Grip they easily push in the straw top to help prevent any accidental spills! 

Although Baby A still prefers to steal my water bottle whenever possible, the Flip-It Top Gator Grip has encouraged him to use his water bottle just like mommy's and he now prefers it over his other sippy cups. 

Pick one up for only $4.99 at Buy Baby Direct, Amazon, Target, or Walmart!

You've made the switch to cloth for your little one,
 now why not make the switch for yourself?


  1. TGIF Purty! Thankfully my household is out of the sippy cup stage because I have bought too many sippies and my son has lost them everywhere but in the house!
    Shabbat Shalom! Woo hoo! Not only is it the weekend-it’s spring break!
    How is your family planning to spend the vacation time?
    Hope whatever you wind up doing is super awesome!
    Ciao ciao for now!
    P.S. Did you see “How to DiY Bridal Makeup” on Amazon yet?

  2. Looks good! My son can't drink from a straw yet (he's 10 months), but I actually only started him on sippy cups really the last 6-8 he still has a long way to go.

  3. I love Nuby products!My granddaughter has just started using a straw,and this would be perfect for her.I love all the colors that they come in too.Nice review!

  4. These are the ONLY sippy cups I get my granddaughter!! Finally I found one that does not leak at all. You just don't know how many sippy cups I have been through this past year and a half. They all would leak. Thanks Nuby!!

  5. Nuby straw cups are the only cups i use. My daughter will only drink from a straw and these are by far the easiest to wash and do not leak or break.

  6. Thank you so much for this review. My son has issues with aspiration and must drink through a straw. Cannot tilt his head back to drink. You cannot tell from the packaging if it has a long straw in it. I was in Walmart frantically Googling to find out when I stumbled across this and your pictures. Thank you!

  7. I am so happy for your review. We have not bought any sippy cups yet, because our grandson is too young. I know we will have to endure the leaks before he can drink from a straw, but when he can, the Nuby Flip-It Top Gator Grip will be what we use.
