Violet has been begging and begging me to use a cup like mine a dinner – a real glass (cringe!). I have been putting it off, and telling her that I thought she may be a little to young to use real glass … she was not satisfied with my answer. Violet is a bit clumsy – just like her mama – and more often then not, her cup gets knocked over and spilled at dinner. Sometimes it ends up on the floor. The thought of this happening and resulting with broken glass all over is enough to make me want to switch all of our cups to plastic.

I will admit it though, I have been seriously considering giving her a glass. As I hear more and more about the health implications from using plastic, I can’t help but be drawn to the healthier option of glass. What is a mom to do?!

Thankfully, there is Silikids.

Silikids began in 2006 as a labor of love for two friends and moms, Giuliana Schwab and Stacey Feeley. With growing concerns about toxic materials in children’s products, Silikids was born; a children’s accessory company dedicated to making safe, clean and hygienic products out of SILICONE.

Through the years as the Silikids Kids grew up and new members were added to the family, the Silikids line gradually grew too.  Silikids makes a variety of products ranging from kneepads for crawling babies, silicone sleeves for glass baby bottles, jars and containers as well as glass cups for kids and adults protected by their patent pending Siliskin.

I had the chance to try out a Siliskin 6 oz cup for myself, and Violet is beyond thrilled. She feels like such a big girl using her “adult” glass at the dinner table, and she asks everyone that gets her a drink to please put it in her “new glass”.

This glass can be washed right in the dishwasher (on the top rack) with the Siliskin on – which is wonderful! It makes it so much easier and more enjoyable to use knowing that I don’t have to mess with anything – it is just ready to use. But, if I did have to change the Siliskin or take it off for some reason, it is very easy to do. I did try, and I was impressed with how easy it is to get on and off.

If you had any questions as to the effectiveness of this product, you have to check out this video! I was (and still am!) really impressed by it. I will admit that I have not tried this at home – you couldn’t pay me enough to get up on the roof – but it definitely increases my confidence in this product, and in letting my daughter use this product.

In addition to offering the Siliskin for glasses, Silikids also offer silicone cases for baby bottles, baby food jars, knee pads and bibs! You can purchase all Siliskids products directly through their website.
