Thermos has joined the stainless steel sippy cup revolution with Foogo. Foogo products have vacuum insulation to insure your child’s beverage stay fresh (cold drinks only). Foogo is the first stainless steel sippy to have handles for little hands, and it is recommended for children as young as 6 months old. Thermos is also releasing other Foogo products, including a straw bottle and a food jar. I emailed Thermos to find out if the plastic spout and other parts are made with bpa plastic. John Golden
Consumer Service/Quality Assurance Manager quickly responded to my inquiry with, “The Foogo Sippy Cup liner is made of SUS304 Stainless Steel, which is the stainless that Thermos LLC uses on all of their products. The plastic used for the lid is polypropylene, recycle symbol 5, which is BPA free.” Foogo products are not available yet. The sippy cup is suppose to be on the market at the end of March (isn’t that now?), and the full line will be out in July. It appears the sippy cup will retail for $15. We’ll keep you posted.
