Tommee Tippee Sipppy Cut

Introducing the Tommee Tippee limited edition sippy cup line. It's called the "Three Ring Circus" Collection. It features a new design on the brands signature spill proof Drink Cup, Sporty Bottle, Spout Cup and Straw Cup. Check out he picture to see the new designs. They are now available at Babies R Us they sell for right around $7.00 for a 2 pack and come in both boy and girl colors.
I used Tommee Tippee spill proof drink cups when the girls were younger I think I had all the styles at one time or another. I honestly loved the cups they worked great and I think the only time I ever had trouble with them leaking was when my daughter would get the lid loose.  They are great cups and they both of my girls loved them. We received a two pack of the new straw cup design and even though my girls are a tad big for spill proof cups they are in love with them. My 4 year old has drank so much water in the last week I am starting to wonder if she is going to float away.
I only have one small issue with the new straw cups we received. Some times the girls complain that they cant get anything out of it when the cup is full.  I think the girls are just sucking too hard on the straw and collapsing the soft flexible portion of it. They are older kids 6 and 4 and have more sucking power than a toddler does.
Like many spill proof cups there are a couple pieces you need to take apart when you wash. Its not a big deal for me and I found them to be simple enough to take apart and put back together.

Disclosure: I received a two pack of the Tommee Tippee Straw cup to test out for this review. All opinions are my own or that of my kids.

Protect It therapeutic Diabetic Sock

The product of the day is Protect It Therapeutic Diabetic Socks. These socks are recommended for people with diabetes, arthritis and sensitive feet. There are some key features that make these socks special: Protect It Therapeutic Diabetic Socks have a smooth-inside seamless toe, They gently hug your foot so they stay in place, They help to prevent skin injury and infection, Proven anti-bacterial, anti-odor, soft wide-stretch top and they keep feet dry. You can find them Here  they sell for around $40.77 for a pack of four. Which comes out to be about 11.99 a pair.  They have several different styles to
choose from Comfort crew, Comfort dress, and Active ankle sport. They come in either black or white.

I am not a Diabetic but my grandma was and my mom is border line which means she is still able to control it with her diet so doesn't need medicine just yet. She has been having trouble with cold feet and she also suffers from arthritis.  She was excited to hear that she was going to get a chance to try out a pair of Protect It Socks.
Things she Liked the best:
The arch support with anti slip technology, it helps to keep the sock in place without compression.
The Y heel pocket she said it cupped her heal well and made them more comfortable when wearing shoes.
She loved the soft feel of the fabric and seamless toe. She often has problems with seams rubbing so this was very nice. These are not a heavy winter sock so I was a little concerned at how they would do during our cold winter days. My mom has reported that they are keeping her feet surprisingly warm. I think this is due to the dual layer construction that wicks moisture away from your skin.

Over all she felt they were great socks and is refusing to let me try them.

Disclaimer: I received this item free of charge in order to test this product for the review. All opinions are my own or that of my Kids or in the case of this review my mom.
