What a bright idea!

Litecup is the only reduced spill childrens' cup with an integrated night light! The comforting night light means the cup can be placed anywhere near your little one's bed and still be easy to find - it is also light sensitive so you don't need to remember to turn it off! Litecups come with a blue light base but there are also separate red light bases available.

The Inspiration!

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 - the only spill-proof cup with an integrated nightlight. which means your child can always see their drink in the dark. so they won’t knock it over, make a mess – and wake you up. Litecup supports independent mess free drinking for your child - day or night!

Different sizes, for different size kids!

If you think Litecup might be too big for your child, don’t worry. There’s a Little Litecup too. And now Litecupbaby has arrived! So all your kids can have one of their own.

Why is it different?

A softer approach, that makes drinking easier.

Unlike many non-spill valve cups and beakers – where you have to suck harder than you do on a bottle to drink – Litecup has a softer approach. The innovative 360-degree valve opens with a small suck, stays open while you drink, and then automatically seals when your lips leave the cup. It also means you can drink from anywhere around the rim. Which is more natural, just like a regular 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!
