Munchie Mug – A spill proof snack cup. Great for the car, on planes, at daycare and at home. A few reasons we like it: when toddlers take snacks out of other products, they often drop some.

Also, the opening where kids put their hands through is made of spandex which is easy on their hands. Price $16.99-$17.99
