penguin-cup-haberman.pngHaberman, the premium baby feeding products company, has launched a cool new penguin cup for toddlers. Based on the design of the gold award-winning Loved by Children bird cup heroes, these black and white non-spill trainer cups feature the famous Haberman® leak-proof valve.

Suitable for toddlers 6 months+, these cups are completely non-spill and the design protects growing teeth by allowing a flow of juice only when the child sucks and swallows. Add this to the eye-catching popular penguin shape and you have the ultimate must-have weaning product.

The first colony of penguin cups will torpedo into branches of Wm. Morrison and Sainsbury's this month.

RRP:  £4.95

Molt all at once, spending two or three weeks land-bound as they undergo what is known as a catastrophic molt.

Prone to Allergies? No worries. We are featherless and don't molt.

Penguins ingest a lot of seawater. They have a have a special 'supraorbital' gland behind their eyes that filters out and excretes ingested saltwater through their beaks, or by sneezing.


Fluid is excreted through our beak (spout) - but only in not out. The cup's in-built 'supraorbital' valve in our 'beak' (also known as the Haberman® valve) guarantees a non-spill experience and encourages sipping, not guzzling. No mess to clean up.

We don't sneeze or catch colds.
