Pros: Lifetime guarantee, sturdy, dishwasher safe, textured exterior, attractive, great for travel
Cons: High upfront cost, but lifetime guarantee makes it worth the money
Tupperware Bell Tumblers were one of the very first Tupperware products that I ever owned. I bought my first set over 30 years ago, and they are still around today. Even though they are one of the most used cups for the kids, they are virtually indestructible, and made to last a lifetime.
I bought these before I had any kids. Although for the most part I use a larger glass myself, I use these for those times when I want a lesser amount to drink. The set of 4 tumblers hold 7 ounces each, which is plenty for most younger children, but may not be enough for an older child or adult. They have been used by everyone in the house from kids through adults.
You can purchase the Tupperware Sipper Seals separately and they become sippy cups for the little ones. There are also solid seals that are sold separately, which make these nice for bringing drinks along in the cooler or diaper bag.
As the name implies, Tupperware Bell Tumblers are tapered at the top, making them somewhat bell shaped. The interior of these tumblers is smooth for easy cleaning, and the exterior is textured, making them easier for little hands to grip. They are made of sturdy plastic and are easy to wash, either by hand or in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Tupperware Bell Tumblers have come in a large variety of colors over the years because Tupperware changes the available colors often. My collection includes well over a dozen different colors, and there are many more out there. The variety is nice because even when I was providing daycare, I could give each child a different color and always know which cup belongs to which child.
These cups can be used either with or without the Sipper Seals, depending on the age of the child. I always used the regular seals for carrying drinks in the cooler or diaper bag. Sometimes I freeze a partial cup of juice or Kool-Aid and pack it in a lunch for later. It keeps the lunch cold, and is usually thawed by lunchtime.
Like most Tupperware, these have a lifetime warranty against chipping, breaking, peeling or cracking under normal household use. The upfront cost of the tumblers is rather high, however the quality means that you won't have to replace them like most of the cheaper cups, and the lifetime warranty means that even if something happens, you can get them replaced by contacting any Tupperware Consultant. Mine have lasted well over 30 years so far, and are still going strong.
I recommend the Tupperware Bell Tumblers for anyone who needs a high quality, versatile tumbler that is smaller in size. They are a sturdy, multipurpose tumbler that works well for children and adults. With the seals they work great for travel, and with Sipper Seals they work great to help little ones transition from a bottle to a cup.
