Ark’s Honey Bear Straw Drinking Cup


This is a great tool for teaching toddlers how to drink from a straw. The straw will hold the liquid up in the straw so they can be more successful in getting the liquid out. You can adjust how far up the straw the liquid will go and stay depending on their skill level.
It also has a lip blocker attachment that helps keep their lips and tongue in the correct position for drinking and swallowing.
