The plastic drinking cups have spill-proof tops, easy-grip sides with detachable handles and were sold in clear with coloured lids and a variety of colours and character prints.

Some of the cups include short phrases on the front of the cups including: "You Pour I'll Fling," or "Drink Drop Repeat." The cups have an approximately 200 to 300 millilitre (7 to 10 ounce) capacity and were sold for children ages 4 to 12 months.

Mould can develop on the removable, one-piece, white valve inside the spill-proof Tommee Tippee Sippee cups when it remains wet/moist and is infrequently cleaned. Mould ingestion may pose a risk of gastrointestinal symptoms and infections in consumers with compromised immune systems.
