Husband and wife team Mark and Hanna Lim set out to find the perfect sippy cup for their baby daughter. When they couldn't find one that worked well, they created their own!

It is also BPA and phthalate free, and made in the USA to ensure quality. They know they can make it cheaper elsewhere but why risk the health of a child to save a couple of dollars. They know they have a fantastic product, they just need a little help from the sharks to make Lollacup a huge success.
