Here’s a brilliant device that my brother or anyone with young boys needs to buy ASAP. My friend, Emily Baldwin, who’s a single mother of three boys invented the Number One Cup to help solve those “gotta go now” emergencies.
I know it’s not everyone’s favorite topic of conversation, but if you’re stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic and a young boy says he just can’t wait one more second to relieve himself, you need to act quick. The Number One Cup is simple to use and can be mastered quite easily by boys as young as age three (though practice makes perfect). On long road trips, it can be used several times and then emptied and rinsed to be ready for the next use.
The cup is made from PETE (Polyethylene terephthalate, considered a safe plastic by numerous health authorities), is tapered to fit into most car cupholders, and features a tethered lid and finger grips sized for smaller fingers (to avoid slipping). It also comes with three sanitary hand wipes for on-the-go hygiene. And so no one mistakenly drinks from the cup, Emily’s son came up with a kid-friendly version of the skull and crossbones logo. Brilliant!
The Number One Cup is currently available in orange and black, is made in America and is BPA-free and retails for $14.95.
