Soft Buggy Cup
“Other than the Snap and Go I used for Cole, I’ve never had a built in cup holder on any of my strollers. In fact, I didn’t even use one until Nate was about a year old. I got one at Babies R Us and attached it to my Maclaren. It lasted only a few months until a family member broke it off by accident when placing it into the trunk of our car.
The cup holder is a beautiful thing – I almost always have a lemonade or a coffee as I walk through the mall pushing one or both kids – but I haven’t had much luck with them.
The latest cup holder I’ve seen is from Think King. I love the concept – it’s actually made of a soft mesh material, meaning it’s pliable and can get squashed in the car without breaking off like the plastic cupholders do.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this would work – would it be sturdy enough to hold one of my drinks as I push the stroller around? I finally tested it out last weekend at the mall and I’m happy to report that it held a hot Chai Latte as I circled around the mall. It was a sturdy hold too; I didn’t worry about it falling off at all. It also attaches very easily with several velcro straps and has to be the easiest cup holder to attach.”
