Mandy Haberman , an award winning English inventor, decided to invent the technology to create a totally non-drip trainer cupy when she saw a toddler spilling blackcurrant juice all over her friend’s carpet.
Having successfully invented the Haberman Feeder in the 1980s, she decided to create a toddler’s drinking cup with a unique valve that is moulded into the mouthpiece to ensure that the spout seals between sips, so absolutely no spills. The risk of tooth decay is also minimized because drink only flows when the child drinks.
Hence, the Anywayup Cup was created in 1990.
In 2000, Mandy received the title British Female Inventor of the Year; and in 2003 was recognised by Queen Elizabeth II as a ‘Pioneer to the Life of the Nation’.
