RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application claims priority to U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/133,467, filed Jun. 30, 2008, titled “Drinking Vessel,” to Holly E. Blair, the entire disclosure of which is expressly incorporated by reference herein.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to drinking vessels in general, specifically to drinking vessels intended for use by babies and/or toddlers having an anti-spilling function.

BACKGROUND AND

SUMMARY

OF THE INVENTION

Children are often given spill proof cups, such as sippy cups, until they are old enough to avoid spilling liquid from adult cups. Such cups often have valves or are otherwise designed to prevent liquids from leaving the cup to avoid messes associated with cups being dropped or knocked over.

According to an embodiment of the present invention, a child drinking vessel is provided including a body defining an interior region configured to contain a beverage to be consumed by a child; a lid coupled to a top end of the body to provide an anti-spill seal with the container to avoid the beverage draining from between the body and the lid; the lid including an opening to allow the beverage to be consumed by the child; a base coupled to a bottom end of the body; and electronics positioned in the base and including a plurality of light emitting devices configured to emit light into body or emitting sounds.

Additional features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art upon consideration of the following detailed description of the illustrative embodiment exemplifying the best mode of carrying out the invention as presently perceived.
