Zippy Straws

Rate this product

Zippy Straws kits enable kids to build their own fun and creative drinking straws, and there's no reason that adults can't have fun with them, too. Each kit comes with 80 pieces, including straws and connectors, that you can use to make straws that look like boats, trucks, castles, cars, and more. You'll get straw pieces in four different colors, plus various connectors in five colors that will allow you to connect two to five straws. Every Zippy Straws kit also comes with a building guide, which will provide you with instructions for 20 fun straws you can make if you're not sure where to start.

The Claim

When you use a Zippy Straws kit, it'll be much more fun to drink a standard glass of milk, juice, soda, or whatever beverage you have on hand. Once you connect your pieces to make a fancy straw, you'll be able to see your drink travel all the way through the straw, due to the fact that each straw piece is translucent. If you use the included "crazy" spectacles made out of straws, you'll even be able to see the liquid pass directly in front of your eyes. After you have your fun, you won't have a big mess to clean up, as with gentle use, Zippy Straws won't leak or break apart and spill.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Zippy Straws is $10.00 plus $5.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Zippy Straws by paying the extra shipping fee of $5.95 for a total price of $21.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Zippy Straws being discontinued. Zippy Straws may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Each straw piece within your Zippy Straws kit can be attached to one or more others with one of the included connectors. These connectors, which are made from recycled rubber, will enable you to make a leak-proof straw that won't break apart, due to their ability to create an airtight seal. Hence, you can connect as many pieces as you choose and your liquid will travel through them smoothly, without causing your structure to collapse.


  • Made With Bpa Free Plastic

    All of the pieces found within a Zippy Straws kit have been made with plastic that is free of the potentially harmful chemical bpa, which is found within some plastic products.

  • Four Straw Colors

    In your Zippy Straws kit, you'll get more than 50 translucent straw pieces of various lengths that can be connected together. These come in four different colors, including yellow, green, orange, and pink.

  • Six Types of Connectors

    Each kit also includes six different types of connectors in shades of pink, red, blue, orange, and green. There are 19 connectors in total, and some will enable you to connect four or five different straw pieces.

  • Crazy Glasses Included

    Besides the pieces that you can use to build your own straws, every Zippy Straws kit includes a pair of crazy glasses that you can wear and use as a drinking straw simultaneously. Like the straw pieces in each kit, these are translucent, and they come in a clear shade.

  • Comes With Building Guide

    All Zippy Straws kits include a building guide that will teach you how to make 20 different types of straws.

Easy to Use

  1. Simple Cleaning Process

    After you're done with your Zippy Straws for the time being, you can break them apart and rinse the pieces off under the tap to ready them for the next use. If you've used them with liquid only, no other cleaning is required.

Positive Points

  • Suitable for Girls and Boys

    You can make virtually anything with a Zippy Straws kit, and the pieces come in a variety of colors ( instead of just pink and purple, or just dark shades ). Therefore, the kits will be appealing to kids of both genders.

  • Fun to Use at Parties

    If you've got a group of kids to entertain at a birthday party, a family reunion, or some other gathering, bringing out a few Zippy Straws kits will be an ideal way to do so. The kids will stay busy and stimulated for up to hours at a time, seeing who can make the wackiest or most attractive straws.

  • Makes Great Gift

    A Zippy Straws kit will make a fun gift for a child on their birthday, at Christmas, or on any other special occasion. However, you should make sure the child has passed the stage of putting small things in their mouth before you give it to them, as some of the connectors are quite small.

  • Can Mix Drinks

    If your straw pieces are connected in such a way that your straw has three ends, you can drink two drinks at the same time. Just put one end in each drink, and the other in your mouth, and get started.


  • Standard Drinking Straws

    Of course, kids can drink their juice, milk or whatever they choose out of a standard drinking straw, but this might get boring for them, and therefore may result in many unfinished drinks.

Discontinued Product Upset Daughter

I ordered them online for my daughter, waited the 6 weeks and nothing. I called them and they said they sometimes had issues with their website, even though I received a confirmation number. Ordered again during the phone call. They said 2-3 weeks, waited again, nothing, called again, was told they were on backorder and would ship in 2-4 weeks. Waited again, still nothing, called today, they couldn't find order, than said they were discontinued. Their website is still active. This is fraudulent, and upsetting to kids.
