    Ours are nearly 8 and 10, and still drink from plastic cups.

    10 year old had managed to break 4 plastic cups this year... i have no idea how.
    8 year old loves his plastic cup and doesn't want a different one.

    They drink from glasses in restaurants (and 10y old ALWAYS breaks hers).

    3 years old. However DD does usually have a plastic cup at dinner because I worry she'll drop a glass if her fingers are slippery (at 4 she still manages to get sticky fingers at dinner time).

    The boys always have glass, have done for years and they're 8, 8, 12 & 14.

    Our DD is almost 5. She's been drinking from glasses when in cafe's / restaurants for around 2 years.

    I've only just started her on glasses to drink from with dinner .... Was wondering if I'm late starting

    My kids drink from glasses when we are out and have done since maybe 2 or 3yo but at home still use plastic cups or their water bottles. No particular reason, DD still likes her Dora and Frozen plastic cups and DS couldn't care but he's the eldest and more likely to break something!

    Just after 14 months with both children, we've never had any issues. Even at work (child care center) we give out toddlers and up glassware

    DD (3) has had a glass occasionally since she first learnt to drink from a cup. Mostly, she drinks from plastic cups or water bottles. She never drops them, but knocks them over constantly because she's not paying attention.
    Mostly she still uses plastic cups because there's only one cupboard she can reach and open herself (it's down low with no locks) and that only has plastic stuff in it.

    Wow! A whole room of toddlers with glass. I can't imagine trying to keep them all away when 1 gets broken. That must take some effort.

    The day care we attended in Melbourne also only used glasses.

    We use these. They are unbreakable.
