How Long Do Nuby Cups Last?

Does anyone know how long the rubber on the Nuby sippy cups will last (in storage)? I have numerous Nuby cups that our daughter didn't use. We're just now trying for our second child & by the time they are old enough to use the cup (2 years), I wonder if the rubber sippy part will still be good.

What can I do next?

The cups should be fine but I would buy new spouts. Rubber tends to degrate over time.

Rubber won't last , but silicon will. I used all my silicon nipples with my second son 3 years after my first.

Just my opinion. But, I would think that if she never used them, they should be fine.

My children are 3 years apart. I had some Nuby cups and others that were still good. Some of the Nuby ones were from the $1 bin at walmart, so I just got a new ones to replace any bad/overused ones.

You can buy replacement tops (the rubbery part only) on E-bay I just got 12 for about $18 and that included shipping. My daughter chews on them and so after a while they start leak but we didn't want to have to buy all new cups, no reason to waste more plastic if we could just get the new tops.

I don't see why they wouldn't be fine. My 3 year old still has some of those cups; we don't use them for our 9 month old because my 3 year old punctured the spout poking them with his finger and they leak some, not because the rubber went bad. I would just wash them and check the spout out. If you don't see any noticeable cracks I wouldn't worry about it.
