Hanna created the Lollacup to fill a void that she saw in the marketplace. When her daughter was nine-months-old, she was able to drink from a straw, and her pediatrician suggested weaning her directly to a straw instead of a traditional sippy cup. Hanna purchased several toddler straw cups but realized that her daughter couldn’t get a sip out of any of them. Inspired, she set out to create a cup with a valve-free straw and weighted end so that children could drink from the straw at any angle – and Lollacup was born. Hanna Lim is the mother of three daughters and is the co-founder and president of Lollaland. Prior to creating the Lollacup, Hanna received her Masters in Education at UCLA and worked as a high school chemistry teacher. In her spare time, she is active in several parenting groups, serves on the board of the Wellesley College Club of Pasadena, and is a volunteer member of Kidspace Museum’s Circle of Friends.
