Product Description

Mugs that let you play with your food!™  My first product is a hot chocolate mug with a basketball hoop that you shoot mini marshmallows in.  What’s great about my mug is that you can use it for things besides hot chocolate and marshmallows.  If you are having cereal for breakfast you can throw cheerios (or cocoa puffs etc.) through the hoop into the milk.  If you are having soup for lunch, you can throw oyster crackers.  My mugs can be used by kids of all ages (which includes adults).  Colleges, schools, and companies can put their logo on my mugs.  Eventually, I would like to create mugs for other sports (baseball, football, soccer, hockey) and even a clown face where you shoot the marshmallows into the mouth.  My vision is that the world will be a better place if you can play with your food!

    The basket looks pretty small. Have you tested it on different ages to see if younger kids are successful? That would be a great thing to add to your video, clips of showing different aged people shooting and making a basket. I, as a consumer, would hate to go to the trouble to buy something like this, get it and watch my little kid get frustrated and disappointed if he can't make a basket. Great idea, by the way. It would make a great game at the table and bring families together, something we need these days.

    Hi Max, this mug looks great! If you market it, I will buy two for my grand daughters! Let me know.
    Best regards to your mum (who may remember me) and your whole family.
