Some are friendly and furry, and others look poised to snap you with claws or wrap you with tentacles – from spiders to swans, you never know what you will find at the bottom of these “Creature Cups” coffee (or tea) mugs.
The exterior of each one is conspicuously identical and unassuming, so for guests come to visit for the first time, the shock will definitely catch them off guard – for those in the know, though, they will still always get a little surprise with their final sips.
“Each design comes in a color specific to its theme. The Creatures of the SEA have the Wedgewood Blue exterior. Creatures of the LAND have the Cobalt Blue exterior. The Creepy Cups have the Black exterior. The Limited Editions will vary in an array of colors. “
“The volume measurement does include the creature, which will reduce the volume by 0.5-2oz depending on the creature. The creatures do not scale with the cup, so the creature in the 11oz is the same size as the 15oz. All 11oz cups are 3.2″ height and 4.1″ diameter, weighing 0.8lbs. All 15oz cups are 3.5″ height and 4.2″ diameter, weighing 1lb. Creature bowls are 25 oz. with dimensions of 3″ height and 7″ diameter.”
