Play Ball!

Step up to the plate, or rather, mug with this home-run design by Max, a young entrepreneur and sports fan. Sure to score big with little leaguers or grown-up fans of the game, this grand-slam idea encourages everyone to play with their food. The oversized cup is shaped like half a baseball, and the handle sports a mini-glove to catch marshmallows for cocoa, crackers for soup, or toppings for ice cream. Made in Thailand.

Make it a collection with The Mug with a Hoop, The Mug with a Goalpost, The Mug with a Goal, and The Mug with a Net .

“Don't go too big at first because you may not sell that many. Keep it simple. And then if it's good keep doing it. Also, you should get other people to help you.”

Whiz kid Max is a young entrepreneur with a head full of ideas. With a vision that the world would be better if we could play with our food, his playfully creative spirit comes through in his interactive designs. At just eight, he created his first patent-pending piece—a sporty mug he came up with in art class. He was named one of the ten finalists for the Product Pitch at Fenway contest, an honor which led to him throwing out a pitch at Fenway Park!

Max's ventures also raise awareness and support for dyslexia, a cause close to his heart. He attends a special school dedicated to students with the learning disorder, and although it makes reading and writing challenging, Max and his family emphasize that those with dyslexia see and interpret the world differently. This silver lining is evident in the self-starting wunderkind's knack for product design.

      Otis absolutely loved it. His mother told me he wants to eat every meal in it and will not accept any other dinnerware. He is 3 years old and LOVES baseball. It is a great kid gift and will be enjoyed by them for many years.

          Comments about UncommonGoods The Mug with a Glove:

          Larger than I thought it'd be, more bowl than mug. Wasn't there when the gift recipient opened it, but it was a hit with others who saw it before I sealed it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The blue gift box and ribbon was very elegant. I'd paid to have it gift wrapped to save time, but also wanted to make sure the purchase had arrived intact and as shown online. Since it was in box w/ ribbon instead of sealed in wrapping paper, I was able to untie it to peek inside, then re-tie it. Very practical.

            Comments about UncommonGoods The Mug with a Glove:

            Bought this as a gift for someone who loves playing and watching baseball. The mug is a great size for tea/coffee/hot chocolate and can also serve as a small bowl for oatmeal or cereal. The design is great and adds fun to whatever its being used for!

            Service and delivery comments:

            Package shipped out quickly the day after I bought it and was packed with lots of bubble to avoid any damage.

            He liked it very much. He told me it was not as big as I thought it looked like in the picture. We were hoping for a large bowl like cup that he could eat one huge bowl of cereal out of but he said he uses it 3 times for cereal! LOL!

              Comments about UncommonGoods The Mug with a Glove:

              We got this as a Christmas gift for my son's friend. He loved it! We also added things to his mug/bowl for all the ways he could use it: mini cereal boxes, hot cocoa & marshmallows, ice cream toppings. Since it was a gift, I'm not sure if it's easy to use or clean but I was impressed with the size and quality of the mug/bowl. It was much heavier than I expected (in a good way).
