Mug Madness

"The world would be better if we could play with our food!" That's the maxim of Max, the kid entrepreneur and sports fan who created this functional and fanciful basketball Mug With a Hoop™ at the tender age of 8 in his art class. Now you can slam dunk some oyster crackers in your soup or shoot a 3 pointer of mini marshmallows in your cocoa. Made in Thailand. Visit our blog to learn more about Max and his designs.

Make it a collection with The Mug with a Glove and The Mug with a Goalpost.

Due to the nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

  • the maker
Max .

Max .

Max is a kid entrepreneur with a head full of ideas, a few patents pending, and an awesome basketball-inspired mug designed when he was just eight years old. With a vision that the world would be better if we could play with our food, his playfully creative spirit is evident. 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 venture also raises awareness and support for dyslexia, a cause close to his heart. Max attends a special school dedicated to students with the learning disorder and although it makes reading and writing challenging, dyslexia can benefit creative pursuits like Max's. He and his family emphasize that those with dyslexia see and interpret the world differently, and this silver lining is evident in Max's aptitude for product design. collection

      Comments about THE MUG WITH A HOOP:

      My friend loves basketball and to play with her food, so when I gave her this she almost died of excitement, she immediately had to have chocolate milk with some marshmallows to throw. It's exactly as shown, and although it can be a little rough to clean out the basketball hoop (I suggest using a spray hose) it is an amazing gift.

                This is a fun product and great for any basketball fan. We use it to dunk our marshmallows in our hot chocolate and most recently for cereal. It was bought as a Father's Day Gift for my husband the basketball coach and our son loves it so much, we're purchasing one for him now. What's even more special is the story behind this gift. So sweet!

                          Bought this as a birthday gift for a friend and she loved it ! It was shipped quickly and intact. I was a little dissapointed with the overall polished look of the piece. Paint job looked rushed, but the hoop was great and was fun to use marshmallows.

                              I bought this for my son's 28th birthday. Still a kid at heart and loves to play sports and watch basketball. I will wrap it with some hot chocolate and mini marshmallows. I should be good for a laugh if nothing else.
