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, 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.

              Everyone loved "playing" with this bowl. Over the holidays it held everything from cereal to small candies. My two year old grandson was glad when he finally got to take it home with him.

                My basketball-loving son got a kick out of this gift. He doesn't really use it for food, which I was surprised about. He keeps it in his room and puts his change, school lanyard, etc. in it. #sweepstakes
