Shoot, Score!

Mini marshmallows, oyster crackers, fruity cereal. Why do they make kids' food so fun if they're not allowed to play with it? At age 8, kid-preneur Max decided to change all that. He designed this playful mug to make meal time a slam dunk.

But the piece is more than just a fun way to snack. $5 from your purchase supports Understood.org, an online resource for parents of children with learning disabilities, to help families get the knowledge and support they need. It makes a thoughtful gift for children with special learning needs, kids who love sports, or any little one who loves play time (all of them, right?). Made in Thailand.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

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

“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.
