MVP Mug

Sure to score big with little leaguers or grown-up fans of the game, this touch-down idea encourages everyone to play with their food. Designed by Max, a young entrepreneur and sports fan, the oversized cup is shaped like half a football, and the handle sports a mini-field goal 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 Goal, The Mug with a Glove, 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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods The Mug with a Goalpost:

      My brother uses it for whatever he wants (mostly cereal) often and it's survived the dishwasher, so I'm giving it five stars. It says mug, but it's bigger than an average mug. Good for ice cream, as advertised, soup, drinks for mugs, etc.
