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.

My granddaughter used hers for tea and my grandson used his for cereal but thought of many other uses for them.

Cute mug!!

My daughter uses this for hot cocoa and tosses marshmallows into the basket. It is large enough that she can also use it as a bowl. She loves it.

Fun and sturdy

My cousin's youngster is basketball and hot chocolate obsessed so this was the perfect gift! Really sturdy stoneware stays put even when bumped around in aggressive games of marshmallow horse. Just remember not to fill too high to account for splashing though the bowl holds plenty of liquid so you shouldn't need to.

Coltrane is 7 years old and really into basketball. He loved his new bowl. Left my house with it in his hands and would not let them put it back in the box. Has eaten every meal with it and loves to play HOOPS with it. Will be enjoyed for years to come therefore longer lasting value than a toy.
