World Cup

Head some oyster crackers into your soup or score an assist of mini marshmallows in your cocoa with the Soccer Mug With a Goal. "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 mug for international football fans. The mug itself is shaped like half a soccer ball, adding a penalty kick of sport-specific detail. Made in Thailand.

Make it a collection with The Mug with a Hoop, The Mug with a Goalpost, The Mug with a Glove, and The Mug with a Net .

Due to the risk of breakage inherent with any ceramic product, the following has been added:

“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.

This item was given by me to my grandson for Hannukkah. He lives in St. Louis. I live in Madison, Wisconsin. He is eight years old and plays soccer, so he loves this bowl with the soccer design and uses it every day for cereal . My daughter only washed and dried it by hand because she did not want to take any chances it might break in the dishwasher. Just a few weeks ago she was drying it with a towel, and the soccer net portion of the bowl broke off. Fortunately your company was extremely helpful in arranging for a replacement, but I wonder if a closer look should be taken by your designers to see if the durability of this item could be improved.

The only problem i had with the product was the fact that there were two holes on the bottom,which when you run it thru the dishwasher it gets all full of water. My aunt said that when it was made she thinks the holes should have been filled in when done. She used to make pottery.

      Comments about UncommonGoods The Soccer Mug with a Goal:

      My nephew loves soccer, and his eyes lit up when opening this gift. He was excited to be able to use it, and his parents thought it was a very clever gift. It's something unique that not everyone has, and I was glad to be able to give him a present he liked that stood out from all the usual little boy gifts.
