Build-On Brick Mug
The Build-On Brick Mug is an innovative and clever Coffee Mug design from ThinkGeek which comes in a variety of colors which includes Red, Blue and Grey with the Grey been the better looking of the set. The mug itself looks like something straight out of a lego movie which adds to its allure as a cool item to own as it has taken the traditional and made it super cool for those creative minds out there who want to build something while they have their coffee.
The Coffee Mug holds a capacity of 12 oz and is hand washable, in case you are worrying about your health as you should be its made out of BPA-free plastic. The real cool factor is that you can use your building bricks and create a true work of art straight from your wildest imagination and bear in mind that this is not a toy but a functional mug that would make for a great gift for a true geek at heart that loves legos.
What inside the Packaging?
The box that this product comes in is beautifully designed with a preview of the product and its features on the box, you can also see the Build-On Brick Mug through a clear preview window to the side.
The mug itself is almost normal looking outside its package except for the pins and stubs as found on lego bricks or similar items which are not included in the package.
What types of bricks work with this Mug?
The only type of bricks or blocks that are 100% compatible are LEGO TM, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, K’NEX Bricks TM and do remember these are not included in the package and have to be purchased separately.
How well does the Build-On Brick Mug actually work as a Mug?
The cup is perfect for holding liquids and it will not leak and will work just as a regular mug would and its also made from none toxic plastic making it very safe for holding food or drink for consumption.
Truth be told it does feel awkward when drinking from it due to the outer design but its not impossible but smaller kids might have an issue mastering this one so this is for the serious lego enthusiast or collector but at the end of the day its a very cool mug.
This thing is Awesome!!
The possibilities with this Coffee mug are endless and its only limited by your imagination. So if the functionality as an actually drinking mug is not all super practical you will be blown away by what can actually be built with this and the rite lego set, imagine mechanizing this bad boy to really up the wow factor.
