One of the things I like about this time of year is the chill in the air when the sun goes down or that magical time when the world takes a breath just before the sun comes up. The morning coffee is more welcome. Not only does it wake you up but it warms you up as well. As the sun hits the horizon a bit earlier every day that afternoon tea is more anticipated. With the holiday season quickly coming upon us there are a number of new ways to enjoy your favorite hot drink. One of those ways is with Disney’s Winnie the Pooh characters.
I’ve always been told save the best for last but this is a really beautiful mug that has all of the Pooh characters in silhouette at dusk. They appear to be returning home after a day of playing. The colors are twilight purple and a soft burnt orange. You can almost feel the cool air of the evening as you enjoy Pooh, Piglet and everyone else frolicking home. C’mon, I know the thought of it is bringing a smile to your face. There are more pictures here .Go take a look!
On most of the Pooh mugs that Disney offers It’s rare for you to find Christopher Robin among the rest of the cast. This particular mug has a white background with Christopher Robin and Pooh leading the whole gang. It’s a simple design but it highlights the characters for you with no distractions.
There is also this Tigger mug that is more modern in it’s design but also captures the spirit of Tigger and is just plain fun! Every time I look at Tigger he reminds me of someone I know at work. He’s as animated and hyperactive as Tigger and is in his 40’s.
The counterpoint to Tigger is of course Eeyore. Tigger has a ton of fans but so does Eeyore. This particular mug shows Eeyore among a bunch of lavender flowers looking almost happy.
All of these designs appear to be retired. Once they are gone they’re gone. So check them out, tell me what you think. If you have any comments please leave them. If you know about any other cool Pooh mugs let me know. I would love to see them.
