Rare Disney Character on a Great Mug
The second quote that Disney chose for their Wisdom Collection is taken from the movie Mulan. That allowed them to pick a very rare character for some of the items released. That, combined with it being part of a series, turned this mug into a popular item right from the start.
The quote chosen comes from the Emperor. When we meet him near the end of the movie, he praises Mulan by saying “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” That quote is on one side of the mug. The other features a couple characters from the movie, and pretty much the characters you’d expect. That’s right, we get Mushu and Cri-Kee. While Mushu has shown up on quite a few things over the years, I feel like Cri-Kee is much rarer.
The color this month is red. The mug is a vibrant red, and the characters are done in shades of red. The quote is in silver with a couple words being done in yellow to help them really stand out. It is a lot of fun.
The mugs in this series are short and wide. They may not look like it, but they will hold 14 ounces easily. They are wide enough they take up a little extra room in your dishwasher, but they are dishwasher and microwave safe. The bottom is a little narrower, so you can stack the mugs in this series on top of each other, which means they take up a little less room in your cupboards. That’s a good thing since I’m pretty much out of room as it is.
The characters and quote combine for a fun mug. I was glad to add this to my collection, and I’m looking forward to more.
