It May Be What’s Inside this Mug that Counts, but the Outside is Pretty Great, Too
Okay, let’s be honest. As much fun as mugs are, we really care most about what is in them. But it is hard not to get excited when we find a cool looking mug with great characters on it.
In this case, I am referring to the tenth mug in the Disney Wisdom Collection, inspired by a quote from the beginning of Aladdin. “Like so many things, it’s not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” We may have fun talking about what you put in your mug that makes it so great, but when it comes to people, this is absolutely true. It is what is inside, as shown by your actions, that ultimately counts toward who you are.
The mug this month is blue since Genie is our featured character. He and Abu are on one side of the mug in varying shades of blue. Yes, Abu is blue as well, but it works somehow. He is holding the lamp, and Genie has one hand up in a “ta-da” gesture.
The other side of the mug features the quote itself. The words are mainly in a couple shades of red, which stands out well on the blue background. The doodles around the quote mainly look like fireworks this month, which I love since it reminds me of the end of the movie.
As with the other mugs in the series, it is short but wide, so it easily holds 12 oz. The fact that it is wide makes it a little hard to put it in the dishwasher, but it is dishwasher and microwave safe.
A great quote coupled with fun characters. What’s not to love about this mug? Now, to figure out what beverage will be as magical as the outside.
