Pros: Great quote; great looking mug
Cons: None related to the mug itself
The Bottom Line:
A great wisdom quote
Captured on a stunning mug
Glad I got this one
Good Reminder on a Fun Mug
While I will never love the movie Pocahontas, I definitely appreciate Disney using a quote from it as part of their Disney Wisdom Collection. This beautiful mug is a great addition to my collection.
The color of the month is a pretty blue green color. The result is absolutely beautiful. On one side of the mug, we have Meeko the raccoon, this month’s mascot, and Flit the hummingbird. They are in various shades of blue, which isn’t their natural color, but I’ve gotten used to these stylized characters, and I like how they look. They don’t have as much doodle around them, but what they do have looks like leaves and branches.
On the other side is the quote of the month from Grandmother Willow. “Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one.” There is a lot of truth in this quote since it seems like the right path is rarely the easiest one. And the quote looks amazing. They use pink and orange extensively, which really makes it pop out. I think they outdid themselves with the presentation here. Again, the quote is surrounded by leave doodles.
Of course, looks aren’t important if this isn’t a good mug. Fortunately, that’s not a problem at all. The mug is wide and short, but it still easily holds 14 oz. It is designed so that you can stack it with others from the set to take up a little less room in your cupboard, which is nice since I really don’t need any more mugs. And, like most mugs today, it is dishwasher and microwave safe.
I have very little Pocahontas merchandise, and I don’t see that changing. I’m happy to make this mug as one of those rare exceptions.
