Getting This Mug is a Bare Necessity
When I first learned of the Disney Wisdom collection back in January, there was one month I knew I needed to get even if I skipped the rest. That was the March release. It combined my favorite quote of the series with my favorite color, so it was a no brainer. And the mug that goes with it is fantastic.
The quote for the month is “Forget about your worries and your strife” which Baloo sings during the song “The Bare Necessities.” I’ve always loved that song from The Jungle Book, so I was drawn to this quote more than many of the others in the series. The mug itself is a deep green, which is my favorite color. Combined, the two are a fantastic match.
As with the other mugs, this one has the quote on one side. The quote is surrounded by squiggles and lines, mixed into which are some leaves, capturing the feel of the jungle. On the other side, we get this month’s characters, Baloo and Bagheera. Baloo is sitting and looking at us while Bagheera is walking and almost looks like he is looking over his shoulder. The characters are black and green and not their true colors. It looks better here than it does on the pin, where Bagheera just looks weird.
The mug itself is short and wide. It may not look like it, but it will hold 14 oz. It is also dishwasher and microwave safe.
Between the quote and the color, this is the mug from the Disney Wisdom set I will be using the most. And I’ll probably have the song stuck in my head every time I pick it up, which is not a bad thing at all.
