The LEGO Mug: The Coolest Way to Start Your Mornings

What if you could help the environment with your reusable cup, and use it as a toy?

There are plenty of reasons to invest in a reusable travel mug. To begin with, it cuts down on the amount of paper waste you contribute to the world. But what if you could help the environment with your reusable cup and also use it as a toy? That's exactly what the team at Think Geek had in mind when they conceived of the Build-On Brick coffee cup. Covered in studs and indents, the mug is designed to be played with before and after—or while—getting your caffeine fix.


Compatible with LEGOs, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, or K'NEX Bricks, the possibilities are endless as to what you can construct. To see how far creativity can be stretched, Think Geek encourages the reusable mug's users to send in photos of their daily builds, like this R2-D2 below.



Made with BPA-free plastic, the $20 price tag is a little hefty for a reusable travel mug, but you can argue it's worth every penny for making mornings more fun than they used to be. But be careful; the designers issued this warning about their invention: "May cause distraction at morning meetings."
