Nice graphic design but small mug
December 5, 2012
Love the design on the mug. The deer is detailed but the "foliage" is kind of cartoon-y--a nice combo. However, I was disappointed with the size of the mug. I have petite hands and my pointer finger and middle finger just barely fit in the handle. When held this way, these two fingers touch the side of the hot mug, which is uncomfortable. I thought of returning the mugs but I like the design enough to deal with inconvenient size. The mugs would be ideal if their only purpose was to serve hot cocoa to kids.
ProsThe graphic design
ConsSmall size; handle does not work well for adult hands. I assume all Marimekko mugs are the same size.
