Adorable, but not super durable
February 28, 2012
These are gorgeous, and fun. And my toddler stand at the counter screaming STINKY or LITTLE MY constantly. They love these characters! Unfortunately, we have a tile floor in the kitchen and 2 of our 3 mugs have been rendered unusable by chips. I knew they would chip on the outside, that's inevitble with kids. But what I didn't realize was that on a hard floor anyway, the impact would cause the chip to go straight through the cup and the cup will RUST inside once the enamel is cracked or chipped. I got these because they are one of the only solutions that is plastic free and cute, which would have made them worth the price. Unfortunately within two weeks I now have 2 very expensive pencil holders.
Merchant Response:The body of this mug is carbon steel and there's enamel coating on the top. Enamel is made partly of glass and that is why the breakage is possible if the floor is made of a hard material. This happens seldomly, but is possible with a little bad luck. If the enamel coating is broken we recommend not to use the mug.
- rust when chipped, not durable enough for tile floor
