Adorable Mugs Feature Animals and Their Tails


If one of the first things you do in the morning is enjoy a nice hot cup of tea, why not use a mug that instantly puts a smile on your face? Korin has created a sweet set of porcelain mugs that each feature a different animal. While the body of the animal is on the mug itself, the animal’s tail juts out to make an adorable handle or decoration. They’re appropriately called Mugtails.

While the cups would make great novelty gifts, especially for the animal lover, heed these warnings. Amazon customers have written that “it is way too small to be used as a coffee cup” and “because the exterior is not glazed, this mug is more suited to sipping water, milk or herbal tea instead of stain-prone drinks like coffee.” (Of course, you can always use it as a decoration and drop in a tea light, instead.)
