Whimsical Hidden Animal Teacups

We’ve all heard the classic story of finding a fly in your soup but finding a bear in your coffee is a whole different story. These playful Hidden Animal teacups offer a delightful surprise as you sip away on your hot or cold beverage. Product designer Ange-line Tetrault created the white ceramic fox, owl, and bear teacups to be "playful as well as thoughtful reflections of her life and surroundings."
