Step back and launch your treats from downtown into the Basketball Mug, a handcrafted drinking vessel featuring an integrated basketball hoop complete with backboard. Pour some hot chocolate into the sixteen ounce mug and let it rain mini marshmallows.

The mug is dishwasher safe, meaning once that game of miniature marshmallow H-O-R-S-E is done, it will be ready for the next round after a quick shower. The large mug is also perfect for draining oyster crackers in soup or turning ice cream toppings into treys.

The Basketball Mug was created by a Boston-area boy named Max when he was only 8 years old. Max also happens to be dyslexic, so 5% of his profits go to charities that support dyslexia and other learning disabilities.
