If you love coffee and you like playing with Lego, check out the Build-On Brick Mug by Think Geek. They’ve cleverly designed a functional and fun coffee mug you can play with and drink from.
The Build-On Brick Mug is made from small black raised studs and holes so you can attach your own Lego bricks to the outside of the mug and create anything you like.
Make your cup into a car and wheel it across the desk, add on extra handles – just because, or even attach a plate for your biscuit. It’s the perfect functional office toy you can actually get away with. Bring it to your Monday morning work meetings to liven things up – either that or get some confused looks, depending on who you work with.
And if you’re really tech savvy you could make your coffee into a robotic mug. I’m not sure what function this could serve, but it could be worth trying if you fancy being a bit more creative and you’ve got a lot of time on your hands.
So, back to the practicalities. The Build-On Brick Mug can also be used with PixelBlocks, Mega Blocks, KRE-O and K’NEX Bricks. It’s also hardy enough for hot drinks and it’s made from BPA-free plastic; however, it’s not suitable for the dishwasher or the microwave.
If you like the sound of it, you can buy your own Build-On Brick Mug online from thinkgeek.com for US$19.99; however, this includes just the mug – it’s up to you to supply the bricks. Other Think Brick accessories include Star Trek Pizza Cutters, Doctor Who coasters and a Rubik’s Cube Mug.
