Best Mermaid Cups

    Submitted by Martin on Tue, 04/10/2018 - 14:23

    Mermaid cups!? They exist and we're going crazy for them. We love a good mug, the amount of tea and coffee we drink is border line crazy, especially because it's so hard to boil the water under the sea, but it aint stopping us enjoying a cuppa.

    Below we look at some mermaid cups that we think you'd like to use when having your cup of tea or coffee in the morning. There is something nice about a simple routine, enjoying your favourite tea blend or coffee ritual and using an awesome mug to put it all in to. We only really need one or two cups and we can re-use the same one through the day, so it's best to make it a good one!

    All the mugs below are fine to use with hot drinks and heat resistant, we hope you like them as much as we do. When looking through all the options, these were just a few of our faves, there are hundreds more mermaid design mugs that we think you'll like just as much.

    We think these would also be the best birthday and christmas presents in the world for a budding mermaid or merman.

     

     

    Comparison

    We loved each mermaid cup equally, each has it's own unique design, were all of a similar size. The only thing that could differentiate them from one another is the design and colours used to make them.

    Depending on what colour kitchen and theme you have, you could choose a cup based on the colour scheme to best fit.

    Ariel, The Little Mermaid Mug made by Disney is just as the pictures show. Vibrant, colourful and 3D in its appearance. It is a strong solid mug, if anything I would say designed more so for teenagers and adults due to its size. At 285ml it can hold a decent amount of your favourite tipple. It is a tall slender mug with a wide outer rim for sipping and with the added ability to balance a biscuit on!

    The handle resembles Ariel's long red flowing hair which is comfortable to hold. The fish scale design of the mug itself is very detailed as well as the pearls and from a distance looks 3D when up close it is not.

    Inside the mug is a Ariel signature beautifully written. It is a little pricey but sometimes it is worth paying more for a quality gift. Overall this is a gorgeous mug its only downfall is its aftercare. Due to iits intricate shape it can only be hand washed and not put in the dishwasher. The mug also cannot be used in the microwave.

    This is a wonderful mug for a friend who is either obsessed with Disney and loves "The Little Mermaid" or as a gift to a mermaid in the family.

    Pros
    • Fantastic design
    • 3D effect
    • Good solid mug
    • Interior signature
    • Holds a decent amount of tea at 285ml
    • Next day delivery with Amazon Prime
    • Perfect gift for a mermaid
    Cons
    • Not suitable for dishwasher or microwave
    • A little pricey
    Verdict

    Providing a good amount of tea from and a pleasurable sipping mug this beautifully designed and crafted mug ozzes everything Ariel which is perfect for the Disney Princess in your life.

    The Oval Ariel The Little Mermaid Mug is larger than life, able to holds 511ml which equates to the same as two cups of tea. This is a great mug for work. It is dishwasher and microwave safe making it safe to leave in your work place and its ability to hold two cups of tea means a happy amount of sipping while doing your work without the need to get up and make another too soon.

    This mug is not particularly pricey but you may find due to its over half a kg in weight size that you will be paying a bit for postage.

    With those mug you'll have definitely claimed the biggest Little Mermaid fan of the office position and potentially Disney fan. The whole mug is smooth and oval in size. Blue on the outside and yellow on the inside, the print of Ariel is good quality and the mug is a strong and study build.

    Pros
    • Great for a Little Mermaid fan
    • Dishwasher and Microwave safe
    • Provides nearly two cups on tea in one mug
    Cons
    • Not next day delivery
    • Will need to pay a bit for delivery due to weight
    Verdict

    This oval 'The Little Mermaid" mug is perfect for your busy mermaid or in the office keeping you permanently topped up on your fuel. Its lovely design is perfect for a Disney princess but be aware delivery my be a little more due to its heavy, study shape.

    The Pusheen Mermaid Mug is a small simple shaped mug with slender handle however holds a special ability to colour change when reacted with heat. 

    pusheen mermaid colour changing

    Over here at themermaidhome.com we do love Pusheen. Pusheen started out in a comic strip that went global via social media. The tabby cat cross mermaid design is a fun and funky creation. Once hot water has been added to your mug the design will slowly change being in the sea to a scene of Pusheen the cat mermaid lying on the beach with colourful shells. At first I didn't realise Pusheen was actually mean't to be in the sea as the mug is a quite a dark blue almost purple but it makes sense when the transformation to the beach occurs.

    This CafePress mug is all about the design. These mugs generally come standard and then a unique design is printed on top, this one being my Molly Harrison of five beautiful mermaids and it is a wonderful design. It is great for someone who love mermaids but not a Disney fan.

    What I especially love about the design is that each of the five mermaids are their own art work and you can easy just sit and look at the mug, dreaming of the mermaid life or even just a more mythical existence.

    CafePress allow you to buy this mug either with a white background or with a white background but black handle and inside, my personal preference was with the extra black handle and inside as I felt it really added an element to the design that especially fit with the middle mermaid's style.

    The solely white mugs are dishwasher friendly, which I have read that I may have gone for the white out of convenience. The mug itself holds 313ml of liquid which is on the higher side of your average cup of tea!

     

    Pros
    • Beautiful unique artwork
    • For the love of mermaids
    • Simple classic style mug
    • Decent size volume of liquid at 313ml
    Cons
    • Only the white mug option is dishwasher safe
    • Not available next day delivery
    Verdict

    This is a stunning piece of artwork on a simple yet classic mug design that would suit any mythical loving friend or family member.

    This mug says exactly what is is on the mug. "Instant Mermaid, Just Add Water" a perfect little slogan for your modern day mermaids ready to relax with a hot beverage.

    Instant Mermaid Just Add Water Mug

    The mug itself is a simple classic mug with the added benefit of being dishwasher and microwave safe. The writing of the design is written in true mermaid colours of pink and blue and the word mermaid even has its own sparkle about it.

    I genuinely feel this is a simple yet effective mug for a mermaid that is also cheap and cheerful, would make a good secret santa gift or stocking filler! It comes in a snazzy mermaid scale box for extra gift effect.
