Initial Thoughts: The Musical Snowman mug is a brightly coloured hand painted musical mug came in its own little box and as soon as was taken out we wanted to hear the music. When the mug was lifted was greeted to a jolly ‘ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas’ followed by a chorus of Jingle Bells to get us in the mood for festive fun.

We liked:  We had the snowman version and the bright colours on the mug are lovely and also the snowman is slightly raised so gives it a lovely 3D look too. We especially like the handle design with a little bird perched on top of a sweet snow covered little house. The mug really does get you in the mood for christmas and as it plays a festive tune too when lifted is a real novelty item. My daughter especially has asked that she can use it all year round.

We weren’t so keen: The quality of the music on our mug is questionable. It has from day one, sounded a little muffled, almost scratchy, and in our opinion a little too quite for us to get full enjoyment from the tune as we could have done perhaps.  It is a reasonably priced item at £4.99, and the music is a lovely *extra* and would eventually, I presume run out anyway as the devise has been built into the mug, but for me I would have liked it a little clearer and louder.

Overall: This is a mug for christmas, is bright, is cheerful, and very festive, especially with the musical twist. I have two children and would possibly consider one each as there has been a little squabbling about who gets their drink in it. Even though the devise inside, which is encased within the mug safely, takes up a little room at the bottom of the mug, there is still ample space for the desired drink and it is fun to hear the musical tune evertime you raise the mug to have a sip. Lovely christmas novelty item.
