“ Brand: Disney / Type: Mug „
Frankenweenie is a 2012 Disney film, written and directed by Tim Burton. We went to see Frankenweenie at the cinema last year and absolutely loved it. It's not your average Disney film but if you love Tim Burton, you're likely to love Frankenweenie. The film is about a dog called Sparky who gets hit by a car and dies (nice!). His grief stricken owner (a boy called Victor) creates an experiment which brings him back to life - cuts, stitches n all! The weird and wonderful story continues from there...
Whilst browsing in The Disney Store about a month ago I came across a Frankenweenie Mug and had to buy it, especially as it was on sale! The Frankenweenie Mug is a Disney Store exclusive and can only be brought from The Disney Store. There is a 'Genuine, Authentic, Original Disney Store' stamp on the bottom of the mug.
The mug has a great design and features many of the main characters from the film (including Sparky, Victor, Weird Girl, Mr Whiskers, Elsa and Edgar). The background picture features dark clouds and lightning. The picture of the characters is in black and white, no colour, this is because the film is also in black and white. 'Frankenweenie' is also stated on one side of the mug, just in case you forget! The main colour of the mug is black (glossy) but the inside is green - the black and green colours go really well together. There's a nice big handle on the side which features grey and black stripes. It's sure to please all Frankenweenie fans.
One of the best things about this mug is the size. It's absolutely huge! It looks like a normal sized mug when you see the photo of it online, but it's surprisingly big 'in person'! I'm sure it may be too big for some people but as far as I'm concerned there's so such thing as too big - I'm a massive tea drinker and can drink litres of the stuff per day! I can hold the cup with one hand by the handle but I often find myself drinking from the mug with both hands around it.
The mug is suitable for microwave and dishwasher use. I find that the mug is really easy to clean, because of the large size I can easily fit my whole hand inside to clean with a sponge/cloth! It seems like very good quality - it's made of a thick stoneware which seems very durable. I've experienced no problems - no chips, cracks etc.
I believe the mug is usually priced at around £5.00, although we picked it up at the bargain price of £2.00! I think that the mug is worth buying at either price. Be quick if you wish to buy this mug though as most of the Frankenweenie range looks like it's being retired at The Disney Store (it was on the website yesterday but it's not today, so you may need to look in store).
