sailor moon tea 1

Nothing makes teatime feel fancy like an intricately painted tea cup made from china. It hits a magical level when that tea cup is inspired by Sailor Moon. This matching tea cup and saucer set from Premium Bandai and Noritake is made from fine bone china and features a Sailor Scout bow, symbol, and Sailor Moon’s name written in script.

The only uncool thing about this beautiful set that will be out in April is that it’s tricky to order if you live outside of Japan.

Take a closer look at the cup and saucer after the break.

Capture

The cold weather is officially here and there’s no better way to warm up than with a nice mug of hot chocolate. If you’re tired of the same old thing, try one of these variations to make your favorite warm-up drink all new again. There’s everything from pumpkin spice to Nutella to lavender so you’re sure to find one you love.

chewie bottle opener 1

Hallmark wants you to use the Force and/or Wookiee strength to open your bottles. They’ve got two new Star Wars-themed bottle openers that feature Chewbacca and Yoda. While I’m not sure about the designs – the mouths are the openers – I do like that they play music when you use them. Both styles broadcast the Star Wars theme song, and Chewbacca also releases one of his trademark growls.

See the Yoda design after the break.

goldfish teabag 1

Until today I’ve only seen tea bags in two shapes: circles and squares. Charm Villa is making the product kitschy with their goldfish-shaped tea bags. The bags go through a 16 step manufacturing process and when they’re dunked in your mug of hot water, they actually look like swimming fish. The tea bags are beautiful and just a tiny bit weird.

Watch the tea bags swim around in a cuppa after the break.

If you’re a fan of Cyberdyne’s work–I mean, those Terminators are very good at what they do–then you might want to show off your love for the company’s handiwork by picking up this Cyberdyne mug.

Also, if you want to pretend that you work at other fictional corporations and/or branches of local government (like Detroit’s OCP or the Amity Police Department), then you can pick up some of Last Exit To Nowhere’s other logo mugs. Check them out after the break…

dancing groot mug

As someone who is firmly of the opinion that there is no such thing as too much dancing baby Groot, I’m in love with this new figural mug by Entertainment Earth.

Groot’s mini pot is actually a mug. Plus, you can put the top on to keep the coffee warm. Seems like the perfect mug to keep by your side when you’re working.

It’s not in stock until May of next year, but you can pre-order now.

Cartoonist Josh Hara is turning his daily cup of Joe into a work of art by sketching pictures on the back of Starbucks coffee cups. They all come with a punchline, many coffee-based, and are really impressive. He’s even done some that involve more than one cup to create the scene, like a line of evolving cavemen. He told Mashable:

I think that if I was just sharing cartoons on a flat piece of paper, people wouldn’t be enjoying them as much as they have been. I think there is some extra interest in taking something we see every day, something that often gets thrown into the trash, and transforming it into a piece of artwork.

See more examples of his work after the break.

red-robin-milkshake.0.0

Red Robin has announced that they’ve added a new red wine milkshake to their menu.

It’s called the “Divalicious” Red Wine Shake, and it features “Little Black Dress” Divalicious Red Wine, whipped cream-flavored vodka, raspberry puree and vanilla soft serve ice cream. The milkshake also comes with a wine charm that’s in the shape of a little black dress. *Shudder*

Of course, Red Robin’s use of the word “diva” in a product shouldn’t come as surprise. This is the same company that recently released Cronut knockoffs called Doh! Rings.

dew

As you’ve probably heard, Pepsi has created Dewitos Mountain Dew which infuses Mountain Dew with Doritos. Gamers everywhere were undoubtedly very excited for a second or two before they thought about what that really meant.

Stephen Colbert took the whole idea to task and almost but not quite managed to make it through the whole bit before completely losing it. On that note, “It’s like throwing up in your mouth!” is a decent slogan, but we still prefer “Do The Ewwwwww”.

landspeeder

Why would you use a regular bottle opener when you could use this Star Wars Landspeeder Bottle Opener?

Plus, this beauty comes with a collector’s box and has magnets so that you can stick it to your fridge when you’re not using it. Or, y’know, to any other metal object you may have around. Like a droid.
