When trying to shop for my eldest nephews Christmas present I've found it so hard this year.
I like to get him something he can build as he's such a clever young man. Over past years I've brought him science experiments such as the build a volcano or make your own crystals. This year I wanted something a little different so I opted for this really cool mug.
I like this mug for two different reasons :
1. Because it's heat activated
2. Because it's the solar system
I had to test it to make sure it worked, and I'm actually tempted to go and get another mug for myself.
The packaging itself is sturdy and in the shape of a small shortened rocket.
The mug is chunky but not to heavy. It's black with small white dots on which represents the stars in the sky.
One the boiling waters been added to the mug it takes a minute or two before it activates, the middle area slowly disappears and reveals constellations.
The cup stays warm for a good 10 minutes so if your a slow tea drinker it would be perfect for you.
Personally I think I made the right decision with this present but we shall see Christmas day.
