"This is problematic as a mug. It's too small for more than a few adult sips. Is is a perfect size for kids under 5, but being ceramic makes that an issue. So if you want to use it to drink from, it is a good size for espresso. However, this is way too cute to remain in a cabinet! Use it for display, a pencil cup, or a photography prop. Either way, this is good quality and has lots of character! I do wish there was a larger version for my morning coffee as well as other faces available."
