I love these creature cups…it’s like sharing your coffee or tea with a cute little friend!

Yumi, the Brooklyn-based creator of these adorable products, can be found on Etsy (her name is Yumi Yumi). She sells the mugs for 20 dollars a pop…not bad since she makes the cups herself and they have a handmade sea creature inside!

Here are some words from the artist: “I’ve had these little creatures crawling around in my head for years – just trying to get out. I didn’t know where they were trying to go until one day they told me – your coffee! They wanted to drink up your coffee and soak in your tea.”

You can find four different (ceramic) animals inside the mugs:

Here’s a shot of them all together:
