Today, I have something a little different for my next review, the ThinkGeek Building Brick Mug. It is not an official LEGO product but can work with the bricks. I got it a few months ago when it was on sale on ThinkGeek’s website. The retail price is $19.99 for the 12 oz mug.
The ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug is dark grey can made from hard ABS plastic and is BPA-free. There are many holes and sockets for various building blocks including LEGO, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, K’NEX, and PixelBlocks. From my tests, LEGO bricks fit on all four sides of the mug although some bricks are a little loose especially if you put 2×2 bricks or larger on the single row studs in front of the mug. The front is even strong enough to hold a whole building. As far as actually drinking out of it, after all it is a mug, any liquid will work. If you drink something like coffee, be sure to wash it right after or else it will stain the mug. It is also recommended that you do not microwave the mug or else you will have a gooey mess. Overall, the ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug is a pretty nice accessory to add for your home or office.
