octopus sea otter creature fancy cup
Creature Cups are a fun addition to have at your coffee table. Offer your friends coffee in one of these cups and they will be presented with a surprise as they begin to finish their drink — an unexpected creature lurks at the bottom of  each cup. The bottom dwellers include a googly-eyed octopus with outstretched tentacles, a menacing crocodile, a lobster with large, snap-happy claws and a sea otter holding a fish. Each of these creatures adds a playful, decorative element to an otherwise regular coffee cup. You probably should give a little warning before handing someone freshly brewed beverage in these cups or they might end up in a startled, hot mess!
