Help finding a kids mug to redeem myself
November 12, 2009 6:25 AM   Subscribe

Please help me make my 4 year old happy again. I broke his favorite mug and cannot for the life of me remember where we bought it and my Google skills are failing me for buying a replacement. It is a small blue mug with an elephant on it, it was part of a set - each was a different color and animal (remaining 3 pictured here). The the only helpful hint is on the bottom where it says made in Japan and the company is IO (pictured terribly here). I am can only imagine that we bought them as a set online but IO and elephant kids mug are not working as search terms so I am hoping against hope that someone recognizes them and knows where to buy another. Thanks.

Nothing substantive to add to mochapickle's answer, except to say that this is why I love AskMeFi. Awesome.

AskMefi is why I kicked in the $5. Awesome work.

I have four of the orange bunny mugs from that set! Your son has good taste.

So cute! Can I ask if they're ceramic or plastic?

barnone, they're ceramic, and sarcasticah, they actually are not too small for adults--I bought them for Mr. HotToddy and myself (no kids) and I think they're just right for a cup of tea or coffee. Maybe 6 oz.?
