**Update 03Dec14- well... everything was find and dandy up to today. Yup, the thing cracked from top to bottom after pouring coffee from an automatic drip at a family member's house. There is not putting it in the dishwasher, which I can completely understand, and there's not being able to even deal with basic coffee heat. This would be the first ever mug that cracked going from room temperature (ROOM TEMPERATURE!) to typical coffee-maker hot that I have known in my entire life. :(

---- Original
As now stated in the Product Description:

"3. Wash with hand, not suitable for dishwasher machine." I have to be honest here... this was self-evident to me before I even looked at the product page. Pretty much all little hot/cold changing mugs and cups have the same basic limitations unless it happens to be a thick, triple-layered design where the changing portion is sandwiched between two layers. This is just a coffee mug for a morning smile.

Anyhoo, as seen in my video clip, I used simple hot water, not boiling, from my commercial water cooler (and no, stirring is not needed to make it change- I was just prepping my cup o' ChocoJoe), and the mug started off with a smile, making me smile and chuckle in return... and sometimes that is what we really need first thing in the morning. :)

-- I received this as a complimentary review product with the aim of hopefully elucidating features and drawbacks that may help you ultimately decide what fits your needs and budget best.

As always, despite receiving a free product I'm perfectly candid in my review. I want you to have as good an experience on Amazon as I do.

* The dark cup is pretty much as shown.

* Cup begins to change at 119 degree surface temperature.

* However, even at 125 degrees the cup does NOT look like the white picture. Does finally start to look similar to the picture around 165 which is furiously hot for anything you want to hold in your hand or put in your mouth.

* As stated in just about every review, do NOT put this in the dishwasher or you'll just have a cup.

This was supplied to me by the company for review but it in no way obligates me to write either a positive or negative review. I do avoid hyperbole when I can.
Both of these novelty cups would be especially appreciated by kids I believe or just someone who would be in for a surprise. The cups initially are black with a face showing pursed mouth and eyelids closed. When you pour a hot beverage in them, the cup slowly changes to white, the eyes become open black dots and a smiling mouth appears. Kind of cute I guess.

The only problem with these cups is that they are not machine washable and you can not put them in a microwave. They must be cleaned by hand. I am not sure what makes the cups change as they do, but because they cannot be machine washed, it leads me to believe that after many hand washings, whatever makes the cups change by heat would wear out and nothing would occur. How long that might take to happen, if it happens, is anybodies guess at this point.

I do think that these cups would be great for small secret Santa gifts, stocking stuffers, or just small presents to a friend but that is far as I'd go with them.
I do hope this review has been of some help in deciding upon your purchase.
Thanks for reading.

1/14/15 Update....I have been using these cups steadily since my initial review. The cups still work fine but when hot liquid is poured in and the face changes, it does not get any where near as white as the photo shows. More like a gray. As the cup cools it quickly turns dark again. I have avoided placing the cup in a microwave and, so far, hand washing has not diminished its ability to change. I stay with the thought that these are novelty cups and nothing more.

What a cute and fun concept for avid coffee drinkers, hot chocolate lovers, or just plain ol' hot tea sippers. It arrived exactly as described and well packaged in a white gift box. I had a color changing mug a while ago but I made the mistake of heating my coffee in the microwave, after that experience, the mug never got past a dark grey color. No extreme temperatures of any kind should be used for this mug including dish washers, or excess sun exposure. The microwave oven is usually between 600 to 1200 watts. A dishwasher has extreme temperatures in order to get rid of germs, bacteria etc. The heating element from a coffee maker does not have these kind of vigorous temperatures. I wrote this because another customer said that they was wondering what the difference between certain heating devices are towards the damaging effects of this mug.

As you can see in the images here, the mug quickly changes to white. There was a black ring near the top where the coffee liquid sat but after adding my cream and sugar and stirring a little, the entire mug effortlessly changed to white. As the coffee cools, the coffee mug gradually returns to its original black color. A coffee mug that will surely bring a warm smile to your face. It is a nice size (regular) and holds 12 fluid ounces. The hotter the water, the faster the color changing effect.
These mugs need to be hand washed preferably with a non abrasive soapy sponge as to not scratch or damage the film. If it is taken care of, it will last for many years to come. This is well made and I am happy to recommend this product - Enjoy your wake-up call.

These mugs are so cute! I brought them into the office and all of my coworkers were fascinated and asked for demonstrations. The only thing is, the picture makes it seem like you can't even tell it's the same mug when you add hot water, but you can see outlines of the sleepy face on the open-eyed face when you fill up the mug. They're not extreme, and I still think it's adorable, but the picture is a bit misrepresentative.

This was an excellent product to teach my nephew about. He had great fun helping to make coffee to see it in action and by his awe, I loved the product.
Even though you can see the other "face" its an awesome coffee mug.
Light not too heavy, a little thin for my liking. But overall a great product I will use over and over.

This is one of those items you'd probably never look for unless you needed an unusual gift, or happened to see it on an end-cap in a novelty shop. It's a cute cup, and it does work. The coffee cups are covered in a color changing film. The cups are thinner than usual coffee cups (to transfer the heat) and the film requires come care. The cups need to be hand washed, are not dishwasher safe and take some care not to scratch or damage the film.

As you can see in the photo, the film changes from black to clear, revealing the image beneath it. The white image on the film is still visible, white on beige.

The hotter the water, the faster the color change. Putting in coffee from a freshly brewed pot changed the color in about 5 seconds. I received two of these to try out - my GF snagged one right away - she it's "really cute."

I bought this mug and it arrived with a chip in the film that creates the change in face. So I returned it (not worth having to pay the return shipping in my opinion, kind of a rip off). Also, the faces are both visible at all times. It does not look like the picture, the faces are kind of blurred together. Waste of money.

A regular cup of coffee or tea will make it gray and discolored. It doesn't look good. I put coffee in right when the coffee was done brewing and it still wasn't hot enough to change the color all the way.
Very disappointing.
