Color: PGMUGS 409
The concept is a brilliant ode to Alice .... pour in hot water, and the cat disappears.

First off, the water has to be, like, piping hot for the cat to fade. But that's not really the flaw.

About a week after purchase, I noticed that the LETTERS were acting funny, too. The "A" in "Alice" was gone! and the lettering in the quote "We'll, I've often seen a cat, ect" was twisted up and around.

At first I though, wow! this is awesome. My Alice mug actually made me pause for a second and question my own sanity, which is what the ideal Alice in Wonderland mug should do, I say. But then I thought to myself, if this goes on much longer, it's not going to be an Alice mug anymore, but rather a blank white, boring mug with 0 value!

So here's my assessment. The mug states that only the CAT is supposed to fade. So the rest of the mug shouldn't be disappearing too. That means it's a bad product. On the other hand, I think this mug would make a cool prank-gift for any Alice fan if you don't tell the person what the mug does! : )

This was bought as a Christmas gift for my daughter. The mug is great; cool artwork and the letters disappear they way are supposed to. Our problem is with washing the mug. As instructed we've always handwashed it. However, after a few uses the lettering started to wipe off, no matter how careful we tried to be. If not for the issue with the lettering this mug would receive 5 stars.

The outside of the mug can come off if cleaned in the dishwasher or with anything abrasive (as the box warns)--so just use soap and water. I assume this is why the other reviewer had a problem. Otherwise it's awesome. The cat "disappears" pretty well, although the ink isn't 100% invisible (it turns into a very faint yellow tinge). Still, good enough to be pretty amusing (to me) and worth the money.

I bought this for my wife. It's a very nice looking mug. Cheshire disappears when filled with hot liquid. But after just one wash some of the paint started flaking off. After the second wash the letters flaked off and more of the art work. My wife followed all directions about not soaking the mug, not using too hot water, etc. Yet the paint still came off. Don't buy if you actually plan to use this mug!

Ok. First, we get this cup in the box without any packing material and it is in 50 pieces. We could not help but think to ourselves, why on earth would someone send a BREAKABLE coffee cup in a box in the mail? And it is not just "someone"... it is people who send breakable things in the mail all of the time. But, we thought... oh, it was probably just a mistake. So, we open the second cup when it arrived... lo and behold, it had bubble wrap. But, it is chipped all over the bottom of it... no chips in the box or in the bubble wrap... so it was sent this way? Ya. And then... we notice that it has water stains at the bottom of the cup... you know, like the water stains that our own cups have in our cupboard... because we have USED them. So, my Husband says we will send it back... but I have been wanting to have this cup... the 7 year old child in my heart has been wanting to see the Cheshire Cat disappear, so... I put hot water in it. You know what? The cat does NOT EVEN disappear... I thought, surely it does. So I boil water and pour it in... the cat stays... clear as day. Wow. Your company is called the "Unemployed Philosophers Guild"... ya, I think I know why. Life is hard people... I am a good person, with a good heart. I get it that World Peace is not coming anytime soon... I get it that life is work, relationships are work, work is work... but a "disappearing Cheshire Cat" mug... that does NOT disappear when you pour your hot tea in it... after it arrives broken... TWICE... I think you have achieved ONE thing... the exact knowledge of how to make an otherwise delightful girl really, really, REALLY dislike you... good luck with THAT.

My daughter has a love hate relationship with this mug. She bought her first version of this mug at a little shop in Northampton, MA. Like many others who have written reviews, she followed all the instructions and took excellent care of her mug and then one day, less than a year after purchasing it, she noticed the letters disappearing. She was heartbroken as growing up, Alice was her favorite literary character. Now that she is getting ready to go off to college, I purchased her a replacement mug only for display so that she can have her first mug to use and one to keep pristine.

I highly recommend that if you have a die-hard Alice fan, you purchase two mugs: one they can actually use for drinking and one that can sit on a shelf and by admired or at least have the second one ready as a backup for when the first one starts to go bad.

I saw this mug and thought, "how cute." After purchasing it and not more than 3 months later the Cheshire Cat and written quote are peeling off. I followed instructions and hand washed it. Also the bottom of the mug says, "for best results to use other side" ?? I guess you shouldn't drink from the bottom of the mug. This cheeply made mug from China was a waste of money. "If you buy it, don't use it as intended" should be what is written on the bottom too.
