Emma Bridgewater Toyota Mug Review
I ordered James May's mug from the thumbnail image of the DriveTribe video "This is why James May is selling his Ferrari"...
A while back, DriveTribe did a video on why James May is selling his classic Ferrari. This was all well and good, but I noticed something I liked even more (that I could also afford): the mug he was holding in the thumbnail. I'll link the video below in case you'd like to watch it or see what I am referring to.
When I noticed the mug, I saw the word Toyota and was instantly intrigued. As many of you know, I drive a Toyota Corolla and instantly thought that this mug might be a nice compliment to my car. After a bit of searching, I finally found the mug: it is an Emma Bridgewater limited Toyota mug made in honor of twenty years of UK Toyota manufacturing. There was only one issue: I couldn't find one for sale anywhere. After about a month of looking, one finally popped up on ebay so I ordered it, and it finally came in (as we all know, the mail has been quite delayed as of late).
It is truly a beautiful mug. It is handmade, has a nice heft to it, and is a perfect size to brew my coffee in the morning in and my peppermint tea in at night. They are fairly tricky to find, and shipping costs from the UK are quite outrageous for them, however mine was packaged really nicely with loads of styrofoam and loads of bubble wrap, so the cost for proper shipping was worth it. A really nice mug that I am pleased to own!
