There's always time to learn something new. With online educational systems getting more and extensive and open to everyone with a decent connection there are plenty of opportunities to learn about all sorts of things. But sometimes it's nice to take a break from the computer, and have a nice cup of tea! Learning is possible at those time too.
The production house Mclaggan Smith has put together a terrific line of mugs designed by Picturemaps that have education as their theme. Displaying a wide range of topics, the mugs are beautifully finished and help to put everyone in the picture when it comes to the subject in question.
Take the above The Educational Solar System Mug from Mclaggan Smith Mugs. This fantastically detailed mug is ideal for a brew with an extra helping of insightful information. Including the distances between the planets in our solar system from the sun and how long they take to orbit, along with how big they are, the mugs are a valuable lesson in astronomy.
A history lesson contained in a strongly made mug is at the core of the Women Who Changed The World Mug. Taking the holder through a fascinating journey of history including important female world figures such as Rosa Parks, Marie Cure, Anne Frank and Frida Kahlo, the ceramic mug is durable and finished in high detail. Perfect for anyone with an interest in world history.
A product centred more on younger children shows off another side of how well innovative design brings core lesson objective to the forefront. The above (and title image) Follow and Spot Puzzle, Around Town by Petit Collage is a fantastically well-made puzzle game that tests a child's memory and ability to observe. Illustrated in a bright and colourful style, the game is an ideal way to keep the youngster's brains active and growing!
Taken as part of a helpful idea to make learning fun, and not overly restricted to set times and places, innovative designs and products are a great way to bring education systems right up to date. Have fun, have a break, and learn at the same time.
