I'm curious about your animated horse mugs.
Do the mugs somehow give the horses the appearance that they are moving (I know
that's probably a dumb question, but I'd really like to know).
Thanks for your inquiry! No,
they don't. Well, yes, they do. Sort of. No, not really. I mean, if you put the
mug on a "lazy susan" and put a strobe light in front of it, and spun it at the
right speed, they would sort of animate, except there's a big gap where the handle
is. Each frame is printed on the mug so it would work sort of like an inside-out
That's a lot of trouble to go through, of course--especially when
you consider that you can download an animated version from our web site (for
free) and see them gallop, trot, pace, canter and jump right on your computer
screen (without running the risk of spilling your coffee!)
Thanks again! I
think I'll post this correspondence (without your name and email address of course,
to protect your privacy.) I've found that when one person asks a question, it
usually means thousands are curious and silent!
