The Bottom Line: This is a cute party favor cup that my girls enjoy.
My daughter was a big fan of Mickey when I bought her this cup. Her older sister had been to a party and gotten a matching Spongebob cup as a party favor, so I let my 1 year old pick out a cup that she wanted since we happened to be looking at party supplies at the time.

This cup cost $0.99, and you can find this cup available in a lot of themes - Dora, Spongebob, etc. It is a 16 oz white cup that is imprinted with a design on the outside. I find it with all the themed party supplies and favors.
This is a pretty typical cup, and almost looks like a large paper cup, since it even has a little bit of a lip on it (but is entirely made of plastic). The bottom has the recycle symbol for #5 plastics, so I am glad that we can recycle it when the time comes.
This Mickey cup ended up in our bathtub, and I would say it has been used in the bath for about 6-9 months. Since my kids are 2 and 4.5, I figured the cups would be better off in the tub instead of being used as a drinking cup (16 oz is pretty huge for such little kids). The kids love playing in the bath, and so they use the cup for scooping, filling, etc., and I also use it for rinsing their hair/arms/etc. It has held up surprisingly well, because honestly, I expected the outside design to start peeling, chipping, fading, bubbling, etc - but none of that has happened.
The design is pretty cute. There is an image of Mickey Mouse against what I'd probably say is the Mickey clubhouse "wallpaper" - a red background with things like a question mark, flower, spoke, heart, etc. Then there is an image of Donald Duck on a green outdoor scene. The images go well together, but on the back of the cup, the images come together abruptly, and don't match. It would be nice if the images somehow flowed together, but it isn't the end of the world that they don't. The kids found this cup appealing and that's what matters to me.
Overall, this is a good product at a great price for a party favor or whatnot. This cup has been surprisingly durable and long-lasting in the tub, so I can't complain. My daughter loves Mickey Mouse, and she really likes this cup.
