I have a couple of the insulated thermos-like Teddy water bottles, and love them... but this is my first Teddy travel mugs (I got a pair of them). I LOVE it! The mug has a nice "heft" and feels substantial but not heavy in your hand, with a stainless steel inner lining, making it easy to clean, and the insulation is very nice!
Also, the Teddy art -- even though "non-traditional Teddy" -- is totally adorable and i love the vibrant red with subtle snowflake pattern behind him.
I've so far only used mine for cold drinks -- and haven't traveled with it (i work from home) yet..... but I used it without the lid for some pop & ice, and 5-ish hours later the ice was still mostly ice!! that wouldn't happen using a regular cup of any kind. I also love the non-skid, weighted bottom, making it difficult to tip over, which is always a good thing. :)
