One of the spookiest Halloween characters of all, the Vampire Bat!
Each Johnna Parker mug from the Pumpkin Peeps collection starts off with a pumpkin body and is finished with details steeped in timeless, folk art style.
What We Love About Them: The wings are the best part of this mug in our opinion. Why? Look how expressive they are! It's as if our little bat is about to bow, or say "may I offer you another sip of your coffee?" We also love the hand-painted aging around the little pumpkin body.
