There’s a cup with a monocle in this week’s roundup of new iPad cases, alongside a few cats and some amazing plastic bubbles. And did we mention the monocle-wearing cup?

The Cute Mustache (iPad Air; $6) features a monocle-wearing cup with plenty of facial hair, a few cats, and a definitely cute polkadot pattern. (We're told that it’s also an iPad case, but, really, the cats and monocle are all we need.)
