Turtlemania Update: Tons of New TMNT Merchandise Demands Your Money
If only that Leonardo chair was adult-sized.
Being a hardcore TMNT fan that’s all growed up now means that the new wave of Turtlemania that’s sweeping the nation is super exciting, and potentially super expensive. It’s hard to pass up TMNT products now that they’re popular again, but it’s already gotten too big for me to keep up with. I’ll stick with the toys and a few other bits of merchandise that catches my eye, but there’s no way I could get everything.
Regardless, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the newest TMNT merch that’s available at various stores just in case you want to
waste spend some of your hard-earned cash.
These character chairs are $70 at Toys r Us, which seems crazy-expensive. I haven’t seen them in person yet, but if I had a kid that would be all the excuse I’d need to have one of these in my house. Hell, if my dog would fit on one that would probably be enough of a reason for me. Look at it, it’s super cute! [Toys R Us]
I don’t know how this is an iPod speaker but it’s super cute and Donatello (or Purple according to TRU’s website), which is alright with me. It’s hard to tell how big it is by the photo on their website, but I’m sure it’s on the small side. It’s interesting how many new TMNT products are iPod/Tablet accessories. [Toys R Us]
This one is actually really cool. I found two metal TMNT lunchboxes on Amazon, and they’re both pretty cool. They’re not available as a Prime product so it’s hard telling where it’s coming from, but I might order one and find out how legit they are. [Amazon]
You know someone at some licensing company just looked at the new design of the Turtles and thought, “Their heads kind of look like – WAIT A SECOND!” [Toys R Us]
I actually need a stylus for my iPad Mini, and as much as I’d like to have a TMNT stylus, something tells me this would not be a very good one. However, it comes with a cute little shell keychain or something, so I’m still on the fence about this one. [Toys R Us]
These $9 kites are on Amazon and are simple, but pretty awesome looking. I love how the Nickelodeon Turtles look translated to 2D, whether it’s on these kites or coloring books. You can pick up Raphael, Donatello, Mikey, and Leonardo.
Honorable Mention: Somewhere out there is an unofficial TMNT piggy bank, but I haven’t been able to track it down yet. I saw one given as a white elephant gift this Christmas and it was pretty awesome. It is an actual pig bank, but the pig is dressed up like a Ninja Turtle. If anyone has any leads on where this came from, sound off in the comments. I suspect it came from Target around Halloween-time, but I’m not sure.
