Collecting The Simpsons merchandise is easy because there's so much to choose from. But how do you decide what you want to shop for if you're a fan of The Simpsons? Here's a list of great games, toys and gifts for Simpsons fans.
Playmates released a slew of wonderful action figures from The Simpsons
. When these figures are placed on Simpsons
playsets, they even say quotes! Now even more companies have won licensing and are selling bobbleheads, bendables and more.
Fox Home Entertainment
Whether you buy complete seasons of The Simpsons, or a themed DVD such as "Treehouse of Horror," any fan would be happy to receive a Simpsons DVD as a gift. The extras included in the boxed sets, such as commentaries by Matt Groening, animatics and featurettes, make these gifts even more fun.
Many classic board games are available in The Simpsons theme. You can also buy something electronic, such as a video game or a handheld game.
Spread the fun with t-shirts of Homer Simpson wearing headphones or anything proudly displaying Duff Beer.
Novices and experts on The Simpsons
will enjoy these books. The guides are packed with trivia and quotes. The more serious works, including The Gospel According to The Simpsons
, raise The Simpsons
to a higher form of learning.
The Simpsons has produced many memorable songs, such as "The Stonecutter Song" and "Mr. Plow." The songs are, at times, touching as well as funny. The songs on The Simpsons are usually composed by Alf Clausen. Relive funny times in the car listening to a "yellow" CD.
Posters and prints are great gifts for college students, kids and anyone who wants their walls to look hip and funny. I highly recommend the full cast poster from The Simpsons, which includes every character in Springfield. Fans can have fun picking out obscure characters from the crowd. (Where's Grimey?)
Calendars are great gifts for holidays or birthdays that fall late in the year. You can choose from small desk calendars to large ones that hang on the wall. I recommend buying calendars with quotes and trivia.
