UNO Rick and Morty
It’s never been established where exactly Rick Sanchez hails from, but given his surname, it seems reasonable to assume there’s an espanol element there. Which is why it’s somewhat fitting that the card game UNO, Spanish for “one” would tie-in to the franchise. OK, that was a tenuous link and “uno” is also Italian. But playing this game with your family will turn each and every one of you into an angry facsimile of Morty Smith’s Grandfather! The game has a full five star average out of over 1400 reviews, so clearly there’s much fun to be had. Just, play nice!
You’re probably wondering why the red(ish) cup? Well, it’s NOT so bad guys can’t see us bleed. It’s to keep our coffee hot on cool winter mornings; or our drinks cold on summer days. And for that, you don’t get much better than the ol’ fashioned stainless steel tumbler cup. That is, of course, unless you have one that is endorsed by everyone’s favorite Merc with the mouth, Deadpool. Breaking the fourth wall in comics, movies and now drink receptacles, this Wade Wilson’s mug-adorning mug comes in a variety of sizes and types, with reviewers giving top marks.
Thor Stormbreaker Axe
When you think of Thor, it’s hard to imagine him without his trusty hammer Mjolinir. Whilst it is not the source of his power, it is his trademark weapon that only the worthiest can lift. So it was a shock to see his sister Hela shatter it to smithereens in “Thor: Ragnarok”. Luckily, it wasn’t long until Thor got a new toy. With a blade made by Dwarves and the handle formed by Groot, Stormbreaker made an impressive debut in the fields of Wakanda, before withstanding the power of all five infinity stones AND separating Thanos’ head from his shoulders. We’re not saying this replica can do the same things, but it still looks as cool.
SpongeBob SquarePants Deck
Created in 2016, the “What Do You Meme” series follows in the spirit of other card games that buck traditional play-styles in favour of creativity and humor. It’s a game that’s intended for mature audiences, so it might seem odd that they partnered up with Nickelodeon for a SpongeBob themed deck. But it also kind of makes sense, since so many of us grew up with SpongeBob and are now old enough to enjoy “edgier” games. The SpongeBob deck is an addition to the core game that makes for a fun nostalgia trip. With an average score of 4.5 stars, after over three and a half thousand reviews, it’s a game that’s apparently won over many a fan!
“My Hero Academia” Gift Sets
If you aren’t yet familiar with “My Hero Academia” then don’t worry, because we’re pretty sure you soon will be. It’s a relatively recent addition to the Japanese anime and manga world, debuting in the mid 2010s, but gaining instant acclaim. Set in a world where superpowers, known as “Quirks”, are common, the story follows a boy born without powers, who nonetheless aspires to become a superhero. While you can’t purchase a Quirk for yourself or a loved one, there are some pretty sweet gift sets that give plenty of bang for your buck. From useful face masks, to fun keychains, these gift sets have it all, wrapped up in a very tidy and reusable bag.
Top 100 Anime Scratch Off Poster
Another entry devoted to the otaku fanbase, the Top 100 Scratch-Off posters have expanded to include “100 anime”. The premise is very simple (and addictive), you simply scratch off a panel to reveal a picture or writing underneath. Dedicated anime fans are likely to recognise all one hundred panels, but there may still be a few surprises in store for the more casual viewer. As a result, this poster will point you in the direction of some hidden gems and stories you may never have considered watching before you scratched off the panel that covered it.
Marvel Iron Man Throw Blanket with Sleeves
Tony Stark’s suits are designed more for function than form, so we’re not sure how comfortable they actually feel on the inside. Wouldn’t it get a bit brisk flying so high in the sky? Ah who are we kidding, he probably installed heating and AC in there like it was nothing. Well, either way, if you want to wear Stark’s duds while also feeling comfortable and warm, check out The Northwest Company’s Iron Man throw blanket. They’re certainly lighter than the Stark tech, but just as vibrant in colours. The best part? They have sleeves, so you can be comfortable, but also ready for anything!
Minecraft Potion Bottle Light
Even after all of these years, “Minecraft” remains hugely popular, with a passionate and dedicated fanbase. There’s a reason it’s the best-selling game of all time! It holds that title in part thanks to the fact that it appeals to all ages, young and old – and it’s not uncommon for generations to bond over the franchise. With that in mind, this bottle light makes a good gift for kids who want a handy nightlight. But it’s also a cool ornament to have on a desk for late nights at the office.
We all have memories of grabbing a stick or broom handle and pretending to be a Jedi Knight facing off against a Dark Lord of the Sith. Heck, for some of us, those memories are from last week. Back when the first Star Wars toys came out, lightsaber replicas were fragile and didn’t really capture the magic. But these days, you can get one that does it all. These sabers light up in whatever colour you want, meaning you can choose red if you’re feeling villainous, blue if you’re heroic, or purple if you’re Samuel L. Jackson. Plus, it makes the “vooom” sounds–though if you want to keep doing that yourself then we won’t tell anyone.
Replica Infinity Gauntlet
You’ve got to hand it to Tony Stark; his choice of wearable tech fits like a glove. While Thanos wore it well, something about Iron Man’s hot rod red version just clicks with us. Hasbro’s replica Power Gauntlet looks great, with a faithful design and intricate details. On top of that, it also has sound effects from “Endgame”, and the Infinity Stones light up! If you ever want to take it off, which we guess you will have to at times, it can be posed into a fist for display. Just make sure you’re ready for the consequences before you snap your fingers.
