Okay, so they’re not THAT strange but they are as cool and perfectly crafted as the latest Netflix show you can’t avoid. And why would you want to? Did we mention Stranger Things is perfect?
Of course, Etsy is stacked with products inspired by the show in some of the most imaginative ways. Here are a handful of bone crushingly good goodies definitely* endorsed by Eleven & Co.
* we reckon, anyway.

After years retreating back to the hardcore fans after its late 90s Game Boy heyday, summer 2016 belongs to Pokémon. Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm (it is the largest mobile game EVER in the US within weeks), and both both Nintendo and the Pokémon company look set to have a bumper 2016 due to the huge global success of the AR game (that hasn’t launched in the UK officially yet).
We’re big Pokémon fans here at Merch Mouth, and there’s little doubt that Pokémon have been masters of merchandising since day one. Starting out life as an RPG, Pokémon soon took over the world with trading cards, a TV show and movies, and anything you could think to merchandise has probably been done (twice). It seems only appropriate that the resurgence of pins has led to what can only be described as “the motherload” of awesome Pokémon pins being made up. Be prepared to drain your wallets on our top 5 from the official store (if you live in the US, that is).

Ultimate genre-hopper Ed Harcourt is back with a searing seventh studio album entitled “Furnaces” and he’s turned to legendary illustrator & cartoonist Ralph Steadman to be bring this ambitious album to life in the most visual way.
Available on 12″ vinyl and CD, the 12 track record has a beautiful bundle option thanks to Steadman’s inimitable artwork. The full, expanded artwork has been made into a strictly limited edition A3 lithograph printed on 250 gsm Heaven 42 Colorplan stock (aka the paper person’s paper people), with each edition hand numbered out of 500. It’s a true collectors item in the making and exclusive to Ed’s online store.
Produced by legendary producer Flood ( Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey and Foals), Furnaces is set for release on 19 August 2016 through Polydor.
Not so long ago Drop Dead dropped a Sega Megadrives classics collection, received with delight by nineties-ophiles everywhere. The Steel City apparel makers came back for round two this weekend with a special edition range of Sonic The Hedgehog gear.
Bomber jackets, collared dresses and pleather backpacks sure feels like DD are upping the ante from previous collaborations in an attempt to push their fashion credibility. Honestly, it seems like it’s working thanks to the Japanese inspired lettering, all-over prints and very kawaii twists on Tails.
We went shopping and wish listed the following…

Heads Above The Waves are fighting the good fight to help young people deal with their daily struggles, funding their work through their well-designed and well-stocked store. Having just launched their new range, the Welsh NPO has also teamed up with The Gospel Youth on a brand new tote bag.
The tote coincides with the premiere of their single ‘Wildfire’ featuring lyrics from the new tune. Taken from the HATW interview with Sam, they’ve added this note explaining the meaning behind the motif:
“Wildfire’ is about the constant battles that we all have inside of ourselves. How we can literally be one step away from packing it all in but we know that we are ‘meant for something more’. I wrote it because I’ve had my fair share of the moments and it’s terrifying but I also know that we, as people, have the ability to be strong and to make something of ourselves, even if we don’t realise it. Every action and every breath we take is important, it may not seem or feel like it sometimes, but it is. We all just need to remember that from time to time.”
Bag this tote and more by shopping with HATW safe in the knowledge you’re contributing to the future.

Godfathers of Pop Punk, New Found Glory have a special place in many of our hearts harking back to times pre-dating social media which the band have decided to immortalise in a coffee table book entitled “Stories Of A Different Kind”.
The book will recall the history of NFG over 128 pages through a series of flyers, poster art and short stories.
This could be our biggest accomplishment as a band to date and we are very excited to share it with everyone. You’re just as big of the reason why it exists as we are.
