Dream Merch?

Post by Sky Alton » Sat Mar 31, 2018 6:40 pm

I finally (finally!) got myself to the shop at Platform 9 ¾ last week. It was very hard not to spend all the money in the world in there, I wanted nearly everything so badly.

But with all the merchandise they had, there were still things that I wanted that haven’t been made yet. A proper, custard coloured puffskein plush springs to mind.

But how about you guys, if you could convince the powers that be to create any piece of merch, what would it be?

I would love to see something that is also mentioned in the books. A toy snitch or a toy broomstick that can fly around the room!

There is something similar already available, a toy snitch with the illusion of flight, but it still needs some type of help. I am speaking more about a remote controlled toy that you could spin around the room or outside. I know of at least one child and one feisty cat that would just love to play with it. It is also a pretty fun way to play or tire them out.

If the merch already exists, please point me towards it so I can buy. >_>

I would love to have a Pygmy Puff. In the 6th book, it felt like a less scary Furby that could move on it's own. Also I would love to have a miniature Hungarian Horntail or Krum that could move on it's own (from Goblet of Fire), and fit on the palm of my hand. If any of these merch existed as a plushy, that would be awesome as well.

I'm not actually too sure if these are already on the market but I have always LOVED the idea of having Herbology themed merch. Maybe its just the Herbology / Plant nerd in me coming out but I feel like there would be SO much potential for it as well as potentially being super good for the environment!

An example could be seeds or fertilisers packaged and branded as strictly magical brands, edible gillyweed candy like the chocolate frogs and bertie botts bean and of course mandrake plushies would go down a treat too! I actually once made a plant pot out of clay and shaped it like a mandrake which (albeit not perfectly executed by myself) would be so cute for anyone with an indoor (and outdoor) gardening hobby! :)

My sister got me a golden snitch, deathly hallow, and time turner necklace plus a golden snitch bracelet for Christmas (she likes to get everything early :P) so those are my favorite pieces of merch I have *cough* will have soon :lol:

Definitely what Maxim said - a toy broomstick and golden snitch that can fly around the room. Remote-controlled seems the most logical way to do it and there are already so many flying remote-controlled items for sale that it shouldn't be that difficult.

The one thing I'd like to see more is a Ravenclaw shirt with an eagle on it because most of the ones you see have a Raven instead which drives me crazy. They do sell them but they're hard to come by. I'd also like to see a golden snitch mug with the wings of the snitch as the handle. :o

My wishes are a lot more simple, or maybe i'm just not that imaginative. I would like a black Hufflepuff shirt with three-quarter sleeves. Not too fitted. Hot Topic has a really cool Hufflepuff shirt design, but unfortunately, it's a t-shirt and I like to keep my arms covered when possible. I could wear a shell underneath, but I hate layering shirts like that.

Oh, the joys of being (something) of a fashionista...
