Welcome once again to the movie marketplace that is Watto’s Emporium, which rounds up some of the best merch that we found across the online galaxy this week. And today we boast imaginary friends, bags to rebel with and bearded beanies, as we add more unique, cute and functional merchandise to the aisles of the Emporium. So join us as we take a look through those very aisles, for another week’s round up… 

3. Bing Bong Medium Soft Toy (disneystore.co.uk, £20.95)

This Monday sees the release of Pixar’s back to masterful filmmaking animated picture Inside Out on DVD and Blu-Ray (read our emotional review here). So to celebrate and because that little thing called Christmas is on the horizon, why not pick up this lovely soft toy modelled on the character Bing Bong. A scene stealing character in the film, Bing Bong is the imaginary friend of the main human character, Riley. However there is no need to imagine anymore because thanks to disneystore.co.uk, this colourful, adorable and heartbreaking character can now become a reality, as he keeps your little one- or you (we won’t tell)- company on those long nights.


2. The Hobbit- Beard Beanie (beltsbucklestees.com, £15)

Also hitting DVD shelves this Monday is the final chapter of Peter Jackson’s Middle-Earth adventures (for now anyway), in the extended edition of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (march over here, to read our review). The film features many battles battling and many beards a bobbing but if you clean shaven fans of all things Tolkien are feeling left out, fear not because beltsbucklestees.com just might have the answer. Any franchise can inspire a beanie hat but not every franchise can inspire a beanie hat with a luxurious beard attached! This hat is perfect for those oncoming winter months and keeping your head, cheeks and chin warm through them. Also this hat could be the key in getting you accepted into Thorin’s group…although you might have to crouch a bit and bring your own axe to battles.



1. I Am the Mockingjay 2 Messenger Bag (cafepress.co.uk, £24.50)

Well seeing as the final instalment in the Suzanne Collins novel to big screen YA phenomenon The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, is in cinemas now (stand up to the Capitol by reading our verdict here), why not celebrate in the most useful way possible. When Katniss was running around and being all socially rebellious and inspiring the masses, she could really have done with one of these Messenger Bags from cafepress.co.uk. Decorated with the symbol of the Mockingjay and perfect for storing arrows (or y’know normal stuff), this bag will ensure that the odds don’t need to be ever in your favour to find your gear.


Be sure to keep an eye out every week for our pick of the top 3 funnest, funkiest and freakiest finds in our online merchandising explorations!
