If you’ve got synth-pop echoing around your ears and a serious craving for Eggos, you might have been been infected by the Stranger Things bug. Considering the wait for Stranger Things season 2 to hit our screens seems longer than ever, you should keep an eye out for withdrawal symptoms which include scavenging the racks of Goodwill or charity shops to get that perfect '80s aesthetic and wrestling with paintbrushes to daub an Eggo on a t-shirt. Don’t fret though, as here’s an antidote for you: now you can wear your love for the show on your sleeve with these tempting tops, figurines and badges.
Stranger Things Funko Pop Figurines
Create your very own Stranger Things squad with this delightful range of giant-headed figurines from Funko Pop. Each one has its very own prop, from Dustin’s compass to Joyce’s fairy lights, and their empty, black eyes will make you coo over them with no trouble at all. You can get all of the main characters from the series, so regardless of whether you have a soft spot for the toothy Demogorgon or the internet’s dream girl Barb, you’re sure to find a character to delight the most fickle of hearts.
Stranger Things season 1 Soundtrack
Halfway between the sound of an alien spaceship and the thumping of a heart, the music on the soundtrack is sure to bring back memories of the first time you watched the show. It's almost a crime that the dialogue distracted from these haunting tunes, so have a listen to hear them in their full glory.
Hawkins high school t-shirt
Combining nostalgia and a love for the school where the dream team of Will, Mike, Lucas, and Dustin met is a win. The tiger matches the brightly coloured mural Nancy and Jonathan are seen sitting by, plus this tee is subtle enough to fool people that you're just super proud of having attended Hawkins high school.
Mornings are for coffee and contemplation mug
It’s a thought we’ve all had, especially when someone tries to engage you in a chirpy conversation before you’ve been dosed up on caffeine. Channel your inner Hopper (but try not to be as blunt as the chief) and sip out of this mug, flashing it to anyone who tries to chat just to let them know your views on mornings.
Dustin's Waupaca, WIS t-shirt
Retro with just a hint of nostalgia: Dustin's t-shirt is a perfectly sly reference that only the biggest Stranger Things fans will get. You'll just look like an especially fervent fan of Waupaca, Wisconsin to everyone else. Which is good too.
Upside Down poster
Get those shivers racing down your spine with this stylized depiction of the nightmarish world of the Upside Down. Big enough to hang on your wall and stare lovingly at while you wait for Halloween to roll around, its bold colours take a little bit of the edge off when you're thinking about the horrific demogorgon. But only a little bit.
"She's our friend and she's crazy!" woven patch
Show your love for Dustin's rather blunt way of putting things with this iron-on patch, perfect for attaching to bags, jackets, or anything else you have in mind. At 6cm x 6cm wide, it's small enough to fit on the smallest of pink dresses - perfect for anyone who wants to cosplay as a self-aware Eleven.
Barb Enamel Pin
Make sure everyone's award of your love for the red-haired book lover Barb. Unfortunately a #JusticeForBarb placard doesn't come with the pin, but we're sure that no-one could mistake your support of nerdy, ordinary girls everywhere if you sport this on your person.
In case dressing as Eleven is far too easy for you, this cap is an exact replica of the one worn on Dustin’s head. Pair with a vintage t-shirt, a burning curiosity for science, chocolate pudding, and a compass to pull off the look. Don’t forget his winning grin!
If you were to use this in Hawkins the smell of fresh waffles wafting out from your kitchen might *just* be strong enough to attract Eleven from the Upside Down. These two waffle irons are under £20/$20, so they're a bargain for the hot, sweet, doughy treats that make breakfast instantly 78% better.
