Merch is so often seen as the death knell of a media property, the maggots hatching in the corpse of art – but a lot of the time, the exact opposite is true. Some of the most beloved media properties of Millennial childhoods were, in one way or another, made by toys.

I’m way too old to be able to relate to that quote in anything but the vaguest terms, but part of it does explain why I am so late to the merch game, and so bad at it. Still, you’re here, and you bought something, so I get to say thank you.
Also, if there is a problem of any kind, let me know and I will do my best to sort it out ASAP.
