Homer & Bart Simpson Air Freshener

Year: 2004

Homer Bart Simpson air freshener

 

Not much to say about this. It’s a car air freshener, featuring Homer and Bart in a pose you’ll often see on promo images. The bottom of the figure states that it’s from 2004, but makes no mention of any specific company, so I have no idea if it’s part of a set.

It doesn’t smell like anything in particular, but it was probably marketed as that unspecified “New Car Smell”.

Simpsons Hamilton Sculpture – Marge “Happy Homer-Maker”

Line: Hamilton sculpture collection – The Simpsons Nuclear Family
Year: 2003

Simpsons Hamilton Sculpture Happy Homer Maker

From the “Nuclear Family” collection of the Simpsons line of Hamilton sculptures, “Happy Homer-Maker” features Marge juggling the groceries and Maggie, while Santa’s Little Helper “helps”.

Mine is numbered 4031.

The Hamilton sculptures are among my favourite items in my collection. Unfortunately, due to the amount of pieces in the line, and the price of each, I haven’t bought many. Those I do have I either scooped up cheap, or bought because I particularly like them.

Early Mattel Action Figures

Line: Mattel
Year:
1990
Set: 7 – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Nelson, Bartman

This line of figurines by Mattel was one of the first sets of Simpsons toys to be released. They can be hard to find now, and when you do, they can sell for crazy amounts. I’ve seen the full set, unopened, selling for $2000 on eBay. Or, you might luck out and find them going cheap.

I managed to find Bart and Maggie at second-hand markets for a couple bucks, and picked up Homer, Nelson and another Bart on eBay for about the same. They obviously didn’t know what they had! That’s just the basic figures though: I don’t have any of the accessories pictured above.

Have: Homer, Bart, Maggie, Nelson

The Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart Magnet Straws

Line: 7/11 Slurpee Straws
Year:
2007
Set:
Homer, Homer & Plopper, Bart, Marge, Lisa, Apu

Simpsons Kwik E Mart magnet straws

These magnet straws came with the Slurpee/Squishee cups, in 7/11 stores (done up to look like the Kwik-E-Mart) to promote The Simpsons Movie. The characters are held on with magnets, and can be removed from the straws.

The Simpsons “TV Time” Hallmark keepsake

Line: Hallmark Christmas keepsake
Year:
2008

The Simpsons TV Time Hallmark keepsake

Despite the piece having nothing to do with Christmas, Hallmark released TV Time as a Christmas ornament in the US and Canada in 2008. I’m not sure if it was a one-off thing, or if there were more, but I haven’t been able to find any others.

When a button on the side is pressed, the TV lights up and the Itchy & Scratchy theme plays. Well, it’s supposed to. Mine doesn’t work, for some reason.
