The Simpsons Stick ems

The Simpsons Stick ’ems are weird little rubber figures with suction cups on the back, released in September 2009 to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. They could apparently be used to play some half-assed Jacks-style game, but I doubt anybody ever did.

One was available each day for sixteen days with the purchase of an Overlord Murdoch – I mean, News Corp Australia – newspaper. That’s the Herald Sun in Victoria, The Courier-Mail in Queensland, etc. I’m not sure if they were ever available outside Australia.

Along with the basic set (pictured above), there were also rare, special edition versions of each: the six family members (including Grampa) came in a pseudo-gold variant, while the other ten had glow-in-the-dark versions. Those are pictured below, but I’m still missing a few of them.

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.
