The Simpsons Party tablecloth

Year: 1990

The Simpsons Party tablecloth 1990I don’t know much about this, apart from the fact that it’s a tablecloth from 1990, featuring the family in weird, apparently-mid-dance poses, with a logo proclaiming this is “The Simpsons Party”.

I’ve seen other party favours, like paper plates and hats and everything, from around the same time, but this doesn’t seem like it’s part of that set: most of those follow the pink colour scheme they used a lot in the early years of the show.

Anyway, expect to see a LOT more of this around here. It’s going to be the background for basically all future photos.

Sweet Ring Imports Bubblegum Heads

Year: 1996
Line: Sweet Ring Imports
Set: 3 – Homer, Bart, Lisa

Simpsons Sweet Ring Imports Bubblegum headsThese are Simpsons Bubblegum heads from Sweet Ring Imports, and I kinda love them. I mean, they’re nothing too special: hollow plastic figures of Homer, Bart and Lisa’s heads, with their names on the bases in case you’re not from this planet and don’t know who’s who. And the fact that they’re full of gum is a nice bonus (even if it’s almost 20 years old and slightly less edible than it was when new).

No, the thing I love about them is those eyes. Everyone’s pupils are just a little too small, and it gives them a vacant, creepy stare that will consume your soul if you look at them for too long.
