OK, after the response to my previous post, I had a look and found the Unemployed Philosophers Guild which sells on line. You too can buy plush Darwins and finger puppets! There are other very cool things too.
- 'Little Thinker' plushies - scroll down to see them all. Highlights are Jane Austen (for glitterboy1), Darwin, Einstein, Gandhi (the funniest), Sherlock Holmes (for spacefall), Frida Kahlo, Poe with a raven on his shoulder, Elizabeth I (for all those DV fans), Socrates, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf. Click on them to see a larger picture and details.
- Finger puppets sets! Yes, they sell those: artists, philosopher, writers, psychologists, revolutionaries, composers, and evil politicians.
- Individual magnetic finger puppets - an incredible range of writers, scientists, and even minor deities. And there's another Sherlock Holmes one for spacefall too. What can I say; this site rivals the ThinkGeek one.
Ooh, and click around on the tags in Collections; you get anything related to that subject.
And reapermum, you can buy Racing Nuns at Amazon.co.uk. I also found some on eBay.
[Edit I am now cruising the ThinkGeek site and have found the 'meh' t-shirt one of the IT Crowd characters was wearing. I know at least one other person wanted one. I shall add it to my list for when I next buy from there.
