The Best Simpsons Gifts for Simpsons fans

Updated on January 31, 2013

The Simpsons are, without a doubt, the most famous American family of all time. Go to almost any country in the world and ask anyone to name the Simpsons family and I bet 95% of people will be able to do so.

The Simpsons are very popular and there are thousands upon thousands of different pieces of Simpson merchandise available, some of which is genuine and worth buying but a lot of which is fake, counterfeit and should be avoided at all costs. Because of this you do need to exercise a bit of caution and take some care when choosing the perfect gift for a Simpsons fan.

If you are looking for the best Simpsons related gifts you have come to the right place. All the Simpsons gifts below are handpicked and represent the best Simpson merchandise out there.

The best Simpsons gifts - DVDs

The Simpsons family have been around for years and there are loads of episodes and series, as well as some specials, such as the Halloween and Christmas specials, as well a feature length movie. There is hours and hours of Simpsons footage, which is plenty to keep any Simpsons' fan happy.

Simpsons DVDs and tapes make an excellent gift for any Simpsons' fan and they will provide years of entertainment. The Simpsons have stood the test of time and their popularity hasn't dwindled one bit, therefore the Simpsons DVDs are likely to appreciate in value, so they should be seen as more of an investment.

For some top quality Simpsons movies and footage check out "Simpsons DVDs".

Homer Simpson Wacky Wobbler

The Homer Simpson Wacky Wobbler that makes an excellent gift for the older Simpsons fan. The first thing I should point out is the Homer Wacky Wobbler isn't a toy, per se. It is a 7 inch tall Homer figurine with a "nodding" head when touched. This is more of a novelty gift, although it makes an excellent ornament or show piece for a dresser or the mantelpiece, although this is not where it works best.

The Homer Simpson Wacky Wobbler works best in an automobile, and that is where mine is located. You can either sit the Homer Simpson on the dashboard or, better still, on the parcel shelf where he will simply sit there nodding away. The Homer Simpson Wacky Wobbler makes a great gift for a Simpsons' fan that is also a vehicle nut.

Simpsons Chess Set

Chess is a game of patience, skill and strategy and is popular the world over. This Simpson chess set is great and all thirty two pieces are accurate renditions of the characters that are vivid and bright, just the way they should be. If you are looking for a discreet chess set this is not the product to buy, but then why would you want a "dull and boring chess set?" The Simpsons aren't discreet are they? Oh no, the Simpsons are loud, brash and in your face and the Simpsons chess set is exactly the same.

The Simpsons 3D chess set is a gift that all Simpsons fans will like, regardless of whether they play chess or not.

Bart Simpson bed throw

The Bart Simpson fleece throw is an excellent product that will keep any Simpson fan warm during the long, cold winter months. This throw is bright, vivid, colourful and very well made. It is tough and durable and can withstand many washes before it finally starts to fade away.

The Bart Simpson fleece throw is the perfect gift for any Simpsons fan and my little nephew loves it. Whilst he is too young to even know who the Simpsons are, my sister grew up with the Simpsons family and is a big fan. The throw was more of a gift for her than my nephew however he really has taken to it and uses it as his comfort blanket.

The best Simpsons gifts - Soft Toys

Everyone loves a soft toy right? So, why not treat your Simpsons’ fan to a soft toy of their favourite character. As well as the actual Simpsons family, i.e. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, there are other Springfield residents available including Krusty the Clown, Side Show Bob, Monty Burns, Moe, Carl and Lenny to name but a few.

Soft toys have many uses and last forever, therefore they really do make an excellent gift. For some of the best Springfield soft toys currently available take a look at "Simpsons soft toys".

Lisa Simpson Wireless Keyboard

Computers, lap tops and notebooks are very common and they are items that are present in most households and this Lisa Simpson embossed wireless keyboard makes an excellent gift for any Simpson fan whose favourite character is Lisa.

This is a standard QWERTY wireless keyboard that is tough, durable and well made. Some wireless devices are difficult to sync, however this is not the case with this keyboard. It really is a doodle to get paired up to any computer, laptop, tablet or notebook and the user will be up and running in no time.

This Lisa Simpson wireless keyboard looks the biz and will make a great gift that will personalise any computer.

Want to be a bad boy like Bart?

Other than his "Krusty the Clown" doll Bart's favourite possession seems to be his trusty slingshot. Using a slingshot properly is difficult and it is very satisfying hitting a target with one.

If you want to play at being Bart Simpson check out the slingshots below. Alternatively, use the Amazon search facility and you will find penty more.

Be a musical maestro like Lisa

Lisa is a keen saxophonist and there a loads of episodes where we see just how good she is. The one that really stands out is the episode where she jams with Bleeding Gums Murphy.

The saxophone is an awesome instrument and there are many memorable pieces for it, such as Baker Street and The Pink Panther Theme to name but two. If you want to follow in Lisa's foot steps check out the saxophones below. Alternatively, use the Amazon search facility and you will find loads more.
