More than 25 years after FRIENDS debuted, new products are being introduced into the marketplace pretty consistently.

Sure, some of them are the standard television merchandise: books, Pop! Funkos, DVD sets. But others? Well, they get very, very, very weird…

Update: Monday, July 24, 2023: Updating this post with very important news—there’s a Polly Pocket (yes, the children’s toy) FRIENDS set coming!! (It’s set to be released August 3.)

Lip balm:

The Central Perk coffee cups are cute, but it’s both very random and an odd choice of flavors. (You’d think at least one would be coffee-flavored?)


On paper, a really exciting idea. But there are a number of weird choices, from the properties being episode titles and an odd assortment of pieces.


Okay, it doesn’t come with Talk Show Host! Joey, or probably a lot of the ridiculous rules. But it’s also kind of incredible it took this long for this game to be made into a real thing.





Cupcake toppers:

Hey, if you’re having a FRIENDS-themed party, these are perfect. (Maybe for the upcoming reunion?)


Embrace your inner Gunther.

Dog bandana:

The…most iconic song from the series (outside of its theme) is “Smelly Cat.” Where are the cat-related items?!

Makeup case:

Speaking of “Smelly Cat,” this is adorable.

Wrapping paper:

Practical to wrap any of these other items in? But also kind of crazy.


There have actually been a number of really nice FRIENDS-related jewelry pieces of late, but others feel a lot more late ’90s/early ’00s.


This is one where if you know, you know, but also if you know, do you really want a sticker of this?!

And the strangest TV-related item potentially ever: Valve stem cap:
