Hi all

After years of being asked to come up with MN merchandise and (aside from some incredibly tight t-shirts with virtual mother on them way back in the early-2000s) pretty much sticking our collective fingers in our ears, we've finally found someone who can help us produce and sell a qualiteee online range - hopefully available in time for Christmas. And we're looking for your input.

We reckon a range of T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and mugs with Mumsnet in-jokes/ popular phrases - which is what folks have mentioned in the past - but is there anything else we've collectively missed? And what do you want on them? A T-shirt telling all and sundry to LTB? A mug asking whether YABU? A hoody announcing that it' really best to RTFT?

Ideas very much welcome please grin

A pocket diary, or family organiser diary perhaps?

RTFT= Read the fucking thread.

Cunt bunting is surely a must have?

A tiny emoticon badge/brooch type thing.

I want a scarf with RTFT, LTB and LDA (lemon drizzle anyone) on it.

Oh gosh. Problem with popular phrases is they change so often. Even a top with "pombear anyone?" is more likely to get a "huh?" than a giggle let alone a "Is that you UCM?" mug or an "In Cod we trust" hoody.

I like the brew idea.

'Mumsnetter on Board' for the car?

A mug with YABU on and the MN Logo

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Fri 15-Nov-13 12:44:02

I'd like a tshirt which says DFONTAD! wink grin

Sparklingbrook Fri 15-Nov-13 12:45:04

Something with 'Did you mean to be so rude' on?

NomDeClavier Fri 15-Nov-13 12:45:15

Definitely a YABU mug. It will go in DH's stocking.

I think you will need to be v careful with any t-shirts/hoodies. Risk of looking tacky IYKWIM.

What could we put ODFOD on? Now that could work as a bumper sticker.

RubyRR Fri 15-Nov-13 12:53:38

A sandwich box with naice ham on so I can take my sandwiches to work and out myself

RubyRR Fri 15-Nov-13 12:54:27

Also will they be nice mugs or the horrible ones they seem to like printing photos on?

I wouldn't want something that had the MN logo on, but something more subtle would be good.

Sparklingbrook Fri 15-Nov-13 12:56:43

YY please make them look nice and be good quality. <worries>

MN doesn't deserve crappy merchandise-it needs to be good.

I wouldn't buy or wear any kind of hoody or t-shirt even if it was style and beauty approved. But a mug saying yabu on one side and yanbu on the other I would buy. So depending on what you think of the person you are having tea with you can display the appropriate side!

Or a mug saying Mumsnet Royal Tea ! Hah genius.

I might buy an official mumsnet scarf too.

RubyRR Fri 15-Nov-13 12:58:18

I'm getting into this, what was the zombie back pack one? I'd like a small bag to carry round with random letters on I can waffle about zombies if anyone asks, should get me a seat by myself.

GoofyIsACow Fri 15-Nov-13 12:59:40

Cake tins/boxes with 'i'm not a citrus titted arsepart' on them

YABU car sticker

'My yoni says no'ni' for the hardcores!
