From The Mailbag...(another t-shirt giveaway)

On Monday, we asked people to help us create a list of places mental_floss magazine is sold. You came through. We also said we'd give away t-shirts to a few lucky contributors.

unknown-3.jpg"¢ We picked a number at random (as you can see on the Post-it Note, #112). Our first winner is the person whose comment number matched. Congrats to Zack, who has seen the mag at Barnes & Noble in Shelby Township, MI.

"¢ Our second winner would have been the person who picked our secret location (we chose The Regulator Bookshop on Ninth Street in Durham, NC). Unfortunately, nobody got this one.

"¢ We also said we'd award a t-shirt for the most obscure location. I'm not seeing a ton of crazy places. So let's keep the contest going. Tell us other places you can buy mental_floss, and you'll have two more chances to win a free t-shirt:

1) We'll pick another lucky number.
2) The most obscure place wins.

Unless there are any questions, let's begin. (Leave your comments here, not under the original post.)

[And if you don't want to play our silly games but still want mental_floss merchandise, you can subscribe to the magazine or buy yourself some t-shirts.]

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
