Meghan Jenkins added several new items that feature catchphrases and group solidarity moments from the The The Ding Wrong Show to the show’s gear and garb store this week, which she knows viewers will enjoy.
There are several coffee mugs, each for the great price of $15.99. Each one reflects a different aspect of the show, from the Meghan Jenkins-designed and -painted logo of The The Ding Wrong Show itself, to Panda’s portrait by Meghan, to slogans the show has started to make popular: “Explode on the World,” one declares, and the opening lines from the beloved Bill Withers hit song “Lean on Me,” which finds its way into every episode of the show as every participant joins in singing it. (Or reciting it, in my non-musical case.—Mark.)
Each member of the show can lean on each other all the time every time, and a TTDWS “Lean on Me” mug is a perfect way to wake up with a cup of loyalty, as Meghan writes.
Fans can also wear one’s TTDWS loyalty with a TTDWS “Lean on Me” Pledge T-shirt, which is available in four colors and a range of sizes from $24.99.
Each episode ends with the cast joining hands virtually and declaring, “Explode on the world.” New this week is an “Explode on the World” 3/4-sleeve team two-color t-shirt available in two color schemes and a full range of sizes from $28.99.
Also new is a Tie Dye T-shirt with Panda’s portrait on the front, which is available in two color schemes—multicolor or red—in a full range of sizes from $30.99. Also with Panda’s unique Meghan Jenkins portrait is a winter beanie in black or navy blue for $23.99.
The popularity of the “Silence Please” sign seen on the set of TTDWS has led to a new “Silence Please” snapback hat, available in black or heather-gray for $24.99.
A catchphrase from the show, “Foods are eating,” is available on a “Foods Are Eating” grocery tote bag, appropriately, which is available in two colors, gray and royal blue, for $20.99.
The t-shirts and the grocery bag are 100% cotton, the team shirt is a tri-blend, and the Panda beanie is acrylic. All of the items in the store are designed by Meghan Jenkins. All the products are crafted in the U.S.
Each of the new products listed above will be shipped on January 5.
