The Monstore at Six Flags Part 5

At the Monstore, you can buy plush toys of Marshall Billy Bob Fritter, Calvin, and Buzby (in two sizes).  The characters' names are not shown on their tags---I'm just a nerd that knows their names.

It's interesting that the monsters they chose to make into plush toys are the characters that look very much like dinosaurs.  Just noticing that.

Monster Mansion merchandise also includes these three magnets shown, and identical keychain versions.  Mugs, shirts, and other souvenir logo items are also available.

The switch plate shown is from 1981.  In the late 1980s, I wrote to Six Flags asking if they had any more Monster Plantation Coloring Books (which were sold when the ride debuted), and they responded, letting me know they did not---but they sent me this switch plate and a Monster Plantation Postcard Book (which you can find on my blog) for free!  How very nice!

A Monster Plantation poster was also sold, and it is on display in the Monstore's museum.  In this picture, you will also find a Six Flags Over Georgia book by author Tim Hollis.  I actually got to meet the author in 2006 when he was writing this.  You can find my name and one of my Six Flags souvenirs in his book!
In 2009, the monsters got another store (sort of).  The park has a discount store, and in honor of the Mansion, it became Billy Bob's Bargain Bonanza.  I did not have a chance to enter this store, but I did notice that it sold merchandise from Disney/Pixar's Ratatouille!

Hopefully I'll make it back to Six Flags Over Georgia soon to see if there are any new monstrosities in the Monstore.

  1. Hmmmm, I might just have to buy that book. Are there very many pics of the Okefenokee boat ride in the book?

  2. Hey TokyoMagic! There are 10 pages devoted to Okefenokee. This was a favorite ride of the author. Like all the pictures in the book, they are black and white photos.

  3. I'm impressed by how on-model the plushes are. That's kinda rare.

  4. You are right, Peyton! They really did a nice job on these plush toys. I'm wondering if the park will eventually introduce more characters to this line.
