Pros:

  • Cutely designed
  • Soft and squishy

The SuperCute Plush could be the best plush toy we’ve come across in quite some time. This large 9.5-inch plush collectible is going to put a smile on your face.

Made from high-quality materials, this little creature looks extremely cute. It’s soft to the touch as well, and you’ll find yourself hugging it in no time to get a feel of how soft it is.

It has a rather odd look to it, and if we were to guess, we’d say it ’s because of the triangle-shaped mouth.

Check Price on Amazon

If you’re looking for a Stranger Things t-shirt, you should probably keep looking. This shirt was very different than it was advertised.

Rather than being a sweatshirt material, it’s a normal t-shirt. It also was poorly made and had a green dye on the shirt, which it wasn’t advertised to have.

We contacted the manufacturer to tell them but they never responded, and the customer service department was impossible to reach.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the upside down based on Stranger things?

The upside down is a parallel universe to Hawkins, Indiana (or simply Earth) where the paranormal predominates. In the series, a portal/wormhole was opened in the lab of Dr. Brenner, allowing the Demogorgon and other creatures from the upside down to slip through and wreak havoc on the human world.

Scientists are still scratching their heads as they try to explain how it is possible to breach the multi-dimensional parallel universes. One popular explanation is that someone purposely constructed it as a way for people to enter and exit earth and the upside down without having to endure a lengthy and risky interstellar voyage.

What are the floating things in the upside down?

The upside down is a parallel dimension to our world where an alternate reality to ours exists. The parallel dimension appears nearly identical to our own world, except that the environment is run by the Mind Flayer, a fearsome monster that eats humans and creatures alike.

Most of the floating lights are insects or eggs. The Mind Flayer releases a mist that crawls into the victims mouth and impresses the image of the Flayer into their mind. The result is that the human then works for the Mind Flayer without being aware of it.

Will Byers in upside down?

Never say never! The Upside Down is frightening, but not necessarily evil. It’s unclear what the Upside Down is or what it wants. But it’s definitely a place you don’t want to end up if you can help it.

You should continue to be cautious if you witness any strange happenings around you. But you should not be afraid of the Upside Down itself, because you might be surprised to learn that it might not be as bad as you think.

Is there water in the upside down Stranger things?

No, there is no water in the upside down Stranger Things. In the episode, Will Byers describes going through the portal as, “It was like falling into a pool of water.” In the strange dimension, you can breathe and survive. That being said, in the episode when Will Byers‒s family first goes to search for him at the quarry, there is a brief shot of water. It harkens back to the first season, when Will’s brother, Jonathan, who questions the truth of everything, runs through the forest. He falls into a stream, and the water causes his clothing to change from black and green to blue and red.

Conclusion

Stranger Things merchandise is quickly making its presence known, and although we are huge fans of the series, we can’t make any claims on the quality of the items.

We are careful to avoid blatant advertising, and we are only listing fan-items – items that are part of the show universe. So check out some of our favorite pieces and accessories from The Upside Down.
