This weekend, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters. It’s been a long time coming—the reboot was first announced more than two years ago, though we’ve honestly been waiting for this moment since the animated TV series went off the air in 1996.
To celebrate this important occasion, we’ve rounded up the coolest TMNT gear, from shell backpacks to pizza tees. Because the only thing better than eating pizza is wearing pizza while eating pizza. So go ahead and go all out. This kind of thing only comes around once in a lifetime! Or, more realistically, once every 10 years. But still!
There’s no reason little kids should have all the fun. A turtle-shell backpack is both cool ~and~ useful. Think about all the stuff you can fit in there! Soooooo many pairs of nunchucks, and other things that aren’t felony-level weapons, too! It’s infinitely better than a purse, especially if you’re wearing it with a ninja-print sports jersey.
It’s not just little boys who get to indulge—it’s grown (or, OK, grown-ish because we are talking about Teenage Mutant Turtles merch after all) men, too. Ignore the status quo and buy dude stuff for a change. No one’s stopping you! This shirt + these socks = the perfect outfit to see the movie in. Pants, too, probably.
Look, we have a well-documented obsession with pizza around here (but who doesn’t?). It’s literally a pile of gooey, melty, hot cheese on top of soft doughy bread. IT IS THE BEST. And if there’s anything we’ve learned from the Turtles, it’s that people who don’t like pizza are not to be trusted. So trust the Turtles, and trust us—it’s time to show your love for a world-saving food with this mini (!!!!!) backpack and sweet T-shirt.
