These are four Superman buttons originally produced by Ata-Boy in 2008. The buttons, each measuring at 1.25-inches in diameter, feature an array of designs including artwork from Jose Luiz Garcia-Lopez and Jerry Ordway. The buttons can still be found for sale at select Six Flags theme parks.
Peachtree Playthings, headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, produced this Superman Magic Towel in 2015. This little compressed wafer of cloth, measuring 2-inches by 2-inches, will unfold and expand when placed in water (after taking off the cellophane and front and back labels, of course).
This little guy is a Superman Figural Keyring (keychain) produced by Monogram International Inc. (M.I.I.) in 2015. Made of rubber from a single mold, it was designed with the figure’s arms out to its side. The figure does not stand on its own, but is still a very cute keyring to take anywhere.
Continuing with my additions of Superman Celebration memorabilia from Metropolis Illinois, this version of the “Metropolis: Home of Superman” magnet features artwork of Superman flying in a horizontal position against a sky background within an ’S’ symbol shape. It measures 2-and-a-half inches high and has shiny almost metallic paint.
In its day, the Warner Bros. Studio Store was a treasure trove of goodies. As a Superman fan, I found myself spending quite a long time in the store looking at all the collectibles. One of my acquisitions there back in 1998 was this Superman Bean Bag figure which stands at 10.5 inches tall. The interesting thing about this stuffed figure is that only the upper torso, shoulders, and lower legs are filled with “beans” and the rest is filled with fiber.
Here is another collectible magnet from the Superman Celebration in Metropolis Illinois. This “Metropolis: Home of Superman” magnet measures 3-and-a-half inches high and features a variation of Neal Adams’ Superman breaking chains artwork above the title.
Here is another of the many promotional merchandise found in Metropolis Illinois. This is a Metropolis Illinois Home of Superman magnet from 1991 that features an adaptation of the flying Superman artwork originally designed by artist Neal Adams. The magnet was produced by Magnetic Collectables in Cape Girardeau in Missouri.
