I grew up in North Carolina, so it was only natural for me to watch “The Andy Griffith Show”, which is set in the tiny, friendly town of Mayberry, North Carolina. I have remained a fan of this show ever since my childhood days and still watch its syndicated episodes, faithfully..
Of course, I realize that there are a legion of other fans who also love this classic television show and who enjoy collecting memorabilia related to it.
I found some great collectible items at Giftopolis, which is, in my opinion, one of the best online stores for finding a variety of quality fan memorabilia at reasonable prices.
Listed are some show-related merchandise I really liked:
Tin Sign of Aunt Bee’s Kitchen
This 12.5″ x 16.5″ Tin Sign of Aunt Bee’s Kitchen pays fine tribute to the character of Aunt Bee, wonderfully played be actress Frances Bavier.
The lovable lady who helped add warmth and charm to the home of Andy and son is pictured, in colorful detail, standing over them in the kitchen America came to love.
I like this collectible, in particular, because it gives some credit to a female cast member of this show. Since there were female characters who were pivotal to the success of this program, I wish they had more collectible items related to them.
Andy Griffith Men of Mayberry T-Shirt
This 100% cotton tee shows a detailed likeness of some of the male regulars of “The Andy Griffith Show” we loved the best, including Andy, Opie, Gomer and Barney, along with a copy of the signatures of the actors portraying them.
Andy Griffith T-Shirt Barney Nip It”
Those who know the plotlines of every episode of The Andy Griffith Show well remember Barney Fife’s classic admonition to, “Nip It!”
You can get this 100% cotton tee, featuring a likeness of the hapless Deputy Fife alongside his famous slogan. It comes in sizes Medium, Large and Extra Large.
Andy Griffith Show Mayberry Mania Game
Most collectors and fans of The Andy Griffith Show deem themselves as experts on the series.
Why not give them the opportunity to prove it by gifting them with the Andy Griffith Show Mayberry Mania Game, a trivia game created for fans by other fans. The object of the game is to answer the correct amount of questions to become an honorary deputy sheriff of Mayberry. Players get to visit well-known show locations and go through a number of tricky challenges to achieve their ultimate goal.
This game is for ages 14-years-old and older and is for 2 to 4 players or for teams of players, whichever is the most fun.
