I WANNA GO HOME (PAGE)

I receive loads of emails asking if there are any Bing and Flop dolls, shirts, etc commercially available.

Alas, at present, there is no 'real' merchandise around, apart from a Bing apron that ran for a short while through a book-club. But what's wonderful is that there are people out there making their own Bing merchandise! See the Bingster Gallery (aka Bing Blog) for examples of these remarkable items.

If you'd like to make your own Bing stuff, here are a few ideas to get the juices flowing. All links below lead you to the DOWNLOAD ART page for Bing images, suitable for printing out on iron-on transfer paper (get the best you can), plus some other print + make Bing stuff.

FOR IRON-ON TRANSFERS ONTO CLOTHING, I RECOMMEND HIGH-QUALITY IRON-ON TRANSFER PAPER SUCH AS KODAK--I'VE TRIED THE CHEAP STUFF AND RUINED SOME CLOTHES. KODAK IRON-ON PAPER WAS BY FAR THE BEST!

If you do make any Bing merchandise unlike the things on this page, send in a photo. I'll post it.

SOCKS
Buy a whole bunch and make them in groups of 3 so that when a sock gets lost, you still have a pair to wear.
UNDERPANTS
Always helps to tell which way goes forward, especially for the boys. It even helps with toilet training, since kids dont want to 'wet Bing'. When this fails to work, the Bing is there to remind parents and toddlers, 'Never mind, Bing, it's no big thing.'
UNDERSHIRTS/VESTS
"Binged" Marks and Spencer undershirts/vests. I made a bunch of these for my daughter and her friends when they were 2 years old, and some of them still insist on wearing their worn-out Bing and Flop vests 5 years later.
