When Rachel, Ross, and their “Friends” gathered at the Central Perk coffee shop, it was the cue for comedy and heart-warming camaraderie. Now, fans of the hit television show can own a full-sized replica of the coffee shop’s iconic three-seater couch.
Over the course of 10 seasons, the sit-com “Friends” rocketed to world-wide fame, in part due to the hilarious antics of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe, but also because of their heartwarming chat sessions on an orange three-seater couch in the local coffee shop, Central Perk.
Toynk, purveyors of pop-culture merchandise, has added a replica of the velvet sofa to their “Friends” collection of merchandise, and it’s sure to be a hit with fans of the show.
Central Perk devotees can outfit their kitchen with the café’s logo on salt and pepper shakers, coffee mugs, soup mugs, or a three-piece dining set with dinner plate, bowl, and mug.
Set up a large ceramic planter or two next to the sofa, and highlight a side table with a glittering snow globe, each boasting the shop’s logo. Then, take the theme to the smallest detail with photo clip holders, scented erasers, and lip balm.
And no self-respecting Central Perk aficionado would be without a 16-inch replica of the coffee shop’s sign, done in tasteful light-up neon.
The couch will set you back by $3,299.99, but it will undoubtedly be the talking point at all of your parties. If that’s a bit out of your price range, though, you can opt for it in 3D foam magnet form for just $8.99.
Central Perk seating may be the silent star of the show, but the collection is filled with merchandise themed to the “Friends” themselves, too.
Remember the picture frame surrounding the peephole on Monica’s apartment door? It’s an iconic detail that can be purchased as a trinket tray, in two photo frame styles, as a wall mirror, and in a variety of funky coffee mugs. For several dollars less, it’s even available as refrigerator magnets.
Keep your tootsies warm with men’s and women’s novelty socks featuring some of the shows best-known themes and quotes, or perk up your kitchen with the themes, quotes, and photos of the group on wine glasses, tumblers, and mugs, or on sets of four pint glasses or four shot glasses.
Phoebe, Ross, Rachel, and Chandler make a showing as adorable vinyl figures, and also as Funko Pop characters. Phoebe strikes a pose as a Superhero, Ross makes a showing dressed as Sputnik, Monica is wearing her Catwoman suit, Joey is decked out in his best Cowboy gear, and who doesn’t want a “Chandler as a Bunny” Funko Pop?
In keeping with the Central Perk theme, Gunther Chase is also available as both a Vinyl figure and a Funko Pop.
Your next gathering of friends (or your gift-giving list) will benefit from an entertaining selection of jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, or games such as show-inspired Memory Master, Scrabble, Picture Quiz, and Trivial Pursuit.
For those who simply cannot get enough of the franchise, there is even a “Friends vs Zombies” family board game.
There are 126 items to choose from, in prices ranging from $7.99 to the top-dollar sofa at over $3,000. To see the entire collection, visit Toynk.com.
