20 Beatlemania Breakthroughs

Beatles Merchandise From Finger Drums to Fab Four Footwear

— June 17, 2011 — Pop Culture
It doesn’t matter what decade we’re in, people just can’t seem to get enough of Beatles merchandise. From Fab Four-inspired footwear to Cirque du Soleil shows, the Beatles brand has effortlessly extended its reach to all corners of the consumer world.

If you want to prove you’re a hardcore Beatles fan and you’re also an avid chess player, for example, then there’s simply no excuse for you not to own a Ringo Starr hands chessboard. The fantastic chess set even goes so far as to model its pieces after the famous drummer’s hands. Other Beatles merchandise includes tribute guitars, Yellow Submarine-inspired tea steepers and plush toys. Personally, I’m a big fan of all the incredible Beatles Rockband-related products that have been released recently—especially the Rickenbacker guitar controllers and the Beatles Rockband game itself.
