Discount Tintin Merchandise

Our friends at Shop Tintin are doing a special promotion of discounted Tintin Merchandise in the run up to Christmas.

24 Days of Tintin

For 24 days, one day per Tintin Album, they are doing a special Tintin merchandise promotion that lasts for just 24 hours. As I write this, they are on Day 5 – The Blue Lotus and are offering a 30% discount of a package of the fascimile edition of The Blue Lotus, a great figurine and a Tintin jigsaw.

These are real “blink and you’ll miss them” promotions with genuine discounts. If you’ve had your eye on some Tintin merchandise or you are wondering about a christmas gift for the Tintin fan in you life, you need to keep an eye on the shop’s blog. Each day, there is a new post with details of a new special offer.

Travels of a Boy Reporter

Tintinology has been helping Shop Tintin with the Tintin merchandise promotion by putting together a bit of trivia about each book and a special extra treat: A map of Tintin’s journey in the featured book. Unlike the normal Travels of a Boy Reporter map, these map only feature a single book. Around Europe and the Red Sea, areas where Tintin travelled extensively, this make the individual journey much easier to see as the example below shows.
