Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Drink Tokens, Candy Mugs and Double Bobbleheads
Howdy, partners. We're back for another week of showing you five of our favorite promo products we saw in our travels. This week's installment even includes some on-the-ground reporting from a couple of local events. Let's get to it!
1. Kyler Murray Dual Bobblehead
🚨 New Bobble Alert 🚨
Being a one-of-a-kind athlete in two sports? That’s bobble-worthy. Introducing the officially licensed Kyler Murray Oklahoma Sooners Dual Sport Bobblehead from FOCO.#goFOCO #OU #Oklahoma #BoomerSooner #KylerMurray #Football #Baseball #QB #OUDNA pic.twitter.com/Zkx9Hjuetn

Dual-sport athletes are rare in the pros. It's pretty much just Barry Sanders, Bo Jackson and Michael Jordan (sort of). But it's more common in college. You'd be surprised how many NFL players played college baseball, and how many MLB players played football. So, this is a cool celebration of one big-name athlete's Oklahoma days.
2. BreakingT's 'Tank Bowl' T-shirt
Want to celebrate the Dolphins’ futile season? There’s a T-shirt now. https://t.co/wgejGlk3bL

The winless Miami Dolphins registered their fifth loss on Sunday versus the previously winless Washington Redskins. Their 17-16 setback in the "Tank Bowl" gave BreakingT the inspiration to hawk this T-shirt that reflects the team's pole position for the top selection in next year's NFL Draft.
3. House of Vans Drink Tokens
We checked out the House of Vans event here in Philly, which included live music, skateboarding, art exhibits and more. For grabbing a beer outside, you had to purchase these Vans-branded wooden drink tokens. Were they a sort of unnecessary middle man? Sure. Were they a cool branded product at a very logo-heavy event? Definitely.
4. Candytopia's 'Will Work For Candy' Mug
The Candytopia exhibit that is currently thrilling spectators in Philadelphia and elsewhere bills itself as a place "where colossal candyfloss constructions meld with a tantalizing taffy twistedness." Sweets devotees, therefore, can make their cravings for confections obvious through this colorful mug we spied at the Philly location.
5. Snoopy x Van Gogh Merchandise
A Van Gogh exhibition opens tomorrow in Ueno, Tokyo, and it’s being promoted by Snoopy. You can buy toys of Snoopy dressed as Van Gogh there. pic.twitter.com/0DD4mwLRyl

There's a Vincent Van Gogh exhibit opening in Tokyo, so naturally the museum is making Snoopy the master of ceremonies. People can buy all sorts of Van Gogh-themed Snoopy merchandise (or Snoopy-themed Van Gogh merchandise) like stuffed animals, prints, pens and more.
