Bubble Hockey Snow Globe

Now that the NHL has a few outdoor games every season, this trinket makes sense. The stand even makes it easier to shake! Sadly you can’t play with it.

Reminds me of that Pocket Rod Hockey toy that came out a few decades ago, which is playable. Not sure how good a game can be between two people, but I want one.

Wayne’s World Tabletop Hockey

I’ve been thinking about how it would be fun to have a mini 1 vs 1 tabletop hockey set, with a single shooter squaring off against a goalie. There was no interesting way to showcase that concept until I thought of Wayne’s World, specifically the scene where Wayne and Garth are playing street hockey.

Mini Budweiser Red Light

Budweiser’s Red Lights are awesome, I’m quite positive they are coveted by all hockey fans. I’ve yet to get one myself because I still use a dumbphone (the lights require an app), but one day, it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

NHL ’94 Tabletop Hockey

I was recently looking over some old Coleco table hockey players, and had an idea: die-cut stickers (meaning no white backdrop) on clear plastic blades. This approach would not only look good for those Coleco players, but for pixelated players too.

A New Spin On Tabletop Hockey

This is a combination of THREE hobbies I had when I was kid: tabletop hockey, hockey cards, and hockey sticker albums. I present a mini tabletop hockey set that is adorned with players and stickers found in hockey card packs. This sort of thing would only be possible if a tabletop manufacturer partnered with a hockey card maker.

I was just thinking about how these things I enjoyed as a kid are essentially extinct today. To make these ancient things appealing to today’s kids, I felt a combination of toys and playing cards might draw their attention, sort of like Bakugan.

NHL Socks

You can buy NHL-branded socks that feature the team colors, logo, and nickname. But what about socks that look just like the ones the players are wearing? No such thing exists! It’s weird. Perhaps they are too generic in appearance?

Logos could be tacked on but I don’t think they are necessary. Would be nice to just buy a pack of these at a Walmart instead of those boring white tube socks.
