100 Years of Roald Dahl: Etsy Products!

I'm so excited to be taking part in the 100 Years of Roald Dahl Celebratory Blog Tour! I grew up reading Dahl's books and even watching the movies. Recently, I have begun thinking that I should collect the books and reread some of the titles from my childhood, as well as read some of Dahl's works for the first time, as I definitely haven't read them all!

Now is a great time to start your Dahl collection because his children's novels have been given a new look in paperback (there are even some select titles in hardcover such as Matilda and James and the Giant Peach).

Above you can see the new paperback covers for Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Witches. I love Quentin Blake's illustrations!

Today, in honor of 100 Years of Roald Dahl, I thought I would share some fun Dahl themed products that are available on Etsy. If you don't know, Etsy is a place where people can create all sorts of items and then sell them (along with vintage and other such items). Dahl is such an iconic author, as are many of his characters, that I thought you might be interested in grabbing one of these fun items below!

Matilda Purse Clutch from the Etsy shop Marjorie Handmade. This clutch is $24 and it comes from Australia! The shop includes products from other Dahl novels too such as The Twits, The BFG, and more!

Your choice from one of 6 different Roald Dahl books - a Book Locket Necklace/Bracelet/Key Ring from The Locket Library, based in the U.K. Depending on what you choose, these start at $8.05.

Handmade Roald Dahl Themed Journal from the Etsy shop Iartjournal, based in the U.K. You can buy this for $12.74!

James and the Giant Peach Ornament from the Etsy shop Novel Adornment. You can buy this starting at $5 (other options raise the price a bit) and the shop is based in the U.S.

Original Book Art, Esio Trot by Roald Dahl from the Etsy shop ShireArts, based in the U.K. This is being sold for $20.10. There are other Dahl books available for sale too!

Over on the right, is the Roald Dahl Bookmark with a quote from him. This is from the Etsy shop SJCampbellCreative and the shop is based in the U.S.

On the left here, you get another look at the bookmark. At the end of the quote, there are some beads and another metal addition that says roald dahl.

You can buy this for $20!


I had a ton of fun finding all of these Roald Dahl items on Etsy, and I hope you enjoyed looking them over. We have shops from the U.K, the U.S., and Australia - so I hope most of you reading will be able to find something you enjoy and that won't cost you too much. I do recommend looking at shipping if the shop is out of your country - some aren't too bad!

That Matilda purse is so cute! And I love the ornament. I need to drop some subtle hints to my husband to get it for me for Christmas. :)

I loved Roald Dahl as a kid. I am looking forward to reading more of his stuff with my kids.

What a great prize - I don't think there are many people that don't love at least one of Roald Dahl's books - I got my (adult) daughter a BFG t-shirt a few years back which she wore to watch the film much to her husband's disgust - sadly they don't make them any more though.

OMG! You find the most interesting things! I think my fave book is still Willie Wonka.

Jennifer Humphries said...

100 years! Wow! I have read every one of those books and have made sure to read them with my kiddos when the time is right for them. Thanks for your fab giveaway! I just entered :)

What a fantastic giveaway. Thanks so much for a chance to win! I have been a fan of Roald Dahl since I was a kid. I recently reread Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and the BFG. Still love his writing today. :)

I adore the little clutch. Ronald Dahl is magic :)

Leslie A said...

So sad I missed the contest! We have a bunch of the Dahl books, though, and haven't read more than one or two with my girls. I need to remedy that soon!

Oh FUN etsy products!! I was given the complete box set of Dahl's books last Christmas and am slowly making my way through all of them and enjoying them thoroughly :D
