Plush wolves- you'd be able to choose which coat it has and if it has a radio collar or not, or a limpy leg to make it like your ingame wolves!

That could be pretty expensive though but I could see a lot of people buying it.

A shirt with an annoyed looking wolf (rolling its eyes, perhaps?) saying "Oh, please, tell me more about "alpha" wolves."

A shirt with you, your mate and your pups that says "All four of my puppies made it to the rendezvous site and all I got was this T-shirt"?

Plush wolves would have me sold in a heartbeat!

How about "Wolf coats", hoodies based on the ingame coat customizations?

Gonna echo everyone on the mugs and non-logo merchandise. Never picked up my t-shirt when I had the chance, so it would be neat to see merchandise come back!

Totally seconding both of these quotes. Yass! Tho maybe *please* make the shirts in a comfier material than a lot of merch shirts (like the cotton stuff at target, which is comfy and actually breathes, not the awful, heavy, scratchy stuff that a lot of souvenir tees are made of...for folks who sweat a lot or live somewhere hot, that ain't pleasant lol, and maybe the shirts could be made in both juniors and adult sizes eventually if they sell well enough, so the wide age and size range of people on WQ could get stuff that fits properly).

Also gonna agree with the keychain and figurine ideas; hard to go wrong there. That'd be cool to have, like Pearly's plushie idea, customizable options for the figurine ideas too. The figurines should be something big enough to see but something that can fit on most peoples' desks, shelves, etc. Really just the medium/regular size of the plastic animal figures you generally see (like Safari LTD/Schleich/etc) would be great. There could maybe be different sizes of the plushies and figurines too. Like start with small and medium and eventually add large once you can be sure people are buying this stuff (which likely won't even be an issue tho).

I think some of the less expensive but most popular and universal items to start with (which will also quickly make up for the production cost in sales) would be things like hats, keychains, and mugs. Like maybe things could gradually be added to the shop once merch sales are clearly continuing or even increasing. I have a feeling that those three items would become and remain some of the most popular merch items since, again, basically anybody on here could afford and make use of them.

So some keychain ideas. The rubber-logo-style ones would obviously be a good choice; classic keychain type and since they're flexible yet durable it's not like they really ever would get banged up/chipped by clunking around on your bag, keyring, whatever.

Also the kind that have a picture of some kind in clear plastic with smooth corners. There could be one for each location in the game maybe, or each coat? Maybe even an option where people could send in their screenshots for custom ones. All kinds of stuff you could do with those.

Edit: I really don't know about this but a possible thing could be little plastic picture frames, either WQ color scheme or maybe, like faux-wood with some trees, pawprints, antlers, etc on the border with text in the WQ color scheme, that say your achievement(s) of choice*? Just a small thing probably, like a couple inches, and then have regular-photo-frame-size options, but I think they'd be cool. They could have a pop-out kickstand thing so you could prop them up on your desk or bookshelf. I don't know if that's viable or if anyone would really go for this but just putting it out there. I'll have to draw the frame design ideas and add the pictures later.

For the text around the frame, you could also maybe pick from things like:
Spoiler
Show
> Memories
> Pack
> Teamwork
> Friends are family
> The strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
> Go where the wind takes you
> Follow the scents
> Enjoy the fresh air
> Remember to appreciate nature
> No place left unexplored
> One big happy family
> One small but happy family
> Through thick and thin
> Enjoy the seasons
> Let your voice be heard


*Also, maybe people would order the frame, and then there'd be a guide to sizing your screenshot to fit the frame size you have. And the text things could be switchable; like you just order another one when you want it.

Edit: ...how did I not think of this next one till now lol. Each text thing could just clip onto the frame. There'd be no issues with sizing or any of that to figure out, like there'd be with stuff like pegs and whatnot.

The option of buying a seasonal or location/based frame would be cool too. Maybe there could be a 'regular/go-to' frame and then the specific ones. Otherwise just clip-on or peg-on decor to change the trees and such based on the season and location. But I think just getting each frame would work better, perhaps. Less little parts floating around and whatnot.

I think stickers would be an absolute must-have, they're usually small and easy to put on things, so they're popular (and I really like them myself anyway)! Hoodies and shirts seem like they'd be a good idea, too!

Stickers and maybe magnets and pins/buttons would be cool and something everyone on here could use and afford.

Gosh, I agree. The hoodies would also be a solid item; I'd probably shoot for those two the most. :D

(Ideas I've seen on the thread organized for the mods/devs :) )
-Tshirts
-Hoodies
-Mugs
-Bed sets (blankets, pillow cases, ect.)
-Posters
-Baseball hats
-Collect-able figrues
-Charms (necklaces, bracelet charms, earings, ect.)
-Signs (like the one that said "Wolf Crossing" like the one Keyyva showed!)
And possibly even faux (fake) fur wolf tails and ears? I know there's a large amount of us players that are also furries! (Myself included) ^w^

{Edit:}
-Plushies!
I don't really know what to put here so . . . HELLO

Of course because I'm broke I will most likely not be able to get any of the WQ merch but I still like the idea of there being small collectables or T-shirts with WQ logos and ect.

~Plushies
~Earings
~Bracelet/Necklace charms
~Stickers
~T-shirts
~Small collectables
~Hoodies with ears attached to the hood
~Pencils, Pens, Texters/Markers

I'm not really one for buying and sporting a large variety of fan merch. I'd probably only consider a sticker, keychain, mug, t-shirt, and a sweatshirt. Hoodies are too bulky down here in the south but sweaters are nice. I'd suggest that rather than prioritizing a variety have a smaller selection of really good quality clothing merch. The sweater I got from Ireland is a wonderful example, it's thin and light but has a soft slightly fuzzy material on the inside and I love it. As for designs, along with the general wolf and what not maybe something more modern and geometric? For example, I really love the simple but eye-catching designs that pop up if you google geometric wolf tattoo. Personally, I'd buy a simple sweatshirt with the most simple and inconspicuous design possible. Besides those simple things that I could hold onto for a while and don't draw much attention I don't think I'd venture much further.

I agree ^^ I really do enjoy simplistic merch as well, and something a bit more inconspicuous like silhouettes or fine-line style. I think a lot of the older users would agree?

Aside from shirts and hoodies, I think baseball caps and beanies would be a solid product. As well as little knick knacks like keychains, magnets, stickers, wolf figurines, patches, etc. Fake tattoos would be pretty cool too I think?

Definitely hats and knick-knacks. Those are things basically everyone would go for. I also think they should bring back the WQ patches too, those were cool.
