Now With Added Plath…

One last finger puppet/ magnet for the store…just like the others, she’s only $6.


Rubber Ducks part III – Son of the Return of the Night of the Ducks

Do we even need to explain? We sold a lot of ducks so Chris bought more. She’s an un-stoppable duck purchasing machine. These, and all our other ducks are $1 each.

New Mugs! Now with bonus penguins.

A new shipment of Rickert & Beagle mugs in now in stock! Plenty more of the popular “diner” style (the flared mug with the very heavy bottom)


We’ve added a second mug style with a bigger handle and plenty more room for your hot beverage of choice inside. As always, our mugs are $8 each, microwaveable and dishwasher safe.IMG_1626

Each mug features the logo on the front and a tiny rocket ship traversing the inside. Rocket ship placement is at the discretion of our mug-maker (Chris’ dad) so you’ll want to investigate each mug to find the perfect one for you!


Because the mug-maker has a strong sense of whimsy (and a history of travel to Antarctica) a few of this mug shipment feature bonus penguins! (You’ll have to check carefully before you buy, there are very few penguins)


Gifts, Gifts, Gifts

Buying for someone who isn’t a reader? We still think you should buy them a book, but if you really need something else, here are a few suggestions from Rickert & Beagle! Remember that we can take online or phone orders and ship anywhere in the world!


Only $8, with a rocket ship zooming around on the inside and our logo on the front. Dishwasher safe, microwave safe and from an indie supplier in NY (Chris’ dad!)

Life is meaningless, but you should still brush your teeth.

Dungeon Roll, the New Reason We Aren’t Getting Anything done Around Here

Steve found a game and told Chris about it. And Chris bought a case of copies. Because that’s the kind of crazy she is.

The perfect game for RPG lovers and people who have never picked up a role playing game in their lives. It takes all of five minutes to learn and a full game with two players takes less than half an hour.

If you want to demo the game stop by and ask Chris to play a round with you. The full game (which is all 2-4 players need) is only $20 and the expansion pack with eight more characters is only $5!
