What a Character!
Every month, we offer a special discount on some type or category of item. The items featured in our specials vary from month to month and are not planned in advance. Check this page each month to find out what is featured for a sale at that time. In order to qualify for the monthly special, you must (1) mention the discount at the time you make your initial inquiry and place your order, and (2) have your payment postmarked anytime within the month that the special is offered. It's that simple!
With the holiday season now upon us, we thought that we would turn things upside-down a bit to end our monthly specials this year. For December, we will offer 20% discounts on all items with a holiday theme to them, provided that the holiday in question is anything other than Christmas. Surprisingly enough, we have lots of items in our inventory celebrating Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Easter, Father's Day, Independence Day, among other holidays. So enjoy the hunt through our website in search of these fun gems. We wish all of you a terrific and happy and peaceful holiday season! And as 2013 ends, we want to thank all of you who have been customers of ours, whether first-time buyers or our treasured repeat customers, for your business.
On November 18th, as hard as this may be to believe, Mickey Mouse will turn 85 years old. His first appearance dates back to November 18, 1928, in the animated cartoon Steamboat Willie. Mickey is looking pretty good for his age. This month, as a birthday gift to all of you M-I-C-K-E-Y fans out there, we will offer 20% discounts on all Mickey Mouse merchandise. Happy birthday, Mickey! To quote Toni Basil (and let's face it, who doesn't love to quote Toni Basil every chance they get?!), oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey, hey Mickey!
On October 13, 1958, the first-ever book featuring Paddington Bear was published, and it was entitled A Bear Called Paddington. For decades ever since, children of all ages have loved his adventure stories; and many of us grew up reading his stories (or read them to our own children now). This month, we will honor Paddington's official start by offering 20% discounts on all merchandise featuring that character. Just to sweeten the pot, we will also offer 10% discounts on all items featuring other bear characters. Happy 55th, Paddington!!
Now that everyone is back to school, it's time to focus on their hard-working parents. With Labor Day falling in September, we thought it would be appropriate to recognize that holiday this month. Throughout the month of September, we will offer 15% discounts on all items with a work-related or a job-specific theme to them. You work hard for your money (so do we!), but you won't have to work hard for these savings.
Very soon, it will be time for summer break to end and for students to have to return to school. Boy, has the Summer of '13 gone by quickly!! In recognition of the "back to school" season, throughout the month of August, we will offer 15% discounts on all items with a school-related theme to them. That includes such items as pens, pencils, note boards, books, and all characters shown holding or using any of these "back to school" supplies / items.
On July 19, 1941, Tom and Jerry appeared in their first-ever animated cartoon together. The episode was entitled The Midnight Snack. So here we are, 72 years later, and decided that it was well worth wishing them a long-overdue happy birthday. Throughout the month of July, we will offer 20% discounts on all items featuring Tom, Jerry, or Tom and Jerry together. Additionally, since they were part of the MGM cartoon family for so very long, we'll also offer 10% discounts this month on all other characters from MGM Studios.
Brides . . . grooms . . . June is the month of weddings. Celebrating that lovely expression of happiness, throughout the month of June, we will offer 15% discounts on all characters that are married. As an added bonus, if you tell us the name of the character's spouse, we'll increase that discount to 20% for you. Ahhhh, springtime, love is in the air!
In honor of Mother's Day, throughout the month of May 2013, we will offer 20% discounts on all characters that are mothers. Just to go along with that, we'll also offer 10% discounts on all female characters that happen not to be mothers. Happy Mother's Day, one and all!
This month marks the 46th birthday of the Peanuts character Woodstock, who first appeared in the comic strip on April 4, 1967. He's lookin' pretty good for such an ol' bird! As a "happy birthday" to Woodstock, throughout the month of April 2013, we will offer 20% discounts on all merchandise featuring Woodstock. With that kind of discount, his merchandise just might fly off our shelves this month!
As hard as it may be to believe, this month marks the 78th birthday/anniversary of Porky Pig, who first appeared in the March 9, 1935 release of Warner Brothers' cartoon I Haven't Got a Hat. This month, we'll offer 15% discounts on all Porky Pig items in our inventory. If the item you select happens to feature Porky along with any of his fellow Looney Tunes friends, we will increase the discount to 20% for you. Short and sweet, that's this month's special, and to quote Porky himself: Th-th-th-that's all folks!
Ahhhh, the month of love is upon us, with Valentine's Day falling midway through this month. Fans of love that we are, and eternal romantics-at-heart that we can be (well, sometimes anyway), we here at What a Character! thought that we would offer our fellow romance lovers a nice discount this month. All items in our inventory featuring themes of love or romance will be eligible for a 15% discount. As our friend, Pepe LePew, just might say: L'amour . . . toujours!
Happy new year, one and all! It has been quite some time since we last offered a discount on Walter Lantz character merchandise, so we thought that we would correct this situation this month. Throughout the month of January, all Walter Lantz cartoon character items--which include such classics as Woody Woodpecker, Oswald, Chilly Willy, among other "oldies but goodies"--will be eligible for a 15% discount. If the item that you are purchasing happens to include more than one of the Walter Lantz characters, we will "up" that discount to 20% for you.
