Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years (or maybe a dragon’s egg?) you’ve probably seen Game of Thrones by now. We’re six series in and it seems like we can’t get enough of the violence, nudity, trickery and treason. 

With the release of the sixth season, 60,000 of us Brits showed true commitment to the Seven Kingdoms by staying up until 2am to catch the first episode, with an estimated 2.2 million people having watched it on catch up since.

And with all this fandom comes plenty of pretty  ‘niche’ memorabilia. Translation: There really is nothing people can’t make Game of Thrones related. 

These creations prove the tales of the Starks, Targaryens and Lannisters really are taking over the world…

1. You Can Actually Buy Dragon Eggs

Sure, we all like pets – they’re nice for cuddles and for company, but dragons seem ever so slightly inconvenient to exercise, hard to predict and not very affectionate at all.

If a full fire-breathing animal isn’t your thing, but you’d still like to give a home to a winged creature, then you can get yourself a beautifully crafted dragon’s egg that will never hatch and save you money. Problem = solved.

2. Hand of the King Pins Are Real

The Hand of the King is a really important job, and if you’re considered that important in terms of Game of Thrones characters, then you’re going to want to show off about it a little bit.

For those who think that they’ve got what it takes to council the King of the Seven Kingdoms then you’re in luck, we’ve got just the thing.

The world has produced pins-a-plenty of the official symbol (you know, the hand with the ring behind it) for when you need to subtly let everyone know your vocation, without coming across conceited.

3. People Have Taken the Time To Map the Seven Kingdoms

If you’ve been wondering how to make your way from way up in the North over to King’s Landing to make your stake on the Iron Throne then fear not, there’s a map for that.

Forget Google and Atlases. Heck, forget compasses – the only navigational tool you could ever want or need is this handy little map.

Painted on silk no less, maps of the Seven Kingdoms (with handy house reference guides) are a money-can’t-buy kind of object and a really cool way to show the world that you care about the finer things in life.

4. Plastic Figurines Are Making Money

If you think things are getting a little too serious, then here’s one to bring the fun back.

Bobble headed characters are a must for every true Game of Thrones fanatic. They come in all shapes and sizes, so you can build your very own little army.

And they’re perfect for leaving on your windowsill to stare out at passers-by, giving them the signal that you, too, appreciate the wonder that is Game of Thrones.

5. Game of Thrones Costumes Are Commonplace

Hey, listen, there’s actually nothing wrong with role-play as a fully grown adult, don’t let the haters get you down.

If nothing else, the sheer number of eBay searches for GOT inspired costumes are proof that you’re not alone in your appreciation of George R. R. Martin’s genius plots.

Having a costume to hand just means you’re ready for any eventuality – from Halloween to your friends' dress-up party – and what better guise than the iconic blue dress worn by the Mother of Dragons? Can we get a D.R.E.A.M.Y?

6. LEGO Have Joined the Cult

You know what’s nice? Game of Thrones appeals to all ages. Sure, there are lots of naked breasts, quite a few beatings, and sliced throats a-plenty but really it’s a family show, don’t you think?

LEGO certainly do –  turning our best-loved characters into little squat figures. Just look at that Dire Wolf. Adorable!

These chaps are sure to be worth a fortune in the future, much like the infamous Beanie Babies, so you’d better stock up now while they’re still at pocket money prices.

7. Hunting Horns Are a Real Thing

When a glass simply won’t do, you’ll have to summon your Cupbearer to bring you a hunting horn full of wine.

We’re actually surprised everyone’s lasted this long with having to make do with glasses, when such a MAJESTIC drinking vessel was on offer elsewhere in the world. 

Just look at that detail – perfect for banqueting (or for drinking squash out of on a Wednesday night on your sofa).
