Cowabunga Christmas: Day 23 (Cookie Jar)

Welcome to Cowabunga Christmas - the 2015 edition of 24 Days of Turtle. From December 1st through 24th, the Turtle Powered advent calendar will feature daily holiday-themed treasures from every era of TMNT.

Let the countdown 'til Christmas continue with DAY 23!

Santa is coming in just a couple days. Are you prepared? Your biggest concern - the milk & cookies. Botch this up and your holiday could be ruined. What if you don't offer him enough? The jolly man likes to eat. Play it safe. Don't leave Santa a plate of cookies, leave him an entire jar of cookies.

The TMNT cookie jar will hold enough treats for even the biggest sweet tooth. It's well over a foot in height. That offers more space than the Technodrome! The cutesy design is lifted from the classic cartoon with a copyright of 1990. Cookie jars were made with the likeness of each Turtle, but I opted for only Raphael. No one can eat 4 jars of cookies - not even Santa.

The packaging design is both bodacious and bizarre. I love Raphael riding a skateboard, spouting out a cheesy one-liner. That's 90s TMNT goofery at its finest. But what's bizarre is the parts of the box that are hidden with matching colored tape. It's only over spots where the TMNT logo would be present. This gets my mind swirling in conspiracies. Copyright issues? A bootleg? The work of an elf drunk on the job? I may never know...

Does the cookie jar make s good gift? 

I've never met a person who didn't like cookies. I assume there's a flavor out there for everybody. So who wouldn't love a TMNT cookie jar? It's utilitarian, stylish & fun - attributes that anyone, of any age, can appreciate. Jam the jar filled with cookies this Christmas. Santa will stuff his gut with Turtle Power and feel obligated to leave you more toys. And more toys are always good. My life credo.

Check back tomorrow for DAY 24, the final day of Cowabunga Christmas! Can't wait until then? Take a trip with the Ghost from Christmas Past to see what The Sewer Den put on display on December 23rd in 2013 and 2014.
