I have no idea how many times I've seen this same darn robe hook and towel bar relisted in the D&D category.  What on earth is seller thinking?

Yes. TSR made some Beach Towels based on the cartoon IIRC.

TSR made some beach towels based on the cartoon property except none featured the kids, or Venger and the DM, in the cartoon themselves.  It seems TSR was more deliberate in licensing the kids' and primary character images than secondary characters such as Kelek, Warduke, Strongheart, etc. who come up quite often in Colorforms, party supplies, etc.

And there were beach towels licensed earlier, before the cartoon was even imagined... but those are much rarer. (See the old Sutherland auctions.)

Wow, D&D beach towels? Now that is hardcore. Can anyone provide a pic? Any other non-game related items out there?

That seller has over a thousand items, on ebay right now, so they must be using seller software of some sort.  They probably clicked the wrong category on a software menu somewhere (or entered the wrong category number into a box) and never noticed.

I've done it a million times. I call it "Save-As Syndrome." You list 10 straight items in Games-RPG-Fantasy-D&D-Accessories or something, then forget to make a category change when you list a Panzer Blitz.

I catch most of my goofs within 12 hours, though ... :)
