    True! Does it count as product placement if it's your own company??

    I think so; there's a rule about children's media in America that they can't advertise real-world products directly on kids' shows, which is why Yu=Gi-Oh cards had to be changed for the dub so they wouldn't match the products exactly. (Note that this doesn't apply to movies, where the cards are game-accurate. That's also why the Powerpuff Girls episode about the collector couldn't have any real merchandise!) So it's probably not exactly the same, but it's still neat!

    If they had used an image of Stefan with his actual eye colour and not the brown eyes, I would happily wear this LINK

    ugh why did they even do that. This goes in the book of worse decisions from LazyTown.

    Re: LazyTown Merchandise

    All the Robbie merch and character art seems to have brown eyes for whatever reason, including the comics. Maybe they tried to compromise between blue and gray, decided that the gray looked more brown (it's had to tell from a distance!) or they didn't want/need blue paint for 2 tiny spots when his hair was already dark brown. I'm curious about the reasoning behind it too! Just another LazyTown mystery to solve.

    This honestly has always bugged me haha! I have no clue why they decided to make Robbie's eyes brown in all photos and merchandise. I've always wondered it myself

    Re: LazyTown Merchandise

    My guess is grey eyes are harder to render/paint. I found a thing on DeviantArt wondering about it too! https://www.deviantart.com/gwendolyn...eyes-118376570

    LazyTown Merchandise

    I always thought that it was to "Americanize" Robbie. Like how Sportacus is more tan/has darker features, and is a superhero instead of an elf. Maybe dark eyes were supposed to make him more imposing somehow? I dunno, it's the most minute and annoying thing. Bruh, the (intended) audience isn't going to care or notice, so why bother??

    Re: LazyTown Merchandise

    Sportacus is still an elf in the American version, albeit implied more than stated (Robbie calls him a blue elf/blue sports elf a few times and the tips of his ears are always covered).

    I found a LazyTown Chutes and Ladders/Snakes and Ladders board game!

    It always annoyed me that both Magnus and Stefan have light eyes, but Sportacus got to keep the blue eyes and Robbie, my favourite, got messed around with, lol.
    I swear I even remember Stefan himself saying he noticed and was puzzled by the change.

    I did want to buy the shirt someone made to raise funds for Stefan's go fund me, but the design was so great that every time I checked it was always sold out.

    Why do all the Sportacus action figures' heads look like Robbie disguised as Sportacus? XD

    I'm now very tempted to get another Sportacus action figure and have a little Sportafake moment on my shelf (^_^)

    I had to see the 2 figures side by side as I was worried for a moment that they just added different clothes to the same basic figure, but thankfully they didn't, especially in regards to Stefan's fantastic ears

    I found another LazyTown board game, Crystal Challenge! According to the instruction manual Robbie went super hardcore villain mode and set bombs everywhere at random. XD
