Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
This post is going to be out of the norm for us here. While we would normally only focus on toys, the sad truth is that Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory license doesn't have many beyond the 18" Willy Wonka doll, and handful of bobbleheads - If you even consider those toys. As such, we thought we'd take a look at the entire front of products that NECA released in 2005 for the highly hyped film.
During 2005, NECA produced a vast array of items. These included the aforementioned 18" figure and bobbleheads (known as Head Knockers), as well as Golden Ticket replicas, nite lites, pillows, tins, and so many more items. It was a mish mash of collectibles that didn't necessarily come together to form one line, yet at the same time left it open for collector's of all varieties. We'd honestly like to know just how well most of these items sold, but probably never will. We can't imagine that for the most part the majority of these items were popular.

This item (below) we actually really like. It's a framed replica of the infamous Golden Ticket along with a wrapper for a Wonka Bar. It really displays nicely on the wall, and is a great conversation piece.

A second version was produced which is encased in plastic. It doesn't include the Wonka Bar wrapper.

Nite Lite Assortment
Plush Wonka Candy Bar Pillows
Plush Wonka Candy Bars
Sadly, the below tins didn't actually include any candy inside of them. They were just metal tins for storing bits and bobs in. Personally, we'd rather have actual candy.
