In 1993, Tim Burton gave the world The Nightmare Before Christmas, a stop-motion animated musical dark fantasy Halloween-Christmas film. It is all about Jack Skellington, the King of Halloween Town, who discovers Christmas Town. The iconic songs, the zany characters, the holiday celebrations… this movie has gone down as a classic, so fans should show off their love for it in as many ways as possible!
Down below, there are 10 The Nightmare Before Christmas-themed items - everything from mugs and games to toys and clothing items. In short, these are the things that every real fans of this flick should own.
10 Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton is known for his creepy films, and Disney is known for fun family friendly ones. The Nightmare Before Christmas combines both of these worlds by telling the story of Jack Skellington. Is it a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas one?
Who cares -- it can be enjoyed all year long with this product! Watch it at parties, watch it when bored, and/or watch it when the holidays roll around. The fact that fans can own this flick is cool enough, but this Blu-ray is the sing-along edition, so get ready to belt out all those spooky and spectacular Danny Elfman songs over and over.
9 Funko Pop! Movie Moment: Nightmare Before Christmas - Jack and Sally On The Hill Collectible Figure
Pop! figurines from Funko are all the rage, so it makes sense that versions from The Nightmare Before Christmas would exist. This particular one right here shows off the two main characters of this movie - Jack Skellington and Sally. They are 3 ¾ inches tall and come in a window display box that protects them.
The best part of this collectible though, is the setting; this piece of entertainment is known for its twisted landscape, which gives a sort of Wonderland vibe. And that iconic swirly hill is featured here, with these love birds standing on it in their signature outfits!
8 Nightmare Before Christmas 25 Years Collector's Chess Set
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this movie, a collector’s chess set was released… and this is it. It contains 16 custom sculpted Team Jack Skellington pieces and 16 custom sculpt Team Oogie Boogie pieces, for the ultimate dark-versus-light game.
Fans who already enjoy this board game will be able to take it up a notch with this version, and those who have not already learned how to play chess can now do so with a Tim Burton twist! Besides providing lots of fun, this item is also just a really beautiful piece to add to any The Nightmare Before Christmas collection.
7 Monopoly Nightmare Before Christmas 25 Years Board Game
Another popular board game came out to honor 25 years of this film: Monopoly! Here, a custom game board features familiar locations like Dr. Finkelstein’s Laboratory, Sally’s Alley, Oogie Boogie’s Casino and Jack’s Tower, each with custom Title Deed cards and costs.
This colorful board also serves as the backdrop for the collectible tokens, which are as follows: Jack Skellington’s Skull, Sally, the Mayor’s Hearse, Oogie Boogie, Zombie Duck and Evil Teddy. Picking out the pieces that players move around is always the best part of this game, and that just got even better with this The Nightmare Before Christmas version!
6 Operation The Nightmare Before Christmas 25th Anniversary Board Game
We suggest throwing a The Nightmare Before Christmas party, because there are more themed board games from which to choose! In Operation, people can pretend to be surgeons and carefully remove body parts from a buzzing board.
With this anniversary game, players get to operate on Oogie Boogie, in order to try and remove a snake, a spider, dice, worms, a needle & thread, a roulette wheel, a card deck, keys, bones, a scorpion, a bat and and a bug. As usual, though, don’t let those tweezers touch the board (which, in this case, looks like his familiar burlap sack ensemble).
5 Funko Mopeez: The Nightmare Before Christmas - Dr. Finkelstein Plush
In The Nightmare Before Christmas, Dr. Finkelstein, a resident of Halloween Town, created Sally (so he is a pretty big deal, for those who didn’t know or remember).
The pale skin, the duck-like mouth, the skullcap, the motorized wheelchair… all of these traits and other characteristics found in this mad scientist can now be enjoyed through this Funko plush! Kids can pretend to build Sally or even build Jewel, the wife that Dr. Finkelstein creates for himself at the end of this flick. And older fans can display this product proudly on a shelf, surrounded by other Tim Burton memorabilia.
4 Disney Zero Figural Mug - The Nightmare Before Christmas
Another classic character from this movie is Zero, Jack Skellington's dog. This fan favorite can greet people every morning, when this coffee mug is owned! A coffee cup collection can never be too large, since what a cup o’ Joe is enjoyed out of can help set the tone of an entire day.
On a similar note, there is no such thing as a collection that is too big, when it shows off products that honor The Nightmare Before Christmas. So add this mug to the cart and to both collections, in order to drink coffee/tea in style and in order to shine some love and some light on this lovable dog.
3 Funko Pop Disney: Nightmare Before Christmas - Oogie Boogie with Bugs Collectible Figure
Up above, we highlighted a Funko Pop! collectible figurine that had Jack and Sally on it. While that one was more lighthearted and romantic - like the portions of The Nightmare Before Christmas that feature those two characters - this one is different. This figure shows off Oogie Boogie with bugs!
See, some people - Gasp! - are not fans of Tim Burton’s work, as they find it too frightening or too twisted. But fans who can’t get enough of that must have this Oogie Boogie, with its creepy crawly and dirty surface. Yes, it is the perfect gift for those who enjoy this film and other thrilling ones like it.
2 Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Cozy Slipper Socks
These slipper socks are super soft, so they keep feet nice and toasty and cozy. They have a faux fur lining, so they provide comfort all day long and all night long. They have a rubber tread, so they are not slippery on the bottom.
Oh, and they have Jack Skellington’s face on them! A clothing item is a great way to show off a fandom, and these slipper socks are almost too good to be true. Imagine curling up on the couch, in order to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas yet again, while wearing these cute and comfy items!
1 The Nightmare Before Christmas Soundtrack
After watching this iconic hit for the millionth time, fans can then enjoy the soundtrack! “This Is Halloween”, “What's This?” and “Oogie Boogie's Song” are just a few of the well-known tracks from this movie. In 1985, Tim Burton invited composer Danny Elfman to write the score for Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, and since then, Elfman has been known for his collaborations with Burton.
He provided the singing voice for Jack Skellington (and the voice for Bonejangles in Corpse Bride and the voices of the Oompa-Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), helping to create and bring to life songs we know and love.
