10 PAWNEE SEAL MUG

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Pawnee, Indiana is where everything happens in Parks and Recreation. We follow the Parks Department coordinator, Leslie Knope, as she strives to make the town a better place. With the series taking place in the government, we see a lot of the iconic imagery that defines Pawnee.

One of those images is the Pawnee seal, which is every bit as silly and ridiculous as you might imagine. Featuring someone standing over a bison they shot and another chopping down trees, there's nothing that says Pawnee quite like people destroying the landscape for their own personal gain. You know what we're talking about.

9 PAWNEE: THE GREATEST TOWN IN AMERICA

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Leslie Knope is dedicated to the town of Pawnee, which makes her one of the show's most endearing characters. However, with all sorts of weird history and laughable events plaguing the town, it's hard to not be amused by her dedication. Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America is a book that takes readers through the history of Pawnee.

The catch is that the book was styled as if it were written, proofread, and spell checked by Leslie Knope herself, which leads to all sorts of hilarious pages. Learn about the greatest events in Pawnee history, including the raccoon infestation all in this book.

8 PARKS AND RECREATION: THE COMPLETE SERIES

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Odds are that if you're a fan of Parks and Recreation, you binged the series on Netflix. For those that love the show, it might be better to have a hard copy so they'll never need to fear that the show will go away. Parks and Recreation: The Complete Series contains every episode of the show in one, simple package.

Watch Leslie Knope's journey from the goofy Deputy Director to someone running for Pawnee City Council. Meet a great cast of characters each with their own development all centered around the lovely town of Pawnee, Indiana. Then, shed tears when it all comes to an end.

7 SWANSON PYRAMID OF GREATNESS

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

There is no higher standard of being a man than Ron Swanson. This stoic detractor of the government knows what it means to be masculine and devised his own way of teaching others how to do the same. In the show, he created his Swanson Pyramid of Greatness to coach many young minds how to be just like him.

Now, fans of the show can have their own Swanson Pyramid and hang it up on their wall. It has all the important notes you remember from the show. With items like cabins, meat, and security on the list, you can cover all your bases.

6 LIL' SEBASTIAN T-SHIRT

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Any Parks and Recreation fan will know Lil' Sebastian. This adorable pony was the greatest figure in Pawnee's history. Whenever the horse took a step, everyone in the town had to know about it. There was such a craze over this pony that there were even shirts made for people who saw the horse.

You can now show your love for Lil' Sebastian by getting a shirt as well. Having a picture of the pony along with the words "I met Lil' Sebastian at the Pawnee Harvest Festival," you can remember the days when that beloved horse was still around.

5 RON SWANSON BACON AND EGGS MUG

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Ron Swanson is so dedicated to his own principles that he has some of the best quotes in the show. When traveling to a diner he was desperately craving bacon and eggs. When the waiter asked what he wanted, he said, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have."

He meant every word. If you ever feel that way in the mornings, then you can have a mug with this iconic quote printed on it. Featuring the show's logo as well as a graphic of Ron Swanson, this the ultimate Swanson mug that is just one step to becoming one yourself.

4 LIL' SEBASTIAN FUNKO POP!

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Parks and Recreation was popular enough to get its own Funko Pop! figures. However, instead of getting figures of April Ludgate or Ann Perkins, we'd recommend the Lil' Sebastian Funko Pop!. This pony is one of the most iconic characters in the show, garnering such a buzz in the town.

When he passed away, Andy Dwyer created the famous "10,000 Candles in the Wind" song. While Lil' Sebastian may be gone, he lives in the hearts of fans of the show. With this Funko Pop!, the beloved horse can be immortalized on your display shelf. It's the pinnacle of the Parks and Rec Funko Pop! line anyway.

3 MOUSE RAT SOCKS

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Andy Dwyer went through quite the journey from his entry in Parks and Recreation. A musician, he was part of a rock and roll band that went through many different names. However, the name that stuck for the longest time was Mouse Rat.

Mouse Rat played at all sorts of gigs, having great songs and albums for the people of Pawnee to listen to. If you're a fan of Mouse Rat, then you can show your love to Andy's band by getting these socks featuring the band's logo. These crew socks are guaranteed to be warm and stylish for the wearer.

2 JJ'S DINER NOTEBOOK

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

JJ's Diner is an important part of Parks and Recreation. Leslie Knope's favorite place to eat, the people there know her by name, and she is famous for constantly ordering waffles. With this diner known for its waffles specifically (though there are plenty of other reasons why it's so popular), it's hard to not want to show appreciation for it.

The next time you take notes, you can do it in this JJ's Diner Notebook, which features the restaurant's logo on the front. Parks and Rec fans are sure to appreciate this notebook, as it's exactly the kind of thing Leslie Knope would use.

1 LESLIE KNOPE QUOTE POSTER

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Leslie Knope is the main character of Parks and Rec, and many of the greatest quotes in the show come from her. Whether it be one of her oddly endearing compliments toward Ann or her ridiculous analogies, there's always something funny in her mind. If you want to not only show your love for the show but your love for Leslie, then this poster is just the thing.

It contains some of Leslie's greatest quotes from the show organized like a political campaign poster, which is all too perfect. There are many reasons why she is one of the show's best characters, and they're all on this poster.
