Friends is one of the most popular shows in TV history. Even today, fifteen years since it ended, this 1990s sitcom remains one of the most re-watched and binge-worthy shows out there. You'd be hard-pressed to find a person who has never seen at least one episode of Friends. On the other hand, finding fans of the show should be a relatively easy task.
If you happen to be a fan of the show or know someone who is, then you've come to the right place. Today, we're looking at the items every fan of the show should have in their home. From board games to home decor, here are the top ten things only real Friends fans own.
10 FUNKO POP TELEVISION: FRIENDS - SUPERHERO PHEOBE COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
In the season eight episode “The One with the Halloween Party”, Monica and Chandler throw a costume party at their apartment and things inevitably get crazy. Monica, who attends as Catwoman, gets Chandler a pink rabbit costume, which he hates until Ross shows up in an even more ridiculous “Spud-nik” costume. Rachel comes as a pregnant woman wearing a dress she soon won’t be able to fit in, Joey dresses as Chandler, and Phoebe comes as Supergirl.
If you loved the idea of Lisa Kudrow as the Girl of Steel, then this awesome Funko Pop! Superhero Phoebe Figure should have a place on your shelf.
9 FRIENDS CENTRAL PERK LOGO T-SHIRT
Aside from Monica’s apartment, the six friends spent most of their time at the nearby coffee house, Central Perk. The first episode opens with the friends, minus Ross and Rachel, sitting on the iconic orange couch discussing Monica's love life. Eventually, Ross joins them, uttering his depressing "hi", and moments later Rachel storms in clad in a wet wedding dress.
The coffee house was THE hangout spot for friends. Rachel and Joey worked there, Phoebe performed there, Chandler referenced it in the show’s bittersweet last line, and it is one of the most famous TV hangouts. Any Friends fan needs at least one Central Perk item like this awesome T-shirt.
8 FRIENDS CENTRAL PERK CERAMIC LATTE COFFEE MUG
One of the most iconic aspects about the infamous Central Perk, aside from the orange couch, are the oversized coffee mugs. Everyone noticed them, and an annoyed Janice even pointed out the ridiculous giant mugs. But, as ridiculous as it sounds to drink 24 oz of coffee, we can’t help but love those damn giant mugs. Sure, we’re more likely to eat soup out of it than actually drink coffee, but we still want one.
This official, licensed, oversized Central Perk mug is a must-have for any fan of Friends. The mug is made using durable ceramic with a large easy-grip handle, and it’s dishwasher and microwave safe.
7 FRIENDS TRIVIAL PURSUIT QUIZ GAME - BITESIZE EDITION
A true Friends fan has probably seen every single episode of the show countless times, can quote and reenact scenes, knows the lyrics to Phoebe’s hit song “Smelly Cat”, and can tell you which season a screenshot is taken from just by looking at a character’s hairstyle. We’re all pretty sure in our knowledge of the show, but putting it to a test certainly can’t hurt.
If you and your friends can’t decide who’s the biggest Friends fan among you, the Friends Trivial Pursuit game could help you finally settle the dispute. The game contains 600 questions based on all the classic moments we love!
6 FRIENDS EDITION MONOPOLY
A fun night with friends would be incomplete without this awesome Friends-themed Monopoly. The board is customized with classic moments and episodes from the show as properties you can buy, a Central Park Tab field, and Apartment 19 and 20 cards. The features a print with all kinds of Friends references, like the turkey with glasses, Phoebe's cab, and Joey and Chandler's chairs.
And the best part, you get to play as the token that represents your favorite friend. There’s a dinosaur for Ross, a shirt and a vest for Chandler, a purse for Rachel, a pizza for Joey, a chef’s hat for Monica, and a guitar for Phoebe.
5 FUNKO POP TELEVISION: FRIENDS - 80'S HAIR CHANDLER COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
In one of the funniest Friends episodes “The One with All the Thanksgivings”, the group reminisces about the Thanksgivings of years past. In one of the flashbacks to the 1987 Thanksgiving at the Geller house, Chandler and Ross arrive from college with fresh hairstyles – Ross sporting an afro and a mustache, while Chandler flaunts his unforgettable “Flock of Seagulls” hairdo.
Funko decided that Chandler’s crazy hairstyle needed to be immortalized – which we totally agree with, by the way – and made this hilarious Funko Pop! Figure of the Sarcasm King at his most stylish. This is a must-buy for any Friends fan, and especially a Chandler Bing fan.
4 FRIENDS THINGS I LEARNED (CENTRAL PERK MENU) POSTER
Over the course of ten seasons, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, and Joey made us laugh, cry, and even taught us a thing or two about life. In a way, the show itself was our friend – there when we needed a good laugh, some comfort, and an escape from whatever troubled us. We all have our favorite moments, one-liners, quotes, and lessons.
This 36-inch-long poster, designed to look like the Central Perk menu, features a list of all the things Friends has taught us over the years. For example, the importance of reading make-up letters all the way through, front and back, and how to properly carry a couch up the stairs.
3 FRIENDS: THE COMPLETE SERIES

2 FUNKO POP TELEVISION: FRIENDS - JOEY IN CHANDLER'S CLOTHES COLLECTIBLE FIGURE
The season three episode “The One Where No One’s Ready” has been hailed as the funniest Friends episode of all time. This hilarious bottle episode centers on Ross’s anxiety as he waits for his friends to get ready for a function they need to attend that evening. Finding no one ready, Ross starts to lose his patience as his friends take their sweet time getting dressed, distracted by ex-boyfriends, couch cushions, and clothes-stealing roommates.
The funniest bit happens when Joey walks into Monica’s apartment wearing all of Chandler’s clothes saying the now-iconic line “could I BE wearing any more clothes?” If this is one of your favorite Friends moments then you must add this Funko Pop! Joey Figure to your collection.
