Folks line up in person and online for 'Stranger Things' hoodie

Wilcox found the vintage sweatshirt online while hunting for inspiration and was "delighted" when the Science Museum of Minnesota brought back the design because of Dustin.

Considering that the "Stranger Things" gang members are zealous young scientists, we think it is safe to say that they would be excited about their contribution to the museum's funding.

It was back up again by 11 a.m.

Members of the media are invited to the Science Museum between 8 and 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 7 to get photos/footage of Brontosaurus apparel sales.

According to the news release from the museum, staff thought about selling the attire after receiving several calls, emails and social media posts from fans admiring them. The museum will sell hoodies, like the one worn by character Dustin Henderson in Stranger Things, as well as crewnecks and t-shirts.

Following season one, in which Dustin is pictured wearing the vintage sweater, the museum chose to capitalize on the free press and manufacture a reproduction, which they're selling for $37 United States dollars.


But despite the all-out chaos - including a few snippy Facebook comments from eager prospective buyers - the Star Tribune reports the museum had sold a whopping $400,000 worth of merchandise by Tuesday afternoon.

"I really loved the Brontosaurus for Dustin, so we bought the original".

The purple hoodie, worn in the October 27 episode by the character Dustin, features an image of a long-necked dinosaur and reads Brontosaurus, "Thunder Lizard".

Public relations director at the Science Museum of Minnesota, Kim Ramsden, added: "For us, we're just relishing this opportunity to be connected to the popular show, especially one that has characters that are interested in science".

A selection of six items - all featuring the dinosaur print and offered in both adult and child sizes - are available for purchase at the museum's website, and range in price from $14.95 to $36.95.
