The first item up for grabs on September 22 is the “Robin Sparkles Pink Boom Box” from Season Two featured in her infamous “Let’s Go to the Mall” music video.
““How I Met Your Mother” has always belonged to the fans,” said show creator Carter Bays. “You guys rooted the show on, made it a part of your life, and spent every Monday night with us for nearly a decade. We will always be grateful for that. As a way of saying thanks, we’d like to give you the opportunity for a piece of “How I Met Your Mother” to actually, physically belong to you. From all of us at “HIMYM,” thanks for watching, and good luck!”
Show creator Craig Thomas added, “We hope that you treasure and enjoy these beloved pieces of “HIMYM’s” soul, or that you at least don’t sell them on eBay.”
Launching today, the HIMYMProps.com website allows fans to revisit some of the most recognizable and memorable items from the first two seasons through images, shareable memes and interviews with prop master David Baker and costume designer Reiko Kurumada.
