News Around the Kingdom: Introducing the TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS collection

By Alex Garcia

Today we’re happy to bring you all the TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS collection. From coffee mugs to jigsaw puzzles, comic fans can find a little something for everyone!

“Folks want to do good things and be unselfish until it comes down to that moment for them to do it. This is even more so true with kids. I also like when the entire family finds itself in the strip.” -TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS Creator Bill Bettwy

Bill Bettwy’s Take It From The Tinkersons is a timely comic strip about the hopes and dreams of a modern family working together to keep their heads above today’s choppy economic waters. Ted and Tiff Tinkerson are a happily married couple with two children: A charmingly naive son, Tillman, and a moody tween daughter, Tweetie. And you can’t leave out Tubby, their overweight but lovable dog.

Nothing comes easily in life, especially for the Tinkersons. Despite Tiff’s financial concerns, Ted’s unrealized ambitions, Tillman’s aversion to school work, and Tweetie’s hourly mood swings, the Tinkersons know what truly matters: in the rat race of life, family comes first.

“Ted is a lot like me in the fact that he never knows what he wants from the store but hopes somebody brings him something back from the store.” -TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS Creator Bill Bettwy

“This was the first one out of the gate. The Tinkersons launched on April Fool’s day, which seemed appropriate as this strip was about a Saturday but published on a Monday.” 


This TAKE IT FROM THE TINKERSONS Jigsaw Puzzle is the perfect wholesome activity for friends and family.

“It’s really neat to think that someone besides my mom will be wearing Tinkersons merch.  This merch is a super fun way to lead into the 10 year anniversary of the Take it from the Tinkersons coming up in April.”
