What’s blue, spiky and superfast?

Sonic the Hedgehog of course! We’ve been big fans of the gaming heavyweight since he made his debut in 1991. Since then, he’s dominated consoles and run rings round his competition. He’s got a dedicated fanbase, loads of spinoffs, a live-action movie based on him and even a star on the Walk of Game!

Sonic’s design and influences

The little blue legend was created by SEGA as a rival to Nintendo’s Mario. He was originally a rabbit that could throw things with its ears but morphed into a hedgehog during the design process (he was also briefly known as ‘Mr Needlemouse’ – probs a good thing that one didn’t stick!) He had a ton of influences as well. His rad shoes took inspo from Michael Jackson’s boots on the Bad album cover (in fact, MJ was a massive Sonic fan), the big FC inspired the colour of his sneaks, and his ‘can-do’ attitude was based on Bill Clinton! Also, in case you hadn’t noticed, hedgehogs aren’t usually blue – his colour was selected to match the iconic SEGA logo.

Sonic the Hedgehog gifts

Sonic is one of those instantly recognisable characters that takes us straight back to our gaming youth. He’s been around for over 30 years (looking good though Sonic!) and in tribute to his iconic status, we’ve pulled together a selection of awesome Sonic the Hedgehog gifts. Choose from accessories, drinkware and games featuring the blue blur. Perfect presents for any fans of retro gaming.
