Hey folks, ran across this awesome red Tintin snowsuit. I couldn't find anything online, wondering if anyone could shed some light on its value. Here's a few pics: http://imgur.com/a/Q8iWP#2

I'm afraid that looks very much like an unofficial item. Did you buy it in Nepal?

Actually, I think that “Studios Aventures” (as per the lable) might have been a concession in some Belgian/ French clothes shops or department stores, so it’s just possible that this is in fact a genuine item.

I’ve never actually seen merchandise from the company before; however there was a period when quite a few of their shop-fittings appeared to be being sold on eBay - the most familiar one being a plinth with a section of a globe coming out of it, and figures of Tintin and Snowy running across the top of it, and the legend “Studio Aventures” written around the plinth.

I don’t know if there is any market for their merchandise (Not wishing to be rude, but I don’t think the quality of this design is very nice); it may be fairly rare, but you’d need to find someone who really wanted it to make much money.

Ah, I didn't look at the label, but I think you're right. I remember the “Studios Aventures” merchandise in the 1980s.

I also remember that in the 1980s there was a lot of 'knock off' Tintin gear made in Nepal (which is why I asked if it was from Nepal), but the quality was very poor at the time so it was easy to distinguish it from the legitimate merchandise.

Thanks for the insight guys. It was a pretty random find to be honest so any kind of info is appreciated. I guess I'll stash this relic back in the closet.

There is a Studio Adventures denim jacket currently on eBay as I type. On the back of the jacket there is an image of Tintin and Snowy from Cigars of the Pharaoh with the cigars logo (the circle with the line through it) behind them. The date '1934' is split up either side of the cigars logo. 19 on one side and 34 on the other.

The label inside the jacket says: Studio Adventures © Herge - 1993 Tintin licensing
