Did you notice Dustin wearing a cool Brontosaurus hoodie in the first episode of “Stranger Things 2“? The vintage sweatshirt is now a social media sensation, which prompted the Science Museum of Minnesota to bring the hoodie back to its store.
The sweatshirt first appeared at the Science Museum of Minnesota’s gift shop in the early 1980s and fan-favorite character Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo) sported the hoodie on this season of the Netflix series. Since then, the museum has received phone calls, e-mails, and social media posts from fans requesting the shirt be brought back to life. Unauthorized versions started appearing online, but now the museum is offering its own official merchandise.
The “Thunder Lizard” merchandise, which includes hoodies, crew necks, and t-shirts, is available in limited quantities at the museum’s Explore Store in St. Paul and on the Science Museum of Minnesota website. Prices range from $15 – $40.
Proceeds support the museum’s state-wide education program and global research programs.
