10 SONIC MANIA PLUS

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON GAMESTOP

While there were people that said "Sonic was never good," SEGA was prepared to challenge them. By hiring fan creators, the result was Sonic Mania, which is regarded as one of the best games in the franchise. The game was later given a physical release in the form of Sonic Mania Plus with more modes, new characters, and extra goodies.

The physical version comes with a reversible SEGA Genesis cover and an art book featuring all sorts of great sketches for the game. Through and through, Sonic Mania Plus is a game made by Sonic fans for Sonic fans. It doesn't get better than this.

9 SONIC FUNKO POP!

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

With Sonic being such an important character to gaming history, it makes sense that he would have a Funko Pop! figure to his name. While there used to be some less-than-favorable versions of the Sonic Funko Pop! (they removed the whites around his eyes), the quality has gotten much better since then.

This Sonic Funko Pop! features the blue blur in his iconic design. The difference is that he is also holding a green Chaos Emerald. Because this figure has a different pose than most Funko Pops, it will sit nicely on a shelf, even if someone already has a few Sonic figures.

8 DIAMOND SELECT TOYS TAILS STATUE

SEE THE PRICE GAMESTOP

Miles "Tails" Prower is the number-two character in Sonic the Hedgehog. Introduced in the second game, Tails is the brilliant sidekick to the blue blur. This character has a great impact on the franchise, making him a beloved fox in the fans' eyes.

This statue from Diamond Select Toys is a celebration of Tails. It features Tails flying toward a Chaos Emerald as if he were going to grab it. The stand also has some neat details, like a circular build reminiscent of the classic games. All the details on the Tails figure itself are on point, making it a great-looking statue in total.

7 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: CRASH COURSE

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON GAMESTOP

In most Sonic the Hedgehog games, Dr. Eggman is up to his old tricks and is trying to get the Chaos Emeralds for himself. Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course takes that concept and brings it into a comprehensive board game that's easy for people of all ages to play. Players choose Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, or Eggman as they race through Green Hill Zone to acquire the Chaos Emeralds first.

Each character has their own unique abilities that affect the game, and all figures are represented with 3D models to make it much more of a collector's item. Just about anyone can play this simple game.

6 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 25TH ANNIVERSARY ART BOOK

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Sonic the Hedgehog has been around for quite some time. Over 25 years, we've seen this attitude-fueled hedgehog defending the woodland creatures and taking down aggressive robots. Celebrate the history of Sonic with the Official Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Art Book.

This book contains concept art, image work, and a history lesson in all things relating to Sonic. It's a massive book that's stylized with the minimalist colors that made the Genesis games such a hit. It comes in a gorgeous hardcover that makes it one of the best collector's items for Sonic fans anywhere. Every fan will want one on their shelf.

5 SONIC ATHLETIC SOCKS

SEE THE PRICE GAMESTOP

Sonic is known for being the fastest thing around, running faster than just about anyone else on the planet. That's what makes these athletic socks such a perfect fit. With Sonic being a runner, it only makes sense that he would have his own line of athletic socks. That said, a Sonic fan doesn't need to be an athlete to wear these.

They're bound to look good with plenty of other outfits. They're an inexpensive way to show one's respect and love for the franchise. The socks are blue and come with a white design of the titular hedgehog himself done in the Genesis style.

4 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG HEAT-CHANGING MUG

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Heat-changing mugs are all the rage, giving people a satisfying cup to drink from with their morning coffee or afternoon tea. This Sonic the Hedgehog heat-changing mug is no different, featuring a gorgeous design all the way around. When cold, the mug features Sonic's eyes, some rings, and the ground.

Pour in a hot drink, and it lights up to reveal a scene straight from the first level in most games: Green Hill Zone. Sonic is running in the foreground with the iconic landscape and rings in the background. It also has the Sonic the Hedgehog logo on the inside for greater authenticity.

3 KNUCKLES FIGURE

SEE THE PRICE GAMESTOP

There are many characters iconic to the Sonic franchise, and one of them is Knuckles the Echidna. This character, introduced in Sonic & Knuckles, was a rival of sorts for the blue blur before becoming an ally and staple of the series.

Any Sonic fan is going to have a heart for Knuckles as well, which is why this figure makes a great gift. It's part of a series of figures, meaning that there are more to collect. Despite being so inexpensive, the figure is well-designed and comes with a base from Green Hill Zone and includes a Chaos Emerald at his feet.

2 TEAM SONIC RACING

SEE THE PRICE GAMESTOP BEST BUY

For those that were fans of Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing, there is a new game on the horizon just for the Sonic fans. Team Sonic Racing had a delay and concerned some fans after its reveal, but the reveal of customization, music, and more has given fans a reason to be excited about this game.

There are plenty of Sonic characters to choose from and plenty of new cars to use in the game. The tracks are not only based on classic Sonic areas, but they have all sorts of twists to them. The music recorded for the game also looks to be phenomenal so far, just as any Sonic score should.

1 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG DICE RUSH

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Dice games are a lot of relaxing fun. Players just roll some dice and work with the results they're given. That format has made its way to the Sonic fanbase with Sonic the Hedgehog Dice Rush. In this game, players will be competing to build the best level. Players will each roll their dice and grab the appropriate pieces from 2D Sonic levels.

They have to build their own stages, keeping in mind how the point system works. Some assets will reward them with more points while others will take away. This game is based on the classic series, featuring classic artwork and more.
