About Thing 1 Thing 2

"The Cat in the Hat," that is where they are at — the madcap adventures of Dr. Seuss' Cat and his two cohorts, Thing 1 and Thing 2, fill the charming children's book about what happens when Mother is away and bored children ignore the voice of reason. While the fish warns of the dangers of the Cat, Sally and her brother ignore him and let the Cat in the door. Once he releases Thing 1 and Thing 2, disaster after disaster follows. Yet it all turns out fine; the Cat cleans the house and repairs the mess just before Mother walks back inside. Since 1957, "The Cat in the Hat" has sold more than 10 million copies and been translated into 12 languages, including Braille. The mischievous tiny twins, Thing 1 and Thing 2, have captured the imaginations of children and adults, generating a wide variety of products, from T-shirts to Thing 1 and Thing 2 plush toys. The reliable sellers on eBay provide a myriad of listings featuring everything from Thing 1 and Thing 2 wigs for Halloween costumes to matching red onesies, shirts, and hoodies for twins or BBFs to sport around town while emulating the mischief generated by the Things.
