There are few gifts that say “I love you” in a uniquely cute way as this I Choo Choo Choose You Valentines Day Keychain, inspired by The Simpsons.
In the fifteenth episode of Season four of The Simpsons, which aired in February 1993, Lisa noticed that her classmate, Ralph Wiggum hadn’t received anything for Valentine’s day and decided to do something special for him out of pity. So, she gives him a valentine’s card with a train on it saying, “I Choo-Choo-Choose You”. Unfortunately, poor Ralph misinterprets the friendly gesture as a declaration of love from Lisa and spends the rest of the episode pursuing her with affection, much to her dismay. He eventually gets over his infatuation and they remain friends at the end of the episode.
That famous I Choo-Choo-Choose You valentines card, because of how goofy the caption is and the popularity of the Simpsons tv show back then (and even till now), has inspired several merchandise items like exact replica valentine cards and even this particular keychain.
Made from environmentally friendly, high quality stainless steel, and buffed to produce a brilliant shine, the keychain and ring are both environmentally friendly and rust proof. It’s relatively small (5 cm x 1.2 cm) and light enough at 10 grams, that it doesn’t add too much weight to whatever bunch of keys you attach to the key ring.
The keychain comes packaged with a velvet bag which can both act as storage and a cleaning cloth for the keychain, to remove all those fingerprints from its shiny surface. The iconic “I Choo Choo Choose You” phrase is engraved on the broad side of the keychain, along with a tiny locomotive train.
To keep the keychain looking good over time, avoid exposing it to chemicals, sweat or showering with it, and don’t forget to wipe it down with a soft cloth on occasion. For occasions like Valentine’s day, Engagements, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, the I Choo Choo Choose You keychain would make a perfectly cute and thoughtful gift, both for male and female recipients, just like this personalized love story book. Just ensure that if you’re giving it to a friend, they know that it’s a friendly gift, so they don’t end up like poor Ralph Wiggum.
