*I don't own all of these fashions NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it. Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page. Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists. If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

I don't believe this fashion was featured on the cartoon.
