It is I, lovable, furry old Grover!
Watching Sesame Street is hands down one of my favorite childhood memories. I loved it so much, that I remember when we would go on long car rides, and I asked my mom the typical, “Are we there yet? How much longer?”, she would reply by referencing episode lengths, instead of giving an actual amount of time. “We’ll be there in half a Sesame Street,” or “One Sesame Street.” And I would hunker back and replay an entire episode in my head. These were the olden days, folks. Before iPads. The world was in black & white and I had to hike six miles to school through blindly snowstorms full of tension so thick you could cut it with a knife. Wait. I mixed some metaphors there.
In any case, here’s a lovable, furry old Grover icon. He’s one of the few characters I can do a passable vocal imitation of. Which comes in very handy when reading “There’s A Monster at the End of This Book” to my kids. My dad used to read it to me in a Grover voice, and now I read it them in a Grover voice.
And yes, before you ask, the download file contains both the colored Grover icon above, and a solid black Grover icon.

It’s a Game Boy icon!
Of all the tech I’ve ever owned, I think I cherished my original Game Boy the most. I took that thing EVERYWHERE. When the screen got too scratched to see through, I pried the plastic shield off so I was just looking at the glass below. I still have that Game Boy. I remember studying the pixel art and sprites in all of my games intently, and recreating them on my Mac.
Game Boy is a registered trademark of Nintendo.
Now you can fight for truth, justice, and the American way… oh, wait. Different guy. In any case, here’s an icon worthy of a super soldier! Grab Captain America’s Shield icon and… um… save the day. Or the night. Or the afternoon.
If I were a superhero, I think that would be my battle cry:
Here I come to save the AFTERNOON!
Here are some more details about Captain America’s shield.
Captain America is trademark Marvel Comics.
A lovely dress icon perfect for a summer evening. But, let’s be honest, it’s a horrible choice to wear in the dead of winter. I mean, imagine wearing this dress while climbing a mountain in January. That’s just poor planning. It’s also probably a poor choice to wear swimming. You could get away with it at a cocktail party. But definitely not while jumping hurdles. Or alligator wrestling. Yes to a graduation. No to slip n’ slide.
In any case, whatever you choose to do, pop into this dress icon, and you’ll look fantastic.
Introducing the Symbolicons Scale Icon. Because it’s a static image, the scale icon is perfect for your weightloss needs. No matter how heavy you get, the icon always shows the same weight. You can now eat whatever you want, whenever you want. Seriously. Stuff yourself with candy and sweets. Carbo-load at every meal. Take two chocolate chip pancakes, spread them with peanut butter, sprinkle on some M&Ms, wrap them in a tortilla, deep fry the tortilla, spread marshmallow fluff on top, add sprinkles, put it all in a blender with eggs, pour into a baking pan, bake, cover the resulting cake with cream cheese frosting, and then stuff it all down your throat.
I know. It sounds delicious. Scale icon FTW.
Bud-um, bud-um, bud-um. Your heart sounds good, internet. How do I know, you ask? Well, I’ve been listening to it with my new stethoscope icon.
(Also, sorry for the background image.)
It’s a syringe icon! I made the tip on this one nice and round, so you won’t get hurt when being stuck with it. Oh, wait. That’s not right. Oops. My suggestion is to definitely NOT use this syringe icon to draw blood. For starters, it’s made of pixels. For, um, seconders, the blunt force of it will be horribly, horribly, painful.
