When Golden Girls debuted on Sept. 14, 1985, it was an instant hit. The series lasted for seven seasons and spawned a spin-off called Golden Palace.

The premise was unique. The sitcom revolved around the lives of Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia, four older women sharing a house in Miami. They captivated audiences with their hilarious quips about dating, aging, and cheesecake, but also dealt with subjects that were taboo at the time, including gay marriage.

The show may have premiered 30 years ago, but thanks to reruns on three different cable networks, its spirit lives on. Now, thanks to Sam Hatmaker, a fan of Legos and the Golden Girls, we can continue the love and drama in the form of a Lego set. In April, the set received the 10,000 votes needed to move on the review stage. If approved, the product goes into development, then eventually hits stores. This process can takes months or years, so while we wait, here are seven other Golden Girls products to for you to love and cherish:

1) This slightly terrifying tumbler

2) Golden Girls-inspired lip balm
