The women of “The Golden Girls” are the absolute queens of throwing shade. So it seems fitting that these sassy ladies would expertly provide shade for your car, too.

The Golden Girls Windshield Sun Shade Visor is sold online at retailers including Amazon ($29.99), Target ($29.99) and Walmart ($25.60). The way it’s designed, the sun blocker has Dorothy in the driver’s seat while Sophia is in the front passenger’s seat and Rose and Blanche are in the back.


The collapsible and easy-to-store shade is advertised as fitting most cars and trucks.

The popular television show, which gave us 180 glorious episodes running from 1985 to 1992, has been enjoying a second wave of fandom, thanks in part to Hulu making all seven seasons available to stream.

Thanks to the renewed interest, the comedic sitcom has garnered new fans, and with that has come a whole lot of merchandise.

Last fall, Target quickly sold out of Golden Girl Halloween costumes. These Golden Girls-themed prayer candles are being sold on Etsy, and we think they’re a great way to say “thank you for being a friend.” There was even a Golden Girls-themed cruise, with stopovers in Key West and Cozumel.

Now, as warmer weather approaches, you can use this dense vinyl Golden Girls car shade to keep temps inside your car in check on sunny days.

Of course, if you absolutely hate getting into a scorching hot car on a sunny day, there are a few more ways to cool your car quickly. Aside from parking in the shade, you can crank up the fan and open the rear windows for 10 to 20 seconds to help push out hot air.

But a collapsible vinyl shade helps, too. And can you just imagine how funny it would be to see this windshield shade in a parking lot among a sea of boring silver car shades?
