Abstract: As a complementary method of behavior research, cultural products research has played an important role in cultural psychology. In this article, we reviewed accumulating cultural products research in cultural psychology and illustrated the special utility of cultural products in revealing characteristics of culture and human psychology from both between and within-culture perspectives. Finally, the implications of cultural products research to current Chinese psychology research were discussed.
