We’re back again with another look at just how old we all are the best films which are reaching a mighty milestone and turning a cool 30 this year! As we all know, 30 is the new 20, right?

Always ones for a spot of nostalgia, we thought we would take a quick trip down memory lane and remember some pretty classic films that will be turning a cool 30 years old in 2018! as scary as some of these are. Let’s go!

Big

Now THIS is a classic! Starring a young Tom Hanks, this late 80s comedy gem saw told the tale of a boy (Josh) who simply dreams of being.. well.. big. After making a wish on a Zoltar machine, Josh wakes up in the body of an adult but with his young mind. Certainly one of our top picks from the body/mind swap saga which has been a Hollywood staple for decades, we love getting to watch Tom be a big kid and of course… the iconic piano scene!

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Even just thinking about this films put a smile on our faces. Sooo many classic moments and each time you watch it, you’ll see more jokes you missed the last time. Part of the Police squad and Airplane generation of films, The Naked Gun continued to bring us visual gags think and fast and is certainly a classic in our eyes.

The Naked Gun TShirts

Die Hard

Speaking of classics, do they get much more classic thank Die Hard? We sure don’t think so! Packed with action and nostalgic memories, this Bruce Willis (John McClane) and Alan Rickman (Hans Gruber) movie legend has certainly done the rounds with TV appearances each week and a permanent home in most movie aficionado collection. Can we just remind you of some of the classic quotes? “Yippie-Ki-Yay, Motherf**ker!”, “Welcome to the party, pal!”, “Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs.”. Classics!

Die Hard Merchandise

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

The late 80s and 90s were such a magical time for top films with animated characters. That amazing mix of of real life and the animated world was like a dream come true to young TruffleShufflers. Based on Gary K. Wolf’s 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, this animated gem came at a perfect time for us and this will always have a place in our movie great list.

Beetlejuice

Have we mentioned the world ‘classic’ yet? Well.. it’s certainly one word that comes to mind when we think Beetlejuice! Packed with Halloween flavour nicely topped off with some healthy doses of comedy, this 80s Tim Burton favourite always has us in stitches.

Beetlejuice TShirts

The Land Before Time

Okay now this one is hard to believe! We always forget just how long this film came out because it’s always so fresh in our minds and look amazing! Still does actually. With a dream team like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, and Frank Marshall on the production pulse, it’s not hard to see why this is such a fantastic story and really well put together. A childhood classic for many of us here, we hope kids these days (are we sounding old already?) will also get to experience and enjoy this little animated beauty for years to come.

Twins

When an experiment to produce the perfect child has some… unforeseen side effects, two brothers are born. One seemingly has everything, brains, strength, charm and personality, while the other has perhaps been a little short changed and is now a womaniser and small-time crook. Can you guess which one is which? We love the seemingly odd plot which many films of this era seemed to have. Film makers wern’t afraid to go a little weird and make fun of themselves. Being silly and cheesy was a huge trait back then and taking films too seriously wasn’t a must.

Rambo 3

It’s safe to say, by 1988 the world was pretty much in love with the Rambo series. Kick-starting in 1982 with a budget of $171 million, Rambo was born. Fast-forward to the late 80s, we were waiting on Rambo 3 which with a more modest $65 million budget wasn’t as high profile but still has all us Rambo nuts chewing our pens to get stuck back into the action. Packed with muscles and guns, it was the teenage movie dream we craved.

Rambo TShirts

Crocodile Dundee 2

For those who don’t know, Mick Dundee is a bit of a hero for us. Rugged, fearless and certainly not afraid to say what he thinks, we totally LOVED the Crocodile Dundee films and the second instalment was no exception.

Rain Man

Last in our list but certainly not least, Rain Man. Winner of Academy Award for Best Picture, Rain Man started with a modest budget of $75 million and was possibly a risk of a plot but one that had a lot of people talking and we certainly still love today.

So there you have them!Feeling old yet? We sure are! But hey, we knew we grew up with the coolest films right?

Which of these are you favourite? Of perhaps we missed something totally cool off the list? Let us know with a comment below.

With soooo many cool fitness brands out there, once thing we’ve spotted is that not too many of them really allow you to show off your personality. I mean, a shirt with a brand logo isn’t saying much in the way of ‘hey, I’m kinda cool and sure ain’t afraid to stand out from the crowd.’

Whenever we’ve been out running through the local parks or getting some actual use out of our gym memberships, we do it in one of our tshirts and have had some pretty cool experiences as a result.
It’s amazing how many fantastic comments we’ve all had from fellow shakers and movers about our selected designs. Such a great way to break the ice, break the mould and really show off your individuality.

Phew! Now all the excitement and chaos is over, we thought we would take a few minutes to sit back, grab a cuppa and reflect on the last year to see what our highlights were and what you guys we’re loving on the site.

So! With that in mind, let’s dive in and take a peep at our best of the best from 2017!

Pink Polly Pocket Heart Shaped Cross Body Bag

Truly the icing on the TruffleShuffle cake in 2017 was our amazing Polly Pocket Bags! When we first released these to the wild, the world went wild as we had countless features, articles and posts about them. We could barely keep up!
Reaching far corners of the world, it seems this was just what was missing from many 90s kids collections and the demand was so far beyond what we ever expected. It didn’t take long for this little pink number to hit our top spot which is where it stayed for the rest of the year.

Labyrinth The Board Game by River Horse

In the age of smartphones, an app for everything and even kettles you can control via WiFi (the dream, right?), we were totally blown away with the reaction of this stunning 80s-tastic Labyrinth Board Game. Despite Labyrinth being a commercial flop when it was launched, it quickly reached cult status and earned a permanent place in many 80s kids movie collections.
We love that people are still rocking board games and think they are the best way to really bring everyone together and enjoy a bit of nostalgic fun.

Disney Beauty And The Beast Chip Mug

With the live action box office smash hit being released last year, it truly was the year of Beauty and the Beast. With soooo many fantastic products being created around this modern adaptation, there was was real chance for all fans of this iconic Disney take to get stuck into so many more goodies inspired by their favourte characters. Chip was really a headline act for us with sooo many people rushing to snap up our Chip cups. I mean… what a perfect mix of style and function right?!
We loved the details and finishing touches on this little chap, and apparently so many many others making this one of our top treats of 2017!

Men’s Black Stormtrooper And Darth Vader Selfie Star Wars T-Shirt from Chunk

So there’s no denying 2017 was a big year for Star Wars. With everyone building up buzz through the year for the long-awaited Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the hunger for amazing Star Wars goodies has never been so big with many fans of the classics getting stuck into the new generation, and many new fans of the latest Disney films loving the wealth of amazing merchandise available for their new favourite franchise.
Clearly, this fun and funky design from Chunk featuring Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper taking some time for a selfie struck a chord with soo many fans snapping this up. One of our personal faves here too so we can’t blame them!

Men’s Mr Grumpy I Had Fun Once T-Shirt

Okay… maybe not everyone had a blast in 2017. How do we know this? Well Mr Grumpy was sure busy this year with a whole heap of tshirt fans snapping up this exclusive design to either let the world know their current mood, or pass on to someone else to perhaps ‘send a message’. Either way this was still a front-runner through the year and from what we can see will continue to be a hit with Mr Men Little Miss fans.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Letter Wallet

Despite the first book being launched back in 1997, and the last film hitting our screens in 2011, there is still a HUGE buzz around Harry Potter which only seems to be growing stronger by the year. With a seemly unquenchable thirst for creative and new Harry Potter goodies that fans can really snatch up like a golden snitch, our Hogwarts Letter Wallet seemed to really cast a spell as it was a huge hit from the moment it joined us on the site and it’s not hard to see why.
With amazing detail and practicality, it’s the perfect mix of ‘oh I really like that’ and ‘oh and can actually really use this!’.

Harry Potter Marauders Map Heat Change Mug

Once again Harry Potter taking the main stage with this super fun and useful Heat Change mug. Getting to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy the Marauders Map coming to life just like in the books and movies, bliss with a biscuit right?

Women’s Grey Stranger Things Inspired Upside Down T-Shirt

Wondering what all the noise was and what possibly clogged up the local internet connection once a week on the dot? It was without a doubt the return of Stranger Things with the launch of season two on Netflix. Just like season one, we were treated to a wealth of action, suspense, amazing acting and characters, all cloaked in a warm glow of 80s nostalgia with amazing wardrobe, games and gadgets. Pretty much our perfect show right? Well… as it turns out not just us as it took the globe by storm and many of you wanted to share your passion for this hit with some of our exclusive TShirts and Sweaters. Thank you so much!

Men’s Pac-Man Skyscraper T-Shirt

when two icons collide… you end up with one amazing design which has really hit it big in 2017. For a long time now, this vintage Pac-Man design has been a real favourite with fans and has once again made it in our big hitters list. Available from just £14.99 too, this design speak volumes and is just about as recognisable as they come. Great way to pay homage to the iconic arcade game and raise a few smiles along the way.

So there you have them folks! 2017 officially done but the fun sure isn’t over! We will be here to guide you through 2018 with even more amazing finds and designs that will always keep you entertained.

Plenty of coolness planned so watch this space peeps!
