We’ve Come Up Trumps With Our Cool New Card Games!

Top Trump Cards

Ever stuck for retro gifts for that retro kid in your life? Well, these made me smile – memories of Top Trumps in the playground in the 1980s came flooding back…

If you’ve never heard of Top Trumps, where have you been? It’s a card game. Each card contains a list of numerical data, and the aim of the game is to compare these values in order to try to trump and win your opponents card. Back in the day it was all about pitting the latest sports cars, ships, lorries, or tanks against each other. But nowadays the range is MASSIVE, and not restricted to mini-petrolheads. You can play this classic game with everything from DC Superheroes and Transformers, Disney Princesses or Spongebob right the way through to Moshi Monsters!!

So, even in this digital age kids (big or small) can put down their PSP’s and ditch their DS’s in favour of a good old fashioned (sorry I mean retro) card game now in stock!!

We’re LE-GOing Crazy Over This Amazing The Goonies Concept!

Have you ever seen such a glorious thing? No we love a good LEGO session, whether it’s building our dream modern style muticoloured house, making a towers as much as possible before running out of bricks or the cat knocks it over (more likely that one). No growing up with this toy, one things we admittedly never thought of was combining this amazing and amazingly simple toy with our all-time favourite retro 80s flicks…The Goonies.

Thankfully someone just did! Yep a fan has submitted this concept design to the people of LEGO to ponder over. The idea is to perhaps celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic films in 2015…we know…how old do you feel now! EEEEP! Take the tour….

The project, by a user named Lyonsblood, features sets called Fratelli Fracas and Skeleton Scare based on moments from the film.
“In 2015, the Goonies will be 30 years old, so what better time than now to start a Cuusoo campaign to reignite LEGO’s interest in this franchise in time for the celebration” said Lyonsblood.  “With the success of the Back to the Future set, and Ghostbusters equally riding high in the Cuusoo charts, there’s definately enough interest in retro movies from the eighties.”

With little LEGO figures of the characters we all know and love, we’re so excited to see this become a reality and would be one of the first to put our name down for a set. We can’t help but feel this is 28 years too late though :/ Having this as a kid would have been the must-have set to get. Well….we can still pretend anways.

Check out the set’s LEGO page HERE and give them your support so this can become a reality!

What do you think? Any other classic 80s flicks you’d like to see get the LEGO treatment too? Shout them out below.

TruffleShuffle Buyers Look of the Month!

Well, Autumn is well and truly here. We can’t fight it so we will have to just learn to live with it! Personally I actually love this time of year, a chance to snuggle up in cosy jumpers drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows, it’s all about comfort!

With the 90’s revisited this season, all over catwalks and the high street and as channeled by the girl of the moment Cara Delevingne, this has to be where the look for the ladies get’s its inspiration this month!

This amazing Burger Jumper by Mr Gugu & Miss Go as seen on Cara herself is not only fun and quirky, it’s also super toasty for those chilly Autumn evenings!

To complete this look, these amazing Mom Jeans from Topshop are just perfect! They would also look great teamed with one of our awesome ladies tees from cult favourite, Local Heroes.

For the guys and continuing the 90s theme, this super duper cool Public Enemy tshirt, paired with some funky printed Benetton Chinos.

I also have to give a little secret mention… Christmas Jumpers, have you got yours yet?
