Phew! Well another year has gone, a few more ‘laughter lines’ have appeared and we’re another year wiser… yeah right!
So much went down over 2018 that we couldn’t dare to talk about it all, from people rejoining the team (yay!), building our very own cinema and games room in the office (double yay!), to a whoooole heap of exclusive goodies we got to work on and get on the site. What a year!
As looking back to the past is pretty much our jobs! We thought we would take a quick peep at some of our best and most memorable products from 2018. Enjoy!
It all started with a mouse…and 90 years later, we still can’t get enough of Disney’s beloved Mickey! Mickey Mouse officially made his big screen debut in 1928’s Steamboat Willie and fast became Disney’s mascot and most-loved cartoon character. This year we marked Mickey’s landmark 90th birthday with a playful collection of Disney goodies – and oh boy, did you TruffleShufflers celebrate along with us! From snapping up classic jewellery to timeless tees; beauty treats to fashion-forward bags from the likes of Loungefly and Hype, Disney fans showed their love for the iconic mascot in style. Get ready for more magical mousey additions in 2019!
We were gearing up for the return of Mary Poppins for what felt like ages, super excited about the new movie and getting all cosy and nostalgic for the 60s original. A total Disney dream, our supercalifragilisticexpialidocious collection of tees, homewares and gifts are truly magical, featuring all the best movie moments and classic feel-good quotes. You’ve been loving the fact you can make like Mary with a replica brolly and bag or drink your tea (with a spoonful of sugar) in a stylish MP mug or teacup!
This Christmas we found ourselves in a wonderful Winter Moominland! Our snowy scene jumper set hearts a flutter, featuring lovebirds Snorkmaiden and Moomintroll looking utterly adorable and it was love at first sight for this sell-out festive knit. The ultimate Christmas fantasy, our a-MAZE-ing Labyrinth fair isle jumper was retro knitting perfection! With the classic Bowie power mullet, Ludo and (our fave) the Worm starring on this wintery winner, any Labyrinth fan appreciated that everything we did, we did for you. Our minds are thick with wonderous ideas for another magnificent Christmas Jumpers collection next year, so keep your eyes peeled for the best, most unique Chrissy jumps, the world has seen in Autumn/Winter 2019.
Geronimo! This year saw the arrival of our first exclusive Wallace & Gromit collection. Pure Aardman gold, we were blown away by Feathers McGraw, Shaun The Sheep and the dynamic duo, Wallace and his trusty sidekick Gromit. Our tees, totes, mugs and tea towels zoomed out of our warehouse like a rocket blasting off to a cheesy moon! By ‘eck, what a cracking year for Wallace and Gromit. Watch this space, there’s plenty more to come in 2019!
It may have been 2018 but here at TruffleShuffle the 90s definitely still ruled! You guys couldn’t get enough of our classic pink Polly Pocket bag – and with its sweet heart shape and amazing printed lining inspired by Polly’s pad, we don’t blame you! Along with some dreamy additions to the Polly Pocket collection like our shell-shaped aqua satchel, purple bow-finish bag and some pretty pastel socks, Polly was definitely the no.1 lady this year.
