Whatever you’re up to this weekend, just remember… if not now… when?

Can we get a REEEWIND? TruffleShuffle’s 2018 Review…

Now that's whatTruffleShuffle call... twenty-eighteen!

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!

 

Disney - MICKEY THE TRUE ORIGINAL - 90 YearsIt 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!

Wallace and Gromit - Est. 1989Geronimo! 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.
