With soooo much coming our way (500 films and over 350 series with 7,500 episodes, plus 26 exclusive original shows and movies), we thought we would help guide you through the jungle of cool with some of our very top picks. Let’s jump in!
It’s official guys and gals, the Summer good times have now passed and it is now time to settle in for cosy nights with a good movie or book, and a hot cup of coco while rocking some of our awesome pyjamas!
Yep, despite being totally in Summer zone from the moment the sun finally peeped back out from the cloud, we’ve also been gearing up in preparation to take on the long winter months in style with our exciting range of funky pyjamas.
With so many to pick from, we thought we would pick out some of our recent faves which we’re always counting the hours until we can next put them on and cosy up. Take a peep…
Who better to cosy up with then the world’s favourite lazy kitty, Pusheen! Featuring the fabulous feline doing what she does best…. sleeping, this stunning set comes with matching bottoms which are complete with an all over Pusheen print. More Pusheen than you can shake a stick it!
What better way to kick back and put up your hooves than in our tail-waggingly cool My Little Pony pyjamas?! Featuring a ringer style tshirt design and legging style all over print bottoms, we’re sure these will be the perfect winter warmer for all you MLP fans in the land.
How is it Disney Princesses always look their best? If like them (and certainly not like us) you always manage to start your day looking effortlessly awesome, maybe you should snap up this fan set of PJs featuring Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Belle and Snow White. Tagging selfies with #IWokeUpLikeThis is optional, but strongly recommended when wearing this.
Full of character and always with a spring in his step… if this sounds like you on a Sunday morning, maybe cut down on the coffee. Bambi is one of those Disney characters that the older we get, the more we really cherish his playful and happy outlook on life and want to grasp onto that with all our might. Banish the stresses of modern life and relive those childhood mornings with your Disney tape collection by sporting this super cute PJs set.
Are you the superhero of the house? Wear your credentials in style and in supreme comfort with our Wonder Women PJs set. Featuring the princess of the Amazons herself looking as glam as ever, we love the matching bottoms with the arms of the tshirt. A real complete set.
If we looked half as adorable as Minnie Mouse when we woke up we’d be over the moon! This adorable set of Disney PJ’s is a real throw-back to younger days, and would make a great gift from a Mickey to their Minnie.
For all these designs and so much more, click on over to our complete range of nightwear & underwear to find your perfect style. See you there!
We recently posted this picture from The Lion King on our TruffleShuffle.com Facebook page and the huge response we got from you lovely lot about all the other tear jerking sad scenes that affected your childhood really got us thinking!
Perhaps kids movies shouldn’t include such storylines – we are clearly all still emotionally scarred from whitenessing some of these moments right?
Some old, some new (a lot of them Disney!) – all intended as family friendly entertainment – well, we beg to differ…….! We even got a little tearful just researching for this feature 🙁
Looking back over all of your comments, we decided to put together a little rundown of the kids films that affected you guys the most, so as voted by you – get the tissues ready……..
10. The Fox And The Hound (when the old lady leaves little Tod in the woods!)
9. The Land Before Time (when Littlefoot’s mother dies)
8. The NeverEnding Story (when Artax the horse drowns in the Swamp Of Sadness)
7. Toy Story 2 (when Jessie sings ‘When She Loved Me’)
6. Marley And Me (not much explanation needed here!)
4. My Girl (when Vada finds out Thomas J has died)
3. Dumbo (when Dumbo’s mother is locked up and sings ‘Baby Mine’)
2. The Lion King (when Simba’s dad dies)
1. Up (the Carl & Ellie montage)
We can’t believe none of you mentioned the closing scene in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, that film gets us every time! That film was actually shot in chronological sequence so when they’re saying goodbye to E.T. at the end, they really are saying goodbye 🙁
I guess the happy times outweigh the good times and we shouldn’t dwell on the sad stuff – I’m sure there is a life message hidden in there somewhere and we will see it once the tears have cleared…..!
Are there any others that you think we have missed and would have put in your top 10?
Mrs Foley’s baby boy! It’s only gone and become the weekend.
So, like a friendly proprietor of fine baked goods. Let us bake for you a cake full of creamy celluloid pleasure, we’ll sprinkle on hundreds and thousands of mega movie moments as the aroma of retro cinematic decadence fills your nostrils. Tasty.
Have a happy retro weekend 🙂

The new tee collection of Chunk T-Shirts has landed at TruffleShuffle. With their humorous take on iconic retro characters and movies, it does make us wonder what the designers there eat for breakfast!! With that in mind, here’s some questions only Chunk Clothing would ask themselves:
– What would the cast of Star Wars look like in their 1977 School Yearbook?
– If you double parked your AT-AT would a parking attendant still clamp it?
– Does Darth Vader do a little DJing ‘on-the-side’?
– What would Mr.T be like if he were a dog?!?!
– Could Alices curiousity for bottles labelled ‘Drink Me’ end in a drink problem?
Well, if you’ve ever asked yourself one or more of these questions then Chunk T-Shirts are DEFINITELY for you…. (And may answer the question!)
