TruffleShuffle.com Buyer’s Look Of The Month – September

I get nostalgic pretty much every day working at the Truffle HQ, but can’t help but go a little weak at the knees when new Care Bears merchandise comes in.
I collected the cards, had the cuddly toys, watched the cartoon, had the pencil case, all of it! If they there was tinned spaghetti in the shape of Care Bears (which I expect there most probably was), I’m sure I would have had that too!

So this month’s look is centered around our super cute new vintage print Care Bears t shirt on the popular and uber flattering rolled sleeve boyfriend tee (which has proved a massive hit with you)! I am also loving the current trend for midi skirts (no embarrassing moments on blustery days – phew!) and simply teaming with some classic Converse All Star high tops, you simply can’t go wrong!

And to when you are unwinding after all that shopping, why not take your tea in this super cute Retro Care Bears Mug! Ahhhh…

Our Top Toys Of The 80’s

We can remember the excitement of Christmas Eve as a child like it was yesterday! Being reminded daily of all the wonderful, iconic stuff which made life in the 80’s and 90’s so wonderful, just working here at Truffle Towers.

So here it is, if we were to go back a few decades to the 80’s this would have been our Christmas Wish List.

GLO WORM

Launched in 1982, this little bed buddy let off a gentle glow to help you sleep, so cute!

POUND PUPPIES

These beany, plushy, delights came in their own little cardboard kennel with an adoption certificate (the welfare of the Puppy was very important). I was lucky enough to get one call Beamer!

TRANSFORMERS

With a relentless marketing campaign, it was hard to escape the urge to own a (or a few) Transformers. The Robots in disguise cleverly ‘transformed’ from cars into robots and Kids across the globe took part in battles between the Decepticons and Autobots.

CARE BEARS

If these cute, cuddly Bears enticed you to grab them from the shelves with their Care Bear stare then, like me, you will have fond memories of the sweet toys. Mine was called Cheer bear 🙂

FURBY

Although not strictly an 80’s toy, Furby sales went completely mental in the year 1998. Love them or hate them, they definitely deserve a place in the must have retro toys for kids Xmas wish lists!
