Furby Goes Pop!

The must-have toy of 1998, the Furby was a roaring success. Over 40 million were sold in their first three years, a real sensation! The cute, owl/hamster like creature was a robotic toy which started life speaking Furbish and slowly learned English over time (a bit like a human).  He’s been the star of our very own selection of Furby T-Shirts and has now been brought bang up to date by Furby Living who has reimagined the loveable balls of fluff onto the covers of some of our favourite pop albums, some of them recent as well as older classics.  Enjoy, and make sure to visit Furby Living to see even more!

Reppin’ the old skool with Fydelity

As many of you know, I have the awesome role of being Truffleshuffle’s guest blogger. I’ve got a lotta love for them and of course EVERYTHING they sell from t-shirts to retro accessories.

When they asked me to review their new range of bum bags… I was a little surprised. Bum bags?! When did they come back into fashion? Were they even in fashion? I know we all used to have one back in the day, whether people admit it or not.

It was when I saw a photo of Rihanna rocking one, I thought hey if she can rock it so can I. But even Rihanna’s bum bag wasn’t as cool as the one Truffleshuffle sent me. See I knew there would be something more to it than just being a bum bag. This is Truffleshuffle after all. Retro and cool…

As cool as her bum bag is I bet it doesn’t play music…ah yeah!

The bum bag that they sent me is from the brand ‘Fydelity‘ which Truffleshuffle.co.uk stock. Like I said these aren’t just any bum bags- with built in amplified speakers so you can connect your mp3/iPod/smartphone to it. It’s a boombox in a bag!

It is literally too cool. There are quite a few colours to choose from including a leopard print one (!) but I resisted and went for a grey one.


With its retro design I couldn’t wait to wear it around my waist and blast some tunes. Just the design itself is definitely cooler than the bum bag I had back in the 90′s. I had to wait a few days to test it out as the bum bag takes 3 AAA batteries…and in our house we seemed to have millions of AA batteries but no AAA! Raging.

But when I finally got some batteries, I got my iPod Nano (which never leaves my side) and connected it to it. It was so easy to do. The first song that I played through the bag was “Rapper’s delight” by The Sugarhill Gang. ”I said a hip hop, a hippie, a hippie to the hip hip hop“… I just had to blast something old skool on it!

I had family around on the weekend and as 80′s children I had to show them this. When they saw it was a boombox they were amazed. I took it out in the garden and was still impressed with the quality of the sound. As you can see from the pictures, I was getting too into the old skool zone that I grabbed my Adidas Originals jacket. Not sure if it goes with the leopard print!

I can’t wait to take it with me on holiday and future trips to the park. Love it. Better stock up on those AAA batteries though!

What do you think of the boombox bum bag? What song would you blast if you had one?
