Your New Happy Place: Tickles SM North EDSA

Tickles has just opened their newest store in SM North EDSA!  The store is designed with a retro-European circus theme, that is tied all around the store from the lighted marquee sign in front with the Tickles brand lighted up, to the fonts used for all the signs, to some of the merchandise being sold and even on their paper bags.  If they played "circus" music in the store, I might have believed that I have been transported to a scene back in time. 

The store is packed with gift items, novelties, quirks and curiosities that appeal to 3 generations of customers.  Let's face it, who doesn't know Tickles?  They have been established since 1979, and now have morphed into products with designs that are of this generation but also kept some of the nostalgia that they are best known for.  While time has made things more modern, and with it are consumer tastes, there are some things that are universal - these are things that makes us laugh, happy and smile.  Somehow, during my recent visit at Tickles, they did pull through with the happy vibe along with the nostalgia that comes with it.

Come and explore, what I've found in the store!



They have gigantic food pillows like this with the roll-up candy design.  They also have designs of hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, tacos, fried chicken, french fries, cupcakes, macarons, chocolate chip cookies and so much more!  You do have a lot of options for whatever design motifs that you want to create.

My husband, Mickey asked me to pose as if drinking this huge bottle of a pro-biotic drink because I like drinking this stuff before going to sleep.  I always wondered why they never came out with bigger sized bottles of this.  Now, they have, in a huge pillow form, haha!



These are called the "boy friend" pillow and the "girl friend" pillow.  Both have an arm each so it's best for hugging when sleeping.  These are life-size as well.


Okay guys, we all know that mother's day is just around the corner.  Earn major brownie points with mom with this "I love mom" pillow.  This will surely give a smile to her face each time she sees it.


You may have noticed my pom pom hair band?  I super love it!


I first saw Khloe Kardashian wear these and thought, "that is cute!".  Now I have them too!  Yay!



I can just imagine, if you're a kid staring at this wall of cute animals and character plushies.  You must have a hard time finding a favorite.  There are so many to choose from!


See what I mean?  Haha!
Thanks Mickey for this paparazzi shot, you perfectly caught me "in my element".


For dog and cat lovers, there is also a dedicated area for our fine furry pals.  There are funny  magazine inspired pillows named "Vanity Fur" and "Catmopolitan".  Mugs with your favorite dog breed, pouches and even warning signs for intruders.


I love the quality of these puppy plushies


Mickey is ready to beat Bobby Flay at the grill!  These sturdy aprons come with adjustable clasps on the neck and on the waist for the perfect fit.

Love these coin banks with the labels - "girls just wanna have funds", "travel fund", "our wedding fund", and there is one that is quite unique, it's for "fart fines" as a penalty for gassy friends.


These hanging alphabet letters would be nice for children's rooms.  Simply hang their initials or spell out their name, it would be equally nice in their rooms.


Love these alphabet pillows, especially the ones on the left.  They're so colorful!  Add a pop of color to your sofa or accent chair with these.  They also have alphabet mugs and patches.


The designs are never ordinary for these pencil and eraser sets, tattoo gel pens, book marks, cellphone holders,passport holder, notebooks, note pads, sticky notes and paper clips.


Funny signs and super long curvy pencils


Not your ordinary eye and dust masks


Love these note pads!


These are faux books.  When you open the front cover, it's actually a secret box where you can keep keys or valuables discreetly hidden on a bookshelf.


Food-inspired head bands and carry pouches

   
Bouncy balls by the counter in different designs.  They have eyeballs, translucent balls, marble-like and crystal-like balls as well.


For the little ones,there are also these fun animal bop-its


I saw this huge bear by the entrance and couldn't help but take a photo with it.  It's almost as tall as me, if not as tall as me.  It's so soft and cuddly!
