Find Shopping Happiness at Novelty Store Tickles SM North EDSA

Posted on

If you want to find yourself in a place that will make you feel whimsical, laugh and ooh and ahh then Tickles is the place to be. A one of a kind novelty store, Tickles has opened its flagship store at SM North EDSA.

Tickles has been giving us quirky and fun knickknacks since the 80’s and with happiness being their guiding principle they have been successful at customers leaving with smiles on their faces. Tickles now designs and manufactures many of their gift items. Their goal is to be 100% self-branded producing wacky food-themed plushies and witty pillows, to funny and quirky accessories.

With the age of millenials upon us the Tickles Team has rebranded and debuted its retro European circus theme catering to the current generation without losing the nostalgia. All the new Tickles branches (Power Plant Mall, TriNoma, UP Town Center, Robinson’s Place Manila) have the circus theme with the rest of the stores to be updated soon.

The kids and I perused the store looking for items we wanted to get. With all the items they have you’re sure to find something for yourself, your friends and your family.

As I looked around the store I could see many things that I wanted. Some were just too cute for words like there pillows. I loved their unicorn pillows and the food plushies are so much fun. They even have a boyfriend pillow which was funny at first but looked like a good idea after awhile!

Jael was excited about all the stuffed toys and plushies. If he had his way he would have taken them all home. He did bring home a plushie though. Just scroll all the way down to see what he got!

I had my eye on items that would work for our home. Bastian was pushing me to get this Welcome Aboard item but the practical side of me is putting off getting it. Our home is still in the works. It would totally look great in my office though! I’m taking you home soon!

Great Deals and Steals at the Toy Kingdom Warehouse Sale 2016

Posted on

Every year I look forward to this sale! The Toy Kingdom Warehouse Sale is the best place to get awesome deals on branded toys. I’ve been here a few times now and it never disappoints!

If you’re a budget conscious mommy like me but also want quality toys then you have to make sure to stop by this sale. Check out my tips below!

14581441_1321597364526540_6195591203729756574_n

Here are some tips I can share from my experience at having been to there sales.

  1. The best tip I can give you is to COME EARLY! Be there as soon as the doors to the mall open. After just 30-45 minutes the place fills up and by lunch it’s jam packed.
  2. GET YOUR HANDS ON A PUSH CART. As you go through the sale and see something that you really like (because you will definitely see many things you’ll like) put it in your cart. It’ll be too difficult to go back and retrieve it. Before you head to the counter just go through your items and keep the ones you really want.
  3. MAKE A LIST. It’s overwhelming to be confronted with all these great deals. You’ll feel like you need to get everything. Bring a list of your inaanaks, nephews, nieces, etc so you can choose what toys to give. Being its a sale you’ll be able to save and even get Buy 1 Take 1 Deals.
  4. INSPECT EVERY ITEM. At this sale I was excited to see the underwear that I had gotten Jael at the Baby Company sale. It was a set of DC character briefs which were 7 pieces for Php300, an obvious steal. However, I didn’t bother checking the size of each brief and when I got home that’s when I saw I had gotten small sizes. So, best check those sizes!
  5. BRING ALCOHOL/SANITIZER. You’ll be picking up a lot of things especially when scrutinizing the prices and state of the toys so expect to get your hands dirty.
  6. Lastly, BRING YOUR SMAC card becasue for sure you’ll be purchasing in the thousands and those are a waste of points if you don’t bring your card.
