Tickles had been our favorite stopping point in Trinoma. Whenever we go to this mall, we stop by in Tickles to check out their newest stuff on their shelves, because they are all so cute. My girls and I have fun touching and playing with their quirky items and sometimes, we buy gift items for my daughters’ friends at school. The good news is, they now opened their flagship store at SM North Edsa. We can now conveniently go to their branch where it’s nearer to my daughter’s school at SM North.
I remember I’ve encountered the Tickles brand very long time ago, with a Tickles bag which one of my aunts had. It was brown, simple but pretty and I was curious where she had bought it. It was from Tickles. The name itself is tickling (Tickles) which is just so apt to their novelty items. They tickle our minds and make us smile all the time.
As I found out, Tickles had been in the business since 1979 and its guiding principle is Happiness. Now, it explains why we are always looking forward to visiting Tickles. It’s because the shop is for all ages. Although the store caters to the current generation, the store has ample stocks of nostalgic items which both young and old will love. Start it with the circus theme of the shop, with the brown color and the side walls looking like vanity mirror of the 70s era.
The bigger, better-rebranded Tickles debuted its new retro European circus theme at its first flagship store in SM Megamall which opened in September 2016. That’s why when you go to any of their branches, you’ll be aware of the circus feel, complete with the train going round and round on its tracks at the top of the store.
Tickles designs and manufactures many of their gift items and their focus is to be 100% Tickles-branded. Look at the photos I got when my eldest and I went to Tickles SM North. You will surely enjoy their shop not only because of their affordable gift items but also because of their novelty items you can use to decor your home, prettify your scrapbooks or your child’s school projects, etcetera etcetera. Everything is Instagrammable and the fun things are just endless in Tickles!
