Exploding Cigarette Loads

After a hard day’s studying, let them lie back and get lost in the fabulous display of lights, guaranteed to chill out the most highly strung of teens.


LED Word Clock

Not a big fan of numbers? This clock is unlike any other. It tells the time like people do. With words. Its clever design means that the time is illuminated in words rather than numbers, in five minute increments. And as if that awesomeness wasn’t enough, it looks like a piece of art work, too. What more could a wordy teen ask for?


Liquid Ass

Yep, it’s gross! Which is why teenagers will love it! A squirt of this foul smelling fart spray and then just grab the popcorn, sit back, and watch the looks, the suspicions, and the nose pinching which ensues! And it’s discreet (well, not the smell, obviously) so no one will know it was you.

One for the younger teens, this is a timeless gag which still works today. Not many people could resist seeing a 100 dollar bill lying around. But imagine their face as, just when they reach out their hand to grab it, it is snatched away! Great fun, over and over again.


No Tear Toilet Paper

Toilet humor – it’s everywhere. But we had to include this! The toilet paper that just won’t tear, no matter how hard they try. It’s a shame you won’t be able to see their faces as they panic, but you’ll be able to imagine, and that’s enough!


Non Stop Singing Birthday Card

Old Book Pillow Classics

For the book-loving teen, these pillows are the perfect gift for their bedrooms.

Prices Vary

Prank Sonogram Picture

Take the fake pregnancy test one step further with a fake 2D sonogram picture! Imagine the shock on Mom or Dad’s face when confronted with ‘proof’ of their future Grandchild! Not one for the feint hearted, and will probably earn a lifetime of grounding. But it’d be so worth it!

Prices Vary

The devil makes work for idle hands, as they say. But their hands will never be idle with this addictive kinetic sand. They can spend hours moulding it into all kinds of shapes, creations, and sculptures, and yet with one touch the sand will collapse into nothing but…well, sand. Fascinating, relaxing, and a little bit magical.


Sound Effect Machine

Another classic gag gift, but still provides hours of fun. With 16 different sound effects, the right sound effect can be inserted into any given situation at the touch of a button. Canned laughter, clapping, or a well-timed wolf-whistle are all at your fingertips.


Stage Blood

What better way to prank Mom than with fake blood? Moms flap and fuss when one of their angels is hurt, so garner some sympathy while making her think you’ve cut yourself. Just be prepared to lose the sympathy vote pretty quickly when she realizes she’s been pranked.


Star Wars 3D Deco Lights

Does your teen have Star Wars coming out of their ears? Now they can have it coming out of their walls, too! These fantastic wall lights come with a sticker which, when placed on the wall makes the light look as if the head is coming through from the Dark Side. In a choice of characters, from Darth Vader to Yoda, it’s every fan’s dream (or nightmare).


Stepped in Doo

How to make a girl mad in one easy step. Place this self-adhesive ‘squashed’ dog poop under her shoe, and when she goes to put them on she will immediately think she has stepped in a pile of doody and ruined her favorite shoe! At least she won’t be able to chase after you with just one shoe on!


Stick on Coin

Few people can resist picking up a shiny coin from the floor or table. It’s hilarious to watch them try and try, not realizing it’s stuck down. A classic trick, this is probably best suited to a younger teen who wants to scam their mates.


Stink Bombs

Oh the fun kids have had with these things over the years. Potent, stomach turning, evacuate-the-room disgusting, little vials of grossness! Clear a room, a shop aisle, or even a party with one or two of these little beauties. Naughty, but lots of fun!


Tattoo Sleeve

Your teenager could have so much fun going back to college after the Holidays, brandishing a brand new full sleeve of ink! Mom and Dad will get kudos for ‘allowing’ him to go under the needle, and he will look bad ass for going through the pain!


The Pooter

Yep, when you have teens you just can’t escape the farts! And this little hand held device is so realistic it will have everyone asking ‘who dropped one?’ It forces air into the palm of the hand, replicating a butt wobbling poot. Great fun.

USB Squirming Tentacle

Hours spent at the computer can be boring, right? So here’s a fun (if useless) way to liven it up a little bit.

Show us a girl who doesn’t like chocolate, and we’ll show you a boy (although most boys love it too, secretly). So let them take their favorite treat into the shower with them, with this home made chocolate sugar scrub. Using only three ingredients, this scrub is, actually, entirely edible. But eating it won’t be as effective as using it in the shower on your skin!

Leather Bracelets for Men

These leather bracelets for me look a lot more expensive than they are, and they can be personalized as much or as little as you like. All you need is a pyrography set (very inexpensive) and some leather strips, along with a couple of other items, and you can make some impressive, unique items for the boys, and the men.

Round Beach Blanket

It’s a well-known fact that teenage boys and girls like to lounge around at the pool or the beach. This home-made gift is killing two birds with one stone, as not only will they have their own, unique, round beach towel, but they will also stop taking yours!

Decision Cube Pillow

Remember those decision-making 8-balls? This pillow is similar, but instead of being an 8-ball it’s like big dice that has decisions written on each side.

Slave Bracelet
