We offer an eclectic collection of innovative and design-led products of quality and offer the best value possible.

Here's how this began back in 2002…

It started quite by accident, while working on the Corx game project, a test-site was required for the bespoke Onlinesales checkout process we use. From studying other online checkout systems it was decided their various faults in terms of customer service needed addressing.

Things such as unnecessary registration forms which had to be completed before you were able to place an order. The hiding of delivery charges until you were at the last page of the checkout. Asking you for unnecessary information before you could discover what the real total cost of your purchase was going to be.

What we have is one of the quickest checkout processes online. Your shopping basket tells you what you've ordered, what the total is and if you're an overseas customer how much the shipping costs will be. Any overseas shipping is based on package weight. If applicable, taxes for your country are deducted here before you commit yourself to parting with any personal information.

The first product was RazorMate, invented by a retired NASA engineer that made razors like new using the process of magnetostriction. The next product was a chewable toothbrush, perhaps you've seen the vending machines in toilets, motorway service stations, but they were not available to purchase online then.

Then came the Avid Razor, with its 4 twin-blade cartridges stored inside cleverly designed handles this was a razor designed by Giorgio Berretti certainly ahead of its time!

The ball started to roll from then on. Product lines from new emerging British design teams such as Suck UK and J-Me were added and the revolutionary Yoropen was greeted with much enthusiasm.

Unique cufflink designs followed by the Original Gourmet Pasta Forks, the Epicare Magic Wand Facial Hair Removal Wand then Stainless Steel Wallets and Würkin' Stiffs® Magnetic Power Stays™.

Following discussions with inventor Bob Norburn, a man responsible for numerous inventions and about to make his appearance on Dragons' Den. Bob was the first person to ever be invited, rather than having to apply, to appear on the programme. He'd spent years, and a fortune in successful patent applications, perfecting the revolutionary Ultra Shave Cream cream. Ultra Shave is unlike any other shaving preparation, not just in the way it's used but also in the benefit to the end user.

All that was need was a management team to bring Ultra Shave to market. Unfortunately the dragons turned him down, after a gruelling battle in the den and then, even more unfortunately, much time and money spent in legal battles with the man given the task (with Bob's investment) of marketing the product.

Few other Dragons' Den appearances have made the same impact as the incredible Tangle Teezer®, as soon as the show was aired Shaun was contacted and Tangle Teezer immediately taken on.

And so our product range grows, nothing's offered that doesn't do what it says it will - and that's your guarantee of satisfaction.

Many customers return time and again, because shopping with us is a friendly experience. Shopping with us is quick, simple and secure. We want you to be delighted when you received your purchase and tell your friends about us.
