Friends Top Trumps

Friends Top Trumps is packed full of fun moments you’ll remember from the hit show that is as popular with teenagers today as it was with their parents all those years ago. Our teenage testers are big Friends fans and loved playing this limited edition game. They enjoyed recalling classic episodes and judging how strong they might be in the categories of Laughter, Friendship, Antics, OH-MY-GOD as well as an overall rating. The teens thought it would also appeal to those who don’t watch the show too as you don’t need any knowledge of Friends to take part. Their favourite card? The one where no one’s ready, of course!

Super Sparrow Flask Bottles

Our teens tested these flask water bottles from Super Sparrow available in 350ml, 500ml and 750ml sizes. They loved the biggest ones for keeping water cool during summer garden camping but they also keep drinks hot too. The teens liked the range of appealing colours and thought the wide design was easier for holding. Most importantly, the fact that they are made of stainless steel means there’s a little less plastic in the world.
