    First to Review

    Simply put, an absolute corker of a shop.

    This store has been going for as long as I can remember and I'm pleased to say it's going strong.

    Whatever your fancy dress needs, wants and desires you will almost certainly find them in here and at a decent price. Whether it's clothes, wigs, costumes, jokes or games, they're in here.

    Enjoy - as you can't fail to have a good time in here whilst browsing!

    Definately the best joke shop around!

    U Need Us are suppliers of such items as wigs, makeup, tights, balloons, seasonal goods (xmas and halloween outfits namely), gag jokes (tar soap, itching powder, whoopee cushions) and costumes.

    It's a small shop for the number of items it sells, but it works really well and the staff are excellent and willing to help with nay requests!

    Quite possibly the best place to come and get Hallowe'en decorations, or decorations in general. The store is horribly cramped, but everything is neatly organized into just two aisles and there is a heck of a lot of items for sale in such a tiny shop. They sell everything from costumes, masks, balloons, wigs and huge Hallowe'en props to latex body paint. I wanted to construct a ghost for an elaborate decoration one year and found out that they actually sold styrofoam mannequin heads for just £5!

    The shop also sells gags (hot chili mints, itching powder etc), as well as a decent variety of board games. The people who work there are quite friendly but are always inundated with crowds and there's never a proper queue, which can be annoying, but it's worth braving the crowds to get something unique here.

    As well as party decorations including a good selection of banners and balloons among other things, and lots of fancy dress ideas - with dozens of well priced hats to choose from, U need us also sells a great range of games and puzzles etc if your looking for a gift, that's a bit more unusual. Other hidden gems include top quality face paints and small coloured button badges - good if you need a lot for an organised event or for teams.

    Fab place for all your fancy dress needs, loads of hats, wigs, and accessories to complete a look and they also do theatre make up and eyelashes etc. If you're throwing a party they have banners, streamers, balloons and more to decorate with. Let the fun begin.

    Great place to buy all the dress up stuff you need for the various costumes nights students have. Most things are cheap although these tend to sell out fast if there are a lot of people doing one theme. There is usually a most expensive alternative though, which is useful in an emergency. Large selection of hats.

    A great place to get all your joke shop needs, stock most everything you could need for a halloween costume. The store is quite small and all crammed in, but is easily arranged to you can find what you need. They sell stuff like masks, hats wigs, stage make up and costumes. The staff are friendly and the shop is always busy. They also sell joke stuff like garlic mints, itching powder etc, a young boys dream basically lol.
