4. The sweetie tricycle

Move over sweetie cart, the sweetie tricycle is the new kid in town. Well the sweet mobile is not actually available for hire in Ireland as yet, but as its popularity grows across the pond we think it’s only a matter of time before the prop catches on here.

5. The fob

You may remember back in the day when spinning fobs were the must-have accessory. The fob is making a comeback as and we love this one by My-Wishbone.com – it has a broken symbol when spun forms a complete heart and is said to represent love, hope or joy.
