We are a family run business situated on the Seafront of Scarborough.
We have been selling practical jokes, novelties, fancy dress costumes and magic since 1996. Yes, that long! 

And we thought it was about time to extend our laughter and products via the world wide web. So here we are!

We sell on ebay, amazon and our own website

People always tell us of their fond memories of coming to Scarborough and visiting the Joke Shop, it's a tradition for some families!

We have a large range of magic in the Scarborough store, 6 cabinets of Close up Magic, Card Tricks, Stage props and Magical Accessories.

Give us a call and try our service just like hundreds of thousands of happy customers before you.
We have a very fast turnaround on orders. We use Royal Mail which is generally pretty quick, or you can upgrade trackable guaranteed next working day delivery too. Just order before 3pm and our store-elves will get right onto it.
We ship everything from our very own premises where the shelves are full of Joke Scratch Cards, Horse Head Masks, Whoopee Cushions, Hen Night Sashes and Scary Halloween Masks all year round.
Our customers include the likes of Paul Daniels, Royal Shakespeare Company, BBC TV shows like QI and Trade Your Way To The USA, Brian Conley and the band Madness.
