fly-in-cube-122sq.jpgButtericks is one of those crazy shops that sells everything from metal hand buzzers to whoopee cushions. At this fun little store you can also find such off-the-wall pranks as garlic-flavored candy and plastic “ice cubes,” each with a “fly” inside. You can try out loose noses and other, much more outrageous disguises at no cost, of course, or you may find some little gag that you just have to buy to take home to amaze your friends and fool your foes.

In addition to gags and pranks, at Buttericks you’ll also find costumes, wigs and a thousand other things that can make any party a little more entertaining. Their main store is located on one of Stockholm’s major shopping streets, Drottninggatan, so while you’re checking out a bunch of novelty items, other members of your family can spend their time window shopping nearby. Make sure you drop in if you are anywhere in the vicinity during your visit to Stockholm. You won’t regret it!
