Nutters | Throwback Thursday

Thursday, 9 January 2014

For my first Throwback Thursday post of the year I've picked this hilarious photo from the family photo albums of me, my little sister and Dad playing Doh Nutters.  Did anyone else have this game*??  It basically involved you wearing fetching elephant masks and trying to pick up plastic doughnuts with your trunk - and as you can see it makes for an almighty embarassing photograph (sorry Dad....).  

I think the photo is from Christmas Day (probably around 1994?), given the pile of toys on the left and the tinsel around the classic boxy TV.  Ahh the days when Christmas Day meant spending the afternoon playing with all your new toys and getting the family involved in the newest board game!

Also check out my shiny shellsuit trousers, a fire hazard if I ever saw one.

*Turns out you can still buy it!


  1. Aaaaah I loved this game! The masks were always that little bit creepy but the game was oh so good! xxx

  2. Aw that game brings back so many memories and was so much fun, i hated shellsuits and my mum bought me a bright purple one which you can guess was awful! Glad my family were not the only ones that put tinsel around the t.v lol
