The weird and wonderful items you can buy in Cardiff for a quid, including sex toys and viagra

One pound can go a long way, take note Alfie Deyes


Everyone loves a good bargain, especially us students. And one place you can always rely on finding one is in the famous one pound shop, also known as Poundland. After doing some searching, we thought it would be interesting to find the most ludicrous items you can buy there for just a pound, as most of us are only familiar with their sweet aisle and washing up liquid.

From pet food to protein powder, and sex toys to fake boobs, our resident discount store down Queen Street in Cardiff is full of weird and wacky products. Here's a list of what you can get your hands on.

Sex toys

It's hard to believe, but Poundland have released their own brand of sex toys called "Nooky", including "vibrating love eggs", "joy rings" and "finger stimulators". Gone are the days of having to fork out for expensive bits of plastic. These bargain buys come with no hazard warnings, but should probably only be used at your own risk.

Sexual stimulant pills

You've heard of viagra, but have you ever heard of "Nooky" stimulant pills? These bad boys are designed to stimulate anyone who's having trouble with their labido. They'd make a funny secret Santa gift but we're yet to find out if they work.
