About Us

Based in Hull, East Yorkshire, we are a traditional family run business. At Dinsdales Joke & Trick Shop, we’ve been providing the same excellent service since the 1930's, and it’s as popular now as it was then. Our premises are like a living museum and there’s no-one quite like us. We’ve had visitors from all over the world who are amazed and feel like they have gone back to their childhood. Even the design of the shop reflects our 1930s heritage, and we’re always excited to welcome new customers to our premises. We’re proud of the reputation that we’ve established, and we pride ourselves on good old fashioned service with a smile. We have an extensive range of fancy dress costumes, jokes and magic props and lots lots more. 

Visit us today at our city centre shop to browse our vast range of stock and take yourself back to your childhood.

“Very pleased to have discovered this amazing shop today. Our three boys think it's the best shop they've ever been in. We really enjoyed meeting the owner and hearing some funny stories and it's history. Can't wait to use the purchases!”

“Been around even before I was a baby. Used to spend many happy memories with my face up against the window staring in awe. Btw folks he stocks pineapple glasses for Hawaiian day on Saturday and all other paraphernalia.”
