And few things can cheer you up better than a package with new clothes! We are here to introduce you to a new and impressive online store we have discovered-!

What did we pick?

After a lot of errm an ahhhs, we finally settled on the most popular tees on their website- the One Car Less in fuchsia for Arpita and the Getting high in bright red for Swarnali. The tees look exactly the same as the pics displayed on the website.

The color Arpita picked goes with her pink framed glasses and the quote helps her make an excuse for her abysmal driving skills, or lack thereof. 

How it looks on the website.

How it looks in real.

Swarnali chose to be a little ambiguous with her tee. It could mean the obvious reaching for higher aims in life or the little subtle hint at "getting high" on you-know-what . The bright color of the tee instantly brightens your day and is very mood-uplifting.

How we both looked-

Payment options - has a CC Avenue verified secure online card payments facility. Customers will be directly taken to the secure portal when they select the card payment option. The website provides free shipping on all orders above INR 500. A minimal shipping and processing charge of INR 39 is charged for orders below INR 500. 
If you are not comfortable with using your card for the payment, fret not. The company has associated with the very trusted Gharpay from cash payments. This method is different from the regular COD payments. Once you agree to opt for this, the Gharpay officials will collect the cash from your home directly and the product will be shipped once your payment is received.


If you are not satisfied with your purchase and want an exchange, all you have to do is to contact the representatives on the helpline. The customer will be provided an address to which the product is to be shipped back after which the desired exchange item will be sent to them promptly. The buyer has to bear the costs of the return in exchange of which, the company will provide a INR 50 voucher redeemable towards future purchases.

Special Mention- The company representatives were extremely helpful and kind during the process and the return process was very promptly and smoothly handled.

Things We Heart-

1. The layout of the website: It's so appealing and one look at the home page gives you a good idea about what they have to offer.

  • The collections are neatly arranged and sorted in the website for a easy browsing experience.
  • Each product has multiple pictures from various angles so that the customer can have a good view of the product before purchasing.
  • A very detailed and neat FAQ and Terms and conditions sections to clear any doubts about the procedure the customer might have.
2. The merchandise itself! These tee shirts look trendy and cute and we doubt there's anyone who wouldn't look good in them! The material is 100% cotton which is not flimsy and has a great texture. The tees fit perfectly on both of us and the material is so soft and comfortable that you can wear it for a long time during the hot Indian summers.

3. The super-fast delivery. We received the products in less than two days time. We had placed our orders on Saturday afternoon and the products reached our doors on Monday morning in great condition.

4. The adorable washing instructions on the inside will make you laugh out loud- that was our favorite part!

5. The team at TeesTanks also sent us complementary drawstring bags to go with our tees, which came as such a pleasant surprise. Every first purchase gets you one cute bag. Use the promo code FREEBAG to get the same. 

6. A handwritten note makes things all the more special- like a gift from a friend. And that's what the team sent us, and we will never forget the gesture. It was entirely unexpected and incredibly cute. It is these small details and gestures which make things all the more memorable. Added to it was the fact that the entire package was gift wrapped in a pretty colored paper. Too adorable. 

A few suggestions on improvement-

1) Add more products in the Unisex category. But since, the company is a new launch, we believe more products will come on the website very soon.

2) Arrange for reverse pick ups to save the customer any hassle during the exchange process. This too, we are sure will be added as they are new and need sometime to have associations with the courier companies for reverse pickups processes.

3) Introduce the COD option as well because a lot of customers prefer this option.

Overall experience-

The entire experience was delightful and we love the tees we got for ourselves. Do we recommend? YES, absolutely.

You can buy these tees and others here and here. Don't forget to let us know about your experience.

Games Review- 'Antakshari' and 'The Bakwaas Game' by MadRat Games

Hello World !!

How have all of you been?
This is the first time I am reviewing something like this on the blog. I was sent two very different board games from MadRat Games.
Here is what I thought of them-

A few things you need to know about MadRat Games-
  • Award of Excellence - App4India, TechSparks 2011
  • Winner IIM Calcutta Biz Plan Competition - "Ideas to Implementation 2009"
  • Creators of Aksharit-The World's First Hindi Word Building Board game. Aksharit now has a mobile and computer version too.
The first game I received is the classic game of Antakshari that every Indian has played sometime or the other in their life. 

Priced at- 125 INR

Contents- The pack comes with an instruction sheet and a pack of 60 cards with different types of topics on them. 

 Number of players - Unlimited

 Age - No bar. Anybody can play.

rule sheet
 Time - No time limit.

The pretty cards

 How to play-

  • Each player or team gets to pick one card from a random arrangement.
  • Sing a song accordingly. for example, if your card has "Kajol+ Shah Rukh Khan" written on it, you have to sing a song which features these two actors. Or if your card has the picture of eyes (ankhein) ,heart (dil) and bangles (choodi or kangna), you can pick any one of them and sing a song that has the word in the first few lines.
  • Each correct song would fetch the marks written on the card.
  • The person / team with the highest score at the end of the game (which should be 4-5 rounds) is the winner.


  • This is a multi-player game and a lot of people can play at the same time.
  • A lot many options and variety (the pack has 60 cards) like - songs with a particular letter, dumb charade cards with movie names, actor couples, particular scenes and many more.
  • Needs nothing more than just the pack of cards to play. No special skills required apart from some basic knowledge about Bollywood songs (which am pretty sure everybody has ).
  • No age bar. everybody can play.


None I could find.

This game is a great idea for passing away your idle time during long distance train journeys and during picnic gatherings. I had a great time playing this with my classmates during a long break between our classes at the university.

The second game I received is a completely new one. It is called The Bakwaas Game (or the nonsense game)

 Priced at-  225 INR

Contents- One pack of 55 cards, a set of letter tokens, 4 pencils, one minute sand timer, rules sheets and the letter pad for keeping record of the marks.

 Age - 10+ years

Number of players- 2 to 8

That little blue white thing you see is the one minute sand timer. that is my personal favorite item from the box. 

How to play-
  • The topic cards each have two topics on them. The letter tokens are to be put int a bag.
  • Shuffle the cards and pick any topic card.
  • Similarly pick a random letter from the token bag.
  • Select the combination which is agreed by all. For example the card says "Things to do when you turn 18/ Things to find in a canteen" and the first option is selected from the two unanimously. The letter token lets suppose is "G". Start the sand timer when everyone is ready.
  • Now write as many one or two worded examples of the topics you chose. For example for the above combination you could write GET MARRIED, GET DRIVING LICENCE , GET HIGH and so on and so forth. These are the logical examples I could think of. You can make up any inane bakwaas. The more unbelievable and out of the box the idea is, the better.
  • Stop scribbling when the time runs out and all the sand is settled on one side of the timer.
  • You get points for every unique bakwaas example you wrote. That is if any other player wrote exactly the same example as yours, it gets struck off. Nobody scores for that idea. You get 10 points for just the unique ones.
  • The scoring is the best part. For getting a score for each bakwaas example you wrote, you have to convince your opponents of its validity. Like you could say 18 is the legal age to consume alcohol. So I might as well decide to get high and, hence, the bakwaas is valid. If everyone agrees, you score, else not.
  • The person with the highest score at the end of 5-7 rounds wins.

  • A very innovative idea. It is like a punch of poker and that childhood game almost everybody played where we had to list names, places, things, animals and birds with a particular letter.
  • A great way to make kids think out of the box and learn new words.
  • A lot of variations possible. It is almost an infinite combination. There are 55 cards/110 topics and 26 alphabets. Yeah, you can permute to get the number of variations possible. Am too lazy to do that for you. 
  • The box comes with pencils, timer and scoring and writing pads. So, you don't have to run to get stationery for everyone while playing.


  • The only con I think is that the rules can be a little too complicated for kids. I had a hard time trying to explain it to my niece and my neighbor's kids. Well, you could also say that I'm really bad at explaining things out to kids. 

Learning words was never more fun. If you have a kiddo's birthday in line and are clueless what to gift them, this is your best bet. Forget the old school cars and doll sets and give them something more substantial from the MadRat Games indoor games galore.

Overall experience- MadRat Games have come up with these amazing array of games for people of all ages. the games are very innovative and highly enjoyable. A must try for all indoor games lovers.

You can buy the two games and many other amazing games from MadRat Games on Flipkart, Shopo and Hoopos. These games are also available at retail stores across the country.
You can also know more about their games from their website and join their Facebook page for more updates from them.

P.S.- Apologies to the entire MadRat Games team for the delay in posting the review and thanks a lot for the patience regarding the same.
