Things you didn’t know you could do with emoji

Emoji, emoji everywhere. There’s just no escaping it at the moment. Messages are littered with it, news articles have started using it and it’s all over the high street.

With an emoji movie hitting big screens next year (Emojimovie: Express Yourself, staring James Corden 💩) it doesn’t seem like the emoji bubble is ready to burst just yet.

But did you know that there’s a whole bunch of things you can do with emoji, other than send them to your friends? 💯

Here’s the best (and the worst) of the rest…

Play games 🎮

From mobile games to board games, there are lots of ways to have fun with emoji. Emojinary is a new board game that has hit stores, that will truly put your emoji knowledge to the test. Everyone knows emojis but how quickly can you work out what they’re trying to say? In this exciting board game of pictures (and a few words!), your skills are tested with three fun party classics – “guessing”, “acting” and “drawing”! You can also buy mobile games such as Guess The Emoji to play with.

Sit on them 😂

The volume of emoji merchandise available is just insane. You can get emoji everything! You can get emoji sweetstoys, stationary, mobile accessories, bed sheets, jewellery and cushions. The cushions are exactly as you’d imagine them, with a whole host of different faces for you to sit on.

Wear them 👗

Yes, if you so wish, you can get emoji branded clothing. From this fetching unisex emoji tracksuit to slippers, you can dress yourself head to toe in emoji. And if that’s not enough, you can now get emoji masks, so you can transform yourself into one. If you’d like to. If you’re into that.

Be anti-social 😒

Are words really needed anymore? Seriously? With Apple recently announced even more emjois (from croissants to face-palms), is there anything we can’t covey with emoji now? 👎. What do you want for dinner? 🍕. What’s on your mind? 🍆. What shall we do tonight? 🖥&❄️. Take your antisocial tendencies to the next level by buying emoji stickers, sticking them to people who ask you questions to perfectly express your feelings without having to use your words.
