We are one of the few independent Toy Shops left that are stockists of Lego and have a huge range. We are based in Hebden Bridge, one of the most diverse towns for Independent Shops and looking at Lego Store Locations across the UK, Silly Billy’s are one of the best.
Today we received part of an order that we have created for Easter 2017 from Lego Distribution. This includes some exciting new products from Lego and some old favourites.
Our Lego City Range has increased dramatically in our Lego Store Location to include:
We have some new for 2017 Lego Classic Sets including Lego 10706, 10708 and 10709 Blue, Green and Orange Creativity Boxes
For even more details on the classic range please visit www.lego.com/en-gb/classic
Lego are continually inventing and re-inventing products and one of the latest, that unfortunately we cannot get hold of, is The Silent Mary. This Amazing Galleon from Pirates of the Caribbean looks to be a top build and one that would provide hours of entertainment. You can only buy the Silent Mary which is available now to Lego VIP Customers (the author of the blog is one of those) and available for general release on 1st April 2017 see shop.lego.com/en-GB/Silent-Mary-71042
To compliment our exisiting Lego batman range we have also just received 70905, The Batmobile
Dolls are Reborn with Dolls World new at Silly Billy’s
There is a resurgence in Dolls and Silly Billy’s Toy Shop used to stock a lot of dolls at one time in their old toy shop in Hebden Bridge.
Now Dolls are back and we have a selection of Dolls from Dolls World here at Silly Billy’s :-
Talking Tammy even creates a realistic baby sound:
Dolls World Talking Tammy:
38cm (15″) baby doll with bean filled bum, sleeping eyes, deluxe romper, jacket, hat and dummy. Press her limbs and tummy for 21 real baby sounds. Age 18m+.
We have Mia back by popular demand and also some Little Loves Dolls at only £9.99
What more can we say about Dolls ? Well, Dolls have been absent for a time at Silly Billy’s and we are now happy they have come back to us in our all new toy shop. We have also recently increased our bath toys range for young folk and we have some exciting pr0ducts for bath play.
Some exciting new products that have also made a resurgence here are Sea Monkeys which we have back in stock also after an absence of some time:
Knights are a popular theme and always have been for children, young and old. To compliment our always popular Knights Swords, we now have exciting Knights Battle Armour.
We are increasing our product range as is usual at this time of year and in the run-up to Easter. One of the biggest events in Hebden Bridge at Easter is the Hebden Bridge Duck Race and this Easter it falls on Ban Holiday Monday 17th April 2017, to learn more about the Duck Race 2017 and buy a ticket please visit the Rotary Club’s Official Duck Race website at: www.hebdenbridgerotary.org.uk/duckrace
With the Lego Batman Movie coming to the Hebden Bridge Picture House in 12 days time, we can see the excitement that has already been generated from the general release on 10th February. We have written about Lego Batman before on this blog and have held out seeing the new movie until it’s release in our local Independent Cinema, The Hebden Bridge Picture House.
What have the critics said ?
Owen Gleiberman in Variety says: The first thing to say about “The Lego Batman Movie” is that it’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like “The Lego Movie” (2014), it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox. The movie uses digital animation to create the illusion that it’s set in a herky-jerky universe of plastic Lego bricks — but it has such a kaleidoscopic, anything-goes flow that it trumps the imagination of just about any animated feature you could name. The characters are Lego minifigures with pegs for heads and crudely etched faces that barely move, yet they have more personality than the majority of human actors. Most delicious of all: “The Lego Batman Movie” comes on like a kid-friendly sendup of the adult world, yet there’s a dizzying depth to its satirical observations that grows right out of the spectacularly fake settings, which are hypnotic to look at but have the effect of putting postmodern quotation marks around…everything.

We have plenty of Lego Batman Minifgures left for all of you trying to complete the Lego Batman Movie Minifgure collection of twenty minifigures. As this is a limited edition release of minifgures you can expect them to increase in value just as the Lego Movie (2014) Minifgures have done. See image below: Original Price £2.49 RRP per minifigure so one set would cost 16 x £2.49 = £39.84 if you can determine each minifgure individually
Sale price £79.99 which is pretty much double the cost price.
Something we are quite often asked in Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is do you have something for very young children like Toys for 1 Year Old or Toys for Babies. Today we are glad to say we have received some more Green Toys in our Toy shop and we are so glad to have them back. Made in the USA Green Toys have a low carbon impact and are 100% recycled, we have Submarines And Tug-Boats to complement our existing bath toys range. The Submarines and Tug-Boats are number one sellers in Toys for 1 year old and below, they are suitable for children from 6 months.
To add to this we also have two Green Toys vehicles, the Dump Truck, popular with anyone who might be a Gold Rush Fan ! And the every popular Fire-Truck. These vehicles are suitable as Toys for 1 year old and are certified safe for children from 12 months. They are exceedingly robust and remind us of the old fashioned Tonka Toys, though made of recycled plastic and not metal.
Complimenting our range of Wooden Toys from Big Jigs we have the Rolling Shape Sorter suitable, suitable for a 1 year old
Also back by popular demand are BigJigs British Isles Wooden Puzzle maps, great for learning the Counties and areas of the United Kingdom (we used to do a Europe one as well, although it has ceased post Brexit !)
As our popularity grows on Social Media so does the visibility of our Retail Shop and after the devastation of Boxing Day 2016 we would really appreciate if you could take a few seconds out of your busy schedule and like our Facebook Page and share it with your friends
