Lego Store Locations – Lego Store Location

Silly Billy’s are a Premier Lego Store Location

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.

For even more details on the classic range please visit www.lego.com/en-gb/classic
Lego Classic 10708

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

Tomorrow, 25th March 2017, Silly Billy’s Toy Shop will be celebrating their first full year of trading at their new toy shop location in Bridge Gate, Hebden Bridge, next door to Homely at Hebden. If you are looking for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, up-cycling tricks or tips, or some great re-loved furniture or gifts then pop in and see them.

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:

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:

We have no idea what the weather will be like in Hebden Bridge on Bank Holiday Mondy 17th April 2017, though Bill, the owner, a meteorological expert, reckons it will be fine and sunny.

Saw Lego Batman Movie Opening Night – And I Was Not Disappointed!

Lego Batman Movie Coming to Hebden Bridge Picture House Next Weekend

Lego Batman Movie

Images Originating from: https://imgflip.com/i/1jo9me

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.
Originally published here

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:
Lego Movie MinifguresOriginal 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.

Toys for 1 Year Old – New at Silly Billy’s

Toys for 1 Year Old

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.
Green Toys for 1 year old

Complimenting our range of Wooden Toys from Big Jigs we have the Rolling Shape Sorter suitable, suitable for a 1 year old
Toys for 1 Year OldAlso 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 !)

This Is What The Internet Looked Like In 1973, funny that…

The Internet is an ever-expanding sea of billions of people, connected through a web of smartphones, laptops, watches, and cars.
Forty years ago, it was a very different picture indeed.
David Newbury tweeted a map of the Internet that his father saved in 1973 when he worked as a business manager of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, one of the early pioneers of computer technology.Back then, it was known as the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET). This government-funded project was officially disbanded in 1990, but it effectively became the foundations of the current day Internet we all know. You can read more about the map in this a report from theNASA Ames Research Center.

Instead of the sometimes bewildering Internet of things we have today, it consisted of just 45 computers connected to 40 nodes. The squares represent the nodes, which are equivalent to a router, and the ovals represent a host, which essentially denotes a computer.

There was also some sleuthing on Redditaround the maps that managed to work out some of the university labs and military bases that the diagram was referring to, some of which are still about today.

For some perspective, heres what a map of the Internet looks like today.

This is how the network appeared when mapped out. California State University Domingues hill/Public Domain
