Playmbil Firehouse 9219 Window Display

Adam from Playmobil has been busy erecting this exciting new Window Display yesterday afternoon and you can come and see it any time of day in the Window of Silly Billy’s Toy Shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 6EN.

We have already written a detailed blog post on the exciting new Playmobil Ghostbusters range, so rather than continue along that same vein we thought it would be a good idea to mention some of the Exciting New products that we have in the World’s Foremost Independent Toy Shop, these include some new Lego Technic to mark Lego’s 40th Anniversary of the Lego Technic Range. We now have four Lego Technic Models in stock:

  • 42044 – Display Team Jet
  • 42045 – Hydroplane Racer
  • 42058 – Stunt Bike
  • 42057 – Ultralight Helicopter

We have a limited supply of Lego Classic Building Boards so if you are after any of them then please get down to Silly Billy’s quickly.

We also have some new Lego City in stock so please pop in and have a look.

We are auctioning of some of our end of line Lego Batman and Lego Star Wars sets so if you are interested in obtaining some cheap Lego please keep an eye on Silly Billy’s Independent EBay Shop

Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes

The ever popular Fidget Spinners are back in stock again and we have three varrieties, all at £4.99. Due to logistics and supply chain we have once again a rather short supply of Fidget Spinners so if you want one then we recommend you come down to Silly Billy’s in Hebden Bridge as soon as is humanly possible. We also ran out of Fidget Cubes and recently have been re-stocked on those as well, so we now have both black and white coloured Fidget Cubes at £5.99 each.

Under Threes

Don’t forget we have a great range of Toys from the Playmobil 1.2.3 range for the under three year olds, including some very exciting new figures.

Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and More

The yearly Hebden Bridge Arts Festival will soon be upon us. This year the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival is running from the 23rd June to 2nd July 2017 with the strap line of “All the Town’s a Stage”. Hebden Bridge is a haven for artists and poets and I am helping out one such poet with their website which will soon be unveiled.

Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is Twenty Years Old Today

Bill Deakin founded Silly Billy’s Toy Shop as an Independent Toy Shop Twenty Years ago in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
Despite a great deal of significant change in UK Toy Retail and several floods in Hebden Bridge, Silly Billy’s has managed to stay afloat.

This is no mean feat when you consider that twenty years ago there were far more Independent Toy Shops around and now sadly many have closed down or been amalgamated into the ToyMaster Group.  Silly Billy’s is still trading after 20 years because of both it’s location and also it’s tenacity. To find out more about what was popular in the Toy Trade twenty years ago then read this article.

Some of the Top Toys of 1997 were the TeleTubbies, Tamagotchi and Buzz Lightyear. Most of which Silly Billy’s Toy Shop have never stocked! We have seen trends and crazes come and go in the last twenty years and the latest Fidget Spinners craze is really turning the tables. Hebden Bridge is an anomaly in the general Toy industry in that popular Toys UK wide can often flop in Hebden Bridge and Bill has learnt many lessons over the past two decades as to what will, and will not, be successful.
Silly Billy’s has faced many challenges over the years and Bill has hung on through thick and thin, the Floods of Boxing Day 2015 almost seeing the business close and without the help of many local people and CFFC we may well have done just that. However, Silly Billy’s managed to continue trading and even relocate to brand new premises in Hebden Bridge.

Bill is not having a Twentieth Birthday party at the shop though he does say that he will have one for the Silver Anniversary of Silly Billy’s in 2022.
We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support, without which we would have closed down, like so many of the other Independent Toy Shops in the UK.

We are happy to be trading from our new location of Old Gate House next door to the Amazing Homely at Hebden, a great shop for Annie Sloan chalkpaint supplies or home furnishings and inspirational ideas. Did you know that they also run Courses on how best to use Chalk Paint?

If you would like to give us anything on our 20th Birthday then all we ask is that perhaps you take the time to review us on Facebook or follow one of our Social Media Profiles:

Fidget Spinners – You asked for them?

Thanks to my chiildren in the first instance for drawing our attention to Fidget Spinners, it has taken a while for us to source some high quality Fidget Spinners also known as Finger Fidgets or Finger Spinners.

Could Fidget Spinenrs be as big as the last massive craze at Silly Billy’s which was Loom Bands. Loom Bands took off like the proverbial forest fire in the Summer of 2014 and we could not literally keep up with demand.
Our Phone has been ringing already this morning with enquires about Fidget Spinners and whether we have them in stock and yes we certainly do and they are priced very competitively at only £3.99 each.
We have high quality fidget spinners with decnt bearings  priced at only £3.99, when comparing this to the ones I bought at a major online retailer ten days ago for my teenage children at £7.99 I now feel relatively ripped off by the online retailer in question. (Begins with an A)
Fidget Spinners

“What are Fidget Spinners ?” I hear you ask

At the most basic a fidget spinner is very easy to use. It is, as you can likely guess, a little widget that spins. Usually the mechanism for this is a single bearing with a bigger balanced structure that extends out around the outside of that bearing. So, when you put the bearing on your finger, you can spin it freely- this is all stabilized with help from the gyroscopic action. Obviously if you want to keep things simple, just pinch the bearing and spin with ease. It keeps your hands hectic, and it’s fantastic if you are of a fiddly disposition. My teenage son reckons that having a fidget spinner helps him with the non-biting of his nails.

Fidget Spinners have taken off in production and they range in price from the quite absurd versions made of Titanium like the Rotablade Stubby (also doubles as a cigar stand!) which retails at around £110 to cheaper plastic versions. We have one such high quality plastic version here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop at the excellent price of only £3.99 and available in blue, red and black colours.
Finger SpinnerFidget Spinners and some feet !

More history on Fidget Spinners

So you may not know that this craze is stems from a Kickstarter project which had aimed to raise a realtively small amount of capital for a Fidget cube project for adult use in the office and has now raised $6,465,690 with 154,926 backers pledged!!

This Danish Company Creates The Best Playgrounds In The World

LEGO aren’t the only Danish engineers inviting kids to celebrate their imagination. One Danish company is building creative one-of-a-kind playgrounds, and they’re every kid’s dream.

MONSTRUM, founded by former theater set designers Ole Barslund Nielsen and Christian Jensen, has been making elaborate and whimsical playgrounds since 2003. From a giant electric eel swirling around a lighthouse to a princess tower and a rocket ship mashup – these imaginative playgrounds are inviting children to play in Denmark, Sweden, Egypt, and other countries. Scroll down to vote for your favorites, and let us know in the comments which one of these thematic playgrounds you’d want in your back yard.

Welcome to our playground in Liseberg, Tivoli in Gothenburg! Swing in gigantic nets and climb as high as you dare (adults might be tempted too), and enjoy close encounters with solar reflections and giant birds.

Back in the days in 1800-something, when Brumleby was located in the countryside there was a dairy and a slaughterhouse at Brumleby. The idea of the playground is to create a piece of this old Brumleby to remind us of its fantastic history.

Can you imaging anything better on a Sunday morning than to be swallowed by a blue whale? You can climb up on to the back of the whale by crawling through its mouth and into its stomach. You can also crawl through the hole in the side and into the basket, that sits on top of the whale. From here you can slide down.

The story takes place on the African savannah. The Lion Chunga lies comfortably, hiding from the small goats and dreaming of his next meal. Behind the grass you will see a glimpse of the old hut in the trees with two giant slides.

Right next to the National Museum of Bermuda you will find a giant green murray eel wrapped around the a lighthouse.

A large dragon has settled in Mulighedernes Park in Aalborg, so children come play if you dare!

Have you ever dreamed to be the size of the insects? The playground, Futuroscope frames that adventure with tall grass, large flowers and a giant ant.

The Sperm Whale has been the focal point of many exciting stories through times. From story about Jonas and the Whale to the stories on Moby Dick and Pinocchio.

The creepy crawling is all over the large playground in Kristinebergs Slottspark. The two giant owls, both 5.5 meters tall, are the king and the queen of the playground. They are ruling over a large slide area, tempting curious boys and girls to enter both long and short slides.

A pilot has been on a long expedition across the Bermuda Triangle to investigate the many stories about the ships and planes mysteriously disappearing in the area

The background of the founding fathers of MONSTRUM is in building set designs for theatres in Copenhagen. Just like a set design a playground must have an inspiring front attracting children and a functional backside with climbing, sliding and relaxing options.

Childrens Railway Station is an indoor playground on the Danish Railway Museum in Odense. The playground is inspired by Odense station in the 1960s.

The Pike is a very voracious fish that eats everything. In the year 1230 a German Emperor captured a pike that was over five meters long and weighed more than 1/4 ton.

The inside of the submarine is separated by a bulkhead with round manholes. The navigation deck can be accessed via the ladder in the submarine tower. Older children can climb from the navigation deck onto the hull of the submarine.

On DOKK1 (Arhus new main library and citizen service center) you will find the playground Kloden (english: the globe). The project is made in collaboration with Schmidt / Hammer / Lassen Architects and Kristine Jensen Architects. The project was donated by the Herman Salling Foundation.

The coaster has wrecked on a sandbank and is broken in two. The many wreckage pieces, such as boxes and logs are spread out in the water and on the sandbank.

In Terville a large frog is looking out of the water. He tries to catch the flies with his long tongue. So beware you do not get eaten, he may well think you are a fly.

Perhaps two ships have stranded on a small island with a lighthouse and a small lighthouse keepers house? Perhaps they have been lured in there by the people living on the island?

The idea of the playground is a journey through the Russian space program. Meet the dogs Lika, Belka or Strelke and jump on to the satellite Sputnik, the launch vehicle R-7 Semyorka and moon vehicle Lunokhod 1. Climb around and explore the history and feel the rush when you crawl into the big crawling tubes or slide down the big slides. Enjoy!

A cannon is on the way out of the hull, still attached to the deck. It looks just too difficult to get on board, but soon you will see new opportunities to find small routes around the explosion.

The Fortress City is designed as a small adventure land where children can hide and play role games.

You can enter the the 260cm tall Diesel engine through the flywheel, and climb on up to three tube slides.

The playground is located at the third floor level, and you can see all the way to Tivoli from the top of the Japanese tower.

A large grass snake twists and turns on the forest floor. Inside the snake there is a long mazy tunnel in which you can hide from the other children when playing tag.

Lots of giant letters are scattered all over the area, inspiring the children to play and have fun. The crazy, oversized letters have different sizes, colors and play opportunities.

If you as a small child want to feel big go to Flledparken in Copenhagen and visit The Tower Playground with its countless opportunities for physical activity and technological interaction.

Stjerneskuddet is an integrated childcare institution for children aged one to six years in Copenhagen. The playground is divided into areas, providing space for riding a bike, playing ball, climbing and sand digging.

The proud ship S/S Oceanliner is on a long journey. Suddenly, a giant octopus rises from the deep blue sea and attacks the ship.

The fishing boat is equipped with a rudder and compass, so that the children have acces to all the tools they need to navigate the boat safely into port.

Marco Polos old ship has run aground the Easter Islands, and she now lies half buried in sand far from civilisation. Two of the cannons are still intact, but the mast lies broken across the railing

A big parrot with multiple levels inside is the new central play equipment on the playground.

Din Teaterpark in Pildammsparken is designed by artist and scenographer Annika Carlsson together with MONSTRUM, and carried out in collaboration with Malmo Stad in 2013-2014.

Between the long reeds stands a big beautiful pheasant. You can crawl into the body of the pheasant that serves as a playhouse in three floors. Around the pheasant is the 2-3 m tall reeds, where you can climb and balance on ropes between the tribes. Both children and adults can use the pheasant, which invites to play and stay.

You are dreaming about a big and sweet banana or pear, while you are sliding down from an apple, climbing on an orange or sailing away on a melon shell.

It is a hot summer day at the beach. We are in very shallow waters where the bladder seaweed sways slightly in the waves.

The large cod is swimming in the eelgrass with tiny fish around him. It works as a combined climbing frame and hide out.

The Danish cartoon series on Petzi tell about a life of adventure. Petzi and his friends sail their ship Mary to discover new land, solve problems for their new friends, build new things, trade, and play together.

An apple has just fallen from the tree and is now in the grass. You can become tiny and crawl into it and explore.

The large globe fell down, and as it hit the ground all the continents slid off. That is why they are now scattered around the globe all over the playground.

This small city is composed of a series of small playhouses, connected by a network of paths that meander through the small town.

The crocodiles are two sculptural elements on the beach. Here you can play or just sit and enjoy the view.

The Globe is a nice little space that you can reach by a net, a firemans pole or a slide

The spider is designed as a giant mechanical spider being caught in its own web. The head is the control cabin with two joystick controllers to handle all the legs.

This playground is designed like a small section of the forest floor with a ladybird, some branches, and some small rocks.

The submarine has just surfaced after yet another adventure. The wave laps onto the foredeck in large soft shape, a great place to run across

The children in Bispeparken wanted a monster on the playground. MONSTRUM put up a trap and caught one.

A large haunted house, three fluttering bats and a dark forest inhabited by ghosts set the mood of the spooky ghost playground in Varberg.

A huge cargo ship is sunk. Now it is on the ocean floor next to the lighthouse and among cargo crates and fish.

Playhouses in Gyllins Trdgrd float on piles in different heights and provide a lovely view of the area.

A great old Galion has gone down in a storm close to shore. Waves are lapping over the sides of the ship.

The playground consists of a small striped town on the fringe of the forest with a large spider in the middle.

Lego Batman Minifigures Collection Complete at Last

WOW, it has taken some quite considerable time, probably because Lego made this series 20 collectible minifigures rather than the usual 16, and at last our Lego Batman Minifigures collection is complete, with some help from Chris of Rogue Robot who luckily helped the author (Robert A Williams) find the last minifigure required which was number 15 called Zodiac Master
Lego Batman Minifigures Zodiac MasterSo how has this Lego Batman Minifigures Collection been received, overall good we would say though perhaps lacking some of the buoyancy that went with the first Lego Movie that was released in 2014 and the Lego Minifigure Movie Series which accompanied that.

Here’s a short review of each Batman Movie Minifigure in the Lego Batman Minifigures Collection:

Holiday Batman

Exactly what does Batman love finest in life? To squash his enemies, and see them owned before him, while he sits in a rubber ducky afloat in a pleasant swimming pool. I mean, it cannot all be late nights perching on high structures and looking moody, right? Giving a whole new significance to “Batsuit,” Batman has actually worn black swimwear embellished with small yellow bats on both front and back.

Commissioner Gordon

The grizzled ally of the Dark Knight, Commissioner Gordon’s got a fantastic old-school investigator appearance with a shoulder holster and a leather badge holder hanging from his belt. He carries a standard radio and a wanted poster for Gotham’s well-known prankster, The Joker.

Nurse Harley Quinn

Nurse Harley Quinn wears a white lab coat with fantastic red highlights. Her pink gloves extend as much as printing onto the sleeves, and she’s got laced red boots through double molded legs.

Harley’s hair is a complicated red and black double mold, and her nurse’s hat is a separate piece which utilizes the basic plume connection. She brings a chart for Arkham Asylum on which she’s been doodling love notes to the Joker in between seeing clients..

Glam Metal Batman

Have you ever wondered exactly what Batman’s side pastime is? Well, question no more. Batman plays in a KISS cover band, inning accordance with this figure. He’s got a basic serrated cape, and dark grey legs with black and silver printing, and a substantial bat-buckle, and naturally, giant black wrist bands.

Dick Grayson

The junior member in Batman’s band of crime-fighters, Dick Grayson will play a large role in The LEGO Batman Movie, where he’ll be voiced by Micheal Cera. Dressed in a wise red sweater (adorned with a duck theme front and back) and traditional blue jeans, Dick carries a can of shark-b-gone, with the dark blue 1 × 1 round brick printed with a No Sharks emblem on one side and “Shark Repellent” emblazoned on the other.

Arkham Asylum Joker

The master villain has been committed to Arkham Asylum, which includes a set of smart orange jumpers. His one accessory is handcuffs, due to the fact that he cannot be wandering about loose.

Few figures in the series have double-sided heads, however the Joker’s snaggle-tooth pout and pitiful frown pairing make this figure definitely worthwhile.

Barbara Gordon

Daughter of Commissioner Gordon, Barbara (voiced by Rosario Dawson) is a design policeman, looking exceptionally clever in her dress blues. She brings a bat signal and a pair of handcuffs for the miscreants who seem to be so commonplace in Gotham.

Catman

Intense as the night, prepared to catch unwary prey, it’s CATMAN! No, this isn’t actually Batman as Wolverine. Catman is a Batman villain initially presented in 1963, where he was a huge game hunter.

Orca

A bad guy with a marine propensity, Orca shape moves his way through criminal offense. This white and black figure is easy, without any accessories.

Fairy Batman

Due to the fact that in some cases Batman simply has to feel quite pink.

Fairy Batman’s got a pink leotard and tutu over top of his black bat armor. The intense pink tutu initially appeared in white in the Collectible Minifigures Series 15 Ballerina. The torso and helmet are brilliant pink, and the ballet slippers are dark pink (courtesy of the double molded legs). Fairy Batman has trans-pink insect wings, and brings a trans-pink wand.

Red Hood

A well-known villain by another name, Red Hood is the Joker’s pre-acid-vat-dunk guise. Using a red bell jar (a new color for that piece), Red Hood has a handsome bow tie and a serrated red cape, and brings double gatling gun.

Beneath the bell container hood, Red Cape bears more than a passing similarity to Deadpool.

Pink Power Batgirl

Batgirl (aka Barbara Gordon) takes the Dark Knight mindset and turns it completely. Dayglow pink is the method to go! Her upper body, skirt, and boots are dark pink, and she wields a dark pink Batarang.

Clan of the Cave Batman

If you’ve ever desired a Neolithic Batman minifig, LEGO’s got your back. With a bring leopard-print toga and stone-carved batbrooch, Clan of the Cave Batman carries a big club.

Zodiac

Zodiac is a criminal mastermind with misleading prowess, skilled at tricking the criminal world into believing he can inform the future. Zodiac has an intense light blue body and legs covered in astrological indications, and a small various shade head (medium blue) with a Z on it.

The Calculator

Similar to Batman, the Calculator depends on shrewd to outmaneuver his opponents. Nevertheless, the Calculator utilizes algorithms, not mental skill, to evaluate challengers and determine an optimal technique. With white power-armor and a timeless white helmet over a lavender upper body, the Calculator doesn’t have any devices beyond his wearable computer.

King Tut

Nothing states fearsome extremely bad guy like “rampaging Egyptologist.” King Tut has an elaborate dark red Egyptian bathrobe with dark blue and gold fringes, and bears a dour expression.

Eraser

The Eraser is here to chew gum and eliminate things, and he’s all out of gum. Seldom has a super villain’s objectives been so well lined up with their guise. Dressed like an enormous #2 pencil in a bright light orange pinstriped fit

The Eraser’s head is a new piece. It’s a dual molded bright light orange and flat silver 1 × 1 round brick that’s 4 plates high, with detail rings around it. The eyes are printed on.

The Mime

A deadly but quiet bad guy, The Mime is a martial arts master with a flair for the theatrical. She wields two lightning bolts, and sports a dark blue mohawk (a brand-new color for that piece).

Lobster-Lovin’ Batman

Often, late at night, Batman gets starving hungry. When you’re as rich as Batman, you don’t opt for a piece of string cheese and remaining pizza; no sir. You choose lobster. Batman has actually been taking it easy in your home, lounging about in his dark red robe which almost matches the wallpaper in the 1966 Batcave. Batman’s expression is special to this figure.

March Harriet

March Harriet is an unexpected addition for The LEGO Batman Movie, given that she’s an escort by sell her introductory comic in 2008. Her strapless bunny suit is medium dark flesh, with light flesh arms and head.

Hebden Bridge Market has moved

Dave Young has given us some useful information about Hebden Bridge Market which we would like to share as some visitors to Hebden Bridge may not be aware of the new Hebden Bridge Market situation so here it is straight from the Horse’s Mouth, as it were:
The new Hebden Bridge Market is up and running today (thursday 13th  at Lees Yard. It will be a 4 day Hebden Bridge Market. Thursday as Usual, Friday – Bric-a-brac, Saturday Local Artisan Market – Arts & Crafts etc and Sunday Local Produce Market.

Hebden Bridge Market Transfers to Lees Yard

The new, and hopefully better, Hebden Bridge Market opens on Thursday 13 April 2017 (today) in its new area of Lees Yard on the side of St George’s Square.

Work has been happening over the last 10 weeks to prepare the site for the all new Hebden  market. Alterations have actually been made to the existing format and also include a new prep work unit for traders, storage facility for stalls and also public lavatories.

Along with the regular Thursday market, the bric-a-brac market which typically opens on a Wednesday will change to every Friday, in Lees Yard, from Friday 14 April (Good Friday).

There will also be an added, new Saturday market, selling crafts as well as craftsmen items. This will be every Saturday, from 15 April.

The Sunday local produce market will stay in Lees Yards and will now open each and every Sunday

Dave Young was at the market this morning for an interview with BBC Radio Leeds which was broadcast earlier today
