Summer School Holidays are Upon Us All

So the long Summer School Holidays have started and here at Silly Billy’s we have a lot of new toys and games for the young and old, from babies to teenagers we have much to keep you entertained through the Summer School Holidays, so come and visit us at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop, in Old Gate, Hebden Bridge

We have had a delivery from our Lego friends in Denmark, including some new Lego Speed Champions, including the hard to find Speed Champion Audi R18 e-tron quattro 75872 plus some more of the exciting Lego Creator range. Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is one of the premier independent toy shops to sell Lego, so please buy from us and help keep the independent toy trade alive.

For the Summer School Holidays we have a selection of Pocket Travel Games from the House of Marbles including, Pocket Chess, Pocket Ludo, pocket Snakes & Ladders and Pocket Battleships, all of which can be used to while away those long journeys that occur during the Summer School Holidays. We also have Travel Scrabble and Pass the Pigs, as well as quality playing cards and the great card game of UNO.

School Summer Holidays

For outdoor play we have Footballs, Hula Hoops, Fishing Nets, Cricket Sets and so much more to keep your children entertained during the school summer holidays.

Here at Silly Billy’s we get some new products in each year for the School Summer Holidays and one thing that has been requested by children and adults alike is SLIME so we have obtained two versions of Slime for your entertainment, new Frogs in Slime and Unicorns in Slime to complement our existing Aliens in Slime. How much more Slime do you need in your life ?

This year we celebrate our twentieth birthday here at Silly Billy’s meaning that we have been serving the children of Hebden Bridge, the Calder Valley and beyond, our furthest customers have come from New Zealand, and during that time we have seen babies grow into adults whilst remaining the best Independent Toy Shop in Yorkshire and probably in the whole of England over the past twenty years.

Boo Boo Lost in Hebden Bridge

Many children are very attached to their cuddly toys, my own children being no different. My daughter has long been in love with her cuddly toys and various TY Beanies that she has, even to this point whilst she is a teenager.

One cuddly toy that was recently spotted by the blog author on the way to work at Silly Billy’s Toy shop on Friday 30th June 2017 is a Teddy called Boo Boo, whose owner is Uma. There is a picture of Boo Boo below and the sign where he was spotted on Friday in Hangrinroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge, HX7. In part, to assuage my own guilt a little, I am writing this blog post to get even more visibility for Boo Boo the lost bear. I say that I feel guilty because I did think about picking Boo Boo up and taking him to Silly Billy’s Toy shop, and now rather regretfully I am sorry to say I did not take this course of action.

Uma came into Silly Billy’s Toy shop today with her dad and was looking rather distraught so it is a sad state of affairs that Boo Boo may have been carried off by another child or adult. If you have seen an sign of Boo Boo then please get in touch with us here at SillY Billy’s Toy shop, easiest way is through our Facebook Page, although if you are not one of the 2 BILLION monthly active Facebook users then you can use this form instead

At some point on Friday 31st June 2017 then, between approximately 9am and 5 40 pm, Boo Boo was taken from the point where he was sat patiently waiting for his owner on the road sign; if anyone has seen Boo Boo or picked him up then please get in touch with us here at Silly Billy’s and we will re-unite him with Uma.

Our main Cuddly Toy that we stock at Silly Billy’s is the TY range and we have recently reduced the price of all our TY Key rings aka BooClips to £2.99 which makes us one of the cheapest places in the UK to buy TY Key rings / Booclips from.

We had our TY rep come into the shop the other day and we are going to be getting some more TY in the next few weeks, both new TY beanies and new Teeny TY.

Please don’t forget to like Silly Billy’s Facebook Page and share the post above to  help re-unite Boo Boo and Uma.

Silly Billy’s Toy Shop are also very active on Twitter and Pinterest so search for us there as well if you use any of those Social Media Platforms.

New Arrivals Summer 2017

We have some exciting new arrivals at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop for the Summer of 2017. Summer is a time when people go away and travel and to that end we have managed, after some requests and searching of our Suppliers to obtain Original Travel Scrabble which we now have in and costs £17.99, we also have some other travel games in stock from House of Marbles including Travel Ludo, Travel Chess, Travel Sea Battle and Travel Snakes and Ladders all at £4.99.
Magnetic Travel GamesAfter some absence from the shop, the very exciting game of Pass The Pigs returns, as this comes with it’s own travelling pouch this is another great game to take on your summer holiday adventures as are the Mini-Games from Orchard toys as shown below.
Orchard mini gamesPass The Pigs GameThe very popular Playmobil Ghostbusters range was looking quite shabby after being hit hard due to it’s popularity and we now have the full range of Playmobil Ghostbusters back in stock, you can read more about the Playmobil Ghostbusters range here.
Playmobil ghostbustersAs you may or may not be aware, Silly Billy’s have decided to re-stock Doll’s after an absence of a number of years and we have a new doll visiting, carrying on the travelling theme, in her very own car seat is Isabella.
Isabella DollVehicles are always popular at Silly Billy’s and we have increased our range with some die-cast range rovers at £5.99 and light and sound die-cast fighter jet planes as well as some other vehicles which you can view in the post below:

So come to Silly Billy’s Toy Shop today to help your children easily while away their time on those long car journeys and plane trips that make up the Summer Holidays.
As you may have noticed the Weather in Hebden Bridge has not been very summery at all recently and we are really hoping this will improve soon as we have also managed to get in some bat and ball sets that people have been asking for, at only £4.99. If it continues raining they will probably not be sold very quickly

I have worked at Silly Billy’s retail shop for nearly 4 years now and (don’t tell Bill !) I have tried to avoid doing the poster orders as it seems quite a faff.

Yesterday, 9th June 2017 we received a late delivery of GB Eye Posters and Bill had to leave the shop so I ended up putting the posters in the poster display. It was not such a faff as I had imagined though it did take quite a considerable amount of time. So our Poster Stocks in Silly Billy’s Toy Shop have been fully replenished and we have some new and exciting posters in the shop. Here’s the list:

  • FP4521  Minecraft World Beyond
  • FP4506 Attack on Titan Season 2
  • FP4510 Yu Gi Oh Dark Side of Dimension K (do you know we have the latest Yu Gi Oh Cards as well?)
  • FP4374 Wonder Woman Sword (Has anyone seen the new WW movie yet, what do you think?)
  • FP4509 DC Universe Rebirth
  • GN0860 Emoji * Believe in Unicorns
  • FP4480 Doctor Who Compilation
  • LP2089 Little Mix Glory Days
  • PH0534 VW Camper Illustration
  • GN0751 European Map (Soft Brexit, Hard Brexit ?)
  • GN0147 UK Map Political (No comment)
  • PH0357 Dolphins Underwater
  • PH0427 Horses Mare and Foal

We have always stocked GB Eye Posters here at Silly Billy’s and GB Eye like many other companies helped us out enormously after the devastating flooding we experience on Boxing Day 2015 resulting in us relocating our toy shop to our great new premises in Old Gate, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 6EN

This weekend we are doing a very special promotion on Fidget Spinners here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop and you can buy, until 5pm tomorrow, Sunday 11th June 2017, three fidget spinners for only £10 (stocks are limited in quantity)

Did you know that we recently quietly celebrated Silly Billy’s twentieth year of trading here in Hebden Bridge ?

It’s wet outside, normal state of affairs really for the weather here in Hebden Bridge, Silly Billy’s new Toy Shop with exciting new products like GB Eye Posters, Cap Guns, Fidget Spinners and so much more is DRY, do why not come to Hebden Bridge and visit us today ?

Cap Guns and News

In the midst of a strange and uneasy election result Silly Billy’s can report some new and exciting product lines, including Cap Guns

For a long long time, due to some odd legal requirements, we have not stocked Cap Gun’s here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop. Recently we have some new additions to our Toy Lines and these include some quality Cap Guns at a great price of only £2.99 and we also sell Caps for the Guns at only £1, see images below.

Cap guns

Cap Guns – £2.99         Caps – £1.00

Fidget Spinners are still a hit and to celebrate their ongoing success we are offering a Special Deal until Sunday 11th June 2017 at 17:00 where you can come in and buy three fidget spinners for only £10 when the retail price is £4.99 each, saving you a massive £4.97. What can you do with three Fidget Spinners? Simple, just create a Fidget Spinner Three Stack like we have in the video below.

The only small caveat (that’s been a pretty well-used adjective recently) to this is that to redeem the Special Offer of Three Fidgets for a Tenner (£10), then please like the Facebook post below:

Have you seen the other unusual toys that we have in stock at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop

The election has been monopolising the News recently so as a change I would like to just give a short review of the latest Baywatch Movie which turned out to be much more amusing and entertaining than I expected.

Baywatch 2017 was a satirical take on the Baywatch series that was running from 1989 to 1999 in various guises staring the wonderful David Hasselhoff as Mitch and Pamela Stevenson as CJ. Both these actors made Guest Appearances and it should be said that Pamela has aged far better than David, or maybe she has had far more disposable income to spend on cosmetic surgery? So the new film had a semi-plausible plot line, some very funny one-liners and overall was pretty well acted overall, so when Baywatch comes to the Hebden Bridge Picture House then Robert A Williams, Author of this blog and many others, recommends that you go and see it.
