And the Winner is:
Rebecca Coyle, from nearby Todmorden.
So, VERY WELL DONE and Congratulations to Rebecca.
We are very happy to see a local Winner emerge from this Competition and it was a Credit to our Social Media Manager and blog author, Robert A Williams, that the post on Facebook achieved a massive 400 shares and a reach of over 20,000 people on Facebook. If you are looking for such reach on Social Media then contact Robert.
This massive Christmas Competition was the biggest value Competition that we have held at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop and after it’s huge success and impact we will hold a similarly big Facebook Competition next year. We used an application called WooBox to pick the Winner and below is the screenshot from the pick.
Christmas appears to be happening quite late this year although in reality there are only 14 More Shopping Days until Christmas 2017. Schools are breaking up extraordinarily late for the Winter Break on Friday 22nd December 2017. Silly Billy’s will be open until 1730 Christmas Eve, and you can view Silly Billy’s opening hours over the Christmas 2017 period on the image below:
Silly Billy’s are on target to surpass the 3,000 Page Likes on Facebook as well which is a target Robert A Williams had set to reach prior to Christmas Day 2017, at the time of writing Silly Billy’s Facebook Page likes stand at 2,995 – so if you would like the Silly Billy’s Facebook Page and ask your friends to like it as well that would be great.
Coming up this week on Friday 15th December is Stubbings School Christmas Fayre
If you are a local school or organisation, and you wish us to mention any event that you have happening at any time of year then please message us through our Facebook Page and we will endeavour to list your event on our amazingly popular Facebook page and perhaps on this fantastic blog as well ! Simply contact Silly Billy’s Toy Shop.
We have sledges at Silly Billy’s and it is snowing today and expected to snow more overnight so please come and get your sledges from us. If you have children at Calder High School then don’t forget to check Calder High School’s website here for details of whether the school will be open in the snowy conditions that may be around tomorrow (Monday 11th December 2017)

Kaloo Plush at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop
Silly Billy’s has been trading in Hebden Bridge for twenty years and for many of those years we have been a stockist of Plush Kaloo cuddly gifts suitable from birth upwards. These specially crafted and very plush teddies and rabbits are lovingly made in France to a super high standard and make for suitable gifts for new-borns, toddlers and even older children.
We would like it if you would come and visit Silly Billy’s to view our amazing range of Kaloo suitable for new borns as birth gifts or christening gifts, suitable for older children as well due to their very plush nature. Kaloo are not the only range we stock of toys or gifts suitable for new borns, we also are a stockist of the amazing Sophie la Girafe, as endorsed by many celebrities and also some members of the author’s own family.
We are very proud to say that we have in fact been stocking Kaloo at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop since Kaloo started their business in 1998, Silly Billy’s Toy Shop starting up in Hebden Bridge one year before.
Once upon a time…
A father’s dream to invent different soft toys for his little boy. A little bear, an emotional symbol for all toddlers, was then chosen as the brand’s emblematic animal. Because dreams can come true, Kaloo came to life one beautiful morning in late 1998.
2001 was the next milestone for Kaloo Plush
Kaloo around the world
After a successful launch in the European market with high quality products, Kaloo became a reference brand for upscale birth gifts. The rapid development of the brand was supported by the creation of Kaloo North America in 2001.
The range Kaloo 123 was launched in 2001 with the aim of making childhood a little more of a dream. Colorful and mischievous, it was created to awaken baby’s senses.
Kaloo perfumes (please note we do not stock perfumes at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop)
« Kaloo Parfums » was launched in spring 2001, composed of four alcohol free fragrances specially made to stimulate baby’s sense of smell.
Have you followed Silly Billy’s Toy Shop on Facebook yet, lots of products that are new are shown there first ??
