This year we are fast running out of certain lines, Sylvanian’s are very popular and we have some Tree House’s left plus a selection of Sylvanian families and Sylvanian Babies.
With the forthcoming release of Star Wars Rogue One, the Lego Star Wars Rogue one models are also incredibly popular this season. We still have a good selection of Lego left here on Silly Billy’s Toy Shop Lego Wall.

Festive Fandango

It is very easy to take part in Festive Fandango so all you need do is simply spend a minimum of £5 in any shop taking part and collect a card and sticker, that includes Silly Billy’s Toy Shop. When you have 5 stickers on your card from five different local shops, you can enter the prize draw to win a large Hebden Hamper full of goodies, additionally you can enter the prize draw as many times as you like!
Follow @FestiveFandango on Twitter for more details.

Coming up in one week’s time is the Mytholmroyd Christmas Market on Saturday 26th November and Silly Billy’s Toy Shop will have a stall there, hopefully we will have some offers for you and perhaps a surprise Lucky Dip or similar.

On Friday 2nd December 2016 there is late night opening in Hebden Bridge and Silly Billy’s along with most other retailers, including the fantastic new Homely at Hebden will be open until 8pm on Friday 2nd December 2016.

Then on Saturday 3rd December there is Small Business Saturday which is an event co-ordinated to bring focus to Small Businesses all over the UK.

Also on Saturday 3rd December 2016 the AMEX Shop Small UK campaign starts which we are also a part of, simply put Amex cardholders  get £5 back when they spend £10 in any one transaction, the Shop Small Campaign has been running since 2012 and again is a real boost to small independent shops like Silly Billy’s. The Amex Shop Small Campaign lasts from 3rd December until 18th December so if all you Amex caardholders could come and do your Toy Shopping at Silly Billy’s it would be fantastic! In fact Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is the foremost Independent Toy Shop in the North of England and is the best place for Toy Shopping.
