Reviews and Exciting News

Trip Advisor Reviews

As it says all over the Trip Advisor blurb and elsewhere on the internet, Trip Advisor is the Number One Reviews site. The reasons for this are simple:-

  • Site layout and mobile application both have great UX (User eXperience)
  • Internal search is friendly
  • Incentives to write reviews for reviewers is excellent

Back in 2015 the web manager of Silly Billy’s (Robert A Williams) tried to list Silly Billy’s Toy Shop on Tripadvisor and at the time this was not possible, this was Trip Advisor’s response:

Hello,
Thank you for submitting this property to TripAdvisor.
We’re sorry, but we were unable to verify that the property meets our listing guidelines from the information provided.

However, since 2015 there have been some changes in Trip Advisor listing Criteria and following on from discovering that our lovely neighbours, Homely at Hebden, had managed to create their own Trip Advisor profile, see here, we again submitted a request to Trip Advisor to list our own Toy Shop. This time we were successful ! Here, you can find Silly Billy’s on Trip Advisor

Building Up To Christmas 2016

Building Up To Christmas 2016

The period leading up to Christmas is always very busy for us here at Silly Billy’s and this year is our first Christmas in our new Retail Unit at Old Gate House, Old Gate, Hebden Bridge, HX7 6EN. Logistically in our new space we have less storage than we used to which means that we have to be quite prudent with Christmas orders and delivery schedules.

Since our last post we have increased the amount of Playmobil we have and we also have Playmobil 6624 Advent Calendars to compliment the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendars, and for the first time we have Playmobil 5497 Advent Calendars suitable for our very young shoppers.

Other Playmobil new in are the Playmobil Summer Fun Campers

Here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop we believe we have the best range of Playmobil anywhere in the North of England, and this has been verified by customers in the past who have complimented us on our range. So if you are looking for any Playmobil then please give us a call as we can always look to get products in from Playmobil which we may not have in stock.

Hex Bugs are back

The Hex Bugs range is new to us here at Silly Billy’s and has been hugely popular, we were running low and have recently been re-stocked with Nano’s, Nano V2’s and track, everything you need for great Hex Bug Fun and Chaos, more on Hex Bugs here
