Unusual Toys

Unusual Toys

Not So Much Unusual Toys

Rather Toys You May Find Unusual for us to have here

Some easy build, clip together model kits that come with paint and a brush and require no glue. Easy and fund to build, these kits have proved popular and at only £4.99 are a steal. They are great fun to build and the parts simply snap together, a sharp knife to get them off of the sprue. They clip together with ease and look great painted up, there are some images below for you to enjoy:

Batman Minifigures – Progress

  • Vacation Batman™
  • The Joker™ – Arkham Asylum
  • Dick Grayson™
  • Nurse Harley Quinn™
  • Orca™
  • The Calculator™
  • King Tut™
    Batman Minifigs

This is what one Lego Fan has said about the latest Lego Batman Minifigures collection:

I really like these Lego Batman Movie figures a lot here’s the one’s I was able to find first is Pink Power Batgirl I really like this figure and is a different and new verison of Batgirl which is new plus I like her pink Baterang which I really like alot, The Eraser is a cool figure plus I like how he resembles a pencil which is very cool Nurse Harley Quinn I like alot and at first I wasnt’t sure about getting her but after awhile I decided I did and she is very cute plus I like her clipboard with the Joker and on the side it reads H & J, Orca is one of my favorites and for me finding him was the hardest but I really like how he looks just like a Killer Whale with the color and plus he goes great with the Shark Suit Guy from series 15 and last is March Harriet this figure is not bad and I like her brown bunny ears and her costume with her gun but I think she goes well with the Bunny Suit Guy from Series 7. These are all excellent figures and I might think about maybe getting one of the Batman figures but overall I really like all these figures and can’t wait to see the movie next month when it comes out.

We are really excited for the release of the New Lego Batman Movie next month.

As well as Lego being Fun and Exciting with lots of characters and always changing, it is also a hugely educational Toy as well and here is an article that has been written about the Top 10 Ways Legos Are Educational for Your Child: Learning with LEGO, please give it a read.

Merry Christmas 2016

It has been a very big year for us at Silly Billy’s as many of you will know. After the floods of last year we closed down for a time and then re-opened on 25th March 2016 this year in brand new premises. Our new shop has been getting nothing but great feedback from all of the people that have visited and we honestly love it. It is a complete transformation from our old shop in the Old Mill.

We have had some staff come and go, Alex is now working down South for the Ambulance Service as a Paramedic and we wish him all the best in his career.
Finn is still with us, part-time, and looking to get a new job in his apprenticed work of Electrical Engineering so if anyone is looking for a very talented and enthusiastic electrical engineer then please get in touch and we can put you in touch with Finn. Easiest way to get in touch with us is through Silly Billy’s Facebook page or email us at:-info@sillybillystoyshop.com

Obviously Christmas is one of the busiest times for  us as a Toy Shop and this year is our First Christmas in our brand new toy shop. We have tried our utmost to cover all the bases for Christmas 2016 and we hope we have fulfilled the desires of our Customers young and old. If anyone has any feedback we are happy to receive it and you can write reviews for us on Google Plus or Facebook if you would like to. It really helps us to know what people think and if you wish for us to change anything or try and get any products in stock that you would like.
