Full competition details of the AirBNB and LEGO house stay are on Airbnb’s site here

Obviously, if you win you will need some travelling money and also the cost of the flights to Denmark. I would recommend a few nights in Copenhagen as well as I have been and it is an interesting place, steeped in history. Obviously the highlight will be staying in  the recently completed LEGO house.
This is what it says on the LEGO House site about the LEGO House:

LEGO® House is a newly opened experience house. The 12,000-square metre house is filled with 25 million LEGO bricks ready to give LEGO fans of all ages the ultimate LEGO experience.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be inside a real LEGO® House? That’s why we built this world of creative experiences. Discover the magic behind the brand, and the endless possibilities for play and learning with the inspiring LEGO brick.

Also known as “Home of the Brick”, the new LEGO House is located in Billund, Denmark, where the LEGO brick was invented. LEGO House is one of the main family attractions in Southern Denmark, with fun activities for children and adults of all ages. We invite you into our LEGO home for the ultimate play date!

Here at Silly Billy’s we have a wide range of LEGO for Christmas 2017 so why not come and visit us to see that and all the other great toy manufacturer’s we stock like Playmobil, Sylvanians, and TY.
We still have some LEGO and Playmobil Advent Calendars left too, so get yours quick before they run out as the stocks are dwindling each day.

One Year on and a Hexbug Competition

Competition Time is here Again – Hexbug Competition

This competition is now closed, thanks to everyone that entered. A Winner has been chosen through WooBox and they have been contacted.

To celebrate Silly Billy’s being in it’s new location for just over one year now and also to review how the past year has been for us we have decided to have a competition on Facebook where you can win our demo HexBug Track, all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to interact on Facebook with the Post below, simply like it, share it or comment on it. Any one of those actions will guarantee you entry into the competition and we will send the HexBug Track and accompanying Hexbug Nano V2 to anywhere in the world for free. Simply like, share or comment on the Facebook post below.

It is a real help to small businesses like ours if you like and follow our Social Media profiles, Silly Billy’s Toy Shop is active on Twitter and Pinterest as well as Facebook simply search for us there.

This competition will end at Midnight on Wednesday 31st May 2017

So what can we say about the last year.

It has been great, we are reaally enjoying our new location and new Toy Shop, it is similar in size to the old shop and we have changed some of our product ranges and brought in some new and exciting products like Jamie Raven’s Magic Sets and Ballon Bijoux Jewellery.
We still have all the major lines that we carried at our old location and we find that our top sellers are still Lego, Playmobil, Sylvanians and TY; with Orchard Toys and Schleich bringing up the rear. We have introduced a range of bath toys and we have done our best to vary our stock over the past year and have some exciting new products like Fidget Spinners.

As we have some outdoor space at our new shop we have a regularly changing human-size Playmobil figure, presently a Knight that we have named Arthur. We have also put our footballs (£4.66 / £2.50), fishing nets (£1), umbrellas (£3.99), hula-hoops (£1.99) and windmills (£1) outside, giving us more room to stock the inside of the shop with all our exciting new and innovative products.

Lego Christmas Competition

Lego Christmas Competition- THE BIG ONE

This Competition has now ended.

Forget #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, here at Silly Billy’s this 2016 you can obtain some amazing Lego prizes for only 180 seconds or less of your time,
interested? Then read on…

The Advent Calendar Competition had some good results for Silly Billy’s gaining a greater number of likes on Facebook. As most folk who use Facebook know, Facebook is the largest Social Media Site on the planet and as Social Marketeers, and Internet Marketeers like Robert A Williams know, Facebook has the biggest impact on raising brand awareness and helping the general visibility of a business, in this case Silly Billy’s Toy Shop

So this Christmas Competition is basically after the same goal as the last competition:-
Please could you, if you haven’t already done so, like Silly Billy’s on Facebook and also fill out this very simple form.

This whole process should take you no longer than 180 seconds we think

So what if you have already liked Silly Billy’s on Facebook, can you still enter ?
YES – You can, all you need to do is one of the following:-

Our preference would be if you could like Silly Billys Facebook Page, though if you have already done that in the past then any one of the above actions, joining the mailing list; following Silly billy’s on Pinterest or Twitter; would gain you entry into this amazing competition.
At the time of writing our goal is to achieve 2000 page likes before the end of this year (2016) and this is how we are doing so far:
Facebook Page Likes

This, like the last Advent Calender Competition, is a very simple competition, follow/like/or join our mailing list, all entries will be included in the mailing list anyway as we often notify people of competitions and news like this when we are able. AND, very importantly, Please fill out this form to enable us to track who has entered the competition.

Now onto the good bit, what can you win.
Well this year we are not holding back, we have two Lego Set’s available to the potential Winner and the Winner can decide which one to have !
This is the choice, you can WIN either a Lego Friends 4119 Heartlake Cupcake Cafe or a Lego Ninjago 70592 Salvage M.E.C
Lego Christmas Competition 2016

This competition will close on the night of Monday 19th December 2016, you must provide a valid email address on this form so that we can contact you and tell you that you have won. If the winner does not reply within 48 hrs of the competition closing on 19/12/2016 then it is unlikely that they will receive their prize before Christmas because the last day of Christmas Posting in the UK  is on Wednesday 21st December 2016. We will post your prize FOC to UK standard rate postal zones.

It has been noted that despite Silly Billy’s moving almost nine months ago now, people still do not know where we are !! It is very easy to find us, we are on Old Gate in Hebden Bridge, in the new building next to the river and we are next door to the amazing Homely at Hebden who have a lot of exciting gifts for you this Christmas, and have created a fantastic Christmas Window Display, come in and see us today !

Homely Abode Christmas Window 2016

Homely at Hebden, Christmas Window 2016

If you need more details or even a map of how to get to us or Homely at Hebden then go here:
www.sillybillystoyshop.com/map-silly-billys/

The Small Print
If you want to enter this fantastic Lego Christmas Competition from outside the UK then that is fine, however, we would point out that we will ask you to contribute towards the postage of your prize, which could be up to £15 for anyone entering from New Zealand and also that you will not receive your prize until the new year in 2017. We will send you PayPal request for postage should you win from outside of the United Kingdom

Posted by Silly Billy’s Toy Shop on Wednesday, 23 November 2016

In recent years we have held competitions in the run up to Christmas and this year we are holding two. The first competition is to win an Advent Calendar and entries will close Midnight (GMT) on Tuesday 22nd November, this gives plenty of time for the Advent Calendar to reach you by Post.

This competition is only open to UK Residents and we cannot post to overseas locations so please don’t enter if you want your Advent Calendar posted outside of the United Kingdom you won’t receive it

Entry is absolutely free and is subject to the entrant doing two things which should take no longer than a couple of minutes.

You can win either a Bayala Advent Calendar:

bayala advent calendars

Or a Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar

You must complete both of these tasks to be in with a chance of winning:

  1. Like Silly Billy’s Facebook Page: simply head over to Silly Billy’s Facebook and give us a like
  2. Enter the Facebook name that you liked us with and your email address on this form

NB By submitting your email above you may periodically receive a newsletter or marketing email from us, however this is easy enough to unsubscribe afterwards if you wish to.
Without a valid email address you will not be able to enter the competition so please don’t just like our Facebook page without filling in this form as well

Once you have completed the two tasks above your email address will be kept on file and we will email the WINNER on Wednesday 23rd November to ask for your physical mailing address, if you are local to Hebden Bridge you can obviously come and collect your Prize.

Consequently, make sure you can access your email on Wednesday 23rd November.

Please tell your friends and share this competition if you would be so kind.
