Sorry about the images of the best craft toys, I had already uploaded them before realising they needed rotating!!

Whilst we were putting out our new range of Galt best craft toys, which are located at the rear of the toy shop, we noticed that Galt had been established since 1836 so doing a little more research on the company we discovered that James Galt & Co. Ltd. has been established for over 180 years. James Galt himself was born at Stewarton in Ayrshire and then set up as an educational stockist in Manchester in 1836.
In the 1850s the company expanded into printing and publishing and in 1957 the company moved from Manchester to Cheadle in Cheshire. In 1961 the Galt Toys division was formed and so there is a lot of history for Galt.

Aquabeads at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop

Aquabeads at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop

Aquabeads were introduced to Silly Billy’s Toy Shop this year (2017), although many many years ago, before the author of this blog started working there, Silly Billy’s were an Aquabead stockist.
So what are Aquabeads, exactly?
Aquabeads are a craft toy or gift which can be easily used to create breath-taking designs with the simple addition of water (H2O)

Hints & Tips for using Aquabeads

  • When beads do not stick properly, spray some more water on the back of the design and leave to dry.
  • When the back of a bead design is not glossy, spray some more water on the back and leave to dry.
  • If your bead design starts to bend, place the design under a heavy magazine or book and leave it there for a while.
  • If the bead design breaks, simply reassemble and spray with water.

These are the Aquabeads Kits that we have in stock at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop
