Cap Guns and News

In the midst of a strange and uneasy election result Silly Billy’s can report some new and exciting product lines, including Cap Guns

For a long long time, due to some odd legal requirements, we have not stocked Cap Gun’s here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop. Recently we have some new additions to our Toy Lines and these include some quality Cap Guns at a great price of only £2.99 and we also sell Caps for the Guns at only £1, see images below.

Cap Guns – £2.99         Caps – £1.00

Fidget Spinners are still a hit and to celebrate their ongoing success we are offering a Special Deal until Sunday 11th June 2017 at 17:00 where you can come in and buy three fidget spinners for only £10 when the retail price is £4.99 each, saving you a massive £4.97. What can you do with three Fidget Spinners? Simple, just create a Fidget Spinner Three Stack like we have in the video below.

The only small caveat (that’s been a pretty well-used adjective recently) to this is that to redeem the Special Offer of Three Fidgets for a Tenner (£10), then please like the Facebook post below:

The election has been monopolising the News recently so as a change I would like to just give a short review of the latest Baywatch Movie which turned out to be much more amusing and entertaining than I expected.

Baywatch 2017 was a satirical take on the Baywatch series that was running from 1989 to 1999 in various guises staring the wonderful David Hasselhoff as Mitch and Pamela Stevenson as CJ. Both these actors made Guest Appearances and it should be said that Pamela has aged far better than David, or maybe she has had far more disposable income to spend on cosmetic surgery? So the new film had a semi-plausible plot line, some very funny one-liners and overall was pretty well acted overall, so when Baywatch comes to the Hebden Bridge Picture House then Robert A Williams, Author of this blog and many others, recommends that you go and see it.

Adam from Playmobil has been busy erecting this exciting new Window Display yesterday afternoon and you can come and see it any time of day in the Window of Silly Billy’s Toy Shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 6EN.

We have already written a detailed blog post on the exciting new Playmobil Ghostbusters range, so rather than continue along that same vein we thought it would be a good idea to mention some of the Exciting New products that we have in the World’s Foremost Independent Toy Shop, these include some new Lego Technic to mark Lego’s 40th Anniversary of the Lego Technic Range. We now have four Lego Technic Models in stock:

  • 42044 – Display Team Jet

  • 42058 – Stunt Bike
  • 42057 – Ultralight Helicopter

We have a limited supply of Lego Classic Building Boards so if you are after any of them then please get down to Silly Billy’s quickly.

We also have some new Lego City in stock so please pop in and have a look.

We are auctioning of some of our end of line Lego Batman and Lego Star Wars sets so if you are interested in obtaining some cheap Lego please keep an eye on Silly Billy’s Independent EBay Shop

Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes

The ever popular Fidget Spinners are back in stock again and we have three varrieties, all at £4.99. Due to logistics and supply chain we have once again a rather short supply of Fidget Spinners so if you want one then we recommend you come down to Silly Billy’s in Hebden Bridge as soon as is humanly possible. We also ran out of Fidget Cubes and recently have been re-stocked on those as well, so we now have both black and white coloured Fidget Cubes at £5.99 each.

Fidget Spinners – You asked for them?

Thanks to my chiildren in the first instance for drawing our attention to Fidget Spinners, it has taken a while for us to source some high quality Fidget Spinners also known as Finger Fidgets or Finger Spinners.

Could Fidget Spinenrs be as big as the last massive craze at Silly Billy’s which was Loom Bands. Loom Bands took off like the proverbial forest fire in the Summer of 2014 and we could not literally keep up with demand.
Our Phone has been ringing already this morning with enquires about Fidget Spinners and whether we have them in stock and yes we certainly do and they are priced very competitively at only £3.99 each.
We have high quality fidget spinners with decnt bearings  priced at only £3.99, when comparing this to the ones I bought at a major online retailer ten days ago for my teenage children at £7.99 I now feel relatively ripped off by the online retailer in question. (Begins with an A)

“What are Fidget Spinners ?” I hear you ask

At the most basic a fidget spinner is very easy to use. It is, as you can likely guess, a little widget that spins. Usually the mechanism for this is a single bearing with a bigger balanced structure that extends out around the outside of that bearing. So, when you put the bearing on your finger, you can spin it freely- this is all stabilized with help from the gyroscopic action. Obviously if you want to keep things simple, just pinch the bearing and spin with ease. It keeps your hands hectic, and it’s fantastic if you are of a fiddly disposition. My teenage son reckons that having a fidget spinner helps him with the non-biting of his nails.

Fidget Spinners have taken off in production and they range in price from the quite absurd versions made of Titanium like the Rotablade Stubby (also doubles as a cigar stand!) which retails at around £110 to cheaper plastic versions. We have one such high quality plastic version here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop at the excellent price of only £3.99 and available in blue, red and black colours.

More history on Fidget Spinners

So you may not know that this craze is stems from a Kickstarter project which had aimed to raise a realtively small amount of capital for a Fidget cube project for adult use in the office and has now raised $6,465,690 with 154,926 backers pledged!!
