Our first web order from Turkey is winging its way to one soon-to-be happy customer. Sometimes wish we could deliver these ones by hand.

We have all the latest Transformers. Why not get some today for Xmas. Remember we have a Xmas club you can join.

Working from home today as I'm more bunged up than the M25 on a Bank Holiday. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow. :-/

Listening to 1980s and 1990s love songs in the shop today and bizarrely me and all the customers know all the words! Toy shop karaoke???
