Christmas Toys at Comaco

Thick snow on the ground today and we’re at the very height of the Christmas rush. I’m just coming up for air long enough to tell you about some of our recommended best selling Christmas Toys that we currently still have in stock. A small selection is shown in the image below.

Robert the Bruce and William Wallace Papo Figures

Well here’s something quite exciting. Papo have now delivered two new historical figurines that take us back to 13th and 14th Century Scotland. In fact these are arguably Scotland’s two greatest heroes from the Wars of Independence – King Robert the Bruce, victor of Bannockburn, and Guardian of Scotland William Wallace, who kicked English butt at Stirling Bridge.

As you’d expect with Papo they are high quality figures with superb detail. So what are you waiting for?

“…for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.”

Declaration of Arbroath 1320.

Christmas Toys from Schleich

Another post after a very long gap!

So it’s late October; leaves are falling, days are shortening, ghouls and bonfires are close at hand, dancing is on the telly and the mother of all festivals is just around the corner.

This year I took advantage of special Christmas offers by both of our high quality figure suppliers – Papo and Schleich – for some of their larger toy sets.

More about Papo will follow in a later post, but for now I thought I’d tell you about the “Christmas pallet” from Schleich. This arrived last week caused some excitement chez Comaco.

This includes 9 different boxed sets from the Wildlife, Dinosaurs, Farm World and Horse Club ranges. The highlight is perhaps the Jungle Research Crocodile Set, but there are plenty more to choose from. Click on the links below to go to detailed descriptions of each set.

Active Content in Ebay Listings

Hi all.

Many apologies for 6 months without a post. That really is pretty awful.

Earlier this month I attended the Toymaster fair in Harrogate where it was good to hook up with many of our suppliers once again. We now have lots of new stock flooding in so expect a flurry of new posts on these in the near future.

Some friends from Toymaster 2017

Firstly a quick mention of the current craze everyone is talking about – fidget spinners. You will probably be aware that they come in all shapes and sizes. Ours are fairly basic in design, but are heavy and very good spinners with a nice smooth action. Check them out here. Continue reading

Here’s to 2017

2017

Sorry, there’s been no new posts for a while, but it’s been a very busy couple of months. A Chinese factory just sent me this, so I thought I’d share it with you.

Posh Paws Plush Toys at Comaco

A new line we added earlier this year was this fantastic range of branded soft toys from Posh Paws. These are all characters from popular movies in plush toy form and they come in 3 sizes. Small at around 7″, regular at 10″, or extra large at a massive 20″. We had buy new bags in specially to ship the big ones!

We have a range of fun characters from 3 film franchises so far – Star Wars, Marvel Avengers and Finding Dory. Why not start a collection? Here is small selection of what we have in stock:

Toymaster Show Harrogate 2016

These are exciting times for Comaco Toys. We have more suppliers, more lines and more stock than ever before in our history. A couple of weeks saw me heading south to Harrogate for our first visit to the Toymaster show at the Majestic Hotel.

After experiencing the less subtle delights of the London Toy Fair and NEC Spring Show, it was something a relief to find that this was a slightly lower key and less formal event. This is largely due to it being a trade only fair with only fairly limited stand space for the exhibitors.

The venue for the Toymaster show

After a long drive from the north of Scotland, I arrived early afternoon and gave myself a good hour or two to recaffeinate and aclimatise. My pre-booked appointments were all for the following day, so the afternoon was free to browse and explore.

Mutant Ninja Turtles were on display at GP Flair, as well as Shopkins – currently a big seller. Teletubbies (which I once wrote a dissertation on) were making a reappearance at a couple of stands, and Paw Patrol and Angry Birds also had a definite presence. Super Hero Girls looked the business at Mattel.

H Grossman had a range Of Ghostbusters tie ins to come out later in the year, and I had already earmarked Posh Paws Ltd with its range of movie related plush toys. A little different was Stikbot from Brainstorm: fun figures with suction arms and feet who are designed to make simple stop motion animation using a mobile phone app.
