It may have escaped your attention but unicorns seem to be in vogue right now. They are often pink, they have long manes, even longer eyelashes and some even have wings (wasn’t that Pegasus?)
Anyway we have a range of toys from Ozbozz to satisfy your horned horse habit – including scooters, hoppers, bowling sets, plushies and and even tubs of glittery stretchy unicorn poo!

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.
We’re into November and the Christmas runup is in full steam. As a bonus for our shoppers this season we have a special offer.
Every order over £30 value (excluding shipping) will get a free boxed fidget spinner while stocks last. These are good quality heavy duty 7.5 cm tri spinners that come in a range of colours. They are bound to make a very attractive extra stocking filler on the big day. See our link http://www.comacotoys.com/Free-Fidget-Spinners for full details of the offer. Runs until 25th December 2017.
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.

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:

We love stocking Papo figures. Not only is quality guaranteed but you can always count on some exciting new additions to the range each year.
We’ve made posts before on Dinosaurs and Knights, so I thought it was high time to highlight the fabulous Marine Life range. Especially since we have recently received three brand new figures for 2016; the Sperm Whale, the Sawfish and the Narwhal. These are now added to the impressive collection of sea creatures available.
The two whales in the range come in at an impressive 30 cm in length and are heavy duty toys. However all the toys – larger or smaller – are fabulously detailed. For an idea of this click on the pictures below; my favourite is the octopus, but I am sure you will have your own! Full dimensions and pricing for each can be found on the main website links.

This is something of a departure for us. We have never particularly gone in for plush toys before, apart from a few Ty Beanies way back. However as a former primary teacher, the use of puppets was one of my stock in trades. I always found them a great way to get younger children engaged, whatever the topic.
And so it was when of our reps offered us this range of luxury plush hand puppets we decided to take to take the plunge. The clincher was quality; they really are lovely to the touch. Also the 20 different models available offer a wealth of choice, and the potential to make up the dramatis personae of any drama you might wish to present with them.
The puppets are produced by Trudi of Italy, already a well known name in the world of plush toys. If these puppets do as well as we hope, then you might well see more of Trudi’s range stocked by Comaco in the near future! Continue reading

There’s obviously no need to tell you about the huge hype which surrounded the release of Star Wars The Force Awakens in late 2015. As far I could tell 40 somethings, whose childhoods were indelibly coloured by the original three films seemed to be at least as enthusiastic as anyone from the younger generations.
Needless to say a whole slew of toys and other tie in products have been released. The more cynical amongst us might even wonder if potential merchandising sales were not a major factor behind the new films being produced at all. Having said that The Force Awakens had good reviews and certainly met with broad approval from my family (despite some rather obvious retreading of A New Hope).
Leaving aside the film review, we got some Hasbro Star Wars toys in last November, and our range has been supplemented in trickles ever since. Basically we now have 12″ figures, 12″ figure and vehicle sets, 3.75″ figures and light sabres. Judging by sales, Kylo Ren seems to be the character everyone wants – small Kylo Ren figures and Kylo Ren light sabres all sold out within days of getting them in.
