The last time I posted about Christmas it was late September and the festive season still seemed a good way off. But how time flies! Two months have whizzed past and we’re now firmly in midst of xmas shopping madness.
Somehow my thoughts of putting up a post in early November seem to have gone out of the window, but I still thought it was worth putting together a few biggish present gift ideas for the big day.
All of the products below, plus many more besides can be found in our new Christmas Toys category on the website. However, be warned things are moving very fast stock-wise. What we have now may well be all gone by next week!
Remember FREE standard UK Shipping with worldwide and expedited options available. Happy shopping!

We originally made a You Tube video almost 5 years ago when our own website was launched. Having noticed that this was still showing up on Google we decided it was time for an upgrade. So here it is!
The new vid definitely shows the range of products we currently have in 2014. Give it a watch and let us know what you think!
The video was created using Windows Movie Maker and it is basically made up of product images from our website plus captions and a few extra graphics. It was interesting to compare the content between the old and new videos. Although some generic categories had not changed – Toy Guns, Knights, Cowboys, Army etc – almost all the individual products had. Perhaps not surprising after 5 years! Completely new however were most of the branded products so far discussed in this blog – Nerf, Megabloks, Hello Kitty, Monster High and Papo Figures.
We are quite pleased with the background music was downloaded from a royalty free site. There are also a few bonus sound effects for those who watch it through right to the end!

I must admit that Comaco Toys Direct has not generally gone in for more girl orientated toys in the past. As a male and the principal buyer I have tended to purchase things that would have appealed to me when I was younger, and the fact that I have two sons and no daughters has compounded this further. In fact I once had a long conversation with a rep from one of our suppliers who argued that girls’ toys were generally a weakness in the industry as so many buyers were men. I think far too often there is a tendency to assume that anything pink or fluffy will do.
This range of Monster High dolls is a little bit different in that, although they are feminine and fashion conscious, they are far from cute and conventional. We have eight different dolls with distinct horrific but stylish personalities. All are approx 28 cm high and fully articulated. They come with great outfits and a full range of accessories. The Scaris City of Frights Range has Ghoulia Yelps, Draculaura, Deuce Gorgon and Abbey Bominable, whilst the Ghouls Rule range includes Frankie Stein, Cleo de Nile, Clawdeen Wolf and an alternative Draculaura. As always we offer secure online checkout with Sagepay and free standard UK shipping on all orders
