Castle Challenge Summer Activities!

We had some brilliant fun at the shop yesterday as we embarked on a Castle Challenge! Scholastic have kindly sent us some excellent castle building kits, from their Chicken Socks range and they were a big hit.

We had moments of people's pieces all getting mixed-up and looking for that piece that has stone and grass on, but Emily was able to smoothly host the event with lots of enthusiasm.

Thank you to Hannah Welsh at Scholastic for the great kits and to everyone who came along.

We have a range of Chicken Socks and Klutz books avaialble in the shop, a superb range of activity books for the everyone.

Tintin - The Golden Treasury Mystery

Did you know we stock the official Tintin merchandise? Aside from the wide selection of books, we also stock a range of posters, collectible figures, Snowy soft toys, greeting cards and the famous red and white rocket!

We held a Tintin event in the shop for the local fans and we were so impressed with the fancy-dress entries, it was hard to choose winners. Some of the brilliant entries are shown here in their finest action poses.

Together we wrote our own special story called, The Golden Treasury Mystery. Thankfully after sightings of aliens, numerous renditions of 'Jingle Bells' and surviving on just chips - Tintin solved the mystery!

Thank you to everyone who came along, it was so much fun and nice to see lots of dads coming and still enjoying the adventures of Tintin.
