Half Term in Looe


I decided to take the ferry to work this morning from West Looe across the river to East Looe instead of walking around via the bridge. Such a relaxing way to start the day even though it only takes a few minutes but at just 40p its something that you must do while you are here. Ferrymen have been going to and fro the harbour for as long as I can remember and are as much a part of Looe as the pasties and ice-cream. Many of the the fishing boats are heading out to sea today taking the ever optimistic fisherman out in the hope of catching a big one. Some will be going to the reefs, some to deep water marks such as the Eddystone Lighthouse and others just having a couple hours fun catching mackerel. If you enjoy anything to do with the sea and boating than you can find it in Looe. They may not be as big but can be great fun for the children so why not check out our range of boats. Its also the start of the half term here this weekend and I know that most of the holiday parks around Looe are full this week and no doubt there will be a few Christmas presents being bought, so if you are looking for more traditional toys then pop into Toyday and I am sure you will find some great ideas.

A Glorious Day in Looe


Well its another glorious day here in Looe and the town is still buzzing with visitors making the most of the weather that we should of had in the summer. I have a 15 minute walk along the harbour and riverside from where I park my car to get to the shop and it was a pleasure wandering along to the sights and sounds of boats and seagulls this morning. It just doesn't seem like going to work.
Its quite amusing having customers coming into the shop wearing shorts and flip flops buying stocking fillers and picking out toys to buy for Christmas presents whilst at the same time buying items from our range of beach toys and then heading for a day on the seafront.
Everyone that has come in seems to be enjoying themselves here in Looe and I always have time to answer their questions about best beach, cafe, coastal walk, fishing spot etc.
At the end of this month the schools are on half term and during the week I hope to have Kay in the shop again doing hair braiding for the children, and some adults wanted it done last time as well. Great for parties, so if you are holidaying around here or maybe not been to Looe for a while then do try to make a visit and pop in and see us at Toyday in Buller Street.

What A 2 Year Old Boy Would choose


It's not often most children can be let loose in a shop to play with what ever their hearts desire. Blake is one lucky boy to be able to do it, no holds barred. So what did he choose.....

First off he went straight to the balls. What is it about boys and football? Once they've all been thrown out of their basket and boxes. He's on the move again and oh yes typical boy straight to the cars. He played with some pull back diecast tractors sending them off across the shop.

Blake found a guitar and had a couple of strums before he spotted the Jack in a Box. He loves jack in the boxes and is a pro at turning the handle. He doesn't call it a Jack in a Box though, he call's it a 'Boo' because that's the best bit for him, when the lid pops up and he gets to shout "BOO".

He then found his other favourite toy, the marble run, and pulled it down to endlessly put the marbles back up the top to watch them roll down the track.

With play time over we grabbed a balloon and the Jack in a Box and headed back to the office.

They just want you to "click through" their site, so that they can earn a referral commission. We don't feel that that is good honest business, and we would rather save our loyal customers money than give it away to dishonest coupon websites.
