It’s our 5th birthday and you are invited to our Spook and Gloop party

Wow, I can hardly believe that Cheshire Toy Shop is 5 years old on 31st October. So, we’re having a birthday party! As it’s Halloween, we’re having a Spook and Gloop party – and you are invited.

Five years ago we rushed to open our shop as there was a big Halloween event at Glebe Farm. So, we got the keys on 28th October and 3 days later we opened – at 5pm, just in time for the event. We had an amazing evening and haven’t looked back since.

But how we’ve grown

Since then we have outgrown our original shop and moved next door – with more shop floor space and a large stockroom with a packing area for our online sales.
We couldn’t have done it without your support so that’s why we’d love you to come and help us to celebrate.

Happy birthday to us

The Spook and Gloop party goes on all day, from 10am to 5pm, so you can drop in whenever it suits you. It’s during half term week and is FREE to attend.

We’ll have a BIG tub of slime for your children to play with – look out for the disgusting things hiding in the goo!

Top tip: We’re using Gelli Play, which is great for sensory/messy play, and hiding eyeballs, snakes and frogs. Just the thing if you are having your own Halloween party – come and have a look at our Halloween selection

Our Slucky Dip is back for our party too – it’s like a Lucky Dip, but every prize is slime! It’s £1 to take part and you dip into our witch’s cauldron to find your gooey prize.

Competition Time

Make sure you all come along in fancy dress as we’ll be choosing one person wearing our favourite costume to win a goodie bag of Halloween booty – take a look at the event on our Facebook page for full details and updates.
We’ll have Trick or Treat chocs for every child (as long as they last!)

Top tip: We are open until 5pm, so why not call in on your way to Trick or Treating or your own Halloween party. It will be nice and dark by then, as the clocks go back on Sunday, 28th October.

Harry Potter

We are hoping to have a very special visitor too – the clue is HARRY POTTER, Shhh, I can’t say any more yet, but it should make the day MAGICAL.

Living Nature Owl

I’ve set up a Harry Potter corner in the shop – it’s an Owlery, with our gorgeous selection of Living Nature owls and Harry Potter jewellery and accessories which has arrived specially for Halloween from just BE jewellery.
