Boris the T Rex, the prize you'll receive if you winThis week we decided to spread our dinosaur train colouring competition out to include adults, the prize up for grabs is a box of malteasers for the most creative picture, so get your thinking caps on and your crayons/pencils/paints out if you’re even remotely a fan of chocolate. You can get a sheet over on our web site by clicking the link to the pdf file and printing it out. Remember to write your name and contact details on the back so that we can let you know if you’re a winner.

Harry Potter and the rise of fantasyJohn’s blog post last week announced that we’ve decided on next month’s theme in the shop. October will be ‘Fantasy and Magic Month’, and we’re all pretty excited about it. One of the main things we’re trying to get feedback on is what the word ‘fantasy’ means to you and also what (if anything) the staff should dress up as for a couple of weekends in October. Please share your ideas in the comments section below.

non girly craft sets boys craft for allAnother ‘event’ has been our attempts to make our craft section on our web site less ‘girly’. We came across a few people on twitter who were having trouble finding non-girly crafts to interest boys. In store we’ve always done as much as we could to keep the craft section open to all and it seems to be working fine. That said we noticed that the packaging/stock photos that you can see online weren’t always the best at showing off the fact that crafts are for all. To try and deal with this John took a pile of activity packs out for a wee photo shoot on Thursday and uploaded some new product onto the web site, you can see the result here. Let us know what you think, should we do some more ‘photo shoots’ to show off our toys?

kingsgatehalloween-haunted-houseWe’re already feeling the strain of preparing for Christmas, but before our toys are whisked up to the North Pole in preparation for the big day, there are loads of other things to prepare for. In October we’re set to attend two stall events, one big two-day event with West Fife baby and Toddlers through in Dunfermline (18th and 19th) and one Halloween themed event at the Community Campus in Crieff the following week (26th). Both of these sound like they’ll be exciting and entertaining. Apparently it’s ‘onesie day’ at the Dunfermline event so whoever is manning the stall that day will be expected to get into the spirit of the thing. Also the Halloween event at the Strathearn Community Campus looks to be packed full of things for everyone.

Well that’s our report of the week here at Fun Junction, keep in touch and remember to sign up for e-mail updates from us by popping your e-mail address into the box on the right.
