“I’ll have one of everything, please.” Yep, Totally Awesome is one of those shops where you could easily go a little bit bonkers! Lisa and Aamir have created an Aladdin’s cave of weird and wonderful toys, games and gadgets, with everything from magic kits and drones from £26 right through to retro gems like Space Hoppers, Rubik’s Cubes and Slinky springs.
For active outdoor fun there’s a great selection including kites, every type of throwing toy (ones for dogs too!) and top-quality scooters from must-have brand, Chilli. Or how about garden skittles, a slackline, or a water blaster for zapping your noisy neighbour. Into Skateboarding? No problem, you can choose from all those brands you’ve never heard of but your kids love, like Element, Fracture, Toy Machine and Flip.
Bored of board games? Think again. At Totally Awesome you can grab a super-cool themed Monopoly set, or the hilarious new best-seller, Dobble, which doesn’t even need a board –perfect for taking on holiday. There’s plenty here for pocket money too, like slime, yo-yos, and the legendary Crazy Aaron’s putty in mind-blowing varieties like magnetic! Even the local grandparents are calling in for hula-hoops to help them keep fit. Need a fix of fun while you’re out and about in Halifax? Don’t worry, there’s another Totally Awesome in the Piece Hall at Halifax. Bingo!
