UK Indie Shop Spotlight…Figureland

There are many wonderful things in life (like getting into a freshly made bed or having your first brew of the day) but one of my loves is finding a small independent local business that specialises in toys and general geekery. We all enjoy a trip to Toys R Us or Smyths Toys, but nothing beats a local business run by somebody who genuinely cares. So I wanted to find these shops, and spread the word.

Each month I’m going to buy from a small UK shop, and grade it on certain criteria. At the end of the day, if we’re buying Funko Pops online, we want to make sure we’re getting the absolute best. Especially when it comes to price, variety & packaging.

The ‘audit’ is based on my own personal experience, and the aim is help spread the word. You should always buy locally, and if I can help more people do that, then I absolutely will.

So, who’s first up? A company by the name of Figureland so let’s see how they did.
