Breyer Mid Year Shipments
Our Breyer Mid Year Horses arrived at our store after we left for BreyerFest. We are located on the opposite end of the country from Breyer and it takes a few extra days for shipments to reach us. The Breyer Mid Year Releases that we had at BreyerFest were shipped directly to our hotel. Due to flight delays, I returned home from BreyerFest a day behind schedule on Tuesday, July 17th. The Mid Year Releases were waiting for me 🙂 I will begin processing orders tonight and aim to have everything shipped by the end of the week. Please note that it’s just me working the store and shipping orders this week. Hubby, Aidan and the BreyerFest Horses are still on their way home. Thank you to all that preordered through us, please watch for your shipment notification. Thank you everyone!

A soft cushion of foam surrounding the edge of the disk protects furniture from damage. This toy is suitable for indoor or outdoor play. Requires four AA batteries (not included). There are two different power on/off switches for the disk; one for the light show, the other for power.
You need to try out a fun new twist on the classic Frisbee. The Beamo Flying Hoop provides hours of active outdoor fun. This lightweight hoop is fun to use and can fly for more than 100 feet. The hoop’s soft foam ring and spandex sleeve is both safe to use and durable, designed to stand up under hours of intense play. The Beamo Flying Hoop helps develop hand-eye coordination and keeps kids on the move.
Have you heard about the Airzooka? Destined to become a classic, Airzooka is a unique hand held device that, when operated, blows a harmless “ball of air” towards any object or person. Laugh with amusement as, seemingly from nowhere, you are able to mess up someone’s hair, ruffle their shirt or just plain blow them away.
This product is one of the most unique products we have seen and gets a laugh whenever we show it. Airzooka makes a great gift item for kids of all ages. Requiring no batteries or electricity, Airzooka operates simply by pulling and releasing a built-in elastic air launcher. Airzooka also features a pop-up site for improved accuracy. Take aim at your friends during a lively game of Air Tag, or simply try your luck at indoor target practice. And here’s the best part: because it shoots air, you’ll never run out of fun.

Breyer Dundee 2018 Premier Club Special Run
Meet Dundee, the second release in the Breyer 2018 Premier Club. He is a spectacular dunalino pinto Australian Stock Horse. He was sculpted by Nikki Button and what a magnificent job Nikki did for Breyer on her very first sculpt for them! Dundee is performance friendly and is sure to be a performance shower’s dream.
As with Breyers other Premier Club reveal pictures, these photos are of the original resin. The plastic version will undoubtedly have its differences as it will be mass produced. The Breyer Premier Club Duende caused quite a stir over what the prototype looked like and how the production piece turned out. You can see pictures of the prototype Duende in my original Duende Blog Post. I was admittedly disappointed with Breyer’s execution of Duende but Breyer absolutely blew it out of the park with Bristol. I have high hopes for Dundee (not to be confused with Duende, eck)!
I anticipate that Dundee will ship in August. While he is beautiful, I don’t envision myself keeping this one and my personal copy of Dundee will likely be for sale. None the less, I’m quite excited about Dundee’s impending release!

Breyer Jackpot & Woodford – BreyerFest 2018 Raffle Models
Breyer reposted the pictures of two of the BreyerFest 2018 Raffle models. Only 25 of each will be raffled off with 1 additional made for the auction. The first model is Woodford, the new Shire Gelding mold sculpted by Karen Gerhardt in a beautiful silver dapple pinto.
The second model is the brand new Breyer Premier Club Bristol mold in a spectacular chestnut leopard appaloosa. I just love this one (and Woodrow too!)
Here is what the BreyerFest Blog had to say about Woodford and Jackpot.
Over the last 28 years of BreyerFest, we have raised over $1,100,000 for charity! And it’s all thanks to our Breyer Fans!
The contributions came from the money raised in the Silent Auction, Live Auction, and the Breyer Benefit Raffles. Last year alone, more than $85,000 was donated to a wide variety of causes close to our heart.
As usual, we’re hoping for the biggest year ever. But we need your help!
There are several great ways you can contribute to our amazing beneficiaries!
Breyer Benefit Raffle
You’ve already met the Saturday and Sunday Benefit Raffles horses, Woodford and Jackpot. Each of the beautiful models is limited to 26 pieces (25 models for the Raffle and 1 model in the Live Auction). Our lucky winners will certainly be lucky to take home either of these handsome horses.
