Already, I'm wheezing with laughter. His toys are truly incredible!

Because of this, I feel like we should give him ideas!

Use this thread to post toy ideas that would fit right in with The Unsettling Toymaker!

Things he already has, in case you didn't read everything he has in stock within The Season of Hobbies storylet:

- A plushie Overgoat.
- Nomen action figures, which disintegrate like the real thing.
- A doll house titled "The Bishop's Barn"
- A candle in the shape of a governess. When lit, the face melts.
- A Rubbery clown doll.
- Revolutionary chess.
- A painting set, with all the colors just different shades of midnight. (Optional gold-gilded frame?)
- Maybe two other things I've forgotten.

I swear... with all these references, this man is one of us forum-goers...

I don't have any new ideas, but Failbetter should really rethink merchandise after that.
And I love it when new permanent NPCs show up.

- the donkey with translucent sacs under its udders
- a marionette that's cut its own strings
- toy soldiers reenacting London's defeat before Hell
- Moloch Street train set

I can neither confirm nor deny that I spent nearly a candle's actions in the toy shop just doing this.

A couple of years ago, I filled out a survey from Failbetter that was about merchandise. One of the questions was about whether you would be willing to buy a Rubbery Man plushie. There were also questions about if you would be interested in a subscription to get occasional shipments of physical Fallen London items/artifacts.

I would absolutely buy an Overgoat plushie (or better yet, an Ubergoat one) like in the Toymaker's shop. And a Rubbery Man one, too. They'd make great gifts for my various nieces and nephews!

Perhaps the Unsettling Toymaker will stick around after the Season of Hobbies is over, and (finally) advance the 'Playing With Broken Toys' storyline?

I agree with Tystefy; the Toymaker may not be able to sell his wares to the children of Fallen London, but many of our Forumgoers would eagerly snap them up!

Ooooh, the Playing with Broken Toys storyline! Perhaps this is already the rationale behind this season's theme? Parabola was woven into last season's ES before we got the Hallowmass Rosers.

I have a twingling feeling that the Masters will offer such a home comfort this year! Or... something!

I'm being 100% serious when I say this. I truly wish Failbetter would add the Toymaker's shop as a location within the in-game Bazaar itself that sells Home Comfort items. Home comforts as stat sticks have always mostly been for high end stats and BDR. Adding in some of the cute and fun toys in as low level Home Comforts items would be amazing.

- A miniature replica of the Avid Horizon, complete with tiny toy icebergs. Despite the extreme minute detail put into the life-like design on the front, the backside is completely flat, blank, and without color, as if one would set it against a wall.

- A stone-working kit to chisel, smooth, mortar, and lay out your own tiny well with functional rope and bucket.


- A bipedal, humanoid bat doll. Silken cloak and other accessories sold separately.

- LIMITED EDITION fox figurines.


But seriously, is all his merch just a coincidence, or...?

That's an interesting idea! It could be in Spite or Ladybones Road. Lower level characters could get a boost, completists would have more items to collect.

I have too, by now, though I blew the actions in smallish lumps over the past few days.

As for toys... You both have overlooked, or not discovered, the toy pram full of stuffed sorrow-spiders (presumably fake plush ones);

The shop would be amazing. Low level players would indeed get a boost plus something else to strive for, and more advanced players would get a kick out of it because they know the significance of such items, even if they seemed weird to newcomers. For the latter, the shop would also foreshadow mysteries to be uncovered.
