Welcome to the Bricktanks update,
Hope you've been enjoying all the lovely sunshine. Sorry for the radio silence, I think it has been 2 weeks since my last update - lots going on but mostly homeschool has had to take a front seat and fielding customer service queries.
But, we've got some exciting sets arriving next week and one or two surprises, thanks to COBI offering us first dibs on someone else's cancelled order again :)
SPARE PARTS + ACCESSORIES
We placed a new spares order via the Cobi.pl website this week and will be placing another one next week so please let us know if there are any specific parts you would like us to get for you.
Please email product codes and item amounts to: firstname.lastname@example.org and please check our Spares section in case we already have what you're after.
