Lockwood – Eagle Mount
You used to have to be a wizard in the know to ride on the back of a giant eagle, but not anymore. Lockwood’s majestic Eagle, Aquila, is in store now just waiting to take you on your first flight. Don’t be scared!

Party Dances
It can be difficult getting the party started. The music seems too loud, or not loud enough, no-one’s eating the chips and dips, everyone’s too self-conscious to get on the dance floor. That is, unless someone gets out there first and makes an exhibition of themselves, which is where Lockwood’s Party Dance Pack comes in.

Figment
Lockwood’s formalwear brand Figment is amongst their most popular. Incorporating the hugely successful Dream Universe, plus numerous chic clothing options, it all began with two outfits. Now, the women’s Evening Elegance clothing and the men’s Gentleman’s Formal Dress range are available in the Gift Machine in Exclusive new colours.
