We all know that Christmas can get expensive, especially if you've got lots of little people to buy for - toys aren't cheap! That's why staying in the know about the latest deals and sale events is a must for any parent.
One of the most popular events (alongside Black Friday of course!) is the annual Sainsbury's toy sale.
What is Sainsbury’s toy sale?
The supermarket runs one half-price toy sale event each year, allowing shoppers to stock up on brilliant toy deals - just in time for Christmas!
When is Sainsbury’s toy sale?
Typically, the sale is usually held around the middle of October and lasts for a week. But this year, the sale has been delayed and is believed to take place from Wednesday 10th November to Wednesday 16th November.
What toys are in the Sainsbury’s toy sale?
This is difficult to predict because the offers differ each year but we reckon you can expect to see brands such as:
• Paw Patrol
• Hot Wheels
And many more.
Will I be able to shop online?
Sainsbury’s usually run the majority of their toy sale in the supermarket itself so we’d recommend grabbing a trolley and hitting the shelves. That said, there are often limited deals online too.
Here are a few offers currently available online…
