Spread the toy costs this Christmas with our top tips for the best bargains


PANICKING about the cost of a family Christmas?

Often it’s the kids’ wish list that can break your budget. But these supermarket bargains — which include savings on top toys such as Lego and Peppa Pig — can save the day.

Don’t panic this Christmas as you treat your kids – we take you around supermarkets to grab the best bargains

Here I take you round the Big Four and tell you what to add to your basket, now.

TESCO: The supermarket’s half-price toy sale is now live, making it a great time to give Santa a headstart.

You can snap up everything from Lego to Peppa Pig for 50 per cent less.

My favourites include the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dash, down from £35 to £17.50, and the Harry Potter invisibility cloak, reduced from £30 to £15.

MORRISONS: Yet another unmissable toy sale with 50-per-cent discounts on popular picks, including Playmobil and Lego.

A four-pack of Avengers figures is £20, down from £40.

Shoppers can only get these bargains in store, though, until November 25.

SAINSBURY’S: You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to bagging bargain toys at the moment, with Sainsbury’s also offering some fantastic discounts.

Brands in the sale include Lego, ­Disney, Barbie, Frozen, Hot Wheels and Nerf.

This event is running in store (although there are a few deals of up to a third off online).

Offers are set to end on Wednesday — so you had ­better head down to your nearest store now.

ASDA: Not to be beaten in the battle of the bargains, Asda is also hosting a huge kids’ toy rollback.

As well as branded goodies, there are also fantastic toys from the store’s own range up for grabs.

My favourites include the Asda lorry ride-on and the Asda toy checkout, both down from £20 to £15.
