Toy Sale at Sainsbury’s (starts Wednesday)

Sainsburys Toy Sale

Sainsburys Toy SalePut on your fighting gear, it’s time to battle for those half price bargains.

Once a year, Sainsbury’s put on a spectacle. The half price toy sale brings out the worst in mums across the country. Fighting tooth and nail to grab those bargains.

Unlike previous years though, this year it’s not a blanket sweep of all toys for half price, some toys are just a third or even a quarter off.

Still, it’s well worth heading down to you local store as early as possible on Wednesday 24th October 2012 to grab yourself a bargain.

There will also be limited items available online – Click Here (when it goes live)
