That means I’ve had several emails from nervous parents this week. But don’t get caught out. These are where the top toys are currently cheapest…
Monopoly Fortnite: We tipped it as a Top ten toy back in November but the classic game with the new modern twist is now sold out at Argos, Smyths and The Entertainer.
But buy via Very.co.uk for £21.99 and take advantage of the topcashback.com deal for new customers, that gives up to 18 per cent back, which means it’s only £18.04.
Fingerlings: Interactive Fingerlings toys normally sell for £15, but a Baby Unicorn version called Gemma is being sold by a third-party seller on Amazon for £44.99 — nearly three times the usual price. Parents shouldn’t despair, we found that you can bag a Gemma if you can collect from certain The Entertainer stores. Use the retailer’s store finder tool to locate your nearest branch.
Harry Potter Lego: Fans may have their hearts set on the Quidditch stadium set. Argos has sold out of the toy online but shoppers can still get it in some branches for £34.99, compared to the £159.48 price on eBay. Check the store finder tool for your nearest branch.
LOL Surprise House: So many people have contacted me about this favourite toy. But at a whopping £179.99, it’s a huge chunk of the budget. There’s still stock at Argos and even better — customers can get three per cent cashback via Quidco.com, making it £174.60.
Luvabella dolls: The lifelike dolls RRP for £99, but several of you are still desperate to get your hands on one.
Retailers such as Very have cut the costs down to £69.99 but Amazon has slashed the price to £59.99. They are selling fast, so be quick!
