MegaBloks Build n Go Pad - #Bargainoftheweek!

Are you thinking about Christmas yet?

Yes, you're right, I did just mention Christmas in August and I'm not sorry! Living on a tight budget as we do, there is no way that I could afford to do all my Christmas shopping out of my November pay packet so I like to spread it across the year, usually starting as early as Boxing Day the year before...

I find that August is the best time for getting big discounts on toys as the big high street shops (such as Boots, Debenhams and Argos to name just a few) are clearing out their shelves of the 'old' stock ready for the 'must have' buys of the festive season, (some of which will be the same toys in different packaging!)  I've seen better than half prices sales at all of the above this week, but my 'bargain of the week' came from Argos...

Construction toys are always a good present both for my own children and their friends or relatives too, so when a friend told me about the Mega Bloks Create 'n' Play Build 'n' Go Pad's being reduced at Argos from £11.99 to just £4.99 I just had to get a couple for the 'Christmas cupboard' and when I took a look on the website and realised that Argos were offering 3 for 2 on all Toys until Tuesday I immediately reserved 3 at my local store!

They are currently on offer at many other shops for £10 each so at fraction of that at just £3.33 you can't go wrong. They are a perfect travel toy that includes a storage drawer, a building platform and 75 pieces. They are the smaller bricks though so aimed at children aged 4+.

One thing to bear in mind though is they come in two different styles; Blue with kits to makes cars and things with wheels and purple/ pink which includes flowers and animals, (I know which one my car loving daughter would prefer!) however when you reserve (or order online) you cannot specify which one you want so it is luck of the draw. When I when to collect mine I had to ask a very lovely staff member to nip down to the stock room and swap and pink one for a blue one, if you don't ask you don't get!

Have you started your Christmas shopping this year? I would love to hear about your 'bargain of the week'

  1. Excellent bargain...had to sit on my hands to make sure I didn't buy them!! We are big into Lego in our house so don't really want to have other bits. I started my shopping for Christmas 2013 in October 2012! X
