SAINBURY'S half price toy sale starts today and includes popular brands like Hot Wheels, Hatchimal and Playmobil. And even though Christmas is still two months away, it might be a good chance for parents to bag some early bird deals. 6 Sainsbury's is launching a week-long toy sale starting from today Shoppers can scoop up to 50 per cent off on the toys between Wednesday October 16 and Tuesday 22. The products and deals aren't available to buy online so you'll need to head to a store to grab a bargain - you can find your nearest store here. We've taken a look at what's on offer to find out if the bargains are really as good as they seem.
Hot Wheels Corkscrew Crash - Now: £25, Was: £50 6 Ironically, the aim of the game is to avoid a collision The Hot Wheels Corkscrew Crash is ideal for any mini motorhead in your family - the track design sends the cars smashing through a triple loop. There are three major crash zones and three high-speed boosters, although the aim of the game is to avoid a collision. The next cheapest price we could find for the set is at Smyth's, which is also running a half price sale, but it costs £29.99 - £4 more expensive than at Sainsbury's.
