Welcome one and all, see post two for links.
Any referral links to go on this separate thread please
So, info below is hopefully helpful and links below are for some of the frequented websites from the page. If you know of a website that would be good to add please let me know .
Since it's so popular now there would just be too many links in the link post, and I'd go slightly unhinged attempting to get them all in, so I'm fine tuning and doing generic site links rather than specific product links (unless there's something so brilliant that consensus is to add it here). If there's a stupendous code that could do with adding on here let me know bold and big is really helpful for me . Hope you find it useful.
Predicted by fireflygirl the 25%off Sainsbury's dates:
(They were right on all but one last year
24 October 2017
27 November 2017
Black Friday will be on Friday 24th November this year, and Monday 27th will be Cyber Monday
18th October 2017
Looks like this will be the date for Sainsbury's big toy sale this year so save the date! Will update if I hear any different.
It's usually really good instore
Sockeatingmonster’s top tips about aliexpress:
I have used Aliexpress quite a bit over the last few years. My tips/observations are:
1. Check reviews
2. Be wary of plastic toys. There have been concerns about toxic plastics from China, and I have binned plastic figures for having very unpleasant smells. I no longer buy any 'low-end' plastic items and only ever from sellers with lots of positive reviews
3. Aliexpress refund/complaints procedure is actually way more straightforward than eBay, and stacked in the buyer's favour
4. Beware of mains operated electricals, many of which are supplied without fused plugs. Always message the seller first if in doubt, don't rely on the photos
5. I don't trust dress up clothes to be flame retardant, although I don't believe this is UK law anyway?
6. Clothes can come up very small. Quality can be variable (excellent to awful). Photos are often of similar items, so take them with a pinch of salt and check the reviews.
7. Actually, all photos on Aliexpress should be taken with a pinch of salt. Again, check reviews (where buyers often post photos of the actual item received)
8. I wouldn't trust toys to meet UK safety standards and wouldn't buy anything that could pose a risk (e.g. Paint might not be safe for children to gum, there could be sharp edges/choking hazards, etc)
9. Lego alternatives don't tend to stick together as well as genuine Lego. Minifigures are still excellent value, but the odd one might benefit from a few drops of superglue.
10. Barbie and other doll clothes can be excellent value, but check reviews for fabric quality and finish
11. Stationery is generally excellent value, although paper quality can be lower than expected. Type 'kawaii' into stationery and be prepared to spend a fortune!

Thank you lovely Reastie.
Just taken possession of a ginormous box from Lisa Angel. To say I only ordered jewellery trinkets, it's a mighty big container!
Thanks again reastie. Just a reminder than Debenhams have 20% off toys (when you spend £25), including items already in the sale. code: PH36
My Matalan pj's have arrived! Just got to get to the shop to pick them up.
Ooh new thread already! I think I’ve got stockings sorted now! Waiting for Black Friday to try and get a bargain on DH’s main present. Still debating DS1’s main present though!
Waaah just seen i've made the thread title. That's s made me rediculously happy.
Smyths have fingerlings available for both home delivery and pre order now
Peacemaking for news of unsatisfactory fingerlings.
Or even placemarking. Flippin autocorrect.
Thanks for the new thread, love the title!
Well, I have been desperately trying to keep up with these threads but no luck! I wanted to share this beauty box £40 for a mixture of items or £30 if you are a subscriber. Sorry I can't do a proper link on my phone
@Macnab sorry but that will be a fake. Seller claims they are sending it from Liverpool but it’ll take 20 days, and further down it says seller is in Hong Kong the unicorn is a Toys R Us exclusive.
I am only just getting into the fingerings thing _ what's the difference between the fakes and the real deal please? I jumped on the wagon and bought one off Ali for €4, my ds doesn't even know what they are I was more interested!
Aldi are getting heated throws in, might get one!
Thanks for new thread
Just a word of warning to check prices. Popped into Sainsbury's today but generally disappointed. Some of the paw patrol toys are cheaper in Asda and a lot of the Lego is actually cheaper on Amazon, So don't panic if the item you wanted is sold out.
I popped into Sainbos today and picked up a few bargains including some dye cast metal airoplanes reduced to £1:40 perfect for little stocking fillers.
I also picked up a remote control yellow Lamborghini reduced from £60 to £30 my 11yr old whose dream car is a yellow Lamborghini 😁
There's a £5 off £20 spend kids clothing only at Matalan. And if you need a hession sack there's 50% off at the Santa sack co with code early bird.
Thanks for the new thread.
shoppingbasket that heated throw is going on my Christmas list!
Inside my Lisa angel returns paper work there are some future discount codes for next orders. Valid 30 days. 10% off £30 124683, 15% off £50 125632, 20% off £70 116526. Not sure if they are single use but I won't use them. Includes sale
