How can I save money on the top 10 Xmas toys?
In a nutshell, it's all about making the most of and 3 for 2 toy deals, currently available from catalogue giant Argos and one of our favourite places to buy toys for less, Boots.
Of course, if you only actually want one toy, it's no bargain, and it's then a case of looking at the other retailers offering the lowest price - MSE tips Tesco, Amazon, Toys R us and Asda Direct.
The other fascinating bit of information in the blog is the chart tracking the price of a top toy from 2013, the Teska Robotic Puppy. It shows how the best time to buy the toy was in September and October, as the online price jumped dramatically in November by £20.
So the message is; buy early and look for special offers. Thanks MSE!
