When I had my twins, and later my third child, someone told me I was very lucky that they were all born in August. She answered my confused look by telling me about the ‘Big Toy Sale in July’ and how easy it would be for me (and others) to buy the kids great presents at fantastic prices. At the time I didn’t see myself rushing to the stores just for toys but a few years on and I am scanning the toy sale catalogues just like any other mum. This week Australia’s Biggest Toy Sale kicks of at Target and I have already got my list ready for the VIP night this Wednesday.

First of all, you don’t have to attend the store to enjoy the big savings, you can easily browse and order the toys online and get them delivered at home or pick them up from your local Target store. Christmas shoppers can put their favourite toys on Lay-by for pick-up/delivery in November. Now that’s bargain shopping made easy: no parking, no hiding Christmas toys from curious little eyes and no lining up at the checkout.

I myself have my eyes on a few things from the Toy Sale Catalogue that are going to be perfect for our trip to Europe, I had sneakily been hoping to pick them up on sale close to our departure so I am glad I waited. The first thing I will be searching for is two Fisher-Price Kid Tough Digital Cameras ($50). The kids will be so excited to be taking their own pictures, at the airports, on the plane and of course during the holiday. Can’t wait to see their shots!

I am also hoping to pick up some new games for our LeapPad and Leapster Explorer, the LeapFrog games are fantastic and will keep the twins busy for ages on the plane. At 25% off these LeapFrog games are well priced so I think we’ll get two and they can swap half way through the trip. If you don’t have a LeapPad or Leapster Explorer yet you can buy them in the Toy Sale with good discounts too.

Obviously I don’t want to forget about my youngest but she is a little tricky to buy for, she just always wants what the bigger kids have. However I am quite sure I can’t go wrong with this Fisher-Price Little People Doodle Pro ($19). She absolutely loves drawing and it will save me bringing a supply of paper and picking up crushed crayons. The Doodle Pro will also be perfect for play guessing and drawing games with the older two, a great travel toy and currently 30% off.

To find out more about the Target, home of Australia’s Biggest Toy Sale, to browse the Toy Sale Catalogue and to order (or layby) your favourite toys online visit www.target.com.au/toysale.
