Does it have to be a new toy, ie unopened, surely they'll just get a load of broken rubbish otherwise? Just been on the website but it crashed!

the way i read it was it was toys to give to other children barnardos help disadvantaged children, so im sure they wouldnt want broken toys but used ones would be ok..I personally wouldnt give a broken toy to a charity knowing it should go to another child.. if the broken toys isnt obvious then there could be one very upset child christmas day.

Just see it for what it is. Publicity for Argos. Unwanted toys being re used rather than thrown away before Christmas to make room for new toys this Christmas and children who would not get anything having a nice Christmas.

Any toy?
Can I bring in a hundred toys and get 500.00 gift voucher ?
Dont understand

take in as many toys as you like.. they all going to charity you get one £5 voucher for every toy but that has to be spent on toys over £35. i would imagine its one voucher redeemed per transaction

from the argos facebook page..

The Argos aliens are back on our TVs tonight to help us promote a really special campaign. At Argos we believe that every toy should be played with, which is why we’ve launched The Toy Exchange.

From tomorrow bring in your unwanted toys
and we’ll donate them to Barnardo’s to help transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children, and we’ll give you £5 off your next toy purchase over £35. What’s more we’ve got a Facebook competition to support the campaign and you could win yourself £100 worth of Argos vouchers and another £100 for Barnardo’s

I like the idea but I just feel like why don't they just give x amount to Barnardo's instead.

Seems ok if you are going there I guess.
1 toy for 35 voucher.
I am sure argos donate millions every year, as does my company, This just seems a way of driving in business, not something they are doing for their local community.

i think its a prtetty good idea, even if their motives are less than wholly honourable at least it's toys for the barnardos kids to enjoy, cant be a bad thing

Bit immoral to give in broken toys, they are for other children after all.

Just another way of Argos trying to increase poor sales pre Christmas,dress it up all you want but that what it amounts to.

If that was the case then surely they could achieve the same sales boost by just giving out the £5 vouchers gratis? Don't be such a cynic, it's for a good cause.

Most of the £35+ toys at Argos are atleast £5 costlier already, found by quick googling !

Does it have to be one toy priced at £35 + or can it be a few toys totalling that amount thanks

Erm no - with this wheeze, they can take advantage of the "think of the children!" factor.

Here's a thought. Why not just donate your unwanted toys to Barnardos direct yourself. You're not really donating them if you are exchanging them for a £5 gift voucher. Morally wrong. Naughty Argos.

Just back from Argos. I took in a couple of new unused toys, but staff said any toy would do, Barnardos either resell in the shop or recycle what they can't sell. I personally think it a good idea and can't see what the criticism is about. Recycling, charity and £5 off the item I reserved yesterday before I knew about this promotion - all good I think!
