Thanks OP. Gone for Baloo for my son. 2-3 week wait but a great price :)

For non prime members I would try pre-ordering this. I believe Amazon will dispatch the toy prior to 11th October and you can then cancel the Xbox game. Job done.

An alternative is to order all 3 together with a minimum 50p item to break the £20 minimum order threshold.

Personally I would order the Xbox game if I didn't want all three. There's nothin to lose. Just cancel the whole order if they won't dispatch the toy until the Xbox game is available for delivery (I don't think they do that though)


Theres normally an option and by default I believe is multiple deliveries as available. The only thing is Amazon has made it harder to cancel pre-order games etc. I used to always do it but once the item you want is dispatched the option to cancel is there but it mentions cancel the other item.. this you cannot do. You can ring them and cancel though.

In each case you need to look at other sellers on Amazon to see the £6.50 offer.

All three comes to £19.50.

I'm an Amazon Prime subscriber so I'm unsure of the implications if you are not.

Plus 3% Quidco/TCB if they track - think Smyths are a fairly decent addition to both, so maybe not something you'd think to check.
especially on the bigger sets get quite a bit knocked off not bad prices :)
This has been running a couple of days now.
Some decent prices after discount.
And good to have Amazon price matching ( or better! ) - worth checking there too.

There were still two left (boys) when I left just before the closing time - it might still be there in the morning. The quality is good and I highly recommend it at this price.

The Radio 4 programme More or Less recently did an article on collectibles, antiques and inflation, and pointed out that today's going rate for a 1950's Hornby train set in mint condition is exactly the same as what it originally cost, when adjusted for inflation.


Yes! I listened to that very episode not so long ago.

I was so suckered in, in my teens in the 90s, into "limited edition" CDs from the likes of Blur, Radiohead etc. What was I thinking, £15 for a limited edition of 100,000..... Now worth 1p plus postage.

"Ultra rare" - hmmm so ultra rare that they are being sold as a complete set massively under RRP.

The fact that four years on these are still being sold makes it pretty clear to me how rare they are.

Millions of these were made, OK a mint boxed set in 100 years will probably be worth a little more than the original cheap price, but please no-one think they will be on Antiques Roadshow!

Remember all those CD's we bought in the 90s thinking they would still be worth something now... And they are now 2 for a £1!


Very true. With economic growth and globalisation comes an increase in the size of consumer markets. I think there are very few things nowadays produced in such small quantities that they will be rare some day.

Everyone has caught on that keeping old tat might be a good investment. But it doesn't work when so many are produced and everyone is doing the same!

Wouldn't waste your time or money on these. Got one as a gift for my daughter, and it goes through 9v batteries like there is no tomorrow.

We have one too, and it's not my favourite toy either. I often find myself picking it up off the floor, where upon it starts talking to me and I reply, "Oh be quiet, no I don't want to laugh and play games!". Sometimes I add swear words.


I'm not alone in cursing a childs toy to be quiet then.

Sorry, AA batteries, but regardless of cell type, it eats them up. Eats duracell for breakfast, shooter Mcagavin style.

Wouldn't waste your time or money on these. Got one as a gift for my daughter, and it goes through 9v batteries like there is no tomorrow.

We have one too, and it's not my favourite toy either. I often find myself picking it up off the floor, where upon it starts talking to me and I reply, "Oh be quiet, no I don't want to laugh and play games!". Sometimes I add swear words.

Even though my local said no stock on the stock checker, I popped in and they were available in-store. The day one edition, so maybe there's some confusion with the SKU.
Worth a trip if it's not to far out of the way.

This. Same happened with me at my local store, listed as out of stock but they had 2 day one editions in store. So if you do want a copy it's worth having a look.
Would be great if Amazon priced match this showing £17 on their site.
Cheers OP! Nearest store is only 200 yards from me. I reserved a copy for the PS4 :)
cheers op got 1 and its day 1 edt

Playing with Toys Helps Kids to Grow

Toys are, at least on the surface, fun and entertaining distractions for children, but there is, of course, much more to it than that. While anyone with kids knows that a child can have fun with their imagination alone, there are a range of toys out there that help children with learning and development, physically, mentally, creatively and socially. Playing with toys also gives children an outlet for their imagination to flourish and a means of discovering and expressing their identity.

A Brief History of Toys

Toys lego building It seems that toys are as old as humanity itself and early examples of children's toys have been unearthed from archaeological sites of ancient cultures the whole world over. They played an important and central part of the rite of passage for girls in Ancient Greece who, on the eve of their wedding night, would "sacrifice" their dolls to the gods in order to enter womanhood.

Toys, as we know them today, really began to take shape during the Enlightenment period as social attitudes towards childhood changed. Throughout the 19th century, toys took on a more educational focus, and as the middle class grew, as did demand for kid's toys and with it, the industrial methods of toy manufacture.

The various technological developments throughout the 20th century saw enormous developments in toy manufacture. The invention of new materials that could be used in toy production, such as plastic, made toys more affordable and they became ubiquitous in homes throughout the West. As the century progressed, ever closer global integration has made toys such as Lego, Barbie and Action Man household names across the planet, and as technology continues to develop, it's certain that toys will go with it.

Different Types of Children's Toys

  • Action figures: Poseable figurines, usually made from plastic and based on popular characters from films, books, television or video games.
  • Antique and second-hand toys: From valuable collectibles to antiques to ubiquitous household toys and games that are gathering dust in an attic, there is a whole world of toys available that fall into this category.
  • Arts & crafts and educational toys: Toys that are designed and marketed as having an educational or creative value for children.
  • Baby, toddler & pre-school toys: Toys specifically aimed at 0-4 year olds. Usually, these toys have a more overt developmental focus.
  • Building sets and blocks: From wooden bricks to Lego, these kinds of toy help children to test their motor and spatial skills, hand-eye coordination, divergent thinking and social skills.
  • Dolls, stuffed animals and dress up: From rag dolls to teddy bears to fancy dress, they teach children to nurture and let them play "grown-ups" at the same time.

Barbie’s Evolution

  • Electronics and computer games: A firm favourite that needs no introduction. Video games are great for testing reflexes, lateral thinking and puzzle solving, but it's easy for a child to spend too long in front of them.
  • Games and puzzles: Great for helping develop strategy and forward thinking, these toys are much more about exercising the brain than the body.
  • Toy kitchen sets: Replica kitchenettes. Traditionally aimed at girls, though it's good to teach boys to cook too.
  • Toy vehicles: Miniature replicas of vehicles. Traditionally a boy's toy, though girls enjoy them too. Some toy vehicles are big enough for a child to sit in and play at being "driver".
  • Outdoor toys: From bicycles to trampolines to paddling pools, these toys help keep kids active and fit, as well as having social benefits.

Toys for Children of Different Age Groups

There have been countless numbers of studies into the subject of child development. Most research points to various milestones that children meet at different ages, and as parents, you will want to get toys that are age appropriate to help your child grow socially, physically and mentally. Here is a brief breakdown of the recommendations made by child development experts, based on a child's age and what will help them to develop.

Toys for Boys and Girls

Toys are an important factor in defining a child's perception of gender roles. If parents buy a girl dolls, kitchenettes, make-up, pink princess dresses and high heeled shoes, they are giving a specific set of messages. If in turn, they buy a boy action figures, chemistry sets, toy cars and building blocks, they send another set of messages. Children learn through play and to some degree, the toys with which they play determine the skills and roles they learn.

In recent years, shifting social attitudes, as well as a growing awareness of the issues surrounding gender identity and gender stereotyping have made this distinction less rigid. Much research has been done on the subject of kid's toys and gender-stereotyping, and a general consensus appears to be emerging that, for a child to develop in a more holistic fashion, it's good for them to have access to both traditionally "masculine" and "feminine" toys. On a practical level, it's great for learning and development, after all, a boy becomes a man, and a grown man shouldn't be afraid of the kitchen in this day and age. But it also plays an important part in social development and contributes to a deeper understanding of the oft-remarked-upon gap between the sexes.

Materials and Toy Safety

Transformers action figureOver the years, toys have been made from a variety of different materials, from the early days of wood, cloth and metal, to the pervasive plastic of modern times. Whatever a toy is made from, the most important factor for parents must be that it's safe for their child. Kids have a habit of putting things in their mouth, so it's imperative that their toys are not poisonous or harmful to a child's development.

In recent years, there have been mounting concerns about toxic chemicals used in toy manufacture, especially in those toys that are made in China. Around 85% of the world's toys come from China, and despite the Chinese government introducing regulation of the country's toy industry in 2007, there have been several high-profile toy recalls since then covered in the media, leading many parent groups to claim that Chinese regulation does not go far enough and is also not sufficiently enforced. In 2011, research carried out by Greenpeace found that around 30 % of Chinese-made toys contain heavy metals and 10 % contain excessive traces of lead.

Toys produced in the European Union must adhere to very strict regulations about what can and can't be used in their manufacture. The EU's Toy Safety Directive spells out a list of requirements that toys must comply with before they can be released onto the market and marketed as being safe for children. All EU-made products that comply with the Directive receive a CE Mark, a compulsory requirement and one that many parents look for in the toys that they buy for their children.

Where To Buy Toys Online

There's a whole host of online retailers selling a range of children's toys. Toy 'R' Us are one of the most well-known, along with the world famous Hamley's of Regent Street. Also, high street favourites John Lewis, online giant Amazon and supermarket chains like Asda and Tesco stock a vast range of different kid's toys.

What To Look for When Choosing a Toy

Both research and experience place an emphasis on five factors to thinking about when choosing a toy for your child.

  • Price: Does it fit your budget?
  • Design: Is the toy easy to use and understand? Is it visually interesting? Has it been well thought out in terms of its design?
  • Play worth: Does it teach a new skill? Foster a child's creativity and hold their interest?
  • Quality: Is the toy safe? Is it durable? Does it have a CE Mark?
  • Values: Does it promote environmental, social or community awareness?
  • Appropriateness: Does it fit the age, abilities and interests of your child?

If the answer to all these questions is a "yes", then you can go ahead and buy it in the knowledge that it's the right kind of toy for your child.

Who's Who in the Toy World

If you're looking for a big-name brand toy, but you're stuck for ideas, here's a few of the biggest names in children's toys to give you some inspiration.

  • Playmobil: This German company have been a household name since the 1970s when their now instantly recognisable product first hit the market.
  • MGA Entertainment: Not a household name in itself until the word "Bratz" is mentioned.
  • Hasbro: Founded in 1923 by the Hassenfeld Brothers (Has-bro), they have brought the world Transformers, My Little Pony, Action Man and Play-Doh.
  • Mattel: Founded in 1945, Mattel are one of the world's best-known toy companies, making favourites like Barbie, Fisher Price, WWE figurines and the card game Uno.
  • LEGO: These little bricks from Denmark have been part of the world since 1949. Loved by kids and adults alike, it's fun and creative and in 2015, LEGO surpassed Mattel to become the biggest toy brand in the world.

The Best Time to Buy Kid's Toys

Put very generally, the best time to buy toys or, at least, the one that causes the least damage to your wallet, is in the run up to Christmas. Black Friday usually marks the beginning of the cheaper period for buying kid's toys, though, in 2015, one study showed that the best day was actually two days before Black Friday on November 26. Either way, it is without question that from late-November to Christmas is the time to buy cheap toys.
