Yes, there is a picture of all the books but I can't quite make out all the titles.

Do you have to collect a book each day or can you save them up to collect in one go? I assume the former is true to make it more difficult?

OK - thanks for adding the info - I haven't got my paper yet... I'm getting fed up
of traipsing to Woolies everyday and I'm not sure that I really need the Lego
cardboard box lol! Will add rep for you if I can figure out how! :thinking:

I would guess it'll be the same as the Lego, which is collect in store on a daily basis or collect
7 tokens and send a cheque to get them all sent to you - the Lego cheque is for £6.50 IIRC

the 12 lego kits for £6.50 were worth it for me - you certainly can't buy them that cheaply that I know of,
but most of these books are too young for my kids so I might just pick up one or two for my Uni work.
If it's the same for the books it'll be £8.30 (£6.50 + 7x40p), so about 67p each if my maths is right? not a bad price all things considered

I don't mind sending off £6.50 as I pinch the vouchers from work colleagues that have no kids ;-)

(anybody fancy boosting my nintendo thread lol!)

Last year for the ladybird books it was Somerfield. I hope it is this year as it is only around the corner from me :thumbsup:

These are pick up at somerfield!
If you have yesterdays mirror, in small writing at the top right hand corner of advert it says "pick up at somerfield".

Thank you Manda1, Somerfield is 1 minute from my house :-)

We were lucky - mothercare world got their boxes in early and I don't think they realised they were one of the days toys - my dad got given one last week with the lego motor bike!

we missed two toys, the box and the playmat because Woolies didn't get the stock delivered -
but I'm sure they were supposed to have them bulk delivered at the start?! Anyway, the girls on
the tills tried their best bless 'em

I didn't realise Mothercare ELC's were part of the promo - I'll pop over tomorrow to see if we can catch up
thanks toyshopper

Got my book. They are smaller than usual and have 'The Mirror' logo on them so no chance of giving them away as pressies ;-)

All the books have been delivered to my local store as I saw them!

I hate it when they do that - the Telegraph did it on the Horrible Histories books too

My mum works at somerfields so always get the freebies. So glad these are at somerfield, already got the first 7, need to wait till next sat for the rest.

They are really good, but like someone said they have the mirror logo but great freebie

How popular is this deal, my mate went to Somerfields on Sunday and was the first person to ask for their book!

I have just collected 7 tokens the last from Tuesdays mirror so that II can send £5.99 to get all 12 books.

However just noticed in Tuesdays Mirror it says we will print the address in WEdnesdays Mirror so that you can send your tokens off. Did anybody get the Mirror on Wednesday 12th Nov as I need the address

Thanks:thumbsup:

bump :oops:

Me too - if anyone has the address can they please post? Many thanks.
