This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Thought these were pretty awesome for the price!
Classic Consoles (Nintendo) Backpack Buddies for £1.99 each in Aldi.

Much larger than I imagined and I managed to complete the set by only buying 13 bags (4 doubles)

Note that these are blind bags.
8 to collect (9 if you include the chase/golden console)

Also, right next to them on the shelf, Super Mario Series 2 Backpack Buddies, for £1.99 each too!

Very unlikely to be store specific as they had a big board outside, advertising instore ‘deals’ and both of these were on there!

High Street, Glasgow definitely has these as I saw them last night and didn't know what they were

It’s national I believe!

Are the buttons clickable?
So cute! These are things of beauty.
Had a few of these at full price some time ago. Well worth £2!
Looks good

Collectibles, but also buddies... for your backpack!
Picked up two this morning and ended up getting the red gameboy and the gameboy advance

some of them were hard to feel through the bags due to them being wrapped in cardboard too. I thought the advance might have been a controller as could only feel part of the shape

I managed to feel around in the hope of finding an N64 pad, which worked luckily!
Was after the Chase and so picked out a few I thought were all Gameboys and got a NES pad instead in one.
Some are very tough to gauge as you say!

I’ll probably go back tomorrow and pick up a few more, even the guy who served me said he was going to buy some and he said he was trying to suss them out as he was putting them out as to which was which.

would have been well easier if they didn’t have the thin card box inside as could have got a better feel to see what was what. I knew one of mine was a gameboy due to being able to feel the long edges but the advance threw me as I thought that could have been an n64 or GameCube pad
Bought 4 of these. 4 mini DS. Unreal. I’m raging
went to the 4 aldi stores that are even remotely near me, none of them had them in and hadn't got them apparently. my wife even stopped into one on her way to a training course which was miles away....still no.
39925392-1PHHG.jpgManaged to grab what was left in my local aldi. There's another one 10 miles away which I'll check to.
Bought 8 from Aldi in Wallisdown during my lunch break. They've got about 20 left. Really wanted the Gameboy one, and managed to pull it on the first try! Result!

Not sure what to do with the other 7 now though :P

Shall we set up a little swaps group, those of us trying to get a full set?

Yes!!!
Although I have each, I think it’s a great idea!
Shame its the American style snes pad 🤢
Just went back to my local ALDI as they still had quite a few bags left, more Mario ones than the pads

after a good rummage and guessing I grabbed an N64 pad and GameCube pad and then I thought my third one was gonna be a SNES pad but turned out to be a 3DS
Forgot to mention if anyone’s after the Mario ones I noticed there’s an eBay auction where a seller is selling a box of 24 blind bags for £19.99 so cheaper than buying in ALDI if you want that series

Thank you! What a legend! Got myself some

You’re welcome, least it works out cheaper buying a box for £20 rather than £1.99 each and not knowing if you’ll get a set as least in a box you’ll easy have a full set and then some to swap.
shame the same seller didn’t have the console version for sale too

Well when I was in Aldi, I was torn between going for the consoles or Mario ones, so having found these on ebay, I know I made the right choice!
Less than £1 a bag and sold by Paladone themselves I believe so happy days!
Thanks again!

Ah I didn’t realise it was them selling the retail boxes as didn’t look into it but a good deal for a full box and saves trying to figure out in Aldi which ones you’re picking up as the console one had some tricky ones. Managed to get 5 console ones but gonna leave it now in case I end up getting duplicates
Just bought one from Aldi in Preston, they had loads!
cheers,picked up 2 bags today,,,cheers now im hooked on wantin more

3 of each and no chase in the end 😰

You’d think there would have been a chase amongst them.

went back to my local Aldi after work and they aren’t to be seen anymore so think they’ve gone into the back as a new line of stuff is in its place now
