Bestselling Toys and Games in the UK for weekending Saturday 16th September 2017

Lego Advent CalendarThese are the unofficial top 10 best-selling Toys and Games in the UK for the week ending Saturday 16th September 2017. As of today, there are 99 days until Christmas. We are seeing popular toys and games going out of stock which is a good indication that people have started their Christmas shopping. Indeed if you have a number of people to buy for it does make sense to spread your purchases over the weeks before Christmas to help your budgeting.

Of note, in this weeks top ten is the Lego Advent Calendar which is going to be very popular with 6+ year-old boys, and likely to sell out quickly. On the other hand, my daughter pointed out the Disney Moana necklace.

I have already purchased their beautiful Chocolate Advent Calendars for my children.  I love that Thorntons have used the Snowman to illustrate their advent calendar and hope that my little chocolate will love this picture as much as the yummy chocolates inside.

Advent Calendar on sale before we’ve even had Halloween.

I know we say it every year, but the shops seem to get ready for Christmas a little bit earlier every year.  As far as I’m concerned selling advent calendars before we’ve even had Halloween is ridiculous.  Although I normally love Waitrose  I was disappointed to stand in line at the checkout this morning and find myself looking at a display of Advent Calendars.

Advent Calendar on sale before we've even had Halloween.

 

Who seriously went out shopping on Saturday the 6th of October, stood inline at the checkout, spotted these advent calendars and thought to themselves, fantastic that’s just what I needed and bought one?  I’d love to know how many Waitrose sold on 6th October.  Advent doesn’t even start until 2nd December this year!  Sorry to pick on Waitrose, I’m sure the other supermarkets were doing similar but that’s where I was shopping this morning and to be honest I expect better from them.

Let me know what you think and if you’ve seen any similar examples this early in the year.

Get your Advent Calendar Ready

Don’t forget that the First Sunday in Advent (Sunday 27th November this year) is when you should open the first door on your advent calendar.  If you are a Good Parent to any children then its traditionally your privilege to give them an Advent Calendar’s as a present this weekend as a way of introducing them to the Christmas story.  I bought ours a few weeks ago, now I just have to remember where I put it….
 
Update Sunday 27th November:  Most commercial advent calendars start from December 1st and only have 25 doors.  I made a point of buying a religious themed calendar from John Lewis which explicitly stated that it had a door for each day of Advent, so really annoyed today to open it and find it only has 25 doors.
