  • That certainly is a great incentive.


  • Missed out on some as we don’t have a local Big W and people grab as many as they want, they’re usually gone that same day. Seen people selling them on eBay, so greedy.


  • the books are good – they are only half size to a standard book but its great you can purchase the bigger version at an affordable price if you need to.


  • Excellent idea and the kids love reading them!


  • Fantastic idea – so much better than Scrabble tiles and Squeezies or whatever they are called both of which will end up in land fill. Books will be kept and read for a long time.


  • This is actually a worth while freebie. So much better than scrabble tiles and useless little items


  • What a brilliant idea. These are something that will last for a long time.


  • What an absolutely fantastic initiative. I’ve already shared this with friends who have young children. A great reason for them to visit Big W.


  • Wish we had big w- will definitely ask my mum to get them for me.


  • great idea to encourage reading


  • Fantastic promotion and more practical than the supermarket collectables. Well done Big W


  • Does this mean you have to go to a BigW store every week and have your child with you?
    People living in country areas will probably miss out because of long distance to get to their nearest one and the cost of fuel in some country areas.


  • Really excited and happy with this my daughter loves her books !!


  • The best thing in a long time to happen


  • This is amazing! My son will love this. I’m sure he will also drag me to the toy department!
