The Big W Toy Mania sale has finally arrived. After weeks of anticipation, bargain-hungry shoppers were at the ready to buy up a storm and stock the cupboards for Christmas and birthdays.
Shoppers took to social media in the run-up to the sale to express their disappointment in what was on offer. In an earlier story, shoppers made comments such as:
‘Yup, it’s terrible this year.’
Others also said, ‘I agree I’m not happy but not only price but choice.’
Hoards On The Lookout For A Bargain
However, despite the grumblings, the Big W stores were heaving with desperate parents on the lookout for a deal.
One woman shared a video on social media of crowds of people ready to be let into the store at midnight on Thursday.
“Toy sale madness at Narellan,” was the caption of the video posted in Big W Families Australia facebook group.
Many commenters responded to the mayhem, expressing their disbelief that so many would go shopping so late at night.
This is a “total sh*t show”, on said. They’re “lunatics”, said another.
Shoppers took to social media to share photos of the loot they had picked up for discounted prices.
One mum was very proud of her shopping prowess:
“In and out in one hour, 28 mins shopping, 20 mins in line and 10 mins at counter,” she said.
Top picks at the sale include new film-themed LEGO from $29, remote controlled Skate & Sing Elsa at $10 off ($59) and the Toy Story 4 Talking Figures – now $15, save $14. There are three new Ryan’s World toys for BIG W (including his Combo Panda Airline $49) and popular Lol! Surprise Confetti Pop is half-price at $9.
And those who remember Polly Pockets will be over the moon to discover that Big W is selling the 30 year edition Polly Pocket Partytime Surprise Keepsake Compact for $29.
