With only a few months left to go until Christmas, we are starting to see baubles, Christmas wrapping paper and advent calendars make their way into the shops. Christmas can be an expensive time for everyone especially if you have kids so the best thing to do to avoid seasonal stress is to spread the cost and get ahead of yourself by making a start on your Christmas present buying early. Whether your child has already spied their must have toy for this year or you want to add some new family games to the collection to keep the kids entertained through the festive season, our Argos discount codes are on hand to make sure you don’t break the bank whatever toys you choose. Right now at Argos they are also giving you an extra helping hand as you can enjoy up to a third off of a range of toys including well known brands and characters like Barbie, Peppa Pig, Marvel, Hot Wheels and Lego. Don’t worry, if you are in need of some major toy inspiration, we’ve chosen a range of our top picks from the sale to really get you in the Christmas mood.
Fun For all the Family With Argos Board Games
Christmas is all about bonding time with your friends and family, where you can get the kids off their electronics and into some fun board games. We all have some classics that we know and love like Monopoly, Cluedo or Go Fish but why not refresh your collection with a few new ones that are sure to bring hours of family fun at a discounted price. Here are our favourite promotional Christmas games.
Beat the Parents: One of our favourites is the Beat the Parents Game as it offers equal fun for both kids and adults alike. It is a fun family trivia game where the kids compete against the adults but the kids answer the questions that the adults should know and the adults answer the questions that the kids should know. This makes it an equal playing field for all, with bonus and bust questions in the mix as well. In the Argos toy sale you can pick this game up for just £10 reduced from £15.
What Do You Meme?: Another of our top picks is the What Do You Meme Family Edition. This is a family friendly version of the original adult hit party game What Do You Meme where you build a joke by matching photos and captions. The set includes 300 caption cards and 65 photos and everyone gets to be a judge on how hilarious each player really is. At £16 this card game is travel friendly and can include up to 20 players if you are planning on visiting lots of family this Christmas season.
Lego for All Ages
If you or your children love Lego, you are definitely not the only ones! The signature plastic lego pieces that you are familiar with today have been on our shelves since 1949 and make a fun activity for kids and adults alike. Shop the master builder collection for more intricate adult collectors pieces or even a box of mixed bricks so your kids can let their imaginations run wild creating whatever they want.
Lego The Child: One of our favourites that is bound to put a smile on your children's faces this year is the Argos lego star wars Mandalorian The Child set. Baby Yoda is an absolute favourite among star wars lovers so what’s better than this collectible model that has a range of changeable expressions, and moveable head, mouth and ears to really bring the figure to life. This build is for children aged 10 and up and has 1073 pieces so will be a fun and rewarding challenge for any child to complete over the Christmas season and is only £50 in the sale.
Lego Skylines: If you have some older children or young adults to buy for, the Architecture series from Lego is a great collection to start for them.
