"This year, the list includes a Peppa Pig playset, a twerking llama as well as toys from Paw Patrol, Lego and LOL Surprise. They will all be available to buy at Argos from July 27, with the exception of a Toy Story toy which is available in stores now."


Me, I would love the LEGO Harry Potter Night Bus !
Owleez also looks cute.

Sure !
But I guess business caught up with the fact that people are budgeting and buying earlier and earlier to spread the cost, and therefore business adapted to make the most from that trend.

for the Cadbury Heroes tin lovers,

a British company bagged the global contract from Cadbury owner Mondelez, to supply personalised tins with photos and messages on them !

Picked up a 'Christmas Street' jigsaw for the folks which was on offer in a shop near me. They love doing jigsaws around Christmas, New Years.

A jigsaw is a great Christmas present! I got Mr. CL one last year & once the kids were in bed, we'd take it out, glass of vino & have the chats. It was really lovely, rather than just sitting gawking at the telly or our phones

Exactly.

The folks dining room table is covered in lego trains for 10 months of the years. My Mum makes my Dad put them away around mid December and the jigsaws come out (also they have all the family around for New Years day meal, to end off the Christmas season). Anyone who comes to the house always ends up sitting at the table doing a bit of jigsaw, drink in hand. Recently as the grandkids have got old enough, there is a couple of kids ones on the go as well.

It one of my favourite things about Christmas time.

I think we should all drop into your parent's house at Christmas. Sounds great!

We got a set of 5 x 1000 piece christmas jigsaws last year with the intention of doing 1 every year in the build up. But hand on heart the one we started was so difficult we gave up after a month & still barely having quarter of it done. It was by far the hardest jigsaw I have ever attempted to put together.
Will try one of the other ones this year & see how far I get but if its anything like the forst one I wouldnt hold out much hope for completing it.

We had this great idea last year and we nearly killed one another. Maybe 1000 pieces was to ambitious!

I have seen jigsaws get competitive and addictive.........

I'm lucky that my Dad likes Christmas a lot as well. Goes all out with the decorations etc.

The big lit up snowman that goes over the garage use to be the guiding beacon back in my younger/drunker nights when staggering home!
