Finding your collectables on the internet
As with many things, you may find a wider selection of toy crazes online. However, you will have to factor in delivery costs. Some of the smaller toys are available as ‘Add On’ items which might work well if you’re looking to make other purchases at the same time. Sometimes, it’s better value to buy larger quantities to save money. This is especially helpful if you’re looking for party bag presents or non-chocolate gifts for Easter Egg hunts.
Sometimes prices are higher on the internet because these crazes are in very high demand. You should check exactly what you’re getting for your money and only buy if you’re comfortable with the price. Also note that some must-have toys are shipped from overseas so could take a while to arrive. Most of these collectables are aimed at ages 4-5 years+ but also check age suitability before buying.
