Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK said: 'Christmas is such a magical time and this year we're proud to spread some festive cheer by offering our biggest and best range of toys yet.

'We also know how stressful Christmas shopping can be, which is why our team of experts have been hard at work to try and take as much of the stress out of Christmas as possible by hand-picking the latest must-have toys for our customers.

'With more and more Brits shopping for their gifts online, we hope our new online toy store will help to make the process much easier for shoppers and ensure that our quality products are available to more customers than ever before, including those who do not have an Aldi store nearby.'

The October Toy Event is available in stores and online via the Aldi Toy Store from the 21st October, but shoppers will have to be quick as Specialbuys are sure to sell out fast.
