Buying Kids’ Stuff in Spain – Toys & More
Every time you go shopping with kids in tow you’ll hear the inevitable “can I have one”, but if you can bag a bargain then it won’t be so painful when you get to the checkout till. Or better still, go shopping online for toys, games and more to help to keep your sanity in check. We’ve included in the info below both bricks & mortar stores as well as online bargains. Remember to check the dates for each offer and see if there are any birthdays or other celebrations coming up so you can buy early and save a few euros.
[tab title=”Toys“]Free delivery for orders over 29€ (limited period offer), discounts for 21st anniversary and they now stock Peppa Pig items too! Check prices by visiting the Toys R Us website. (Free delivery offer valid for a delivery value of up to 10€, ie if you buy several large items then you may have to pay part of the delivery cost).[/tab]
[tab title=”Books / Games“]If you’re looking for books in English or games then try Play.com where you’ll get free delivery on all your order to Spain. However, with electronic games make sure you check the terms & conditions as not all items are eligible for export. Also remember that items may be delivered separately.
For a great selection in books of all things Spanish for children and teenagers, then check out the selection at Books4Spain. With a good stock of books about Spain and the language, you’re sure to find something they’ll be interested in.[/tab]
[tab title=”Almost free“]If your kids know or are learning Spanish, then why not get the sets of index cards offered by Planeta de Agostini – Winnie the Pooh for younger kids for only 1.50€ (includes free measuring chart also) and the Human Body (Cuerpo Humano) for older kids at 0.95€. Of course the idea is to get your info onto their mailing list, but you’re not under any obligation to buy anything else. Just click on the links below.
