Want to get a head start on Christmas shopping?  This is the time to take advantage of lower prices at one of the biggest children’s toy shops in the UK. 

Keep on reading to get all the info on Smyths Toys sale dates for 2022.

When is the Smyths Toy Sale?

Smyths Toys is one of the biggest providers of toys, baby, outdoor and gaming products in the UK. It boasts low prices, great quality, and a robust selection of items, from baby monitors and pushchairs to educational toys and video games.

Smyths typically has several sales throughout the year, most of which are just in time for the big holidays like Christmas and Easter, bank holidays, and big shopping events like Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Boxing Day.

This year it is expected to hold three major sales, including:

  • The half-price toy sale at Smyths takes place almost every year, usually in the second or third week of October. It was cancelled last year, but it could be back in 2022 (our predicted date is 21st of October), so check their website around this time. Tesco has a similar sale at the end of October, so take a look at their offer as well. 
  • Voucher event: This Smyths Toys sale takes £10 off every £50 spent and is one of the best offers customers can get with this retailer. It takes place at the beginning of October, so be ready to shop when vouchers become available. 
  • Black Friday Sale: Smyths Toys is known to start the Black Friday discount a little early (usually a week before the Friday), giving shoppers plenty of time to get the best possible deals. Expect to find offers of 50% off and more during that week. 
  • Boxing Day Sale: The traditional after-Christmas sale will give you great bargains and a chance to surprise the little ones with a post-holiday gift. 

In addition to these, Smyths has an ongoing clearance sale all year-round where you can buy LEGO, bikes, action figures, Hot Wheels and other selected toys at half price or even lower. 

Check their website to see which items are on offer.

Smyths Toys Sale Tips

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of shopping the Smyths Toys sales. 

1. Check stock availability online

Open the Smyths Toys’ official website and check if the product you’re looking for is available before going to a superstore near you. If it is available, make sure to get there a bit early, especially if you want to purchase an incredibly popular item—it might be out of stock before you reach the shop. 

Alternatively, use the shop’s Click n’ Collect feature and order the item so you can pick it up later in a shop near you. 

2. Be on the lookout for in-store events

When Smyths Toys Superstores opens a new store or promotes a new product, they tend to have free giveaways, special vouchers and the chance to meet some special guests. 

3. Sign up for the newsletter 

You can sign up for Smyths Toys newsletter or follow the company on social media and get notifications about discounts and clearance sales before anyone else. 

4. Look for extra savings

Use one of the top-rated cash back shopping apps to get more out of your purchase. Although cashback is not typically available when you shop sales, you could use your cashback card when you purchase items at full price and get extra savings.

Before You Start Shopping 

The biggest Smyths Toys sales are scheduled for the end of the year, which means you are not too late to take advantage of great deals and offers. Regularly check the company’s website for announcements of official Smyths Toy sale dates, get your shopping list ready, and surprise the youngest members of your family this Christmas.
