#WIN over a £1000 worth of toys! Our Toy Grotto is back and your little one’s are in for a treat!

***Competition now closed – Thank you for entering*** It’s that time of year again when we are starting to think about all things festive including tinsel, trees and TOYS. That’s right, tis the season to be jolly and this year we’ve got a cracking line up of the very best loved toys.

Following the huge success of last year we have built a bigger and better Toy Grotto.

We’ve got everything from collectibles and electronic toys to action figures and fashion dolls. With such a wide range to choose from, Very.co.uk really is the place to do your Christmas shopping, and with products for kids of all ages.

What’s even more exciting is that Santa’s stepped it up a notch and is embracing the world of technology. Being such a busy man and always on the move this time of year, you can now send your children’s Christmas list direct to via email.  There’s really no excuse to be missed off the list this year, since we KNOW all our Very shoppers are never naughty always nice. You can save the list for later and even post your child’s wish list over Facebook and Twitter, so you can spread the joy of giving to your family and friends.

To celebrate the launch of the grotto, we’ve created the ultimate Christmas Toy bundle that one lucky reader will have the chance of winning. Worth over £1000 we’ve got the most sought after products for underneath your tree and all in time for Christmas!

I would have loved the TMNT Lair as i remember the turtles from the first time around and used to love watching them back then

I would have just loved Jumping In Muddy Puddles Peppa Pig because I loved doing just that when I was young. I would never take my wellies off and probably looked so silly in the Summer in shorts and wellies. Now I would have an excuse, it would be because that’s what Peppa Pig and her Family do. 🙂 I think Peppa Pig is just amazing!!
