Morrisons launches huge half price toy sale that's perfect for buying Christmas presents | The Sun

MORRISONS has launched a mega toy sale just in time for the Christmas present buying season.

The retailer is offering up to half price off on items ranging from a Peppa pig playhouse to a Cocomelon musical bedtime JJ doll.

Customers can find discounts on top brands including Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher Prices

The sale is on in Morrisons stores only – you won't find the discounts online.

The supermarket has 423 stores and you can find your nearest using its store locator tool.

David Catton, toy buyer at Morrisons, said: “We’re reducing the price of our toys now to help customers spread the cost of the festive season and tick off some important jobs."
