On Sale: 25% Off With Toys R Us Family & Friends Sale

Will our poor wallets ever make it to Christmas? That’s right, there is another sale on. These non-stop sales are starting to completely eclipse the mid-year toy sales we had.

On Sale: 20% Off City & Friends At David Jones, Today Only

David Jones LOGO

It seems that one-day sales are the latest attempt to get us to part with our money before Christmas. Unfortunately this latest offer from David Jones is pretty lacklustre.

Today (18th November 2014) only David Jones are offering 20% off LEGO City and Friends sets.

Considering that Target has 20% off all LEGO, I doubt there will be many fans specifically making the trip to David Jones. If the sale included some of the rarer sets, like the modular buildings, it would certainly be more interesting.

On Sale: 20% Off LEGO At Target

Target Logo 2014

Surprise, another LEGO sale! We’re not sure how much more our current sales page can handle.

The latest offer is from Target, and while it is fairly standard it is also better than some of the recent selected set or selected theme sales.

From today (13th November 2014) until Wednesday 26th November Target are offering 20% off all LEGO.

On Sale: Buy One, Get One Half Price At Toys R Us

A Christmas gets closer the sales just keep coming.

Even though their previous sale is still running Toys R Us are kicking off a new offer; Buy one, get one half price. This offer runs from today (12th November 2014) until Monday 24th November and applies to selected themes only.

Toys R Us November B1G1 Half Price

For those who can’t see the image above the included themes are City, Creator, Juniors, Duplo, Star Wars, DC Comics Super Heroes, Friends and Disney Princess.

We aren’t sure how this offer combines with the existing sale; there is nothing in the terms and conditions that says it applies to full priced items only. We have sent a message to Toys R Us requesting clarification.

Pre-Christmas Sale Comparison [Updated]

In case you hadn’t previously noticed, there are a lot of sales on at the moment. This time around each retailer is offering slightly different sets in their sale, but with so many sales on it is inevitable that some sets may appear more than once.

At Bricking Around we love it when a set appears in more than one catalogue, because it means we can do price comparisons. We have pulled all of the sale data into one big spreadsheet and narrowed it down to the sets that appear more than once.

UPDATE: Big W have kicked off a new part of their sale with more sets included. We have updated the comparison to include those sets.

Be sure to check our Current Sales page, as different sales run for different periods.
