Remember a time before LOL dolls, Nerf and Bluey? Us too. Clearly we’re talking about the good old days.
Well, fellow child of the 80’s it’s time to shop your way down memory lane because ALDI Special Buys is taking you right back to your childhood.
We’re not talking brown corduroy pants or Choose Life t-shirts either. We mean specifically all the hottest items you either owned (or really, really hankered for) when you were a kid. It’s a retro toy fest!
The lust-worthy line-up reads like Christmas lists of days gone by, including Carebears on sale for $24.00, original mould My Little Pony for $14.99, Mr and Mrs Potato Head – both $14.99 – as well as Pound Puppies for $29.99.
For those who’d like to roll the dice retro style this ALDI Special Buy also includes old school Monopoly in a classic 1935 style box and Battleship up for grabs. Both will set you back $24.99.
Other throwbacks include a traditional styled Tonka Truck priced at $39.99 and a Spirograph – for $14.99. Remember how mesmerising all those cogs and wheels were before screens took over our lives?
For the kids of 2020 Rubik’s has enjoyed a massive resurgence so the ‘Retro Cube’ pack (with two cubes) at only $19.99 is a great gift to pop away if you can get your hands on one. Taking it even cheaper for stocking fillers there’s also the ever tangled Slinky, Spinning Tops and Dancing Ribbons, all a steal at just $4.99.
Needless to say, this walk down memory lane has caused a bit of excitement among shoppers. The ALDI facebook page has been lit with siblings tagging one another and neighbourhood besties reminiscing about playing with their childhood favourite toy.
Mark the calendar my fellow children of the 80’s, this ALDI Special Buy launches on Saturday 31 October and you’ll want to Beat It down to your local. Me personally? I’ll be Living on a Prayer to score my retro toy shopping list. Because Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Okay, okay… enough 80’s songs. We’ll see you there.
If you love shopping and want to know what else is hot you can’t go past this Kmart Handbag with a Sneaky Wine Tap, every mummy needs one. And don’t forget to keep your eye on the ALDI catalogue, we’ve got our fingers crossed they’ll be announcing their Alcohol Advent Calendar for 2020 real soon.
