Smyths Toys Will Be Giving Out Free LEGO In All Stores This Weekend
| Last updated
STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING, PEOPLE. Remember that stuff you used to play with as a child... the most versatile toy there ever was... the thing that now keeps your own kids quiet for hours...
Y'know, LEGO. Obviously. How could you forget?
And here's the good part: Smyths Toys superstores are giving it away for free as of 4 May, when all the company's shops throughout the UK and Northern Ireland will be hosting free LEGO giveaways starting from 9am.
It's a 'while stocks last' affair, so you'd better get yourselves geared up. Oh, and it's limited to one toy per child so maybe don't expect to come away with a sack full of plastic bricks.
There may even be surprise appearances from your little ones' favourite LEGO and Star Wars characters - we've got a win-win situation on our hands here.
According to the Mirror, the event has been set up to celebrate the arrival of new Star Wars and Marvel's Avengers LEGO sets in Smyths stores around the country.
It also coincides with the reveal of LEGO's new Harry Potter sets for 2019 which are available on the LEGO website and include the Knight Bus, Hogwarts clock tower and a Triwizard tournament set.
The special characters will be visiting the following stores:
Bristol - LEGO Emmet
Edinburgh - LEGO Lucy
Rayleigh Weir - Stormtrooper and Commander Versio
Tamworth - Special-Ops Trooper and Stormtrooper
Ashford - Two Stormtroopers
Sheffield - Imperial Gunner
Milton Keynes - Two Stormtroopers
Team Valley Gateshead - X-Wing and Luke Skywalker
Leeds Crown Point - X-Wing
Walsall S - Stormtrooper
Salford - Two Mandalorians
Luton - Two Stormtroopers
Taking to Facebook, Smyths Toys Superstores announced: "This Saturday 4th May, we have LEGO:registered: giveaways at your local Smyths Toys from 9am, while stocks last.
"Unlock your creativity at our imagination station AND receive a FREE LEGO:registered: giveaway.
Giveaways while stocks last. First come first serve basis. Strictly one giveaway per child. No purchase necessary."
One person replied saying: "Will you be doing an lol doll giveaway?" Some people are just never happy, are they?
Another joked: "When you say 'child'. I'm 47. That's ok, right??" Absolutely fine, my friend.
Last year, Smyths Toys Superstores held a similar event where they also gave families the opportunity to enjoy live LEGO demos and builds.
Sounds like Saturday with the kids is sorted for many, that's for sure.
