ALDI selling retro toys in Special Buys

ALDI is bringing us back to days gone by with its latest blast from the past Special Buys event. The discount supermarket will be selling a collection of ‘retro’ toys and games from this Saturday (October 31), including Mr & Mrs Potato Head and a retro Monopoly!

Aussie parents are already excited about bringing these throwback toys back to the present, perhaps to put under the Christmas tree this year? It’s also got educators pretty keen, with teachers sharing the latest Special Buys catalogue on the ALDI Teachers Australia Facebook page. Social media users say the toys could be handy props for history lessons. Right!

Here are some of the nostalgic treasures you’ll find in your local ALDI’s middle aisle this weekend:

Retro Battleship & Monopoly Games − $24.99 each

This edition of the Monopoly game comes in a classic 1935 style box. Battleship was inspired by the original game where two players try to sink each other’s hidden ships.
