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:
