Cost Effective Ways to Keep the Kids Entertained over the Summer

12 June 2019

Any parent will know that it’s very easy to swiftly run out of ways to keep the little ones occupied and stimulated, especially during the spring and summer time. Eventually, many of us feel we have no choice but to revert to hour upon hour of kids’ TV.

However, this really doesn’t have to be the case! B&M have reduced the prices of a wide range of items specially designed to keep the younger members of your family engaged during the summer break. Read on for our top picks, including cheap LEGO sets, games, activities and plenty more.

Disney Galore

Toy StoryDisney has been a beloved favourite among youngsters and adults for generations, and with the hotly anticipated Toy Story 4 hitting cinemas in late June, it’s the perfect time to stock up on super-fun themed treats.
For hours of entertainment, we really love the Toy Story Carnival Playset - a bright collection of high quality cheap kids toys suitable for children aged 3+. It includes miniature Woody and Ducky figures, a moving ferris wheel and an interactive Bottle Knockdown game!
Youngsters can add to their Toy Story world with blind bags of Toy Story Minis. Each one contains a surprise character - you may find Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye or a wide range of others.


Disney toys
For little ones who love make-believe, our Disney Princess Doll & Dress Up sets are a dream come true. Watch them transform into Belle, Rapunzel or Ariel as if by magic with these beautiful costumes - plus, each comes with its own matching princess doll. They’ll adore these fun, cheap kids toys, and the adorable outfits really are the icing on the cake.

Kids who love play-acting will also thoroughly enjoy this cool Cash Register Play Set. Watch them set up their own little make-believe shop, and challenge their adding-up skills while you’re at it!

Cheap Lego

LEGO has been loved the world over for many, many years, but it’s often hard to find affordable sets for your kids to enjoy. Luckily, B&M stock a huge selection of cheap lego - perfect to keep youngsters entertained on a rainy day.

We love the awesome Sunset Track Racer that can be built in three different ways (it even becomes a speed boat)! Set up a race track in your living room, adding obstacles and cool features with the help of this big box of cheap LEGO Classic Creative Blocks. The time will whizz by.

Race Anywhere!

If your little one has a playdate with another racing fan, this awesome Rapid Racers Truck Transporter is superb. It’s a cool truck-shaped carry case that holds six cars and all the accessories they’ll need to turn any room into a race track. It makes tidy-up quick and easy too. Pop all their favourite cheap kids toys inside and they’re off!

Do you have a budding scientist in your midst? They can create their own Slime with the help of this super cool Mega Slime Kit from Weird Science. There are many different types to achieve, including neon, foam, scented, glitter, confetti, glow and monster.

If arts and crafts are more their cup of tea, watch them dig into the Hobby World Mega Craft Box, which includes all the tools and materials they need to channel their inner artist or maker. Cheap kids toys have never been so creative!
