Surviving Toy Shop Mocks Doomed Toys R Us

By Gary Cutlack on at

Small town high street shop chain Smyths, which at time of writing in March of 2018 is still in business, has launched a slightly poor taste promotion, where holders of a Toys R Us Gold Card can trade it in for a 20 per cent discount on a purchase.

It's a little bit like glorying in the failure of a rival and the loss of thousands of jobs, but hey! 20 per cent off some Lego you don't really need! The offer runs until Saturday March 31, which might be enough time to buy someone else's Toys R Us card off eBay if you have a high-value purchase lined up.

There's quite a big list of what you can't use it to buy on the Smyths web site, though, which includes video games, Amiibo toys, LEGO Dimensions and anything that's electronic. If you want a bit of Brio for a child you're in luck. [Facebook via Mirror]
