Amazing deals at the Pop Toy and Gift Sale

Holiday shopping is in full swing! The malls, and stores are packed with enthusiastic (or not) shoppers trying to cross off all the people on their shopping lists. I’m all about shopping early and getting a good deal. Often with the expense of buying for so many people, the price of the holiday season can sky-rocket.

Let me tell you a little secret, because if you live in the GTA you’ll want to know about it. There is a toy sale located conveniently just off the Allen Rd and Shepard near Downsview Park. The Sale is run by Pop! Events Group.  Pop Events Group is a corporate event planning company that buys specially curated toys for various age groups all throughout the year for the corporate events that they run. They open their doors to the public during holiday season to sell off the extra items that were purchased throughout the year. Pop! Events Group also does interactive party rentals  such as a Slow Motion Video Booth, an Interactive Jelly Belly Station and Temporary Tattoos that adds to any party.

 The size of the sale is smaller than other large toy company sales in the Toronto so don’t expect a massive warehouse filled to the ceiling with toys. You can except to find prices are incredible! Seriously. I couldn’t believe that they carry items that are in stock at bigger retailers for a fraction of the price. You can expect to find toys for children from birth to teens with popular brands such as V-Tech, Hape, Alex Toys, and Melissa and Doug. New stock is always arriving so there is tons of items to choose from! The main room has the majority of the toys, there is a room with toys  at 40% off their ticket price that were samples. There is a room for baby items, another small room for discontinued items that Pop! no longer will be carrying and another room with smaller loot-bag type items.

The majority of toys are wrapped and shoppers are encouraged to buy the already wrapped toys. A little secret, if you are going to buy an item that is already wrapped there will be an unwrapped item on top. Take a picture with your phone of the wrapping and the toys so you can keep track of all the toys. Best of all, if a toy requires batteries it comes with the gift. No more forgetting the batteries or kids not being able to immediately play with a toy because the batteries were not included.
