Trade in your toys for a good cause

Trade in your toys for a good cause

Take your old teddies, dollies and other toys into Argos, as part of the annual Argos Toy Exchange, and you'll be helping a top children's charity. The shop will reward your generosity with a £5 voucher, which will help you get your Christmas shopping started.

Of course, there may be a specific teddy (or two!) that you can't stand to part with, and you won't be alone on that. It turns out that 3.8 million grown-ups snuggle up to their favourite toy after a hard day, and a quarter of us still own a childhood companion.

The research from Argos also found that one in five women have their toys on display in their homes - do you?

The exchange runs from now until Friday November 20. For more information click here.
