Aldi is selling Barbie dolls for the first time this Christmas

Christmas is on its way and everyone is going toy crazy.

Parents are all trying to get their hands on all the top Christmas toys of 2018 before they sell out because, of course, everyone wants their children to find their Christmas list wishes under the tree in the morning.

And now budget supermarket Aldi is aiming to make that just a little bit easier for you.

Last week, they announce they would be selling the Christmas sellout Hatchimals for the first time ever, and now the high-street superstore has revealed they’ll also be selling official Barbie dolls for the first time too.

Shoppers can now get their hands on the new mermaid Barbie dolls while they’re doing their weekly shop, not a Christmas catalogue in sight.

Aldi’s Dolphin Magic Mermaid Barbie Doll comes with a two-in-one outfit that includes a coral mermaid fin that is water suitable so the perfect toy for bath time.

If your kids are more the outdoor activities type, you can get the Dolphin Magic Snorkel Barbie Doll. Barbie comes wearing a brightly coloured blue snorkelling top and shorts that changes colour when it hits warm water. The set also includes Barbie’s water-squirting puppy and dolphin friends.

And the even better news? You can make a whopping 46 per cent saving when you shop for the childhood classic at Aldi.

Both dolls are available for only £14.99 each, compared to elsewhere where they can sell for up to nearly double the price at £28 each.

Aldi’s two new additions will be on sale as part of the store’s Specialbuys range so, as any loyal Aldi shopper will know, they’ll only be available for a limited amount of time.

You’ll be able to pre-order them online from Sunday 18 November or if you’d rather just add it to your shopping basket along with your weekly shop, you can get them in-store from Thursday 22 November.

Though, there’s no word on whether Ken will be joining his other half down the Aldi aisles though.
