Why buy at Argos?

Half-term is upon us Argos to the rescue

Half-term should be a wonderful event, when the kids are home and you can spend time having fun as a family. At least that’s the idea – unfortunately it’s hard to prepare for the onslaught of energy that’s usually absorbed by learning and playing at school. But just because its half-term doesn’t mean the kids can’t learn. STEM toys are an amazing way to engage their cognitive skills in a fun and novel way. Our range includes educational science toys, coding toys, robotics and much more, perfect for inquisitive future-engineers.

Argos to the rescue

With Argos, there is no need to worry about running out of ways to keep the kids occupied. Our non-stop toys offers on toys for all ages and interests mean you can cover the whole week in one basket for a much lower price than you’d expect.

Kids love to combine technology with fantasy, so why not keep them occupied for a few hours by shipping them off to a different world with a movie (or two)? Whether you fancy a smart TV or prefer the DVD or Blu-ray route, we’ve got the gear you need. For suggestions of child-appropriate video games and consoles, ideas for family gaming or advice concerning parental controls and safety, visit our gaming for kids page. You may say this is the easy way out... and you would be right, it is, but there will come a point where you deserve the break.
