With just a couple of months to go before Christmas, retailers are seizing the chance to tempt shoppers with some early toy bargains.

The latest big name to join in the fun is Toys R Us, which has launched its massive clearance sale.

It is offering major discounts of up to 50% off everything from baby clothes and products, to kids’ bikes, puzzles, games and action figures.

The future of the company is up in the air, somewhat, after it filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and Canada as it attempts to restructure its debts.

The aim is to give Toys ‘R’ Us money and time to prepare for the upcoming Christmas shopping season – but the move does not appear to have threatened any jobs on the firm’s stores outside of North America.
