Smyths giving away free Squishmallows - if you move quickly

Parents are rushing to Smyths to get a popular toy being given away free. Only two problems - only one per customer, and they are likely to run out quickly.

The popular Squishmallows are being handed out as part of their May half term event and shoppers can't get enough. Smyth's announced they would be giving away the 6cm toys in all their stores across the UK from 9am today (Saturday, May 25).

This offer was part of a special event to celebrate Half Term for school children, with face painting and goody bags also available. There are Smyths stores across the West Midlands, including in Castle Vale, Birmingham.

If you couldn't make it to your nearest store today, don't worry because Smyth's has confirmed that the toys will be available while stocks last. So, it's still worth heading down to your nearest store to see if any are left.

The only rule is they are limited to one per person, but this gives you a better chance of grabbing one this weekend. The exciting news was shared by a delighted customer on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook, with their post receiving more than 700 comments.

Fellow parents were thrilled with the news of the free giveaway for their children and couldn't wait to get to their nearest Smyths store.

"They are the best," one individual commented.

Another person chimed in, saying: "My girls will love these."
