"...late despite a resolution at the beginning of the year that this time things would be different. I am of course talking about Christmas....and I can tell you that good Saint Nick has a lot to answer for in our house. This is the time of year when the children constantly want to know if I concider them to be being good, and it is also the time when everytime the Argos book comes out ,my husband bolts from the room as fast as his legs will carry him. So ..." Read review

Let them entertain you!

AdvantagesFantastic store, well organised, clean & tidy, helpful staff, some great special offers.

DisadvantagesSome items can be quite expensive compared to similar stores or supermarket prices.

"...want! When you first enter the store you will see shelves and shelves of toys everywhere you look, everything from play dough to electric toys to board games and everything is very well organised with entire shelves dedicated to Teletubbies, In The Night Garden, Board Games, Playdo and various other toys/programmes that children love. This makes it fairly easy to just enter the store and head to whatever section sells the toys that your child or ..." Read review

Bargains Galore AGAIN

AdvantagesThe all year round bargains that are to be found, wide aisles and a good range of toys

Disadvantagesshelves tend to be filled with older toys

"...... will leave most of the op as it was, just add a few more comments and bit more information. We have several toyshops in our town but the Entertainer is always the one that I go to first when looking for toys. It has many toys in a sale all the year round so is always good for finding a bargain. Always a good thing when there seems to be so many kids birthdays to buy for!! .... NEW .... The Entertainer was started up by Gary and Catherine ..." Read review

Goodies galore

AdvantagesCan find lots of little goodies, very cheap, cheerful staff

DisadvantagesCan get really busy at times

"This is possibly the best toy store around, although it does appear that the amount of stores are fairly low. The prices are fantastic, quite often the toys arent the brand new ones out on the market but still appeal to kids. For example, my nine year old keeps going on about a Furby, but I wouldnt buy one at the time because they were too expensive. Well the Entertainer was selling them for £4.99, saving me around £20, Bargain I say! It also ..." Read review

Toys, Toys, Toys


DisadvantagesNot much selection

"The Entertainer is a handy toy store to have locally. I find them affordable to the point of cheap for certain items, but in my local store there is not a great selection. Usually the best value for money items are the non fashionable things. They do also sell, and are competatively priced for the latest crazes. They have ranges for most age groups, boys and girls, traditional types of toy and current "must haves". There are usually less ..." Read review

Very unhappy customer


DisadvantagesVery very poor customer service when things go wrong

"...children titled 'Discover Sounds' from the Solihull store. The sound they made was so soft as to be inaudible. Despite 3 visits to the shop, one email and two letters to head office, I have not received a satisfactory response. Emails do not get answered and the store hands it over to Head Office who to date have not responded. My claim is they are not fit for purpose and should be returned to the manufacturer. I have since purchased two Fisher Price ..." Read review

Very Dissappointed Customer

Advantagesnever used it so cannot say

Disadvantagesno refund or credit if toy unsuitable.

"...discourteous. I was told the toy had been used (not by my grandchild it wasn't) therefore it must have been used when sold to me. The box was slightly rippled, It was raining cats and dogs the week after Christmas when I initially tried to return it, Contacted Customer Services, took two weeks to get a reply when their website clearly states 'reply within 24 hours'. I eventually called them and was told no refund, no exchange for something suitable. ..." Read review
