PARENTS have been raving about Aldi selling £2.99 Barbie dolls, which look perfect for Christmas.
The supermarket is selling the popular toys in store and they could be ideal for stocking fillers.
One mum took to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK to show off her bargain find.
She wrote: “Barbie doll was reduced for £2.99 in Aldi.”
The Aldi shopper picked up a tennis player Barbie, but said they also had teacher Barbies and nurse Barbies available.
They were also selling Barbies with pink or purple hair in their sale, which saw the dolls reduced from £6.99.
