There was help at hand last weekend for adults agonising over what toys to buy their offspring for Christmas, thanks to Tesco.
The supermarket enlisted the aid of four children under ten to staff a 'Toy Tester Hotline' on Saturday, November 5, which put upon parents could call for advice.
Beau Culleton (aged 5), Kai Sneddon (aged 6), Scarlett Lobb (aged 7) and Hudson Lobb (aged 9) were the experts selected to guide grown-ups on their toy purchases.
The children spent four hours dispensing advice on the must-have toys of the season, having first been let loose in Tesco's toy department to carry out some intensive product testing!
Tesco decided to enlist the aid of its little helpers after undertaking a poll of 2,000 parents of children aged 0-16 and discovering that a whopping 66 percent did not know what to buy their kids for Christmas.
