Has it really been two years since we last saw these highly collectable trading cards?!
Today Sainsbury’s have confirmed a new wave of their popular LEGO Trading Cards, which previously saw over 400 millions cards collected within the six week period, that’s a lot of collecting and swapping 🤗
The deal seems to be the same, buy an album and get 2 packs for free, and every £10 spent in-store gets you one pack of four cards. Additional booster packs (of two cards) can be purchased for 50p.
This Year’s theme is centred on Food and is set to inspire and educate children about different cultures and their food.
