    Mattel's two week Christmas close down comes to an end on Monday. Most of the stores I've visited over the last couple of weeks have had almost no Cars singles or other mainline products on display.

    The general exceptions have been Disney Store Oxford Street has had loads of old stock, which just hasn't sold. As the numbers on the pegs have reduced, they have topped them up with 995B stock. The newer stock has been put at the front and that's been selling but not the older stuff behind! I have made a few suggestions to the staff but for one reason or another none of them have happened, even if the duty managers agreed that what was happening wasn't right!

    Tesco supermarkets have all got a few singles (£6) and deluxe (£12) so they maybe in a position for new stock.

    Sainsburys generally have the same levels of singles and older deluxe. Their prices also appear to vary store to store!

    ASDA generally have no stock at the moment. As they had a pretty good 2014 there's some hope they might get some new stock soon!? Toon singles (£5), regular singles (£5.97). They did have the Ice Racers, but even at their high price they've just about all gone!

    Toymaster have generally got just a few singles. They could be ripe for a delivery?

    TRU stock varies from store to store. They generally sold shed loads of Ice Racers at the *bargain* price of £6.99. Regular singles (£5.99) and Classics (£5.49) have also just about sold out in all the stores I've visited. Hopefully, they have learned that they could be a major player if they maintain regular deliveries and stock levels.

    Wilko really only carry Cars in the pre-Christmas run up. As they sold most of their stocks (Timothy Twostroke case), they are not really expected to restock. Maybe Mattel is running out of options and could tempt them with a good price?

    Department stores generally only carry Cars in the pre-Christmas run up. Bentalls / Fenwicks are the exception. That said, the space devoted to Cars is much reduced from even two years ago. They overstocked on Finn deluxe (didn't everyone?) and now they are quite conservative with their stock levels!

    TRU have reduced the frank tractor tipping playset down from 29.99 to 14.99 if anyone is after it.

    One of my local sainsburys had possibly three new different cases in today (the Todd/Hugo case, the geartrude case and the Sally with tattoo case - or is geartrude in that case again?).
