  • Welly Spotted at Toys R Us Canada

    Yes, you heard that right. Welly is now showing up at Toys R Us' in Canada!

    So far, I've only seen the two types of models shown below.

    The first is a car carrier set, with the tractor based on the Scania. I have resisted adding this model thus far, but I suspect that I will give in really soon.

    Second are three different five packs, each with a distinct theme. Though I can't say that the model quality justifies the $10 price tag...

    No sign of single models yet, and I don't want to get my hopes up for them, but this could be an encouraging sign. I will say that the comparatively high prices for the models could deter sales, but only time will tell how well this goes.

    Cool thanks for the heads up! I am in Ontario and we still have a couple of TRU's in town. You're right about the pricing but TRU is always more expensive than say Walmart. Walmart sells MB 5-packs for $5. TRU sells them for $9 I do like the construction, police & fire five packs in the 2nd photo though.

      Wish I didn't live so far south of Regina these days! And our son just moved from Grand Forks, ND so that makes Winnepeg at a fair distance as well.

        Oooooh! I haven't seen them yet at the TRU location at Metrotown in Vancouver.. but I will keep my eye open for them. Much more interesting than the Zuru and HTI stuff.

          I was at the Metrotown TRU today, so I can confirm they've shown up as well.

                10.00 dollars Canadian i think is around 7.00 US.so not that bad of a price.for me it is 310 miles to the Canadian border.so no shopping for me.

                    I went to the TRU in Metrotown and grabbed the Police and Fire 5 packs. Didn't see the construction one though. $10 may be a bit higher being twice the price of HW and MBX 5 packs but how often can we still find new 1/64 Wellys in store?
