Mums show off their thousand-dollar hauls of toys from Big W's epic sale after lining up from 3am to grab bargains – and they're using a VERY old school method to pay for it in time for Christmas


Australian parents have been showing off their shopping trolleys overflowing with toys worth thousands of dollars from Big W's annual 'Toy Mania' sale.


Eager shoppers were up at the crack of dawn to snap up bargains, which kicked off online midnight Tuesday and in stores on Thursday.


Mums and dads rushed to one of the chain's 183 stores across Australia to secure their children's Christmas presents six months early.


Hundreds of shoppers opted to lay-by their thousand-dollar hauls, which means they pay for the toys in installments before taking them home just in time for Christmas.


Many of those shared pictures on social media showing their shopping carts loaded with this year's hottest toys – with discounts of up to 85 per cent on more than 700 products.
