Mums and dads will be pleased to see their foreign currency going further on buying toys, with the foreign exchange research from the Post Office revealing a stark 27 per cent difference between toy prices in London and New York.
The top toy travel money saving in the Post Office Foreign Exchange research was found on a Rubik's 360 puzzle, which was 48 per cent cheaper in New York than London. Transformers fans can expect to save 36 per cent on the Bumblebee Helmet. The new Barbie and The Three Musketeers doll can be bagged for 41 per cent cheaper in New York than if bought in London.
