Parents of curious children may have found a way to keep their first festive purchases a secret until Christmas morning.
Home Bargains spy alarm item costs customers Â£ 1.99. This is basically a motion activated alarm that will make a loud noise when it detects little hands rummaging through bags.
It was shared in a Facebook group and now the parents have jumped at the opportunity to grab the purchase opportunity.
Other alarms on the market cost up to Â£ 6, so this Home Bargains version is really a steal.
It’s great for families who have upped their game and started shopping in September, especially following a warning from LatestsDeals last week that buyers are expected to start early this year.
In a Facebook deals group, one parent said, âGreat if you have kids like mine who like to snoop around all of their gifts. I can’t wait for it to fire when they think they have a devious look. , Â£ 99 Home Bargains “
The Snoop alarm keeps kids from getting close enough to look at their party favors and emits a siren as loud as 90 decibels and a flashing red light.
A customer said: “You need this … like to stop you snooping”
âCould get this for the snack closet to stop Teddie from looting it,â another joked.
Another comment read: “I wish they had it when the kids were younger”
One customer said: “I would forget that and knowing my luck started when my daughter took a nap”
