However, according to a Walmart worker on social media, the store sets up at least one aisle in a way that can end up costing you.

Rachel Timsina, a former Walmart employee who goes by rachelt369 on TikTok, shared a secret about the toy department earlier this year.

According to Rachel, certain toys are intentionally turned on while being displayed on shelves.

The goal is to use the lights or noises created by some of the active toys to draw children toward the section.

With any luck, kids will find the source of the sounds and convince their parents to add a toy or two to their cart.

As she recorded herself walking through the aisle, multiple toys could be heard making noise without anyone pressing buttons.

Other Walmart workers in the comment section said they’ve noticed toys running without being operated.

“I work in the toy section and I literally thought it was a spirit possessing them or something,” one said.


Other commenters were less impressed by the revelation.

“That’s not really a secret. It’s a marketing technique,” another TikToker wrote.

The Sun contacted Walmart for comment.

Saving tips on toys and more at Walmart

Walmart regularly runs clearance sales on tons of items, including popular toys.

In addition, the store offers coupons on its website that shoppers can print out for in-store discounts.

Walmart also often places deals and discounted goods together at the front and back of aisles.

The next time you’re shopping at Walmart, you’ll want to stop by the endcap on either side of an aisle.

You might be able to find deals on select products or find other clearance items at competitive prices.

And there are plenty of cashback apps that offer rewards if you upload photos of your Walmart receipts, whether you’re picking up toys or groceries.

Ibotta is one of the most popular, and the company says its users save an average of $150 per year. 

The app accepts receipts from more than 2,000 retailers and applies to in-store and online shopping.

Another cashback app, Fetch also gives you rewards for snapping photos of your bills. 

You’ll earn points for every receipt you upload based on how much you spent, and you can cash those points in for gift cards.
