    Hi @Summery - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. Great to read you have won with your PIP tribunal. Unfortunately no one can say for sure; the 8 weeks guideline is just that.....a guideline. Some have received it sooner, but there's no guarantee. If you get a phone call from the DWP, then often payment is put into place fairly quickly after that.
    Just a thought, but your little boy coming up to 2 won't know the difference between new toys, & secondhand. Perhaps see what there is in charity shops such as Scope, or try ebay. They can usually be wiped down with some disinfectant. Children outgrow their toys so quickly so perhaps you might find some great bargains secondhand. My children had a mixture of both new, & secondhand toys. :)
