    The thing is you would need to scroll till end of page to let selenium know where is the button in view point.

    Code :

    driver.get("https://www.toysrus.com.sg/lego/")
    sleep(5)
    driver.execute_script("var scrollingElement = (document.scrollingElement || document.body);scrollingElement.scrollTop = scrollingElement.scrollHeight;")
    wait.until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.CSS_SELECTOR, "button.btn[data-url*='www.toysrus.com']"))).click()
    print("Clicked on ")

    wait=WebDriverWait(driver, 10)
    
    url= "https://www.toysrus.com.sg/lego"
    driver.get(url)
    wait.until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.CSS_SELECTOR,".affirm.btn.btn-outline-secondary"))).click()
    while True:
        try:
            wait.until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.XPATH,"//div[@class='show-more']/button"))).click()
            time.sleep(5)
        except Exception as e:
            print(e)
            break
    

    You should replace time.sleep() for the visibility of the spinner. But just wait for the elements to load in.

    allProducts=driver.find_elements_by_xpath("//div[@class='product-grid-wrapper']//div[@class='card product-tile product']")
    print(len(allProducts))
    

    Prints 346?
