You could wait another week and fight the crowds, or you could start your toy shopping now from the comfort of your desk. (Or couch, if you have a laptop. Even better.) etoys has already begun their Early Bird Sale, with savings of up to 60% on hot toys of the season. There’s a bunch of other specials running concurrently, too, like free standard shipping on select games and toys.

My children are getting sticks and rocks this year, but maybe you’re a nicer mom than I am.


  1. both sticks AND rocks? Both?

  2. We’ve been telling our kids one is getting a bag of rocks, one a bag of dirt, and the other a bag of sticks. They don’t believe us. Little do they know… 🙂

  3. My son would be OVERJOYED to get sticks and rocks and dirt. He brings all three home from school in his pockets EVERY.DAY. They are highly treasured possessions, these sticks and rocks and dirt piles. Oh, and you would hear the protestations for MILES should Mommy-the-Neat request that we narrow down the treasure pile just a smidge, to, say two dozen rocks and sticks each and just one pile of dirt.

    Yessiree, Christmas is going to be CHEAP for us this year! Hee-hee!

  4. Thanks Mir! I ordered my son the Laser Tag 4-person set for $29.99 – regularly $49.99 everywhere else (even amazon).

    Now I just need to find batteries CHEAP!
