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.
