If you need tons of toys

Oh, I know it’s only the first week of November. But holiday toy shopping can be an endurance event for some of us.

If you’ve got some patience and time, it’s worth wading through the Big Outlet Blowout Sale over at eToys; various on-sale items are marked down additional amounts, plus most items ship for free with your $49+ purchase. (Sidebar: I kind of hate the layout on eToys. Really, most items qualify for that free shipping, even though you sometimes have to click through to the detail page and then look around to find the icon. Silly.)

This is the first year I have a kid who really doesn’t want toys as much as she wants things. Sigh. Guess I’ll have to turn all of my toy-buying inclinations onto other small family members and our charitable donations. Oh well!


  1. Lol, my niece asked for (among other things, of course) a set of nice sheets for her 15th birthday. Um. ok.

  2. Any idea when the monday markdowns on toys start at amazon?

  3. Yeah, the only thing that qualifies as acceptable toys around here are Legos and board games. The rest are expensive DS and Wii games…tiny little things to wrap up that cost serious $$$!

  4. I’m really hoping for great Playmobil deals this year. Those little buggers are expensive!

  5. Fisher Price Trio sets. Any sales yet?
