I’m obsessed, so you don’t have to be

Slowly, slowly the Amazon toy markdowns are trickling in. When the deals are good I can get most of my shopping for the coming year done this way, so you’d better believe I’m hanging on every price change. Yes, I probably need other hobbies. But in the meantime, here I am.

Here’s some good ones I’ve bookmarked today:
K’nex value tub for $15
Wild Planet Hyper Dash for $12
Wild Planet Animal Scramble for $10
Trivial Pursuit Digital Choice for $10
Trivial Pursuit Team for $10
Blokus 3D for $10
CirKis for $8
Star Wars Captain Rex helmet for $20

And no, I’m not getting anything useful done today, why do you ask?

[Edited to add: Also, the Holiday Lightning Deals are killing me dead. This awesome globe puzzle is coming up in about five minutes. How cool is that??] [Edited again: $15 for the globe puzzle! Awesome.]


  1. Wow, Mir, that globe puzzle was amazing, glad I got to it on time because it was all claimed within 5 minutes! With such good reviews, it will be a great (& probably maddening) thing to occupy us over the holidays.

  2. Thanks for the globe heads-up. Straight into the gift stash for an upcoming geography-obsessed nephew.

  3. I totally just set my alarm to check back on some of those other deals.

  4. Oh, rats! I hesitated for about 5 minutes thinking about who would like a globe puzzle–came up with the perfect solution and then they were gone.

  5. That was a good deal. I bought one for my son for almost $40 for his birthday oin November. The pieces are numbered on the inside in case you are looking for an easy way out:)

  6. Damn! I missed out on the Mario Battali Dutch Oven for $56 – I have one in my cart (the wrong color!) and it’s at $74.

    Oh well!

    Thanks for keeping me up to date on the deals!

  7. I purchased 6 games for Christmas gifts for families. THANKS SO MUCH!!!! Any more?

  8. $25 for a huge 700+ piece Lego set….jump on it!!!
