When my son was little, it was all trains, all the time. He moved on from Thomas the Tank Engine to LEGO and stayed there for a loooong time, and despite the many late-night injuries I sustained from stepping on plastic bricks, I kind of miss those days.
Back then I usually stalked one super-expensive LEGO set all year to make sure he had one really special holiday gift, and because most big LEGO sets never get down to more than about 30% off it was always a bit of a challenge. I guess I should be pleased that now he just wants money, right?
Anyway! Let’s say you have a LEGO-loving, train-loving kid (or adult; no judgment!) in your life. You might want to hop on over to Target right now for this LEGO City Cargo Train set, currently 30% off and down to $140. You can get free shipping or free store pickup, and if you have a REDcard you’ll get another 5% off, too. Is that still expensive? Of course it is, but I doubt it’ll be any cheaper than this, so if it’s on someone’s list, this may be as good as it gets. (For reference: It’s still $188 at Amazon.)
