Many shoppers think they'll find the best deals on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. And while we saw an insane number of deals on both of these days in 2018, Black Friday and Cyber Monday do not always have the season's lowest prices on everything you want to buy — namely, toys.
In fact, over the years research generally indicates that the lowest prices and best toy deals tend to appear just after Cyber Monday and stretching into early December. In other words, if you are buying holiday gifts for kids this year, right now is when you should be shopping for the best toy deals.
We have seen tons of awesome toy deals pop up this week from major retailers like Walmart, Target, and Amazon — who are all clamoring to gain market share in the wake of Toys "R" Us going out of business. Toy deals featuring 50% off discounts are fairly common right about now, and we've even spotted deals on super hot toys like Legos and L.O.L. Surprise.
Here are the best toy deals right now. Be aware, though, that toy prices change all the time online — for that matter, prices on all kinds of products can fluctuate rapidly at this time of year. All the toys prices below were valid as of Wednesday morning, and they were all listed as in-stock and available for shipping at the time of publishing. But that could change at any moment.
