Best Places to Find Black Friday Toys

Anyone who has any children whatsoever on their holiday shopping list knows that list gets even longer every time a new catalog comes out, or a new commercial for children’s toys airs. The present options for little ones are endless, and if you’re not careful, that’s what your spending can become. The best way to avoid the potential damage to your Visa bill is to set a budget and work a little Black Friday magic.

Baby Toys

Black Friday is undoubtedly a big event at Babies R Us, which is great news if you’re looking for baby toys. The Babies R Us sales are typically split into two categories: door busters that run from 5 am until close on Black Friday itself, and two-day sales that extend from Friday to Saturday. Either way you’re bound to get some good deals, but if you’re really looking to load up on cheap toys, set that alarm and get to your nearest Babies R Us for 5 am.

Toys for Toddlers

You’ll doubtlessly be unsurprised to read that we’re recommending Toys R Us for toys for toddlers on Black Friday, so you might as well queue up those Google map directions to the nearest one now. You’ll also want to note that Toys R Us opens up with its door busters sales at 8 pm on Thursday night, so if you want 50-60% off the hottest toys for toddlers like Rock Star Mickey, Tickle Me Elmo and Power Wheels, get those leftovers in the fridge and get on your way.

Children’s Toys

Even if the kids you’re buying for are a little older than toddler age, Toys R Us is still the place to be on Black Friday. Or, well, Black Thursday. Children’s toys including Playskool construction equipment, LEGO sets, Mega Bloks, Fisher Price dollhouses, and remote controlled cars will all be up to 50% off with door buster sales.

If you’re looking for your cheap toys to have a lasting influence on their young recipients, check out Toys R Us’s Leapfrog Learning Center toys – educational toys that teach skills like reading, writing and math are all up to 50% off with door buster deals. Also check out electronics like the Coby tablet, a nicely-priced android option for your budding computer kid, or the Leapfrog tablet the LeapPad.

If you can’t find anything quite right at Toys R Us, there’s always Walmart and Target which will have no shortage of cheap toys on Black Friday.
