This Year, Make #BlackFridayMadeEasy with Toys “R” Us


Can you believe that Thanksgiving week is already here?

This year seems to have flown by ridiculously fast and, with my own family hitting a number of big milestones throughout the year, I could certainly use a few moments to catch my breath. Ever since welcoming my children into the world, the days come and go as if they were mere milliseconds and the kids have quite literally grown up right before my eyes. Every year, around this time, we go through the kids’ collection of toys and I cannot believe how much they’ve grown in just that year alone. We’ve gone from baby toys and favorite stuffed animals to toddler ride-on toys and preschool educational products and have since moved onto the “big kid” toys featuring favorite characters and even video games. It is hard to keep up with it all!

With Thanksgiving and, now, Black Friday just around the corner, we can’t help but think about all of the incredible deals that are to be found. Now, I am a Thanksgiving fan personally but I’ve dabbled in the craze that is Black Friday. For years, I was the one who was either working retail in the wee hours of the morning or one of the first to snag my must-have deals of the day. Since having my little ones, the Friday following Thanksgiving has turned into a day of holiday decorating and baking fun with the family. However, I have become quite the fan of the following Cyber Monday!

Of course, as parents, we always want to give our children the best of the best and, when it comes to toys, there is only one place to go – Toys “R” Us!

Gift-givers across the country are on the hunt for the latest and greatest gifts of the season for all of the wonderful friends and family that’ve made their gift list this year. At the end of the day, however, it is seeing the magic in a child’s eyes that truly brings out the spirit of the holidays. For that, Toys “R” Us has everything that you need and more to help put that spark of joy into the hearts of the children in your life. And, now, they’re making shopping easier than ever!

“Starting with the official kickoff of the holiday shopping season on Thanksgiving Weekend, as eager shoppers head to stores with detailed lists in hand – based on kids’ scribbled notes to Santa – our toy experts will be at the ready to remove the guesswork and ensure they find the toy, deal, service, or special offer to help them check off every gift with ease.”

You see, this year, Toys “R” Us has launched their #BlackFridayMadeEasy campaign to do exactly that – make Black Friday easy for shoppers everywhere, in-store and online!

Can’t wait that long? No worries! The online deals can be found as early as 10pm on Wednesday!

And, with that, I introduce you to the toys and deals themselves!

Toys “R” Us was kind enough to provide me with anadvance sneak peek of this week’s deals and gave me the all clear to go ahead and share the great news with all of you. I cannot tell you how excited I was to be able to check out all of the great prices, fantastic deals, special promotions, and so much more. My little ones and I scanned through this Toys “R” Us Thanksgiving Weekend circular ad and found our own favorites from the bunch so that we could share them with you. You and your family can do the same by picking up the circular in your local newspaper or direct from the Toys “R” Us website.
