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!
“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.”
– Joe Venezia, Toys “R” Us
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!
Toys “R” Us rolled out their Black Friday deals earlier this week to some of their most loyal customers by granting its Rewards “R” Us members with early access to a slew of Black Friday deals. For everyone else, you can find spectacular deals on more than one hundred items, both, in-store and online!
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.
