Just because you’re shopping last minute doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still get a deal! In fact, this Fisher-Price Little People Easter Eggs set sure seems like you could be getting a head start on an Easter basket (it’s 57% off!) Another cute Little People set is also 58% off- this Police Scooter is just $6.78! But my favorite deal of the day is the Fisher-Price Servin’ Surprises Kitchen & Table (on the right)- marked down to 50% off it’s original $80 today, just $40! With Amazon Prime shipping, all of these should arrive before Christmas if you order before 7pm EST (check out the details here). If you don’t have Amazon Prime, I’d suggest you check out MyHabit (Amazon’s private sale site) when everything always ships 2-day for free- you can shop there for Christmas delivery up until 6pm EST tonight! They have a bunch of kids clothes, Green Toys (including the dump truck for $19!) some great Thomas the Train deals, and some nice things for even the non-kids on your list on sale today!
We’re totally in the home stretch now! Remember that these last days before Christmas historically bring the lowest prices of the year- so don’t forget to snag a couple extras to keep for gifts throughout the upcoming year. It’s also an awesome time to donate to your favorite charity- we’ve listed a few of our favorites here, and you can even ship gifts directly to them- donating toys hardly gets any easier than that! There’s a bunch of bargains today, so let’s get right to them!
If you’ve ever seen that Pinterest meme about blowing bubbles outside when it’s below freezing (I hear it’s cool! And cold. Brr.) you’d probably be interested in the Little Kids No Spill Big Bubble Bucket (on the right) for 73% off it’s original $16, just $4!

Thursday (the 20th) is the last full day to order at Amazon for Prime (2-day shipping) delivery by Christmas, so I’d expect we’ll see some great deals leading up until then. Today is no exception, of course! Here’s a list of the best bargains I’ve found so far:

As parents, we’re still processing yesterday. I’m trying to distract myself by plugging along with our daily routine, and today there’s really quite a few bargains worth sharing. Please see the bottom of this post for some ways to help in Connecticut.
Fisher-Price Disney’s Princess Bowtique Minnie Mouse (on the right) is 56% off it’s original $17, $7.
Playskool’s Poppin Park Tumble Top is 60% off it’s original $15, $6.
Thomas the Train’s Take-n-Play Bridge Fold-Out Track is 56% off it’s original $12, $5.
Fisher-Price Disney’s Jake and The Never Land Pirates Jake, Hook and Croc Pirate Pack (on the left) is 58% off it’s original $11, $5.
VTech’s MobiGo 2 Touch Learning System in Pink is 65% off it’s original $60, $21.

And a few Automoblox wooden cars are 30-45% off, like this Mini X9-X Suv (on the left) for $9.
I don’t think there’s a parent out there who hasn’t hugged their child a little tighter and a little longer in these past 24 hours. We were looking for a way to help the Sandy Hook survivors, and honestly, I’m not sure anything material would go very far in that regard. But from a distance, it’s difficult to do anything more, and if there’s a chance an unexpected gift could bring a smile or provide a distraction from the horror in that small community, I think it’s worth a try. I’ve read a few articles about the Newtown Youth & Family Services in Sandy Hook, CT collecting donations, and their website lists their address to mail donations. I’m not sure they’d expect a bunch of toys showing up at their door, but I’m pretty certain they’d know what to do with them. I think we’ll ship a little order directly from Amazon, and they also accept PayPal donations on their website as well. Our prayers are with them.
There’s still plenty of bargains to be had out there, folks! Today we’ve got two Tonka Chuck toys with big discounts- the Get Ready To Race Chuck (on the right) is 42% off it’s original $23 and just $13 and the Chuck Tornado Tower set is 64% off it’s original $33 and just $12!
This Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Rumbling Gold Mine Run (on the left) is 44% off it’s original $45 and just $25! The awesome Step2 Deluxe Canyon Road Train & Track Table is at it’s lowest price in over a year at Amazon- $69 and ships free! That’s 31% off it’s original $100 and a great deal on this set with over 100 5-star reviews!
If you’re thinking about adding some features onto your wooden train tracks, check out this Mountain Overpass Set for 39% off (just $10!), this hilly Mountain Set for 33% off (just $17!) or a cute Thomas & Friends boat (Captain) for 24% off (just $9!)
UPDATE: Amazon also has this cute My Little Pony Train set for 54% off too! It’s just $13!
I’m sure we’ll see more deals today, I’ll post them here or on our Facebook page!
Holy smokes, there’s a lot of great deals out there today! First, I love how adorable this KidKraft Firehouse Bookcase is (on the right). It’s at the lowest price I’ve ever seen on it at Amazon- $82 with free shipping! That’s 47% off it’s original $155! The Kidkraft Deluxe Garage set is also a whopping 52% off it’s $130 retail and just $63 shipped!
The Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini seems like a smart idea for kids (or adults!!) that have trouble transitioning between activities- you set the timer for a certain amount of time and a yellow ‘warning’ light let’s you know when you’re getting close before it turns red when time’s up. I can see this being good for video games or tv time! Originally $20, it’s 36% off at Amazon today, just under $13!
Speaking of video games, Amazon has a nice little deal for Amazon Mom members today too. Amazon has the Disney version of the Just Dance Wii and XBox360 game on sale for $20, and Amazon Mom members can use coupon code DANCEMOM for another $10 off, making it just $10- 66% off it’s original $30! I haven’t seen this version in person, but I will say that the other versions of Just Dance are pretty much my favorite workout! Make sure that you’re adding the game sold by “Amazon.com” to your cart (and not a third-party seller) to be able to apply the coupon. It looks like they’re backordered for now, but you can still order at this price and they’ll ship it when it’s back in stock.
The gorgeous Melissa & Doug shopping cart (on the left) is on sale at Amazon for the lowest price I’ve seen in a long time- $37, 46% off it’s original $70! It has over 200 5-star reviews!
Leapfrog’s super-popular (and super-adorable) My Pal Scout (on the right) is also on sale for the lowest price I’ve seen him in a long time- just $15! That’s 40% off his $25 retail! You can even program him to sing your child’s name and their favorite things! I’d say he would make a great gift for a first or second birthday party too. A nice one to keep on hand!
Kohl’s has started giving out ‘Kohl’s Cash’ again, and there’s a 20% off coupon code floating around- making some pretty great deals there! I like this Playmobil Farm Playset that retails for $100, is marked down to $60, and after applying coupon code CCYT115, just $48! There’s also an awesome Playmobil Firehouse Playset for the same price! If you add a little something else to your order, you’ll also score $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you
spend, and be able to take advantage of free shipping on orders over $50. Ooh, and these wooden castle blocks are awesome too. Originally $40, down to $20, down to $16!
Amazon has the lovely Step 2 Fantasy Vanity on sale for 30% off it’s original $70 today, just $49 with free shipping! And if the new year is bringing a new start to potty training, the Baby Bjorn Smart Potty is 25% off in white, just $15!
There’s some great Amazon Lightning Deals coming up today, including Imaginext, Disney Princesses, and lots more- so be sure to check on them here and see what’s up next. These deals only last for a couple hours or until they sell out (which is usually much sooner!)
I haven’t been over to Books A Million in a while (it’s sort of like a Barnes & Noble if you don’t have one near you!) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that A BUNCH of their Melissa & Doug was 50% off! Puzzles, calendars, wooden toys, felt food, dress up, pizza party- ALL HALF OFF! Stamp sets for $3! Pattern blocks and Cutting food for $10! Their shipping charges are $2.99/order plus 99 cents per item- so you’d make out better with a larger order. They also have some great bargain books for 70% off!
Meijer has a really cute Caterpillar Tractor Pedal Ride On Toy for half off it’s original $200- $100 and it will ship free to your local Meijer or to your home for somewhere around $10 (depending on where you live!)
Amazon has the KidKraft Majestic Dollhouse (on the right!) on sale for 41% off it’s original $247, $145 with free shipping! It comes with 34 pieces of furniture and an elevator!
Amazon also has the primary colored version of their Nantucket Table and Chairs on sale for 46% off it’s original $186, just $99 with free shipping!
