It may not even be Halloween yet, but shopping for the holiday season is starting now. Why? Because Amazon’s “Big Deals Day” — basically October Prime Day — is currently underway. The retailer is offering deals to Prime members on toys for kids of all ages that will undoubtedly be going on a lot of holiday lists this year, so why not get an early start on your holiday shopping this year? You’ll save
money and avoid the stress of last-minute procrasti-shopping.
Below, you’ll find significantly discounted popular toys for under $50, along with some bigger-ticket items under $70, like LEGO sets and Barbie dolls with accessories. There are plenty of options for parents who want their kids to get in touch with their artistic or intellectual side, while others offer outdoor fun for the whole
family. Some of these will even help your kiddo sleep at night — how great is that?
