Best Easter Ever! Toy Deals That Are Too Cool for Baskets


Easter Sunday is April 20, but we're pretty tired of the Easter Bunny* getting all the credit around this time of year. He comes hopping in with all those colored eggs and baskets full of candy, and Mom and Dad are left to clean up the wrappers. No more! This year, we've rounded up five toy deals that are too awesome to put in a basket. Surprise your kids with a Power Wheels Dune Racer for $79, save $242 on a cedar swing set, and get 20% off three or more LEGO sets.

*You can say you don't think the Easter Bunny is real, but we don't get a basket if we don't believe, capiche?
