Holiday Joys, Holiday Toys: 5 Editors' Choice Kids' Toy Deals

By , dealnews contributor

Christmas is probably the one time a year that full-grown adults begin scrambling to snatch up toys in bulk. So this week, we're focusing on a few toy deals. Today's roundup is so tempting, we thought we saw Santa changing the coordinates on his sleigh GPS to take advantage of these Editors' Choice bargains — from LEGOs to a play castle.

  1. Rocking Bassinet with Disney Princess Cindy Doll
    Price: $19.97 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $21

    Is It Worth It?: Being a beautiful baby Princess Cindy can be tiring. Lay her down for sweet dreams in this charming rocking bassinet that also plays a gentle lullaby. Recommended for ages 3 and up.

    Although this price is available for Costco members only, non-members can pay just $1 more.

  2. Crayola Doodle Penguin bundled with the Little Tikes Travel Activity Center
    Price: $15.97 with 97 cents s&h
    Lowest By: $54

    Is It Worth It?: The Doodle Penguin can draw up to 50 pictures to color in, make dot-to-dot pictures, play games, and more, while the Activity Center features a dry erase surface, 10-page coloring book, eraser, and storage pockets. The Santa Moms and Dads make their list, check it twice, and find room for this ultra-bargain. Make sure to click "Select" next to the activity center, then "Add to cart" to get this combination.

  3. 5 LEGO MiniFigures
    Price: $10 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest by: $15

    Is It Worth It?: You should "figure" that a great many adults will buy these LEGO figurines for both their kids and themselves, including the author of this feature (who keeps a LEGO Yoda affixed to his wallet at all times). Toys "R" Us offers a selection of LEGO MiniFigures for $2.99 to $3.49 each, but if you add 5 LEGO MiniFigures to your cart, the price drops to just $10. You can mix and match from series 3 (pictured), series 4, and series 5, but you can't select which figures you'll receive from each set. Note that you'll need to opt for in-store pickup to get this deal.

  4. Little Tikes Endless Adventures SwingAlong Castle
    Price: $69 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $41

    Is It Worth It?: A kid's home is his castle as the Little Tikes Endless Adventures SwingAlong Castle features a telescope, swing, climbing rock, slide, steering wheel, and more. Safety features include a three-point belt to keep your child secured inside the swing. Little Tikes is a trusted brand for baby and toddler toys, so here's a deal that ranks high on many levels.

  5. 2 Fisher-Price Little People Cars 2 Wheelies Race Tracks
    Price: $34.46 in-cart with free shipping
    Lowest by: $27

    Is It Worth It?: The cost of just one of these sets is $27.57, already a very low price. Add two to your cart, and the per-set price drops to $17.23. Cross two kids off your shopping list at once with this Cars-themed track set, which features 2 feet of track and a ramp to send Lightning McQueen and Francesco Wheelies speeding along their way.
