Top 10 Toy Deals for Black Friday 2009

Top Ten Toy Deals of Black Friday 2009

In our previous article, Hot Toys for the 2009 Holiday Season, we covered the five most popular children's toys for the upcoming Holiday season. Unfortunately, retailers are well aware which toys are hot items and thus, they are rarely in-stock and almost never go on sale.

This article does not exclusively focus on the "hot" toys and instead is a brief highlighting of the best available deals on more commonly-available, popular children's toys.

I know what everyone is thinking: what could a male college-student possibly know about children's toys? Which is exactly why this article was written by Carli Entin, an associate editor at Scholastic and author of the website PresentProfessor.com.
  1. LEGO: Star Wars: The Twilight
  2. $60 (Reg. $100) at Toys R Us
    Star Wars: The Clone Wars is still a hot property, and at 40% off, this is a great deal.
  3. Air Hogs Micro Zero Gravity Radio Control Car
  4. $15 (Reg. $27.97) at Walmart
    One of the most popular toys from last year returns at a micro price.
  5. Razor Ripster
  6. $35 (Reg. $59.99) at Kmart
    A bit smaller than the original RipStik, designed for people "with a narrower stance" and for those interested in tricks. Also for those who want to save an extra $15; The RipStik classic is on sale almost everywhere (including Kmart) for around $50.
  7. Furreal Friends S'mores Pony
  8. $99.99 (Reg. $299.99) at Toys R Us
    Finally, a price befitting a toy, not an actual pony.



  9. Barbie 60-piece Doll and Furniture Gift Set
  10. $29.99 ($59 value) at Target
    Alone, the four "room" sets are hard to find and cost at least $13 each at Amazon.com; together, they are a formidable pink powerhouse.
  11. Wild Planet Animal Scramble Game
  12. $4.98 (Reg. $19.99) at Toys R Us
    The critically acclaimed active learning game at one-fourth its original price.
  13. Hot Wheels Trick Tracks Colossal Stunt World
  14. $19 ($40 value) at Walmart
    Similar Deal: Hot Wheels Trick Tracks Jumbo Stunt Set
    $19.99 (Reg. $39.99) at Kohl's
    What's the difference between Colossal and Jumbo? From what I can tell, Walmart gives you one more car a little more bang for your buck.
  15. Transformers Animated Bumper Battlers
  16. $4.39 (Reg. $10.99) at Toys R Us
    Quick transforming action figure/cars for the younger set. Get two so they can "battle."


  17. Littlest Pet Shop Exclusive 2009 Around the World Set
  18. $19 at Kmart (Exclusive)
    A better Littlest-Pet-per-dollar ratio than Target's exclusive set, with 12 pets and accessories.
  19. Graco Interactive Smart Baby Doll with stroller, high chair, playard, travel bag, and changing pad
  20. $24.99 (Reg. $49.99) at Target
    For the money, the best doll deal of the day.
