The Best Toy Sales You Can Still Get in On
Once again, Christmas is right around the corner. And with the approaching holiday comes the need to finish all your shopping in time to have everything wrapped, labeled and placed neatly under the tree in time for Christmas morning (or Christmas Eve, depending on family traditions).
While Black Friday is synonymous with the best deals, there are still plenty of options when it comes to picking something up for all the kids that are on your list this year. If shipping delays are a concern, Target and Walmart’s websites will often let you ship to one of their stores if an item’s not in stock. As far as Amazon, there are options to have it sent to a pickup location, which can save a day or more on shipping time.
Now, from building sets to action figures to board games, here’s a look at some of the biggest toy sales that you can still catch in time for Christmas.
Rainbow High Series 3 Doll
As the name might suggest, the Rainbow High series takes a color of the rainbow for each doll. In addition, they’re each modeled after real-life designers and fashion trends. Now on its third series, it’s more sought-after now than ever. Luckily, fan-favorite Sheryl Meyer is currently on sale for $20 (down from $29) on Amazon.
Disney TonieBox Starter Set
A screen-free speaker designed specifically for younger ears, the Disney TonieBox starter set features plenty of Disney favorites and is durable enough to withstand the most hectic of playtimes.

Normally $129.99, it’s on sale for $99.99 at Target.
Hover 1 Astro Hoverboard
Glide around the neighborhood in style with the Hover 1 Astro hoverboard, sporting a 200W Dual Motor that delivers speeds of 7 MPH speeds with 9 miles of extended range.

The hoverboard typically retails for $229.99, but is 24 percent off at Target, bringing it down to $175.
Star Wars The Mandalorian Galactic Snackin’ Grogu
An interactive, animatronic toy based on the breakout star of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, Grogu comes with four accessories, which cause different reactions from the toy when placed in its hands.
