We’ve got the leaked Toys R Us Black Friday ad and our crack team of deal experts has analyzed the lengthy list of toys to come up with our picks for the top five best deals that Toys R Us will be offering on Black Friday.
Black Friday at Toys R Us starts at 5pm on Thanksgiving night with a collection of “4-hour deals” that will only be available from 5pm to 9pm. A second round of “Bonus Doorbusters” starts at 5am on Black Friday and runs until the doors close on Saturday while supplies last. Additionally, shoppers who spend $75 or more will earn $10 to spend on a future purchase.
A word to the wise: Pay close attention your shipping charges if you’re ordering online. Toys R Us shipping fees can vary wildly depending on the item. We recommend using the in-store pickup option if your order doesn’t qualify for free shipping.
Top 5 Toys R Us Black Friday Deals:
Furby Boom: $29.99
The $29.99 price point beats the best price we’ve seen to date on Furby Boom by $21. Furby Boom made nearly everyone’s hot holiday toy lists. We’re calling it now: This will be the toy that leads to video footage of in-store fist fights on your local evening news. If you don’t get yours early, you’ll be looking at reseller markups on eBay.
Power Wheels Lil’ Kawasaki: $49.99
These battery-powered toddler-sized vehicles come in “Sport Quad” and “Barbie” styles, and are a steal at 50% off.
Let’s Rock Elmo: $19.99
Elmo toys are always a big holiday seller. What’s more, originally priced at $69.99, this is one of the biggest discounts in the entire Toys R Us ad.
Leapfrog LeapPad 2 Explorer: $39.99
These kid-friendly educational tablets are 50% off for Black Friday, and that puts them at the lowest price we’ve ever seen. These sold out everywhere during the holidays two years ago, and their popularity has remained high ever since.
Hero World Batmobile: $19.99
One of our editors described this Batmobile as “impressive in person”. And with superheroes being big business this year, it was a no-brainer to include Batman’s favorite ride in our list.
- Hello Kitty Cosmetics Light-Up Vanity – $12.49 (50% off)
- Little Tikes Easy Store Table or Slide – $29.99 (40% off)
- Character-Themed Flip-Open Sofas – $29.99 (40% off)
- Play-Doh 4-pack – $1 (75% off)
- Monster High High School Play Set – $29.99 (60% off)
What to Skip:
While we’ve seen a lot of coverage of the game bundles featured in the Toys R Us ad, Brad’s Deals Tech Editor Mike had this to say about them:
“The buy 1 get one for $1 game deal is a pretty good deal since the priciest titles that qualify are $19.99 (so its really 2 for $20) and the same goes for the BOGO 40% deal, but they both have one major drawback: both the PS4 and Xbox One are released on the 22nd and all the games in the images appear to be for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The new consoles aren’t backwards compatible so none of the games on sale would work for with them.
So they’re good game deals for people with the current systems (a.k.a everyone by now) who want to pick up some games for cheap, but the “awesome-a-year-ago” 360 and PS3 bundles would be an odd choice for any gamer.”
In short, the game deals are only good if you’re interested in a last-gen console or have no plans to upgrade the one you have. Otherwise, these deals are not going to be worth your time.
