While we are used to seeing great deals on toys at certain times of the year, such as when the holidays are approaching, this is certainly not the only time we buy gifts for our children. Maybe they’re having a birthday, or they’ve done something to deserve special treatment. Or maybe we adults just crave that burst of joy that comes from seeing our kids excited about a new toy. And we’d like to give you a little trick to do it while saving money: head over to Target’s toy clearance section online.
This secret has been hidden in plain sight: one of many tabs on the Target site that leads us to pages of dolls, vehicles, costumes and other toys our children will love, with discounts. 15%, 30% or even 35 percent reduction. And right now, you’re in luck if your kids are preschoolers who really like certain characters from TV or YouTube.
This means that if you have a “Paw Patrol”, “Ricky Zoom” or “Peppa Pig” fan in the house, there are several discounted toys to choose from. Ryan’s World continues to produce new mystery boxes and surprise toys, which means slightly older versions are being phased out.
Kids who aren’t Nickelodeon junkies have a few options we haven’t presented here, like a Gravitrax marble course starter set for $ 50.99, 15% off the list price. This will keep older siblings busy for days on end while their little siblings spin around the house with their brand new Moto Pups or snuggle up with a Kindi Kids doll.
Below are some of our favorite toys for sale in Target’s clearance section.
