Now it’s officially time to play that Black Friday toy deals are here, and they’re drowning us in a sea of neon colors and loud noises — but if we can all brave toy sales, that means That’s a better birthday and christmas gift for everyone.
To help you along your journey of finding the perfect gift amidst all these Black Friday sales, we’ve got tons of toys that you or your kids might love.
Whether you’re looking for a birthday or Christmas gift for a loved one, or just want something for yourself (no judgment here), Black Friday has down loads of toy bases covered. We have offers on Playmobil, Lego, Barbie, Sylvanian Families, Hot Wheels, branded action figures and more, so there’s something for everyone in every age group.
Black Friday is often the perfect time to start shopping for toys for your little one, or even vintage collectors and enthusiasts. That’s because Black Friday presents a great opportunity to grab loads of toys at heavily discounted prices, which often makes Christmas shopping easier when you’re online.
This year, Black Friday is happening on November 26. In the US, it is already a busy time of year, due in no small part to Thanksgiving celebrations, but both US and UK shoppers should pay attention if they want the opportunity to make Christmas and holiday shopping as stress-free as possible. .
According to statistics site SpendMinutes, toys are among the most purchased items during Black Friday. This is somewhat understandable, given that the term covers a wide range of items, but the site also noted that US retailers Walmart were popular with Disney’s Frozen and Ryan’s World toys and games. .
Last year’s Black Friday in the UK was especially big for Osmo and Lego toys, games and sets. The first is a relatively modern range of educational products for children, while the latter should require no introduction. We expect great discounts to continue for these brands and more during the Black Friday sale period this year.
While we haven’t seen any outstanding deals yet, we can tell you about the top online retailers in both the US and UK to see the toys you might want to pick up when they get a discount later. Here’s where to look:

When will the best Black Friday toy deals start in 2021?
Last year, we saw toy deals from several different retailers go live well before the official Black Friday date. This is not unusual, and we fully expect this to happen in 2021, with deals potentially a week or two ahead. You can find toy deals especially early to help consumers stay ahead of the curve when it comes to Christmas shopping.
Of course, we’ll be updating the site and our social channels whenever Black Friday toy deals go live, which means you won’t miss out if you keep an eye on our coverage.
