There comes a point in all our lives where we realize we have no idea what the kids like these days. It's sad but true: one year Santa's sleigh bell rings sweet in our ears, and the next year all we hear is a dull clacking sound as a niece patiently tries to explain what Hatchimals are. But all is not lost! The Coupon Code is here to act as your unsettling CGI Tom Hanks (does this extended Polar Express analogy feel labored?) and guide you to the hottest toys of the season!
For The Collector...
- This is the
toy of the year, and therefore it's extremely difficult to find (don't believe me? check out the virtual shelves of ToysRUs
). We tracked some down at Walmart
but if those sell out as well you can find one on Gamiss
for now, and use our exclusive promo code
to save a further 13%.
For The Gamer...
- It's not hard to understand why this game system is so popular: you can play it set up to your television like a regular console or play it on the go like a handheld device. Most retailers like GameStop
and Best Buy
aren't going below $299.99, but check out Amazon
for some deals on bundles of the system with games.
For The Musician...
DropMix Music Gaming System
- Aspiring DJs will nod appreciatively when they unwrap this game (DJs are too cool to squeal and jump up and down). From the box: "DropMix lets you play music like never before! In collaboration with the creators of Rock Band and Dance Central, this fast-paced music mixing game gives you a new way to collect, discover and combine favorite tracks." By itself, the lowest price we found was $84.99
, which makes it doubly crazy that Walmart is currently offering it bundled with a package of 24 AA Duracells–batteries are not included with the game itself–at the incredible price of $76.73
, with free shipping!
For The Racer...
Jetson Jupiter Scooter With LED Lights
- Move on over, Razor, there's a new scooter in town! This cruising machine has style and safety covered with its highly visible LED lighting display, as well as a rear fender foot brake to slow the roll. Pick it up for the very attractive price of $29.99 at Target
For The Builder...
LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Walker
- The coolest vehicle in the Star Wars
universe (I might have some strong Star Wars opinions
), this set clocks in at a highly manageable 449 pieces and a reasonable $31.97 at Amazon
. Of course, those with a bit more ambition might want to take a crack at the Death Star.
