Best Toys R Us Black Friday Deals From 2013
One of the largest toy retailers in the world, Toys R Us offers an online store and hundreds of retail locations for toy shoppers around the country.
Spanning 32 pages, the 2013 Black Friday ad featured specials throughout the three-day sale. Beginning with deals from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, the holiday shopping continued as stores stayed open all night Thursday and through 10 p.m. on Black Friday. Saturday marked the last opportunity for bargain hunters. Furthermore, shoppers who spent at least $75 Thursday and Friday received a $10 card toward future purchases.
Although the window for the four-hour sale couldn’t fall at a more impractical time – right in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner for many – the sale featured 50-60% discounts on some great items, including:
- Leapfrog LeapPad 2 Explorer: $39.99 (50% off)
- Skylanders Swap Force starter pack: $37.49 (50% off)
- Despicable Me 2 Dancing Dave: $24.99 (50% off)
- Cra-Z-Loom extravaganza set: $21.99 (55% off)
- Doc McStuffins doctor’s bag set: $7.99 (60% off)
