Stock up on summer toys with Toys R Us summer clearance sales.

7 Aug

I recently saw a tweet from a fellow blogger stating Christmas was just around the corner.

I gasped.

Christmas in July? Bite your tongue, I told her.

I just can’t think about that yet. Last year was one of the worst winters in the history of my life and I am nowhere near ready to think of it approaching yet! Plus, this summer has been so short with barely any real heat to make it feel like a true summer in the first place.
Unfortunately, now that August is here, that means school will be here soon and once that starts it seems like Christmas season ends up right around the corner whether I like it or not.
End of summer isn’t all bad though. With its end brings summer clearance pricing and Toys R Us has great deals on a variety of their outdoor activities right now. Yard games, outdoor play structures, bikes, bubbles and beach toys are all on sale. Those may not sound like typical Christmas presents, but I take this opportunity to purchase those items I noticed were missing from our summer stock. I’ll usually end up saving a few of them for christmas gifts, but I have a nephew who’s birthday is in December (December 26th, to be exact!) and I always find it so hard to buy birthday presents on top of having to buy Christmas gifts. They all just tend to blend into one big gift and usually they are seasonal so when spring and summer do finally roll around, he’s always short on activity and gear for the hot months.  Stocking up on summer toys and gear at then end of the season allows me to not only spread out my christmas budget, but also ensures I get the best price on gifts and he gets a good variety.

If you are looking for a bigger purchase like a play structure, ToysRUS has Little Tikes play structures 20% off right now! The longevity and durability of these sets is unmatched and makes your investment worthwhile whether you’re buying for the first child or the last child.

Bikes and ride-ons are also on sale right now making it a great time to purchase a new one for next year if your child has worn theirs out this summer. What kid wouldn’t love a bike wrapped under the Christmas tree? Hey? Mine would think that is completely awesome!

Christmas gifts or simply preparing for next summer, whichever you want to look at it, now is the time to be scooping up those clearance deals and ToysRUs is the place do just that.

    I’m amazed (and impressed) that you found a good silber lining to the end of summer.
    I’ll keep an eye out for the big-kid toy sales, but autumn is my least favorite season.
