Black Friday is famous for deep discounts on consumer goods – but it also presents the perfect opportunity to nab a cheap toy deal for Christmas. 

And with the coronavirus pandemic leaving consumers with tight wallets, everyone is looking for a good deal.

Toys R Us is offering discounts of up to 70%, while Toy Kingdom is running a 4 for 3 special on everything in stock, all day. Prices on Takelot weren’t really looking promising on the toy front, and LEGO giant Kiddiwinks is offering a 25% discount on online purchases, and 20% off in-store. 

By Friday morning, a lot of the online stock on Toys R Us in the 70% and 60% off range was running very low, especially on items like action figurines, dolls, soft toys and Enchantimals.
