The Black Friday Hit List (for Thoughtful Parents Who Want More)



Are you ready to shop until you drop? Just kidding. I don't believe we should respond to Black Friday this way. 


Ninety percent of the items in this list contain products that Toys As Tools testers has personally tested and approved.  For the sake of brevity, this will just be a list. The toys were submitted for consideration. Payment for inclusion is impossible. 


Note: Re: Amazon and Marbles: Putting items into your cart after going through my link means that you are supporting Toys As Tools just by purchasing something as you would normally do but a little percentage will go to TAT so thanks in advance! As you will see, a lot of the deals will be on the home sites of the products. Go ahead shop around! May you get the very best deal this holiday season.

I just became an affiliate and I couldn't be more thrilled. This is a list of great items here but it also contains tips on how to win at specialty store shopping.  It's possible. Just give me a chance.
