While there isn't an official press release just yet, Amazon does have a handy landing page where you can sort their picks by age, price, category, and more. Amazon and Walmart's lists have a few items in common, which means they'll be all the more popular this Christmas.
If Amazon does unveil a press release with new details, we will be sure to let you know. In the meantime, we are on the hunt for toy lists from other top retailers. It may be September, but it's never too early to make your holiday shopping list!
Prices will get even hotter as the holiday season progresses. If you have your eye on something now, remember to use a price-checking tool like Camelcamelcamel to make sure you're getting a good deal.
The list includes collectibles, interactive toys, fan favorites, and more. In addition, Walmart's layaway program is officially open.
Walmart's holiday toy list is created with the help of hundreds of kids. They narrowed the list down to the top 25 toys. If you're stuck on what to get a toy lover this year, whether they are 18 months or 12 years old, Walmart's list is full of great ideas.
These toys will undoubtedly be popular, which means they may have great Black Friday prices -- and may be very hard to get. This is where a layaway program can come in handy. You won't be getting the best price, but with a layaway you are guaranteed to get your hands on these trendy items.
Another interesting tidbit from Walmart's press release: this year Walmart will have the latest Hatchimals. It looks like they're called Hatchimals Surprise, and that we should have more details in early October. Are you prepared for that craze to come back?!
Our latest addition comes from Target. Their list includes more than 25 of the season's hottest items, including 11 Target-exclusive toys. Hatchimals Surprise got another mention -- it will be available October 6th, and Target will have an exclusive egg. Another mysterious top toy is the L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise, priced at $70 and available October 1st.
Our favorite day falls on November 24th this year. The deals will begin sooner, however. We expect to see early-access Black Friday sales around the 20th, with the majority of retailers flipping the switch by Thanksgiving Day (November 23rd).
Believe it or not, we are already starting to prep for Black Friday 2017 here at BFAds HQ! We have a ton of fun in store for you all this year. We're busy preparing to hire our holiday elves, brainstorming buying guides, and flexing our typing fingers to process those early ad leaks.
