Hallmark has you covered. Is there a new baby in the family? They have that covered as well! In fact, Hallmark has a holiday ornament or decoration for just about every occasion you could imagine!

Sears Files For Bankruptcy

Sears Files For Bankruptcy

Sears has filed for bankruptcy.

As we reported last week and as expected, early Monday Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and Kmart, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Once the largest retailer in the nation, Sears had a whopping $134 million debt due today. They could not convince debt collectors to agree to a plan to hold off on bankruptcy after recent attempts to raise money and cover that debt failed. CEO and largest shareholder Eddie Lampert will step down immediately.

Aptly described by The New York Times as the retailer who "pioneered the strategy of selling everything to everyone," Sears was last profitable in year 2010.

The predecessor to our current toy books and Black Friday ad scans, the Sears Wishbook at one time took center stage for children creating holiday toy wishlists all over the country. Along with the Wishbook, the Sears' Craftsman line has for years been a household name with handymen and do-it-yourselfers alike. Sears sold its signature Craftsman tool brand in early 2017 to Stanley Black & Decker for roughly $900 million, according to USA Today, in order to raise cash to prevent today's ultimate downfall.

Having once employed 302,000, there are only 68,000 people working for Sears and Kmart currently, who will now be looking for work come this usually busy holiday season. Sears will close 142 Sears and Kmart stores by year's end with liquidation sales beginning soon.

Continue to check back with BFAds for updates on the timing of those Sears and Kmart store closings and what that will mean for holiday shoppers during the upcoming Black Friday shopping season.

This year's Lego Holiday Book features over 20 new sets and offers something for everyone.

While the Lego 2017 Holiday Book was bigger at 65 pages and offered more new sets, the 2018 version still looks very similar and offers many of the same sets.

This is an intricate set for ages 16+ featuring turrets, chambers, classrooms, creatures, and even a moving staircase. We're sure this Harry Potter gift will sell out fast!

Also, are you wondering what to do with all those mini-figures included with your larger sets this year? Beginning October 15th through October 31st, Lego is offering a FREE Exclusive Mini-Figure Collector Frame with all purchases over $75!

JCPenney Top 20 Toys Holiday 2018 Released!

JCPenney Top 20 Toys 2018

We just posted the 1-page JCPenney Top 20 Toys Holiday 2018 ad scan!

In early September, the company announced they would be unveiling its Top 20 Toys list as a way of celebrating the successful 1-year anniversary of opening toy shops inside each JCPenney store.

On their list are the tried-and-true favorites like a Mega Nerf Gun, a Little Tikes Basketball Hoop, and a Hatchimal Surprise.

They also mention the L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise, which BFAds calls out on our own 2018 Hottest Holiday Toys list, and the Baby Alive Potty Dance Baby and the Monopoly Board Game - Cheaters Edition, which we noted were unique additions to Kmart's Fab 15 Toys list this year as well.

One toy to mention that seems new throughout toy lists so far this year is the Cutetitos, which are mystery plush toys stuffed inside a burrito stuffed inside mystery packaging. There are 12 possible collectible styles, including puppitos, catitos, slothitos, pigitos, bunnitos, bearitos, and monkitos. They come with a collector card that lists your surprise's "Hot Spot" you discover on opening - a mild, medium, hot, or super spicy trait, as well as birthday, species, name, and favorite quotito. How's THAT for unique?

Along with their top toys in each store this holiday season, JCPenney will be offering scheduled events alongside the toy shops for kids with interactive creative Kids Zone Workshops, where parents receive a special 10% OFF coupon for use in-store that same day which can also be stacked on top of their sale prices.

We will be watching for JCPenney's Top 20 Toys list to become an annual release - hopefully for years to come!

Kmart 2018 Fab 15 Holiday Toy List Released!

Kmart 2018 Fab 15 Holiday Toy List Released!

We just posted the 2-page Kmart Fab 15 Holiday Toy List ad scan!

Kmart has released their annual take on the hottest holiday toys for the 2018 season with their Fab 15 Toys list!

It's been about a month since Walmart, Amazon, and Target released their holiday toy scorecards for this year, and Kmart has a few duplicates to those on their list as well. One is the classic Barbie Dreamhouse, which is on almost every toy list again this year. Another is the L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise, which they have listed as "coming soon" and which BFAds also predicted will be one of 2018's Hottest Holiday Toys.

We found it interesting that Kmart is calling out some unique options this year compared to the other stores. Be sure to check out their entire list, but here are a few we thought were worth a mention if you're in the market for a toy that other shops might not be highlighting in 2018.

Hot Holiday Toys:

Also, don't forget to sign up for Kmart's Shop Your Way program. It's free to join, and you can score store coupons and earn cashback points to use on future purchases.

As the situation remains precarious regarding a potential Sears bankruptcy filing in the coming days, we're still unsure as to how this will affect Kmart stores during the crucial upcoming holiday shopping season. If there's something tops on your list at Kmart you can't live without this year, now might be the time to grab it while you can.

We are hoping to see a few more toy lists before the flood of holiday catalogs and ad scans begin, so check back with us often for more toy and gift suggestions for Black Friday 2018!
