Oh, and thanks to YakPurge for the heads up!
If you have a Marshalls or TJ Maxx store in your area, it may be worth your time to swing by and see if you can score any toys marked down. Many stores that have leftover 2013 stock are really slashing prices to make room for their 2014 toy sections. As always, your mileage and success may vary.
