  • Coupon Code: KNEXMOOSE
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

I have looked at this set probably a hundred times and wanted to get it for my kids. I love that it is a roller coaster, which my kids would love. They also love building sets and it just gives them something different to do from LEGO. With 624 pieces, this set builds up to 2.5 feet tall. I did notice that it says age 9+, and I think it is because of the delicate nature of the set.

It also includes a hanging roller coaster with little people in it, and has an inverted blaster motor to run your coaster. What’s even better is that you can download instructions online to build a second type of coaster if you get bored of the first.

Just to show you this is a very hot deal, I did some comparing around at other sites. Sears sells this set for full price at $69.99. Even stores in the States sell it for about $50 to $60. Amazon has a similar set, which it is selling for $47.41 and the actual set, which it sells for $58.53. As you can, My Outlet Store far beats these prices.

Shipping is $4.95, and your extra 10% off covers that. Or, you can buy a few sets or something else and get your cart up to $75 and get free shipping.

My Outlet Store sells items for your home, plus fashion on top of the items for kids. I also see lots of KitchenAid items there. Hmmm… I wonder if we can get another exclusive to get those discounted even more? Bargainmoosers, what do you think, would you like to see deeper discounts on other items at My Outlet Store?

Amazon Canada: Playmobil Cargo & Passenger Aircraft Was $120 | Now $74 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 11, 2015 at 9:28 AM

Amazon Canada: Playmobil Cargo & Passenger Aircraft Was $120 | Now $74 & Free Shipping

Playmobil is my life. Well, it seems that way with this house pretty much full of it. This Playmobil cargo and passenger aircraft was actually one of the first things we ever bought from Playmobil. Well, ours is a little bit different, but that was about eight years ago. And eight years later, my kids still play with it and it is still in the same condition as the day we got it. Playmobil doesn’t often go on sale and when it does it is a maximum of 20% off. With this deal, you are getting 40% off. While this set is more than likely going to be discontinued, will your kid really care? Your wallet won’t. Regularly $119.99, it is on sale at Amazon for $73.95.

I don’t know a kid who doesn’t like airplanes. What’s cool about Playmobil’s airplanes is that they are quite large, so they are definitely a major player in the kid’s toys. This one comes with cargo that can be loaded and unloaded, plus a few passengers with luggage. It also has an air traffic control tower with equipment and accessories. We had to buy ours separate, so that’s a nice little bonus. I also like the little traffic controller with his signs.

You don’t have to take my word for it that kids and parents love this set. The reviews on Amazon give it a total of 4.8 stars out of five, with five 5-star reviews and one 4-star review.

Of course, I shopped around for price comparisons and found every other store had it on for full price, like the Playmobil store, Chapters Indigo (out of stock) and Toys R Us. The reviews on those sites are great too.

If you are looking for a birthday present, end of school year gift or want to save this for Christmas, either way, this is a really great deal. Shipping is going to be free as this item is over $25.

My Outlet Store: Hauck Go Kart Was $200 | Now $99 & Free Shipping With Exclusive Promo code

My Outlet Store: Hauck Go Kart Was $200 | Now $99 & Free Shipping With Exclusive Promo code

Since our deal the other day on the Melissa & Doug kitchen went so well, we decided to ask My Outlet Store for another exclusive, to make one of their hot deals even hotter. Right now they have the Hauck Hurricane go kart in a batman theme on sale for $119, from $199.99. They’ve also got the Hauck Thunder go kart on sale, from $249.99, down to $149. Both go carts will get $20 off with our exclusive coupon code. This means the Batman cart will only be $99, which is more than $100 off and the black go kart will come down to $129, also $100 off.

  • Coupon Code: KARTMOOSE
  • Discount: $20 off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Whenever a kid rides up to the park on one of these, my kids seem to turn green with jealousy. They’ve got a garage full of wheeled-toys, but they are in love with the idea of a go kart. At this price, how can I deny them? Paying less than $100 for an outdoor toy that will undoubtedly keep them out of my hair is priceless.

These go karts will suit kids of all ages, with a weight limit of 110 lbs and an adjustable seat. The Batman style would suit any superhero fan, especially the younger ones. The plain black looks more the style of older boys. It even has a roll cage!

I price compared around and found the Batman kart for:

I found the thunder go kart for:

The only other option I saw was a similar style of go kart, called Lightning at Toys R Us, where it sells for $149.99. But, as you can see from that link, these karts don’t normally sell for under $200 and go up to as much as $500!

The reviews I found were also very encouraging, like this one from Sears:

Bought this for my sons 6th birthday. He loved it! I really like the fact that he is getting exercise while having fun. All the neighbourhood kids wait in line to take a turn. Highly recommend it!

While there is usually a $4.95 flat rate of shipping on items from My Outlet Store, these karts came up with free shipping, which is a sweet little bonus!

Don’t wait to buy these, they will probably sell out quickly.

Hot! Melissa & Doug Cook’s Corner Wood Kitchen Was $130 | Now $55 With Exclusive Coupon Code @ My Outlet Store Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 8, 2015 at 11:32 AM

Hot! Melissa & Doug Cook’s Corner Wood Kitchen Was $130 | Now $55 With Exclusive Coupon Code @ My Outlet Store Canada (EXPIRED)

Just arrived @ My Outlet Store Canada, they have a great deal on the Melissa & Doug Cook’s Corner Wood Kitchen. This durable play kitchen was originally $129.99 but is on sale for $69. With the coupon code you get this kitchen now for only $55.20!

Use the exclusive coupon code BargainMooseExclusive to receive an 20% off this kitchen and any Melissa & Doug toys @ My Outlet Store! This item is super hot, and there is a very limited number available. Grab yours quick before they are gone!

If you have a little kid in the house, then a play kitchen is almost an essential toy. The play kitchens at my daughter’s preschool are always a high use item for both boys and girls. If you were looking for a bigger gift for your favourite child, this kitchen would be a good bet. Melissa & Doug toys are generally durable toys that hold up to playtime well from my own experience.

This play kitchen from Melissa & Doug is made of pressed wood and comes in bright cheery colours. The knobs on the oven click, the timer works and it has both a built in oven and refrigerator. There are extra details included into the design such as a cutting board, a play sink and three pretend burners. The best thing about this little kitchen is it is compact in size. Play kitchens can take up a lot of space when you factor in the space around them for playtime. We have a modest size play kitchen for my daughter, but I wish I had purchased a more compact design as it often takes over our living room. This kitchen does not come with play food, but from my experience play food sets are not expensive. A small set of play food generally works, as most toys becomes play food at some point.

Price Comparison

I did a little price comparison around the web, and here is what I found if you were to pick up this kitchen elsewhere.

The price at My Outlet Store Canada is your best bet.

Reviews

I am surprised more people are not talking about this sweet play kitchen. The only place I have found reviews is on Amazon.ca. Buyers are praising the compact design and multiple people mention that this kitchen is incredibly sturdy in the Q&A section. Reviewers did mention it takes a little time to put together, so you may want to set aside time for assembly after it arrives.

Shipping

Shipping from My Outlet Store is a cool $4.95 right now. A play kitchen usually will fall into the bulky item category, which means companies will normally upcharge you on shipping. $4.95 will not break the bank for this larger item.

This coupon code also works on for the Melissa & Doug Wooden Project Workbench. This cute toy was $99, is on sale for $49, but is now only $39.20! Your house will be humming with playtime soon! If you have been looking for some fun playtime, now is your chance. These will not last long at all!

Toys R Us: Vtech 3-in-1 Race & Learn Was $35 | Now $26 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 6, 2015 at 6:48 PM

Toys R Us: Vtech 3 in 1 Race & Learn Was $35 | Now $26 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Toys R Us had discounted the Vtech – 3-in-1 Race & Learn (English) toy from $34.99 down to $25.87 with free shipping.

This is an educational driving toy for little kids. The racing toy is a ‘three in one’ model where your kids can choose to drive a car, a jet, or a motorcycle. There are nine courses to enjoy. Through play, the Vtech Race & Learn toy teaches letters, spelling, numbers, shapes, and more. There is a gear shifter that plays real racing sounds and the controller vibrates to enhance your child’s play and simulated driving experience. Overall, this is one cool little toy for just over $25. One parent said:

I bought it for my 1 1/2 year old for Christmas he really loves it. It has a regular driving setting and he loves to just drive and turn it on and off. It’s cool that it turns into a motorcycle or airplane but his favorite is the car. Any little kid that loves driving their parents cars or playing on racing arcade games will love this. There’s also two learning setting that I’m sure he’ll use when he’s older.

Most all the reviews are pretty positive. The toy is designed for children ages two to six but it all depends upon your child’s development.

A quick price comparison revealed the following prices at other stores:

  • $34.98 @ Walmart Canada (French)
  • $34.95 @ Mastermind Toys Canada
  • $34.99 @ The Source Canada

Amazon Canada is the only place with the same price as Toys R Us. However, they only have two left in stock and they do not have the option for in store pickup. Thus, I thought the Toys R Us deal was worth mention. You can get the toy shipped to your home for free. However, if you want your new educational toy sooner, Toys R Us has the option of picking up in store with same day service.

I know many kids that would love this cool driving simulator. My favourite would be the jet setting as I often considered becoming a pilot when I was younger. Of course, I have now driven both a motorcycle and a car now. That jet is still on my checklist!

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

Posted by on April 6, 2015 at 2:34 PM

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

Purchase $25 or more worth of Sunny Patch merchandise at Chapters Indigo Canada to receive a free Sunny Patch umbrella valued at $9.95.

Your order will also qualify for free shipping as the minimum required, $25, is also the minimum for free shipping.

Melissa & Doug make Sunny Patch toys. They are the cutest animal and flower themed toys that are perfect for your child’s backyard or front yard play. Let your child help you ‘mow the lawn’ with this Tootle Turtle Mower for $39.95. Receive a free umbrella with your purchase.

If course, the best deal is going to be when you just reach $25, so the $10 umbrella is worth a higher percentage of your order. This Happy Giddy Bowling Set is just perfect for that! The set includes six bowling pins and a bowling ball for little hands. I rather like the bowling pins in this set – they look like cute little aliens. The set costs $26.95 so the umbrella is free when you purchase just this set.

To receive your free umbrella, choose from one of the following designs and add it to your cart. There are two designs to choose from:

I think the Happy Giddy umbrella is the cutest thing ever. I also really like green. Add one of these umbrellas to your cart with a valid order to receive the umbrella free. Your cart should look something like this:

Chapters Canada: Free Sunny Patch Umbrella with $25 Purchase ($10 Value)

There are plenty other cute toys to purchase. I just chose toys that were already above the $25 minimum, but you can combine toys to reach that minimum. Add the Sunny Patch Firefly Pail (Indigo Exclusive) to your cart for just $11.95. Then, choose from a myriad of other toys like this Froggy Kickball for $13.95. Together, these two toys come to $25.90. That is enough for your free umbrella. The froggy kickball looks really cool and would certainly be fun to play with. However, it might be a bit hard to see in green grass! Then you can have a game of ‘find the kickball’.

I think this is a great deal because the minimum is only $25 for a $10 freebie. That is good value for your money overall.

Walmart Canada: MobiGo Cartridges Were $24 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 2:55 PM

Walmart Canada: MobiGo Cartridges Were $24 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

From what we hear, today is the last day of free shipping with no minimum at Walmart Canada. I was checking out the toy section because toys are the only thing I have bought at Walmart Canada in 10 years. I ran across a selection of Vtech MobiGo software for MobiGo and MobiGo 2 systems. Originally these games were $23.74, but they are now on sale for $10 each.

The Mobigo Software: Thomas the Tank Engine- English Version is only $10 right now, which makes it a good deal and an excellent way to expand your child’s software collection. The software includes four learning games. In addition, there is a bonus activity once you complete, allows you to unlock new engines to play with in the four learning games. The game also has the voices of all your child’s favourite characters including Thomas, Sir Topham Hatt, and more.

The other three games priced at $10 are in French. You can pick up Cars 2 – MobiGo Touch Learning System, Mobigo 2 Software- Jake and the Neverland, and Mobigo Software:Disney Minnie Mouse all in the French versions. This is a great way to promote bilingual learning and help your child get a head start on their French. These are also fantastic if you live in some of the French speaker areas in Canada. I took two courses in university French last year. Unfortunately, I am losing it without practice. I think games like this are a great way to maintain a second language and help it further develop.

Now, if your budget can stretch a little farther, then there are many great Mobigo games on sale from $23.74 down to $15. Disney Tangled Mobigo Software starts the endearing princess, her frog, and the notorious Flynn Rider. The Disney Brave-Mobigo 2 Software- French Version is probably my top pick of the $15 games. I love this fierce little redhead girl.

In English, you can score Mobigo Software- Disney Sofia the First. Sofia the First is popular among young girls and I am sure young fans would love to play a game based on their favourite princess. The Mobigo Software- Bubble Guppies is also in available in English. I watched a bit of this show while waiting for my blood to be taken at a clinic. It was far more interesting than the baseball game on the ‘adult’ television.

These cartridges are all out of stock at the four closest Walmart’s to me. I highly recommend picking them up online. All cartridges are compatible with the MobiGo and the MobiGo 2.

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 1:38 PM

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Toys R Us Canada has discounted many building block sets up to 30%. I found this cool Mega Bloks – Call of Duty – Heavy Armor Outpost on sale from $64.99 down to $45.47. Using the coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY this set comes down to just $35.47. It also qualifies for free shipping on orders of $25 or more so this set will ship to your home for free.

I like deals where a combination of discounts and offers combined make for the best price possible. Here you have the original set on sale, plus free shipping as the set is over the minimum threshold. Add on the $10 off coupon code and the deal becomes really quite nice.

Toys R Us: Mega Bloks Call of Duty Heavy Armor Outpost Was $65 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

You can see how that turns out in my cart above. Overall, you save $29.52 on the toy and $8.41 on shipping.

I tried price comparing this set but nowhere in Canada is it still in stock. At Amazon Canada, marketplace sellers are asking $99+ for the set and Walmart Canada does not stock it. I turned to the USA to get some idea of this set’s value:

  • $64.99 CAN @ MegaBloks.com
  • $50.89 US @ Amazon.com
  • $59.97 US @ Walmart.com
  • $50.99 US @ Target.com

As you can see, Toys R Us Canada easily beats the prices coming out of the USA as well. This Call of Duty set features a main battle tank that is heavily armoured and comes with a heavy machine gun and main cannon on a rotating turret. The tracks on the battle tank really spin as well. There is also a buildable outpost with a camouflage canopy that can attach to your tank. The set comes with three pose-able figures with interchangeable accessories and weapons. Overall, this is a pretty awesome set and well worth the money. As one reviewer says:

The manufacturing quality is the best I’ve ever seen from a company outside of the Grand Master = LEGO. There is so much detail to the set that it’s more of a model than a toy, but don’t think that means it’s flimsy, it’s a rugged piece! I also am a big fan of the new, super-articulated figures. It can be a bit tedious to put the figures together sometimes, but you can really get some realistic poses out of them.

Many reviewers have said that this set is one of the best that Mega Bloks has ever made. They love the new figures, they love the amazing detail on the tank, and now you can love the price.

Amazon.ca: Crayola Paint & Marker Makers Were $27 | Now $14 Each (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 12:10 PM

Amazon.ca: Crayola Paint & Marker Makers Were $27 | Now $14 Each (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada has discounted the Crayola Paint Maker and the Crayola Marker Maker from $26.99 down to $13.97 each. While each item does not alone qualify for free shipping, you can easily get free shipping by adding both Crayola maker kits to your cart.

I price compared with other online Canadian retailers. Walmart Canada has the Crayola Paint Maker for $20 and Toys R Us Canada sells the same paint maker for $27.99. Sears also sells this set for $26.99. I also compared prices for the Crayola Marker Maker. Walmart Canada sells the kit for $20 and Toys R Us Canada sells the kit for $27.99. Walmart is the next best, but even then you are paying an additional $6 per kit compared to Amazon Canada.
Now I have established that these are, indeed, the best price around. When you pair them together – two kits for $27.94 – your order also qualifies for free shipping across Canada. Perfect!

The Crayola Paint Maker allows children to make their own washable paint. This is not just a kit with a few paint colours to choose. Rather, your child can create their own custom colours by mix and matching dyes into the paint base. There is a colour-mixing guide to help your child create just the colour they want. Then, shake up the paint pot (lid on!) to mix the colours. Presto! Fun, washable paint for your child to decorate with. One parent on Walmart said:

I bought this to entertain a seven year old and it sure did the trick. Was lots of fun and after we figured it all out we were able to experiment with colour and design. Good fun for an afternoon and easy to clean up. Refills are available and affordable.

The Crayola Marker Maker lets your kids create their own markers! The set includes three ink bottles, two marker boxes, two measuring tubes, tweezers, a mixing chart, 16 marker part sets (barrels, labels, cores, tips, caps, and plugs). Parent supervision is recommended for younger children. If your child wants more after making sixteen markers, you can buy a refill package for this set.

Both sets look like so much fun and are now far more affordable! Pick up both of these kits at Amazon Canada while the deal lasts.

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada’s toy section is ripe with deals. Pick up some Minnie Mouse themed playsets for up to 50% off their original price with free shipping.

The first toy set is super cute and quantities are already limited. Purchase Minnie’s Pet Bowtique Playset that was $19.97 and is now only $10. The set comes with Minnie, Pluto, and Figaro figures. Minnie and pets can play in the pet grooming partner complete with cash register table, food display shelf, a bathtub, and a groomer’s table.

Minnie needs a way to get around so pick up Minnie’s Limousine that was $19.97, and is now just $10. The pimped limousine has a pool in the back! The set comes with a Minnie figure, her limo, a suitcase, and what looks to be a towel.

While not quite 50% off, I do like Minnie Resort Paw Pack. This pack was $17.97 and is now $10. The pack comes with a Minnie beach figure, two water pets, and tons of beach accessories. One reviewer said:

My granddaughter loves Mini Mouse and she really loves the swim set and the bathing suits for Mini she plays with them at our house every time she comes.

Minnie’s Bike Ride was $29.94 but is now $15. The bike is designed so Fargo can sit in the back while Minnie sits on the front. The cat is included, as well as a helmet for Minnie. One reviewer said:

Christmas gift and my niece loved it! One of her favourite new toys.

All the playsets come with a Minnie doll, which some reviewers found the only downside of all the playsets. One reviewer suggested that the pets and accessories should come separately as her daughter already has four Minnie dolls! If your child wants another character to play with, the purchase the Tea party with Daisy Bowtique that was $24.97 and is now $15. Sure, you still get a Minnie doll, but the set also comes with Daisy.

Lastly, Minnie’s Fashion Ride comes with the cat, a motorcycle, and a change of clothing. There are 10 pieces in all to play with. This set was $24.97 and is now $15.

The best toys are those that work with other toys or toy sets. Since all of these Minnie themed toys are on sale, you can pick up a couple. I think the beach one and the grooming parlour would be my favourite ones, and then I would add on the Daisy set.

Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play-doh, My Little Pony, & More

Posted by on March 27, 2015 at 11:25 AM

Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play doh, My Little Pony, & More

There is a bunch of buy one get one free offers on at Toys R Us for this weekend. This is a great time to stock up on toys for your children – whether for birthdays, for good behaviour rewards, or for Christmas (I know… so far away).

Here are some of the items you can buy one of and get another free:

  • BOGO FREE on ALL $21.99 and Under Play-Doh
  • BOGO FREE on ALL $14.99 and up My Little Pony
  • BOGO FREE on ALL Littlest Pet Shop Dolls and Playsets

I started with Play-Doh, as it is a favourite childhood toy of mine. I just adore the Play-Doh Stamp and Roll Set Featuring Despicable Me Minions for $9.99. There is a unicycle roller with stamps built in and a Pogo stick with different stamps as well. It is one-eyed minion versus two-eyed minion for the win! I would pair this set with the Play-Doh Marvel Can-Heads Featuring Spider-Man and Green Goblin that is also $9.99. Together, one set becomes free.

Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play doh, My Little Pony, & More

You can see the discount in my cart above. Now, Toys R Us offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more so you will want to add more than $10 worth of stuff to your cart.

When I was a child, I owned one My Little Pony. I think my pony would be a classic now as My Little Pony has come back as a hit TV show and toy franchise among kids, teens, and adults. I was at a comic convention where I heard Q from Star Trek speak. Half the questions directed towards him were about the character he voices on My Little Pony! You could purchase the My Little Pony – Equestria Girls Collection – Twilight Sparkle Doll for $17.99 and get the My Little Pony – Equestria Girls Collection – Rarity Doll for free. If you split the cost between the dolls, which means each doll will only cost $8.99.

Lastly, all Littlest Pet Shop Dolls and Playsets qualify for the buy one get one free offer. I picked out the Littlest Pet Shop – Backstage Beauties Pet Pair for $14.99 to pair up with the Littlest Pet Shop – On With the Show Pet Pair, which is also only $14.99. Your second one becomes free in your cart.

You can add multiples of these deals as well. I tried out four Littlest Pet Shop items and two became free. You can do this with the My Little Pony and Play-Doh deals as well.

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:45 PM

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

I am a bit obsessed with Monster High dolls – I will admit it. I constantly monitor their sales on Walmart! This Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack – Shivering Sad, Eek Excited, Hauntingly Happy is on sale from $34.97 down to just $17 with free shipping.

Okay, this pack is the ultimate cool Monster High pack for real fans of monsters. The doll comes with three different faceplates plus her usual face. The faceplates fit over her face to give her different – really awesome – designs and expressions. Press down on her brain, and her eyes change as well. I really like the evil looking eyes. Her body comes with two different torsos. One is the ‘normal’ monster high torso and the other is the one where you can stick in different monster organs and then snap the plastic cover shut.

She also comes with a bunch of accessories including two different outfits and different hairpieces. Her journal has blank pages so you can make your own monster story. Overall, she is one cool doll! You can even mix and match her pieces with other Inner Monster dolls. I have one from the Inner Monster collection – and I just love her face plate and wings. It would be fun to interchange doll parts, clothing, hair, and more.

I tried price comparing this set, but it is sold out everywhere else. I did find it from a secondary seller on Amazon for $99.95 plus shipping (ouch). A regular Inner Monster doll pack retails for $29.99 on Sears Canada (not the deluxe), and the best deals on eBay.ca start at $34 for the pack plus shipping.

I found some reviews online. Reviewers tended to be very impressed with the deluxe pack. The many accessories for the doll was their favourite part. Some reviewers said that this doll is best for those who are not planning to collect all the dolls. The Inner Monster deluxe pack becomes three dolls in one with the many different accessories you can use to customize her. Overall, the doll plus accessories is a great buy for only $17.

If you are in the market for other Monster High dolls, check out the MONSTER HIGH – GHOUL SPIRIT DOLL for only $14.97. Frankie and Spectra are still available. Monster High Creepateria Cleo de Nile Doll is also on sale for $14.97.

Walmart Canada: Interactive Mike the Knight Figure Was $25 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 1:28 PM

Walmart Canada: Interactive Mike the Knight Figure Was $25 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

This Interactive Mike the Knight Figure is on sale from $24.97 down to $10, at Walmart Canada. All orders from Walmart Canada receive free shipping.

Price comparing this toy was nearly impossible. Toys R Us, Amazon Canada, and Sears Canada do not carry the toy. I did find the toy in the USA at Amazon.com. There it had an original retail price of $20 and was on sale for $12.25 US = $15.35 CA. While this is hardly a fair comparison (shipping and duty would come into play), it does give you some context.

Mike the Knight is pretty popular among young kids (about two to five years old) right now. This Mike the Knight Figure talks to your child so they can hear popular sounds and phrases from the show. This little knight in training is sure to please your young one while they play. As one reviewer said:

I bought it for my son birthday ( 3years) who loves mike the knight the toy has many sounds , of the tv show, he takes him everywhere great toy

This toy is versatile. Not only does it speak, but Mike the Knight has articulated shoulder joints and can pivot at the waist. The toy includes a sword and shield for pretend play. Activate Mike by pressing the shield button on his chest. Hoe comes with over 20 sounds and phrases. Some of them your child will know from the show, like “It’s time to be a knight and do it right!” Other phrases encourage your child, like “You would make a great knight!”

This toy is for ages two and up but age often depends on development stage so you are always the best judge as to whether your child is ready for this sort of toy.

I think this is a great toy for a great price! It satisfies tactile and auditory play while still being great for playing out stories with the sword and shield. While this is not the most articulated toy, it has enough movement to satisfy young customers.

  • Coupon Code: GoldieBlox5
  • Discount: Parade Float for $5 with Spinning Machine purchase
  • Expiry: Unknown

It is a bit hard to price compare a deal like this. Essentially, you need to look at the total price for both sets and see whose is cheaper. Here is a price compilation from two other websites that carry this title.

$57.90 @ Chapters Indigo

  • GoldieBlox and the Parade Float – $22.95
  • GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine – $34.95

$45.06 @ Amazon Canada

  • GoldieBlox and the Parade Float – $14.99
  • GoldieBlox and the Spinning Machine – $30.07

Given both of these price comparisons, I figured Toys R Us’s deal was worth blogging as it is the cheapest and includes free shipping as well.

Honestly, I had no clue what these were when I first saw this deal. I had to read a bit to find out that GoldieBlox is a series of interactive books and construction toys designed to fuel girls’ interest in engineering. I remember reading something about how innovative these toys were as most toys like this are marketed towards boys. As your child reads along in the book, she gets to build what Goldie builds. Your child will encounter problems along side Goldie. They will solve these problems together by building simple machines. I rate this about a 5/5 for awesome toys geared towards girls.

This toy is designed for younger girls. Several parents have found it perfect for a four-year old:

My four year old loves stories and lego/blocks. Having a fun story to follow and build with has been perfect for her. The more she does it, the easier it becomes for her to follow the pictures and do it herself. She likes that at the end of the story there is more “machines” to build.

You can read other reviews from parents. There are some complains about kids getting bored… but that seems to be with older children. Also, not all kids will like all toys. Some parents do not think the set holds together well enough, but it is designed to be taken apart and used to build machines. From my understanding, the sets can be used together as well.

Walmart Canada: Clearance On Building Block Toys

Walmart Canada: Clearance On Building Block Toys

Walmart Canada has restocked their clearance section with fierce deals on building block brands like LEGO, Duplo, and Mega Bloks. Receive free shipping on all orders.

First, my favourite set of the sale has to be LEGO Lord of the Rings and Hobbit – The Wizard Battle on sale from $15.96 down to $10. Wage war between Gandalf the Grey and Saruman the White. Turn the tables on Saruman so that Gandalf wins this time. Weapons, two figures, and the throne room will keep you busy.

While not quite for building, this LEGO Legends of Chima Laval Minifigure Clock is a fantastic deal. Originally $24.94, the clock is on sale for $15. If your child is a big fan of LEGO, give them a LEGO themed clock to teach them time.

For a sweet little set perfect to keep or to give, pick up this LEGO Duplo Creative Play – All-in-One-Gift-Set (10570) that was $17.86 and is now $15. The same set is $19.99 at Toys R Us right now. This 30-piece set includes a cat and a dog.

There are several other Duplo sets on sale that you can mix and match with the Creative Play set above. Pick up the LEGO DUPLO Creative Play – Toddler Build and Boat Fun (10567), which was $19.86, for only $15 right now. In this set, your child can collect a red rabbit and a cute little brown bear.

This Mega Bloks – First Builders – Build N’ Learn Table (8233) is an absolute must buy. The set was $25 and is now $20. It includes 75 blocks and the table to play on as well. The original price on this set is quite misleading as Amazon Canada currently sells the set for $44.95. Even on sale at Toys R Us, the set is still $34.97. Add on the Mega Bloks First Builders – ABC Spell School Bus (81254) that was $15.93 and is now $10.

While I am not familiar with this brand, the Kre-O Cityville Marina Madness Set looks to be an excellent deal. Originally $29.94, the set is on sale for $20. Amazon Canada has the same set for $46.47 right now from a marketplace seller. I like the giant shark that comes with the set.

The LEGO suitcases look like a fun addition to your current sets. Pick up the LEGO Juniors – House Suitcase (10660) or the LEGO Juniors – Vehicle Suitcase (10659) during this clearance sale. Originally $29.96, the suitcases are each $20.

There are plenty more fun building sets for sale right now. Stick is very limited and selling out quickly.
