Today is Day 3 of the Chapters Indigo "5 Days of Toy Deals" and so far everyday has brought us some pretty great discounts. Day 1 was 20% off Playmobil, Day 2 was 20% off Thomas & Friends and Melissa & Doug toys. Now Day 3 is 20% off all winter play items such as toboggans, sleds, scoots and such. These make fabulous Christmas gifts, or you can start using them as soon as you receive them since there is already snow on the ground. Plus if you spend $25 or more you will get totally free shipping.
This discount is only valid today of course, so if you see anything you like then it is best to snag it now while you can get a reduced price. I actually found that the "Winter Toys" on Chapters.Indigo.ca include much more than just sleds. There are also other items like the traditional rod hockey games, snow tree kits and much more. There are a lot of fun items.
Some cities around me have banned sledding or tobogganing, but some of my fondest memories as a kid are when we were sliding down a slippery hill at neck-breaking speeds. Right now my toddler just enjoys being pulled along in a sled, so nothing too extreme yet. There are lots of cute and comfortable looking sleds available at a discounted price today, and I am honestly having a hard time just choosing one. The Traditional 1 Hoop Sleigh looks perfect for my toddler. It was regularly $89.95 but with this discount I will pay only $71.96. Not bad, eh? This particular sled is lined to be a little more comfortable and warm. The liner is removable for washing purposes too. If you don't want the liner or if you want to spend a few less dollars, then check out the Alpine Slasher Sleigh which was $59.95. With today's discount you will pay just $47.96.
There are other winter toys discounted as well, so if you have a sled already don't fret. I really like the sounds of this Indigo Exclusive Sno-Tree Glow Star Kit. You can build a tree out of snow and then decorate it with this set - it sounds like a lot of fun. This set was $24.95 but with the 20% discount you can pay just $19.96 which doesn't quite qualify for free shipping but there are lots of other cool items you can grab to get you up to a $25 total. How about these Sno Markers for example? They were $7.95, but once the 20% off is applied you will pay just $6.36 which gets you to your free shipping minimum. These markers are a lot of fun.
If you spend $25 or more at Chapters.Indigo.ca you will get free shipping too, which is always a sweetener to any deal.However, this only applies to some items. A couple of the larger sleds have their own shipping fees which you can take a look at as you are checking out. When I tested it on the Alpine sled above, it was only $6.88 shipping to ON, which isn't too bad anyway!
Moosers, do you take your kids sledding?
