Black Friday 2014 is almost in the books, and we took a trip to our local Toys R Us to see what toys are the biggest sellers. If you want to know what other people are buying for the little ones an actual toy-store check is the only way to do it. So in no particular order here are the hot selling “empty shelf” toys as of Black Friday 2014.
Nerf N-Strike Centurion
The Nerf N-Strike toy guns allow your kids to release some energy as they run around shooting (completely safe) Nerf ammo. There are a number of different guns in the N-Strike product line, but we found that the Nerf Centurion model was completely sold out. If you can’t get your hands on this cool-looking toys you can try any other of the N-Strike models.
LEGO Fusion Resort Designer
The LEGO Fusion series allows kids to combine real LEGO brick building with their smartphone or tablet. With the LEGO Fusion Resort Designer the child can actually build a summer dream resort. There are a couple of other sets in the Fusion series, but this set seemed very popular.
LEGO Star Wars Vulture Droid
With the upcoming Star Wars VII movie the Star Wars LEGO sets are building in popularity again. This is a very cool Vulture Droid construction set. Your child will have fun both constructing it and creating their own action. Like the other toys on this list, its shelf was bare in the brick-and-mortar store.
LEGO Galaxy Squad
The LEGO Galaxy Squad series of construction sets are really popular right now. Galaxy Squad is a spaced themed series of LEGO construction sets. The theme features a group of humans and their robotic sidekicks defending planets from an impending invasion by seemingly malignant alien “bugs”, resembling anthropomorphic insects. There are many sets to choose from.
LEGO Heartlake Shop
The last LEGO item on this list is from the highly popular Friends series. This set, the Heartlake Shopping Mall, has so many parts and pieces that the girl on your list will have a great time with her pretend time.
Kre-O Construction Sets
Kre-O is a line of construction toys (similar to LEGO) that were first released in 2011. The sets feature highly articulated humanoid figures called Kreons. There are a number of sets to choose from, so take your pick.
Shopkins is a line of store-themed toy sets with characters that allow girls to collect, share, and trade. Kids love to collect things, and Shopkins provide the perfect way to build a collection and get more play value with accessories. There are many sets available, so search the websites to find one (or more) appropriate for your child.
The Zoomer Dino is a fun remote control toy, but it’s more that just that. This robotic dinosaur actually balances while freely roaming around your home. You can get some reactions from him by pulling his tail, chasing him, and even trying to teach him to dance.
Disney Junior Play & Read Gift Sets
The Disney Junior Read & Play Gift Sets have fun interactive books that make reading time a hoot. The story topics encourage learning, and of course they have adorable Disney Junior character illustrations. There are a number of sets to choose from.
