Cyber Monday has experienced mission creep in recent years and now seems to run roughly from Halloween until Christmas. Deals are constantly coming and going — so much so, it can be hard to keep track. We’ve sifted through all the noise to find the very best Cyber Monday toy deals for kids of all ages. We at Fatherly are proponents of thoughtfully made toys with few bells and whistles, the types of toys that make kids work their imaginations and engage in free, unstructured play. But this is the holidays, when bigger is better, so we’ve mixed it up a bit: Here are the best Cyber Monday deals on the best toys, along with the best deals on the most popular toys.
