Best toy deals and best LEGO deals 2016: hottest Cyber Monday toy deals to keep an eye out for

You should keep your eyes peeled for discounts on these toys, as they are going to be in high demand this Christmas

With Tesco and Argos both vying for top slot in the toy sales department, other retailers including Amazon, Smyths and Toys R Us also have their eyes on this most lucrative time of year. 

The run into Yule accounts for about 80% of toy sales and, as parents have likely been using this naughty/nice list as leverage for some time, there is one category that enters the shopping baskets/online checkouts of almost everyone in the nation.

Best toy deal Quick Links

We’ve seen some very decent toy offerings already this year with Argos popping up with a well received 3-for-2 campaign and now we’re already seeing the plaything category as the catalyst for breaking cover ahead of Black Friday.

The big man himself has never had it so good, his pint-sized assistants already out there bagging some decent bargains. Whilst plenty of those big present playthings will remain closer to RRP, the vast majority of toys represent a huge battleground in the race for sale and, as such, are ripe for the deal hunter.

Smyths have moved early with 50% off some toys and a tenner off some Lego sets, as well as deals with money off vouchers for the more you spend.

Here are some top toys to keep an eye on this Cyber Monday.

The top toys to look out for this Christmas - we're expecting these to be BIG! 

Feber Dareway

Not trying to be the next uber-cool form of futuristic transport, the Dareway is simple high scoring 12-volt toy for kids. Sky high ratings from reviewers and a whopping price drop – nice!

Price: £137.54 | Buy Feber Dareway

VTech My First Steps

Anyone with a toddler about to embark on making progress from crawl to walk will find that this toy is an absolute cracker. Lights and sounds a plenty to drive the parents of the recipient small person around the bend there are aplenty. Just make sure you buy those copper tops for this so it keeps on, and on, and on.

Price: £19.99 | Buy VTech My First Steps

Lego Marvel Iron Skull Sub

This 335 piece build is a steal with four mini figures, Scuba Iron Man, Scuba Captain America, Iron Skull and a Hydra diver. Loaded up with stud shooters, this underwater craft is a decent build and ideal for bathtub based scene recreation.

Price: £14.99 | Buy Lego Marvel Iron Skull Sub

Bladebuilder Jedi Master

Create over a hundred combinations with this lead piece from the Bladebuilders series. Lights, sounds, light daggers, expansion hilt, two elbow connectors, dual connector, and cross connector. Fix this up with others in the series and create contraptions not seen anywhere in the galaxy thus far.

Price: £24.99 | Buy Bladebuilder Jedi Master

Carrera Go! Rally Set

You may well see slots as a tad retro with all the A.I. powered goodness there is to be had. For a smidge under thirty quid though it’s a splendid way to satisfy that nostalgic itch for you and your intended gifting target.

Argos, not to be outdone by claims from others of “HALF PRICE” are here with  60% reduction offers. Action on these should be taken quick though – and of course there’s Fast Track on a load of their stuff if you just want to get it home and wrapped.

Price: £29.99 | Buy Carrera Go! Rally Set

Zoomer Chimp

Never really worth its RRP all the way up at £120, but at this price makes a very decent big pressie. A demonic looking animal in off mode but, when brought to life, runs over 100 tricks and boasts a general performance that’s grin-inducing enough. An absolute banker to drive pets a little wild.

Price: £94.99 | Buy Zoomer Chimp

Deathtrooper Blaster

An exclusive item to Argos, this isn’t the colour the Deathtrooper blasters will be in Rogue One, nor will theirs fire glowstrike NERF darts – making this one twice as good. Sounds and flashing lights included.

Price: £23.49 | Buy Deathtrooper Blaster

Thunderbird 2 and Thunderbird 4

A supersize TB2 complete with TB4! What is this toy sale madness? Buy these in anticipation of someone now or in the near future becoming a fan as this has loads of play value, with sounds inside, folding wings and mini figures. These Thunderbirds will certainly GO!

Price: £11.99 | Buy Thunderbird 2 and Thunderbird 4

Millennium Falcon RC Quad

The most recognizable and highly regarding spacecraft ever is on offer in drone form complete with same shape crafted remote control unit. Remember kids, parents deserve presents too. 

Tesco has a decent 3-for-2 on toys in place right now (cheapest free) and is keeping undercover about further action on toys prices. It’s a decent place for packing together a few big pressies though.

Price: £59.99 | Buy Millennium Falcon RC Quad

Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage

The size of a small room, this is one for junior petrol-heads and will keep them fast and furious for some time. There are parking spots for 36 cars and play space for plenty more. Five vehicles plus a helicopter inside. 

Price: £79.99 | Buy Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage

Lego Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster  

A really decent one to build this one with 1,135 pieces. Plenty of build to fill an inclement boxing day then. Loads of detail to it too, with a working coaster, wheel-turn-able ferris and four Friends characters to play with.

Price: £71.24 | Buy Lego Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster

FurReal Torch My Blazin Dragon

A flame-coloured mist breathing dragon of your very own for a touch under seventy quid, who would’ve thought it? A must-have for the younger GoT fan. Its breath actually “cooks” the marshmallow treat, turning it a different colour. Another 50 plus sound and motion combinations inside.

Price: £67.99 | Buy FurReal Torch My Blazin Dragon

 ANKI Overdrive

This A.I. powered car racing set has ten bits of track, a couple of cars all you need is a smart device for the oh-so-intuitive-game and you’re away. Think Mario Kart in real life and you’re part way. This is about as low as the starter pack has ever been, you’ll struggle for this price even on eBay.

Price: £134.99 | Buy ANKI Overdrive

Teksta Toucan

Another toy we we weren’t overly enamored with at nearly sixty quid but sub £30 we’ll have a bit of that. Stands as a room guard, tells a few bad jokes, makes inappropriate noises, flaps, ruffles and moves its facial features. Who’s a clever boy then?

Price: £29.95 | Buy Teksta Toucan
