While Toys R Us Cyber Monday deals in the US may not be here until the end of the month, that doesn’t mean you can’t save on kids gifts right now. You know, the toys that are so cool you want to play with them yourself when the kids go off to bed? Yeah, there are deals on them at this very moment.
All of this is a lot easier thanks to the mega-savings that Toys R Us promises and always delivers on. This year, the US toy outlet is facing bankruptcy, and that means you may find even better Cyber Monday prices than you’d normally expect.
We’ve seen worthy discounts on Nerf blasters, Marvel action figures, kids tablets and even Power Wheel-style ride ons. And Toys R Us is always a good source of movie and video game deals, according to Cyber Mondays of years past. Oh, and have we mentioned LEGOs? Those are popular come the biggest shopping days of the year.
The best part about Cyber Monday 2017 is that the Toys R Us deals will be just as good online as in person in almost every case. You can shop the store without leaving the comfort of your couch. That makes sneaking away to buy toys in the middle of the night or super early in the morning a lot easier than before, making the surprise when your kids open their gifts that much easier to achieve. You gotta admit – those overjoyed faces make it all worth it.
So, what are the best Cyber Monday deals at Toys R Us? While we have time before we see big items like Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on sale, we’re already finding a lot of other early Cyber Monday deals you can consider putting away right now.

Toys R Us ads to leak ahead of time
There are no leaked ads detailing the Cyber Monday 2017 deals Toys R Us will have right now, but they should come in late November. Since Cyber Monday comes after Black Friday, Cyber Monday ads may not be officially released until after Black Friday.
One place to keep an eye on is the Toys R Us Cyber Monday page. You can bet that when deals do become available, they will be listed here.
The Toys R Us Black Friday Preview is out in the wild, so you can peruse it’s pages to get a sense of all the deals you can expect all the way through Cyber Monday 2017.
Once the Cyber Monday ads do arrive, however, they will offer all the information you need to figure out what deals are worth going after, and which you can skip.
If you do find something you like, remember there’s no such thing as unlimited stock, and being able to quickly hop on the internet and press the buy button is the surest way to get the deal you’re looking for before it vanishes.
If ads are available early from multiple retailers, then it’s a good idea to compare prices and make sure you’re buying products from the store with the deepest discounts. Toys R Us will likely have a lot of good deals, but they may not be the very best ones available on Cyber Monday.

Expected Toys R Us deals
Cyber Monday might be about online shopping, but for Toys R Us, there will likely be a lot of overlap with the deals happening at the toy store on Black Friday.
Video games and gaming consoles are often on sale for Cyber Monday, so expect Toys R Us to have some significant deals in this category. The new Xbox One X is already out, and this fall is going to be full of new video game releases, like Star Wars Battlefront 2. New games and consoles aren’t cheap, so any Cyber Monday deal on these items is worth looking at. Lots of deals also include bundles of consoles and games together, so be on the lookout for those if you want the best prices on multiple products at the same time.
With a new Star Wars moving coming out later this year and Rogue One inventory getting old, expect some deals on everything Star Wars. Lego has had The Lego Batman Movie and will have The Lego Ninjago Movie this year, so related products may be popular and discounted. Disney and Barbie are also popular brands for deals, and should continue to be this year.
Cyber Monday may also be a good time to look out for big and expensive items you wouldn’t want to schlep out of the store yourself. If you’re looking for trampolines and Power Wheels, Cyber Monday will be a good time to do it as these will be delivered to your door (no need to squeeze them into your car).

Since Cyber Monday will have a lot of people visiting the same retailer sites at the same time, you might want to use a VPN to avoid internet congestion. If the local servers for Toys R Us are too busy during Cyber Monday, you might not be able to access the site, but a VPN can help you route your internet traffic to another region where it’s not so busy, so you can get to the deals before they are all sold out.
One last thing you won’t want to do is wait around when you see a deal on a product that you know you want. If a product is popular and has a really great deal on it, chances are everyone else has seen it and it will sell out quickly. You don’t want to stare at that product all day only to click the purchase button and have the webpage tell you that it’s no longer in stock. If you know what you want from Toys R Us during Cyber Monday 2017, don’t wait until the following Tuesday to get it.
