Getting ready for Amazon’s Black Friday mega sale? Well, lucky for you, the mega retailer has had ultimate deals going since this past weekend. And today, on this Thanksgiving 2017, Amazon has even deeper discounts coming for some of the year’s hottest toys.
After seeing the Thanksgiving 2017 toy deals on Amazon, I’m most thankful that I didn’t do any shopping last week because a lot of the items that were already discounted and tempting over the past week have been put on clearance even further. Seriously, a lot of these toys are even cheaper now than they were during Amazon’s Black Friday Deals week earlier this week (something to note for next year’s Christmas shopping, I suppose).
This year, Amazon’s Thanksgiving Day sale sees major discounts on toys starting right when the clock strikes midnight, sending all of the deals below live.
If you’re looking for the best deals on toys right now, look no further than Amazon’s Black Friday Deals week, starting with today’s Thanksgiving 2017 Sale:
1. Save up to 41% off select Lionel Trains
One of the biggest name brands in under the tree train sets is a big part of Amazon’s Thanksgiving 2017 toy sale, with select Lionel Trains available for up to 41% off.
Now, there’s a few things you should know about this mega train set deal. First, there are two main brands of trains for under your Christmas tree that you should know about: Bachmann and Lionel. Both companies have trains that fit a wide variety of budgets, so whether you’re looking for the best quality or you’re looking for the cheapest, you’ll find great options for both brands.
However, our personal picks for the best trains are from Lionel, as they tend to look a bit better (and they have many that are more festive in nature). The best deal here is on the Polar Express LionChief Train set which has a list price of $419 and it’s available today only on Amazon for $243.51 (you’ll find similar sets that normally retail for $319.99 at retailers like Target).
If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, and a bit more niche, the Lionel Mickey Mouse Disney Train Set is $60 off, coming in at $59.99. There are also classic Lionel trains on sale, and many of the trains featured in the deal of the day are also on Amazon’s Holiday Toy List (and our list of the best under the tree train sets). Here are the savings you’ll be seeing below:
- The Lionel Polar Express LionChief Train Set w/ Bluetooth Train Set is 25 percent off the MSRP, coming into the station at $243.51. You Save $176.48
- The Lionel Mickey Mouse Disney Ready to Play Train Set is 41 percent off and is available for $59.99 right now. You save $59.96.

2. Save 54% off B. Bristle Block Spinaroos
You can find a few great deals on some toddler toys during today’s clearance sale, and one of the best deals we’re seeing is on the B. Bristle Block Spinaroos Building Blocks Set. It normally retails for $41 at big box retailers like Wal-mart, and earlier this week, it was at a low of $31.76.
But today, Amazon has discounted it even further, and it’s now available for $14.64. Boom! That’s a savings of $26.36 on the list price.
This toy is a kit filled with chunky, soft pieces with bristles that are super easy to connect together, allowing your toddler to build and create with ease. It’s a great Christmas gift for your own toddler or if you’re buying as a gift for someone else’s kid.
3. Save 36% off IDO3D Vertical 3D Pen Set
IDO3D has some of the coolest toys for kids available, and we’ve featured their Vertical 3D pen on numerous shopping lists here at Heavy. On Thanksgiving, Amazon has the IDO3D Vertical 3D Pen Set on clearance for just $33.10 (which is 36 percent off its suggested retail price).
This kit comes with everything they’ll need to draw some cool 3D objects. The pen uses a unique blue LED light that hardens the soft, squeezable pen’s ink as you draw, meaning you’re able to draw in a three-dimensional plane. It was one of last year’s hottest toys, so if your kids still haven’t picked it up, now is the best time to do so. The pen set comes with five inks: pink, yellow, brown, white, and green.
Price: $33.10 (36% off MSRP)
4. Save 37% off K’NEX Thrill Rides Kraken’s Revenge Roller Coaster
One of the biggest building toy brands of all-time is K’NEX, and they’ve got quite a few awesome new theme-park-themed building kits that released in 2017. On Thanksgiving Day, Amazon will have one of them (the Kraken’s Revenge Roller Coaster) on sale for 37 percent off the suggested retail price, as it will be available for $29.99 (saving you $20).
This set comes with 568 classic K’NEX pieces that will allow your child to build their very own epic roller coaster, and it also comes with a battery-powered motor so that he/she can bring those K’NEX pieces to life. It also comes with super easy-to-follow instructions to show them how to build the Kraken’s Revenge coaster.
It requires 2 AA batteries, so be sure to stock up on those, too. This is likely the lowest price you’re going to find on this set for the season.
Price: $29.99 (37% off MSRP)
5. Save up to 30% off Marvel Thor: Ragnarok Toys
With Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok being such a huge critical success, it’s no surprise that Amazon would feature the new line of Thor toys from Hasbro in their huge Thanksgiving Day sale. Today, you can save up to 29 percent on some of the cool new Thor toys.
The Hulk Smash FX Fists are just $10.83, which is the lowest you’ll see them this year, as their MSRP is $29.99. These mega-size hard foam fists will let your kids be Hulk. The set includes 1 fist that electronically plays Hulk’s sound effects from the movie, and the other fist doesn’t. Super cool set, and it’s on our list of the best new toys of 2017.

9. Save 20% off Space Scooter Ride On
The Space Scooter Ride-on is another type of ride-on, but it’s aimed at the slightly older crowd than the toddler ride-on above. Today, Amazon has it on clearance for just $119.96, which is 20 percent off. You save $30.
The Space Scooter uses kinetic motion that’s created from a teeter-totter-like motion to propel the scooter forward. So, unlike with other scooters, you never have to take your feet off of it to get a few pumps. It’s a smarter scooter for a new generation of kids.
It’s available in 10 colors, including black, blue, orange, and pink, so there are some options.
