Today’s Best Sales: Messenger Bags, Harry Potter Halloween Costumes, and an R2D2 Bubble Machine

Today's best sales include discounts on a super practical leather messenger bag and a frivolous but oh so fun R2D2 bubble maker.

Every day, the Internet is teeming with deals, sales, discounts, and savings. But, as the Internet is a big, distracting place, said deals can be difficult to find. Plus, you don’t have time to sniff ’em all out. You have work and kids and a total of 25 minutes of free time that shouldn’t be spent looking for discounts. So, to help you out, we’ll be combing through the daily offerings and rounding up the deals we like, and think you might find useful. Today, we spotted deals on leather messenger bags, a variety of Halloween costumes, a creative Lego kit, and the R2D2 bubble machine you never knew you needed.

RusticTown Leather Bags

It’s not a brand we’re too familiar with, but RusticTown bags have stellar Amazon reviews and they’re 25 percent on the site today. Included in the sale are toiletry bags, duffles, and this messenger bag, which we’re into. Made of 100 percent buffalo leather, it features brass buckles, a detachable shoulder strap, and two outer pockets. Inside, you’ll find a sleeve that can accommodate up to a 15.6-inch laptop as well as spots for pens, cards, and anything else you might need to bring along.

Harry Potter Halloween Costumes

With three weeks until Halloween, the procrastinator in you knows you have plenty of time to pick out costumes for you and your kids, but the smart dad in you knows that doing so now is a great idea. Amazon is trying to help the second guy with deals on a bunch of Halloween costumes, including this robe inspired by the Fantastic Beasts film series. It has a pointed hood, inside pocket (for a wand, obviously), and sewn-on Gryffindor patch. Normally about $100, you can pick it up for $75 today.

Lego Classic World Fun Building Kit

This 295-piece kit is part of Lego’s Building Bigger Thinking theme. Unlike traditional Lego kits, which include pieces to build one model, this come with a hodge lodge similar to the random assortment of Lego bricks that any long term fan eventually builds up. It includes instructions for fairly simple models that are great for kids new to Lego, but the real fun of the set comes when kids use the brightly colored bricks to assemble models of their own design. Start building with this unique set today for just $14, 30 percent off the list price.

Star Wars R2D2 Bubble Machine

Look, we’re not going to sit here and tell you that you need a Star Wars droid that blows bubbles. But if you wanted one, wouldn’t you want one that includes authentic lights and sounds, a head that rotates 90 degrees, and eight ounces off bubble solution? Assuming your answer is yes, then today is the day to pick up an R2D2 bubble machine at Walmart, where you can save about 75 percent off of its normal $72 price tag.
