Who knows when Easter baskets evolved from being filled with jelly beans and chocolate bunnies to coming stacked with Nerf blasters and Play-Doh, but they did — Easter Basket toys remain a growing trend. And whether parents agree with the idea or not, it does mean one thing: there are a lot of Christmas-like sales on toys going on. It’s great if you are into the idea of the Easter Bunny giving toys and even greater if you just want to save cash on your kid’s July birthday presents.
Hasbro is having one such sale today only on Amazon, knocking up to 35 percent off a good-sized selection of its most popular toys. Nerf, Furby, Transformers, My Little Pony, Play-Doh, board games ⏤ the whole basket of eggs. Here are a few highlights:
Sesame Street Tickle Me Elmo
Considering stuffed animals have always been an Easter basket tradition, throwing in this rebooted version of Elmo for only $17 seems like a safe move.
Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster
Nerf’s six-shot “slam fire” pistol has a rotating barrel that flips open for easing loading and shoots Elite darts up to 90 feet.
Disney Frozen Festive Friends Collection
Based on Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, this set of four Barbie-sized dolls includes all the main characters (Anna, Else, Kristof, and Olaf), and is marked down from $50 to $30.
