Christmas is just a couple months away!🎄

It’s never too early to get a head start on Christmas shopping, especially toys! Amazon recently released a list of their Top 100 Holiday Toys, and there is something for every kid on your list!

Not sure where to start? Check out these 10 Toys (rated 4.5+ stars):

(I’d suggest bookmarking any of these toy links you’re interested in and checking back regularly to see if the price has dropped. We will also be posting on Hip2Save when we see price drops, so stay tuned!)

1.) Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit

Kids can create their own custom Droid and bring it to life using littleBits electronic blocks! With the free Droid Inventor app, they’ll give their R2 Unit new abilities and take it on 16+ missions. Then they’ll level-up their inventor skills, re-configuring parts to design any Droid they can dream up.

2.) Cozmo the Toy Robot

Say Hello to Cozmo, a gifted little guy who’s got a mind of his own and a few tricks up his sleeve. He’s curiously smart, a little mischievous, and unlike anything ever created. Cozmo is a real-life robot like you’ve only seen in movies, with a one-of-a-kind personality that evolves the more you hang out. He’ll nudge you to play and keep you constantly surprised.

3.) Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit

Give your child a hands-on introduction to electronics with Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100. This innovative kit contains over 30 color-coded, real circuit components that snap together to create working electronic circuits and devices. Recommended for children 8 and older, this set offers 101 do-it-yourself projects that will give your child an entertaining, concrete education on how electronics work.

4.) Klutz LEGO Chain Reactions Craft Kit

The Klutz LEGO Chain Reactions Craft Kit contains what you need to turn ordinary bricks into amazing chain reaction machines. With 78 pages of detailed instructions with brightly colored images, kids will learn to build machines ranging in complexity from easy to advance.

5.) LeapFrog Shapes And Sharing Picnic Basket

The Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket helps little learners explore shapes, colors, manners, and more. The 14-piece set helps children build motor skills as they sort, match, stack, empty, and fill. Recommended for children ages 6 to 36 months.

6.) VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set

Perform like a star with the KidiBeats Drum Set. Tap the three light-up drum pads and cymbal with the included drumsticks to hear each of their unique sounds for sensory development. Play along to built-in melodies in a variety of styles including rock, dance, pop or in your own style to encourage musical creativity. Four play modes include Free Play, Letters, Numbers and Follow Along.

7.) LeapFrog Scribble and Write

Children trace the lights to get practice drawing upper- and lowercase letters and numbers. Scribble & Write provides stroke-by-stroke guidance and has a NEW mode that provides instant accuracy feedback. Best of all, Scribble & Write uses a single re-traceable surface for ease of use and portability. Appropriate for children ages 3 years and up.

8.) Fisher-Price Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi

With 360 degrees of mobility, 3 exciting game modes and 6 games to choose from, Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi encourages preschoolers to get their minds and bodies moving while teaching them how to follow directions and think critically about the world around them!

9.) Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Dancing Groot

This 11.5-inch Dancing Groot figure plays a clip from the upcoming Guardians of Galaxy Volume 2 movie soundtrack, so that when the far-out beat starts to play, Groot can’t help but to get those roots in motion! Groot can also detect external music, so when the figure recognizes tunes from a phone, tablet, or other device, Dancing Groot starts to boogie!

10.) Barbie Dreamhouse

Dream up all kinds of stories with three floors, seven rooms, 70+ accessories and a working elevator with simple pull mechanism. This Barbie Dreamhouse provides the perfect setting for all kinds of stories, from a fun night in to getting ready for girls’ night out.

What toys are on your holiday shopping list?

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
