eBay is the perfect place to find *HOT* Christmas Toys!

We're big fans of eBay in my house. Not only do we use it to purchase items but we're also big into selling items. We like to use eBay to discover new items or find that one unique item you need to complete a collection. Now that we have kids we're all about finding toys on eBay. Just a few months ago we found this Squinkie set that my daughter has been asking for. It wasn't in the stores but it was on eBay!

Now even though I would like to say that I'm pretty proficient at using eBay I honestly didn't know that big stores like Toys 'R' Us (TRU) actually have a store on eBay. That's right! While you are searching around for items on eBay you can visit the Toys 'R' Us eBay store and find the same great toy selection without having to open another window or head to the Toys 'R' Us site! Even better you don't have to fight the lines or customers in the actual Toys 'R' Us store. Not to mention I personally like shopping in my pjs! One stop shopping gets the thumbs up from this frugal mom! Check out this super funny video- I just had to share it!

Now of course like other frugal moms I've really been hitting eBay hard looking for some great Christmas toys for the kids. I started my shopping a few months ago but of course I'm still shopping. I mean when there are events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday who can resist! As a matter of fact I've listed a few of my (actually my kids) favorites from the TRU eBay store which by the way even lets you search the store by gender, age, and BUDGET:

  1. Leap Pad 2- yes we have the first one but I have two kids who don't like to share...LOL
  2. Minnie Mouse Sing and Stroll MP3 boombox Purse - my daughter is obsessed with Minnie
  3. Fisher Price Jake and the Never Land Pirates Splashin Bucky Bath Toy- They love bath toys and Disney
  4. Any of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Action Figures- my son is obsessed
  5. Minnie Mouse Bow-tique Flippin' Fun Kitchen- she's outgrown her other kitchen
  6. Disney Princess Petite Princesses Party Gift Set- ok so this is one I would personally love to get her
  7. The Home Depot Master Workshop- yeah, right! Maybe a smaller version...LOL
Now being a constant eBay shopper my husband also loves to peruse eBay itself and find fun toys for the kids. Here's his top three picks for the season:

  1. Batman Hotwheels Monster Truck Monster Jam Hot Wheels- my son loves Superheroes and Monster Trucks
  2. Fisher Price Imaginext Pirate Ship- Both the kids would love this
  3. Disney Doc McStuffins & Lambie Time for your Checkup Doll- My daughter loves this show
Don't worry if you're a newbie to eBay Holiday shopping. They have a great holiday gift guide to help you out! It includes best sellers in toys, electronics and even designer gifts. It also helps to have the handy eBay mobile app for price comparison and shopping on the go! We've personally used it to manage our auctions, and keep a watch on items we are bidding on. It even sends you notifications on bid changes, when you win and when auctions are over! My husband says it's like having a mini eBay in your pocket. To try it out for yourself head over HERE and download it!
