80% Off Toys at Etoys

Check out their many pages of toys marked 80% off or more. They say there are only 3 more days to ship by Xmas (after that I guess I'll be shopping only at Amazon, since my Prime subscription gets me free 2-day shipping and only $3.99 for overnight).

I'm thinking about getting this to stop the kids from jumping on the bed and couch. Not sure where we could fit it, but man, these kids NEED to jump around. And I could give it to both of them on Xmas morning, so there would be no jealousy. I hope. And something huge that they've never seen before will provide the "wow" factor you want on Christmas morning, don't you think? For under $20 shipped.

I wanted to only give one gift and then stockings to each girl, but, same as happend last year, I keep finding cute and inexpensive things for the 4-year-old. Then I'm stuck scratching my head over things to buy for the almost-2-year-old so it's not totally imbalanced. I'd like to get the younger girl a Big Wheel
(on sale at Target for $30 this week) but the hubs thinks that's silly since it's too cold out right now. Oh, I guess I'll just get the little one a few books, which she loves, and that will even things out.

How old are the kids you're thinking about for the jumping dealie? I was wondering about that item for my little cousins....

It is for my kids -- they're almost 2 and 4. I don't know why the thing says ages 3 and up, except that MOST toys say that just to avoid lawsuits.

Gotta say, I'm pretty impressed with the amazon toy sales. I just ordered Bubble the barbie my house ($12 on amazon, $30 at Target) and the barbie 1G MP3 player ($12 and you get to pick a free accessory kit). No tax and free shipping--hard to beat!
