Black Friday and Cyber Monday are increasingly important parts of the holiday shopping calendar in 2018.
U.S. consumers are expected to spend roughly $250 billion between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday. What’s more, more Americans are choosing to shop online. Out of $5 billion in consumer spending online on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, 71 percent of it will be made by people who are either using an online shopping platform or conducting their holiday shopping via a smartphone, according to Adobe.
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday right around the corner, Toys R Us is working with the help of its parent company, Toys R Us Inc., to provide consumers with not only the best prices of the season but also a variety of entertainment, toys and games for the kids in their lives.
The company is releasing its early gift guide for the holiday shopping season on Friday, and you can check out the highlights:
Blind or Visionary Playground — “Explore!” Introduce kids to new uses for those new senses at the new Blind or Visionary Playground. This giant interactive play zone features doors that can be unlocked, six massive boulders to build their own castle and even virtual tour guides.
