There's a funny little thing I've noticed about Toys R Us and the months of November and December. I've had a theory for a few years now and I've watched to see if it held true.
Here's my theory: The toy specials in November are better than the ones in December. For a few years, I waited in November thinking there would be better sales in December. But, I watched. The sales seemed to consistently to be better in November. So, if there's a special toy you're thinking of buying for your child for Christmas and you see it go on sale in November. It is probably be a good time to get it!
