How to Shop Online for Toys

Most children have a vivid imagination and would turn everything around them into an exciting game. They are doctors who perform surgeries on plush toy rabbits, astronauts flying to the moon with your brand new… sofa, and they are kids, fascinated with the world of toys. If your youngster wants that big blue truck so much, you can buy it from a local toy shop (don’t take the kid there, you risk staying there for hours). Alternatively, you can go online and shop online for toys.

In most cases, you know what your kid wants for her/ his birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, or other festive event. She or he has already told you 50 times. You can open one of the major search engines in your browser (google, yahoo, bing, etc.) and type the wanted toy plus ‘shop online’. Some parents want to make sure they are dealing with a trusted e-commerce tailer. If you are one of them, Amazon.com is a good place to start shopping online for toys. Go to their ‘toys, kids & baby section’ and browse through the different sub-categories. You can choose by age range, brands, and characters (Barbie, Elmo, Thomas & Friends), have a look at the Back-to School Store, or hunt for bargains in the Deals & Savings section. Customers who take advantage of the Toys End-of-Summer Sale will save between 25 and 70 percent on toy purchases. An added advantage is their super saver shipping: customers get free shipping if they order items of $25 or more. Standard shipping within the United States costs $3.99 per shipment and $0.85/lb per item. You can pay from your bank account or use your Amazon gift card, American Express, MasterCard, Discover, Diners, JCB, Eurocard, or Visa check card.

Alternatively, you can check the shopping space of Overstock.com and have a look at their ‘toys & hobbies’ section. You can choose items by price range, brands, and categories. There is a huge variety of toys to look at: the dolls and dollhouses section alone contains 171 items. Another way to shop around the website is to visit the ‘clearance’ and ‘top sellers’ section. If your cart is already filled to the brink, go to checkout, and you’ll have the items shipped for just $2.95 within the territory of continental US. International shipping rates vary depending on the quantity and types of items, the level of desired service (Express or Standard), the postal code of the destination, and the items’ total weight. Shopping online for toys, you can use check card, PayPal, Overstock gift card, or your credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa).

If your youngster is a Lego fan, the company’s website is another great place to shop online for toys. Browse by age, theme (pirates, kingdoms, space police, star wars, power miners, Harry Potter, etc.), and categories – video games, action figures, vehicles, robotics, individual bricks and building accessories, and many more. You may also check their online catalogue and discover the world of Atlantis, fight the Big Fire, travel to Infinity and Beyond, or go for an Ultimate Racing Action. Look at the ‘sales and deals’ section as well and sort by item number, name, and price. If you choose the standard shipping option, your order will arrive in 3 to 8 business days (within the Unites States). Standard shipping costs vary depending on order value, e.g. if items in your shopping cart cost between $25.01 and $50, you will pay $6.95. Logo ships to multiple destinations internationally, including Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, and Spain. In the unlikely event your child is not satisfied, make sure you return the item within 90 days. And, be sure you will shop online for toys again.
