Amazon deals for Thanksgiving week

Here's another Black Friday post, highlighting some of's Black Friday Deals for parents.

Deals in Toys and Games include:

  • "Lightning Deals" — big deals come up for a few hours at a time throughout the day, so check Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycleback! You have 15 minutes to purchase an item once it's added to your cart — you can still use Free Super Saver Shipping, but hurry to find extra items if needed to get up to $25.
  • $10 off $30 on select Fisher-Price toys
  • Up to 40% off Radio Flyer ride-on trikes and wagons
  • LeapFrog Leapster games for only $8.99 each
  • Pretend-play toys from Learning Resources and the My Kitchen Set from Alex Toys
  • Toys from Melissa & Doug, LEGO, Fisher-Price, and more that fit your budget — just look for the categories marked "Great Gifts for $25 or Less" or $50 or $75

There are deals on Clothing, including Men's, Women's, Egg Maternity Women's Maternity Hammered Satin Wrap Top,Black,Smalland Kids, as well as special sizes including Maternity and Nursing. There are even special links where you can search for steep deals, such as 75% off Kids' and Baby Clothing.

Other fun things on sale for babywearing, breastfeeding, cloth diapering/EC, and other baby care (though not related to the Thanksgiving deals) are the Baby K'tan, select Britax and Sunshine Kids car seats, BABYBJÖRN Little Potty (perfect for ECing little tushies and potty training tykes), 5-Pak of Kushies AIO Diapers (great starter kit for a relative or friend you know who's interested in cloth diapering — or would be!), and cloth nursing pads from MamaLittleHelper.

Don't forget to peek in Pandigital Pantouch PAN8000DWPCF1 8-Inch Touchscreen LCD Digital Picture Frame with 1 GB Internal Memory (Espresso Brown)Electronics if you're looking for a still camera or video camera to capture your little one, or a digital photo frame to display your images. A digital frame would make a perfect gift for grandparents, too, take it from me!

There are also deals on Video Games, Music (look for kids' CDs or MP3 downloads), DVDs, and, of course, Books for kids of all ages. You can search by age from baby to teen. A favorite book always makes for a cherished gift!

Another item I've been very curious about is the Kindle wireless reading device. I had the chance to check one out in action at a couple stores, and it looks really nice and felt probably Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6" Display, Graphite, 3G Works Globally - Latest Generationas light as my phone. The display was clear and less shiny than my phone or laptop, like reading print. I used to think I would never take to reading ebooks, but ever since I got a smart phone, it's so easy to pop one on there and read as I find a minute here and there. I also like that I can search and bookmark easily (such as with nonfiction, parenting books). I could see the Kindle being a really fun toy. You can pick up the latest model for $139 with Wi-Fi or $189 with 3G as well. If you want just one of the ebooks for Kindle as a gift (easy delivery!) or for yourself, they can be read at no additional cost on a PC, Mac, or smartphone using one of Amazon's free reading apps.

In case anyone is wondering, here's my take on the recent Amazon hoopla: both why I think the book that was removed is repulsive and Amazon has behaved stupidly, but also why I won't be boycotting them at this time.
