The only thing that makes us feel more smug than Christmas shopping early and being done before school Halloween is buying everything on sale. And isn’t that what Fall Prime Day is all about?

We’ve hunted down some of the best big ticket gifts that kids will be thrilled to get this holiday season. From bikes to train sets, you can save some serious coin if you strike while the iron is hot! We’ve found some great deals on things like LEGO and Melissa & Doug, and even the Yourigami Play couch, which has saved many a rainy day at our house. (And it’s $72 dollars off!)

Check out some of the best Amazon Prime Day toys that make perfect gifts for holiday (or even upcoming birthdays!)
