We’re pretty proud of out, now famous, toy gift guide especially during the Christmas season. But if it’s one thing we learned recently is that due to all things pandemic toy sales are on the rise, puzzles are impossible to come by, and if you’re looking for any of the newbies that every kid is obsessing over – they’re almost impossible to find in-stock. One of our readers tipped us off to Toynk Toys and, well, needless to say the rest was history.
To be honest, we’d never heard of them before and we’re totally late to the game (pun only sort of intended), but now that we finally discovered them we wanted to share it with all of you! They actually have some really popular options for kids of all ages but, for us, even some real must-haves for us adults who are still kids at heart. We’re talking some of the coolest (and funniest) merch from:
- The Golden Girls
- The Office
- Friends (The TV Show)
- Harry Potter
- The Mandalorian
- Bob Ross
- So. Much. More.
On a personal level, they totally were clutch in the 11th hour (almost literally) when we were trying to find anything in-stock from The Mandalorian for my 10 year old nephew who was/is extremely obsessed with all things “Baby Yoda.” We, of course, saw some options on Amazon from third party sellers that were asking upwards of 4x the price (bummer) and everywhere else we say was either out of stock or we weren’t even sure if the merch was real (we’re looking at you, eBay).
We already had found him the Animatronic Baby Yoda (thank God) but we were able to pick up some cute Funko Pop merch, funny slippers, and eve this funky night-light. And, not only were they all in-stock, but we also got free shipping too…which, was totally mind blowing for us.
Their customer service was actually pretty good too. Due to Covid they weren’t in-store and you (temporarily) couldn’t call them, but they actually responded back to our email in about 4 hours – and dealt with all of our annoying questions. Overall the experience was really great and while we know you have your go-to’s when it comes to buying stuff for your kids online, we really think you should give Toynk a try – especially if you’re having a hard time finding the latest must-haves.
The Deal With the Deals:
While the prices are pretty decent and some stuff was definitely on sale, online it was tough for us to browse all their merch that was currently on sale. We had to dig a bit by category and then sort the results to see if anything we were interested was currently on sale. Definitely not the worst, but we really hoped for a main “sale” section.
They do have a “Rewards” section that explains how to score some great deals by collecting points, etc. You can check that out here if you’re interested.
To Gift or Not to Gift:
The answer to this is 100% yes! Do it! Of course there are unique gift ideas for your kiddos, but there’s actually a bunch of options for so many of the people on your list. Here’s a quick rundown of some fun ideas based on some of our most popular gift guides:
- Teen Girls – Go with any of these from The Office – See it here
- Nerds + Geeks – Go with these Star Trek best sellers – See it here
- Teen Boys – Go with these Minecraft must-haves – See it here
- Friends – Go with popular items from the Friends show – See it here
Just make sure you pick up something for yourself too!
The Deal With Promo Codes:
So overall, no, Toynk Toys doesn’t have coupons or promo codes they send out to websites. So if you’re looking on some of those sites that claim to have exclusives, you may just be wasting your time. We don’t have any codes here either, but you’re not totally out of luck yet.
Upon further research (we’re so legit) we did find that we could take 10% off our purchase simply by signing up for their emailed newsletter. And there’s their free shipping offer, which is always amazing! As always, we recommend to check them out and shop directly because they’ll be the first to let you know any of their active discount codes they may have going on today. Check out everything here!
