It’s almost here! That wonderful day filled with joy and abundance. I’m talking of course about Black Friday! (OK, Thanksgiving is pretty special, too.) Here are a few deals you won’t want to miss, whether you’re shopping for your kids, your spouse or yourself. Don’t forget to give thanks for all the money you’ll be saving.
Step2 Modern Cook Kitchen Set
Play kitchens seem to be all the rage this holiday, so grab this one for your little chef while you can. This one from Step2 has a special frying pan and pot that activates sounds on the electronic light-up stove-top burner, clicking knobs on stove top and oven, and even a recycling bin for your eco-conscious mini Anthony Bourdain.
To buy: Step2 Modern Cook Kitchen Set, $59.99 (was $109.99)
Disney Pixar Cars 3 Speedway Coaster
If there's anything better than having a roller coaster in your backyard, I haven’t heard of it. Your little thrill-seeker can climb to the top of the coaster using the non-slip steps and and then zoom down the ramp in the Lightning McQueen car. (Hold on, I just realized what a terrible childhood I had because I didn’t have a roller coaster in my backyard.)

Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer
You’ve probably been coveting this in your friend’s kitchen for years, so why not buy yourself one? Just think of all the cookies you can whip up for the school bake sale or the all the money you’ll save when you start baking all of your kid’s birthday cakes from scratch. It has a 5-quart mixing bowl, 325-watt motor, 10 speed settings and it comes in a million colors. And another bonus: If you’ve got a 20 percent off coupon from this retailer laying around (and who doesn’t?), it brings the price down to an unbelievably low $223.99.
