Quality toys at competitive prices!

Did you know that Sweet Spot Toys not only offers great quality toys from brands you trust, but at competitive prices?  It's true, not only do we offer great toys we offer great prices too!  If you haven't checked out our selection lately please do, not only are you going to find a great selection of toys that is ever expanding, but also prices that few can beat!  

Take for example the Snow Miser and Heat Miser action figures by NECA.  Normally you would have to go to ebay and pay $30 or more.  At Sweet Spot Toys those same figures can be purchased for $21.99 each.  Sweet Spot Toys also offers a great selection of Melissa & Doug puzzles, many places charge $15 each for them, at Sweet Spot Toys you will not pay more than $10.98 for a 1000 piece puzzle.  I could go on and on but I think you get the point.  Just remember if you ever need great toys at great prices head on over to the sweet spot, www.Sweet-Spot-Toys.com!

Notice to all Sweet Spot Toys customers

Okay, so I have posted this to Facebook and Twitter, now I am posting it here.  If you plan to order toys or anything at all from the site in the coming days I suggest you do so sooner rather than later.  Any orders that are placed between Thursday March 3rd and Thursday March 10th will not ship until Friday March 11th.  So if you plan to place an order on the site in the coming days and you need it before the end of next week I suggest you place your order within the next couple of days.  Thank for your cooperation and your business!

Getting back in stock!

So I realize many popular toys on the site have been out of stock since Christmas, and I realize some of you have been waiting patiently for them to be in stock once again.  Well, good news!  I have managed to restock all of the Wrebbit puzzles that were out of stock and I have even added the two Harry Potter puzzles to the site.  In addition to puzzles I have been working on getting the NECA dancing Gizmo back in stock, and it should be back in stock before the end of the month, and everyone who is on the pre-order waiting list, don't worry yours will be shipped as soon as I get them in.  Don't forget if you have questions about items, pre-orders, or anything for that matter use the contact form on the site for the quickest response.

 

Pre-orders now available on select items!

Starting January 4th 2016 Sweet Spot Toys will begin a trial run offering pre-orders on select items. This trial run will be for items that are currently sold on the site but sell out frequently.  The goal of this trial is to test out the system, and to improve our in-stock.  Assuming everything goes well, in the coming months this offer may be extended to new release merchandise.  If anyone has any questions or concerns about pre-orders or if you happen to encounter any issues please use the contact form located on the contact us page to let us know.

New plush now available!

If you haven't checked out the plush section of Sweet Spot Toys lately, now is the time.  Over the past couple of weeks a few new items have been added including a musical singing Gizmo from Gremlins and a couple of new woodland creatures from Melissa & Doug.  If plush isn't your thing I have also added two Lincoln Log sets including the Oak Creek Lodge set and the 100th anniversary tin!

What are the hot toys for Christmas 2015?

One of the questions I get asked more than anything this time of year is what are the hot toys for Christmas?  In many years past you have had things like Cabbage Patch dolls, Tickle me Elmo, new video game consoles, and more.  This year there doesn't seem to be that one must have that people are waiting in lines for, however, there are still items that you should be on the look out above others.  For 2015 the following items appear to be the items that seem to be making it on most kid's wish lists.  Keep in mind that some of these items are for preschoolers, some are for elementary and middle school aged kids, while others are more suited to bigger kids.

Hot Christmas items for 2015!

  • Peppa Pig - it seems every little kid is enamored by Peppa pig, unfortunately the selection for Peppa Pig toys seems to be limited to a handful of products and they are selling out fast wherever they are sold.  Price $7.99 - $39.99
  • Shopkins - Shopkins were getting popular at this time last year, however, there wasn't a large enough supply of toys to meet demand.  It appears now that demand has been met at most retailers and that these little toys are still in demand by kids everywhere.  Price $2.99 - $19.99
  • Bright Beats Dance and Move BeatBo - Fisher Price has created this cool toy that dances and sings.  Not only is this toy popular with kids, but many adults will find it entertaining as well.  Price $34.99
  • Lego Jurassic World - This line of Lego has become so popular that either Lego can't keep up with demand or stores just can't keep it in stock.  Either way it's selling out as quickly as it hits shelves, so if someone you know has this on their short list I suggest hunting around now, before you have to resort to the high prices of Ebay.  Price $19.99 - $129.99
  • Black ops 3 - If you have a kid in middle or high school I expect this game to be on many of their lists.  This is the continuation of Call of Duty's most popular video game series and will mark the return of the popular zombie mode.  Price $59.99
  • Fallout 4 - Another video game set to come out in November.  Fallout 4 is the most highly anticipated release of the year.  Price $59.99
  • Drones - If there was an "it" item this year drones would be it.  No there aren't massive lines forming for them, but that's only because there are plenty of companies making just as many models.  If this is on the short list of anyone you know I would make one recommendation, do your homework.  There are many models to choose from and the prices range anywhere from $20  for nano units to several $1,000's for high end consumer models.  Price $20 - $1,000+

Keep in mind that if you are still undecided on what to buy someone, you can never go wrong with classics like, board games, lego, and puzzles especially if the subject matter is relevant to the recipient, and if all else fails what kid doesn't enjoy a gift card?

 

New games in stock!

Although this blog is a day or so behind the times I would like to encourage everyone to check out the games section.  I recently added a selection of Steve Jackson games to the site, this includes Munchkin, Munchkin Steampunk, Dino Hunt Dice, as well as a couple of others.  In addition to those items I have added the board games Zombies Keep Out, and Revolution both worth checking out.  Finally, I added in the construction section a couple of The Walking Dead construction sets by McFarlane Toys, these include the Prison Boiler Room and the Atlanta Hospital Doors sets.
