From Blu-Ray to Play Doh: Black Friday Deals for the Whole Family

From Blu-Ray to Play Doh: Black Friday Deals for the Whole Family

If there were ever a time to get a sitter, this could be it.

Black Friday is coming up fast, and retailers are opening earlier than ever this year, hoping to attract customers on Thanksgiving night instead of waiting for dawn. Some people even cut Thanksgiving a tad short in honor of the sales, planning their routes while mashing potatoes.

So, we’ve scoured the internet for some of the best family-friendly deals this year. (Though, if you want, we can help with the potatoes, too!)

Below, you'll find the clothes, toys and electronics that will be reduced the most on Black Friday (and now, Thursday) this year. Where available, we've also included links to the store promotions that wily bargain-hunters have already posted online.

Do You Shop Black Friday?

How do you budget for the holidays? Is most of your shopping done by the time Black Friday rolls around, or are you waiting for the doors to open every year?

That said, not everyone is cut out for the early-morning spending spree. To find out if you have the right personality to handle Black Friday, take our quiz.

We trust that you’ll know how to use them.
