Target 70% Toy Clearance Tips and Haul

by jessicaturner on July 31, 2014

Twice a year, Target clearances a bunch of its toys to make room for new inventory. This sale typically happens the last Thursday of July and the last Thursday of January.

Today is the day for this incredible sale.

I went to Target right at 8 am (before work) to snatch up as much as I could. I will use these toys for Christmas gifts, holiday toy donations and birthday party gifts for throughout the year.

It was one of the best sales I have been to! SO many quality toys at incredibly low prices.

Pictured above is just a sampling of the many, many toys I bought.

Some of the best deals I found:

  • Melissa & Doug craft sets for $2-$3
  • Many Leap Frog toys and accessories
  • Great games for $5-$8
  • Tons of Sofia dolls and accessories for $2 – $12
  • My Little Ponies for $3-$6
  • Lots of puzzles for $2-$4
  • Several fun baby toys for $4-$8
  • A few Star Wars toys including a doll that switches from Anakin to Luke Skywalker

My favorite items that I found were two vtech toys (a VTech InnoTab 3S Wi-Fi Learning Tablet and VTech Switch & Go Dinos Jagger The T-Rex Dinosaur), which each retailed for $70-$80 and I got for about $20 each. Elias is going to LOVE them!

Target toy clearanceI also was excited about several of the games I got including the Disney Hedbanz Board Game. I also found some cute little Doc McStuffins doctor kits for $3.

This toy clearance is done by manually changing the prices. It isn’t like a holiday clearance where the items are marked down system wide. For several of the items I found, an employee was happy to check the price and then mark-it down if it hadn’t been marked yet. Never be afraid to ask!

Also, walk the aisles more than once. You will be surprised what you missed the first time through.

Definitely go to Target today to get the best deals. Most of the toys will be very picked over by the weekend.

Are these only good at the store or also online?

Just in store because they need to clear the shelves for toys for Christmas!

Wow Jessica! You did awesome. I adore the Melissa & Doug items.

I hope I can find one of those Doc McStuffins kits for my little girl. Daddy is a paramedic and she likes to be just like him! :)

I’m going to try to make it to Target tomorrow. My son wants an Innotab 3S. I hope they are marked down at my local store.

My store isn’t having a huge clearance sale, but in Minneapolis, Dallas, and Chicago they are doing a buy one get one 40% off sale. It works on clearance for the things that are marked clearance, but there isn’t a ton of clearance, just a little bit more than normal. It’s still a good sale though!

I got Legos and some Imaginext toys last week for 50% off. I’m saving them for Christmas. I’ll check things out again tomorrow!

I was able to get 5 items under $6.00. So psyched for this advise since my son has a September b-day and it bumps so close to Christmas. I have a head start! I had to wait until I was out of work so the shelves were picked, but I ended up going to 2 different Targets to get the deals.

Glad you were able to score some great deals!
