The 2016 Amazon Holiday Toy List was recently released along with the Amazon Holiday Toy Lightning Deals! Amazon lightning deals can be an amazing way to save during the holiday shopping season.  A lightning deal is just like it sounds – it’s a deal that hits quick and usually lasts for a short time, with limited supplies. We can sometimes get a sneak peek at upcoming deals, but we never know what the exact price will be until the sale opens.  Remember Amazon Prime Members get early access to select lightning deals and you can always follow Queen Bee Coupons on Facebook where I will share deals, with a direct link to Amazon, when I think it’s a particularly exciting deal.

  1. so I pre ordered the Rudolph movie but I didn’t get the pop up book- any ideas how to get that?!

    • Hey Brittni, I must have mis-read it. The description says, “Commemorative Golden Anniversary Package with Foil and Embossing Digitally Remastered Feature All-New Content Rudolph Unwrapped 50 charming gifts about the beloved holiday special Rudolph Video Pop Up Book – A modern twist on the holiday pop-up book Sam the Snowman s Sing-Along Spectacular – Brand new sing-alongs of the most famous Rudolph songs Learn to Draw – Get step-by-step tutorials on how to draw your favorite characters Includes DreamWorks Penguins of Madagascar movie Movie Cash Offer* (up to $7.50 value)” I thought that meant it came with a pop-up book – but now that I’m reading it again, it says “Video” Pop-Up Book – I wonder if this is a special feature on the DVD. I thought it was a pop-up book that would follow along with the video. Hmmmm. . . . check special features on DVD – wonder if it’s there.

  2. I got A Christmas Story and The Polar Express on blu-ray for $7.99 each at Costco yesterday. They also had Elf, Scrooged, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for the same price.

    I also picked up Walking With Dinosaurs on blu-ray for $9.99 (it’s $19.60 on Amazon).

  3. Yay!!! You are back!! So happy!!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing the best toy deals on Amazon. The Lego advent calenders are two dollars cheaper on but you have to pay shipping. However, the Lego Jericho movie on Amazon is $29 but is only $11 on so my $8 shipping expense was worth it. Just thought I would share in case anybody else was interested in those items.

  5. Not necessarily for this list, but I am seeing lots of other blu-ray movies for great prices like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Tommy Boy, Old School, 2010: The Year We Make Contact, and The Bodyguard for $4.88 on Amazon.

    Also, kids movies like:
    Thumbelina blu-ray $5.00
    The Neverending Story blu-ray $5.88

  6. Nightmare before Christmas on blu-ray dropped to $12.99 at Amazon and All Dogs go to Heaven on blu-ray dropped to $5.99.

  7. Helen in Meridian says:

    Thinking of your little daughter, Today is the 40th Anniversary of Hello Kitty. Sis says that McD’s Happy Meals for girls have Hello Kitty this week. I remember about 38 years ago, the Hallmark stores in Portland sold some Hello Kitty and the Snoopy dogs in 2 sizes with lots of outfits. I bought my son s Snoopy and clothes, because it was not a doll, but a dog to dress. Of course since I collect dolls, he had lots of great boy dolls. Determined Productions at that time made Hello Kitty and Snoopy.

  8. Darn, looks like the Lincoln logs got away!!: (

  9. Last year your amazon toy deals were what first brought me to your queenbee site. I’ve been a daily visitor since. I love your heads up on all the amazon deals throughout the year and an now an amazon prime member. Thanks for all the time you put in, I hope amazon rewards you for it.

  10. Hi Heather, How do you find best deals on Amazon, Do you use some service? or just search on Amazon?

    • Hi Vitaly, I do a LOT of price research on products and watch items closely. I have specific areas that I look for deals, but I’m not willing to share all my secrets – Amazon is the primary way that I support the site and my family. Mostly it’s a LOT of time on the site and a lot of visual tracking 🙂

  11. Emily Adams says:

    I can’t wait for all of the deals, I have a niece and nephew with a birthday in November and my oldest daughter’s birthday is in December. So the fall is busy for me since I need to shop for birthdays and Christmas.

  12. So psyched. Will the FB Deals page be up again? Is there a link?

  13. Christine Geddis says:

    Hey, last year Amazon had a deal on the Xbox 360 live gold 12 month membership, have they done that this year, or did I miss it?

  14. I just found your website this week. Wow! You have the best Amazon toy list. I look forward to stocking up each this time each year and you have just made my job much easier. THANK YOU!

    • Hey April! WELCOME. So glad you’re here. I love Amazon deals and post them all year. But this toy list is definitely one of my reader’s favorite things every holiday! 🙂 Happy Holidays!

  15. Olive Carsey says:

    The TMNT race track is back up to 61.99, and the TMNT Stealth Tech Leo is back up to 11.99

  16. The Leapfrog Touch Magic Counting Train looks to be back up to 21.99 again.. 🙁

  17. The M&D Pattern puzzles went back up to $17+. I should’ve bought them earlier before I ran errands.

  18. tracy Wiseman says:

    Do you know if amazon does price adjust if you bought something and then the price drops? I know the answer is probably no but it never hurt s to ask. By the way I love your site and I appreciate the hard work you put into it. Your site is my addiction.I check it every morning, at my break at work, at lunch…well you get the picture. Thank you again for hunting down all these great deals

    • Amazon does not have an official policy that says they will price match. However, it can never hurt to ask. I have found that usually, if it’s been within the last 7 days, that they will give you a promotional credit for the difference.

  19. I did want to ask. I’ve been looking for Beats by Dre headphones at a good price. I should have grabbed that black Friday deal. Any thoughts?

  20. You always do such a wonderful job with your comprehensive list and have made our shopping way easier this Christmas. Thank you for your hard work!

  21. The Fisher Price ballapalooza is OOS. 🙁

  22. Chrystal Lampman says:

  23. thanks so much for your website! i love getting shopping done on-line but find it difficult to know where to go for deals. your site is so well-organized, i can find exactly what i’m looking for! thank you!!

  24. Thanks Heather for all your hard work on this list- and for reminding me about Amazon coupons which I always seem to forget! Just saved $$ on the Iris Lego 3 drawer organizer I had in my cart!

  25. Thank you so very much for keeping this list updated and providing it for all of us! I’ve been checking it and have scored a few good deals!

  26. Thanks Heather! Shopping for my nieces and nephew is now complete! ????

  27. The Leap Pad Ultra no longer has the $30 promo attached. 🙁

  28. Thank you so much for all your hard work to bring us these great deals. I have half my shopping complete from reading your posts. Great gifts at great prices. I don’t know when you eat or sleep. So awesome!

  29. YES! God bless you for your hard work! I’ve been looking for a play-doh deal and thanks to you, I found it! I wonder where I can get the cheapest LIttle Mermaid stuff and Doc Mcstuffins toys/dolls from? YOU ROCK!

  30. Hi,
    Thanks for all the great info.! In your Lego section I haven’t seen any of the Lego Friends items. Do you look for those deals as well, or just general Lego sets?

  31. Thank you SO much for all your work in saving us money. Helps so much 🙂
