If you haven’t completely depleted your bank account from last week’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday hype — we have some good news for you. Amazon has just launched its ’12 Days of Deals’ promotion, offering discounts on a wide array of products that you can either gift to friends, family or yourself.

Shoppers can expect Amazon to post its new daily deals live at 12am (PST) each day until the promotion ends on Dec. 13. Deals will be changing every 24 hours, covering the following themes in this order:

Dec. 2: Home improvement
Dec. 3: Video games
Dec. 4: Toys
Dec. 5: PC
Dec. 6: Home (bedding/bath/décor)
Dec. 7: Fashion
Dec. 8: Baby, pets, camera
Dec. 9: Beauty and personal care
Dec. 10: Electronics
Dec. 11: Kitchen
Dec. 12: Furniture lawn and garden
Dec. 13: Sports and outdoors

To shop these deals, all you have to do is visit the Amazon website’s landing page for the promotion. Also, when shopping on Amazon, make sure you’re using the best-suited credit card to maximize your purchases. For today, Dec. 4, we’re taking a look at toy deals that could help liven up your travels (and give you a break from the little ones for a moment or two.) Here are some of our favorite items we’ve found up for sale:

Bose Build-It-Yourself Bluetooth Headphones for Kids

It’s no secret we love our Bose QuietComfort headphones, which is why we were excited to see Amazon has a version for the little ones on sale. These headphones, however, are a two-for-one when it comes to entertaining your kids. Not only will they provide some high quality audio, but your kid will have the opportunity to work their mind muscles by building the headphones themselves.

Shifu Orboot Augmented Reality Globe

Both a toy and a educational tool, the Shifu Orboot Reality Globe uses interactive technology to get kids familiar with the world through games and activities. It even comes with a mini passport, so your kids can catch the travel bug early.

Hatchimals/Paw Patrol (and a Wide Array of Various Lightweight Toys)

Both Hatchimals and Paw Patrol toys are small, mobile and trendy among kids. These toys provide easy entertainment for kids with no wires, batteries or hassle.

Mini Drone

Now, during your travels, you can get those high definition aerial shots you’ve always dreamed of. Equipped with a 720 HD camera, auto hovering, auto hovering and a long-lasting battery, this mini-copter drone could provide fun for both your kid and yourself.
