Dec. 8: Baby, pets, camera
Dec. 9: Beauty and personal care
Dec. 10: Electronics
Dec. 11: Kitchen
Dec. 12: Furniture lawn and garden

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.
