“Unlike most toy catalogs, the Toys R Us holiday book actually features some sweet discounts,” BfAds.net said. “They may not be as hot as Black Friday prices, but you won’t be wasting your money if you shop for these items.”

Prices are valid from Oct. 27 to Nov. 19, according to BfAds.net.

The Black Friday website said some of the best deals in the catalog include:

Fisher-Price Think & Learn Code-A-Pillar for $38.99.

VTech Go! Go! Smart Friends Enchanted Princess Palace for $39.99.

Toys R Us last month released its hot toy list for the 2016 season. Friday’s Toys R Us catalog release comes a day after Amazon announced its top toy picks for 2016.
