The absence of Toys "R" Us is definitely being felt this Black Friday. For parents and kids alike, nothing beats the memory of wandering down Toys "R" Us aisles looking for the hottest toys for holiday gifts. Naturally, the Amazons, Walmarts, and Targets of the world are chomping at the bit to fill the void, and they are definitely the place to go if you're looking for the big mainstream stuff. However, if you want to expand your options to include some really unique toys and collectibles, you might want to check out the Black Friday holiday deals we've listed below.

Again, shopping online doesn't quite offer the same experience as Toys "R" Us once did, but Entertainment Earth was one of the companies that picked up a lot of their exclusives after the liquidation. They are also one of the best places on the planet to get stuff like Funko Pops, Marvel/DC Comics/Star Wars toys, high-end collectibles, and more. Currently, their Black Friday sale features items up to 80% off and all in-stock items ship free for a limited time. You should also check out their collection of Funko Pops and bestselling in-stock items.
