Toys R Us joins Walmart, Target, and Best Buy in opening Thanksgiving afternoon in 2017. If you had been hoping they would follow the lead of Nordstrom and REI and hold off on a Thursday opening, you'll no doubt be disappointed.
But if you don't mind skipping the pumpkin pie, early shoppers will find big savings on Lego, Barbie, and Disney toys, among other things.
For gamers, Sony's PS4 Slim will be marked down to $199, matching the Black Friday price at other big retailers. The Xbox One Slim will sell for $189 (though you may find a better bundled deal at Walmart or Best Buy).
Interestingly, Toys R Us is not saying much about Hatchimals on Black Friday. Last year's hardest-to-find toy is expected to again be red hot, with the new Hatchimal twins, but don't expect a Black Friday deal on them.
