After the holidays, you were probably hoping that your kid's massive toy collection would keep him entertained for a little while, at least. But that was wishful thinking, wasn't it? Because now that a couple of months have passed, all those must-have items are probably either lying buried at the bottom of a toy bin or broken under the bed, and your kid is bored again. Sigh. Lucky for you, Toys "R" Us is having a huge Presidents Day sale: From Friday, February 16 through Saturday, February 24, the megastore is offering 50 percent off mix & match items in-store and online on tons of your favorite brands. So what are some of the best buys?

There's lots and lots of stuff on sale. In fact, the entire list of participating brands is as follows: NERF, Barbie, Imaginext, Crayola, Star Wars, Disney, Disney Princess, PAW Patrol, Thomas & Friends, Hot Wheels, Melissa & Doug, Marvel, Play-Doh, PJ Masks, Disney Pixar Cars, My Little Pony, Pokemon, Num Noms, Monster Jam, Power Rangers, Mega Bloks, Bayblade, Fast Lane, and Anki Overdrive.

1Star Wars X-Wing & Poe
Got a Star Wars fan in the house? (Honestly, is there even a house in existence that doesn't have at least one?) This is an essential addition to your no doubt already well-stocked cast of characters, and this product itself is already marked down from it's original $50 price tag.
2Paw Patrol Playset
If after reading the words "Paw Patrol" you immediately got the show's theme song stuck in you head, then you probably need this playset in your life. Skye & Everest to the rescue!
6Thomas & Friends Tent
Why do kids love to play in small, confined spaces (i.e., cardboard boxes) so much? Nobody knows for sure, but it's a pretty safe that they're gonna love this tent — not only is it a small, confined space, it's a small, confined space that looks like Thomas the Tank Engine. Score!
7'My Little Pony' The Movie Pack
Featuring royal ponies Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, and Princess Cadance, this set guarantees hours of pretend play. Especially considering you most likely already have a full stable of ponies at home just waiting for new friends.
8PJ Masks Playset
9Disney Princess Play 'n Carry Set
This adorable tiny castle set is the kind of thing that makes you want to magically shrink when you're a kid because it just looks so cool in there! And let's not forget, portability is always a plus.
Disney Pixar 'Cars 3' Gift Set
The kind of "every kid will love this" toy you might want to just pick up and hide in the closet in case of an unexpected birthday party, this set includes Lightning McQueen, Doctor Damage, Jackson Storm, Smokey, Mater, Miss Fritter, Bobby Swift and Junior Moon.
