In order to use it, an Osmo Base for use on a compatible iPad or Fire Tablet is required.
Catan (Settlers of Catan)
One of the most popular and well-known strategy games of the last decade, Catan — formerly known as Settlers of Catan — isn’t officially on sale right now on Amazon, but its current list price is pretty close to previous deal prices we’ve seen for the title.
Catan is a game of building and trading, with a healthy dash of luck mixed in. If you haven’t played it yet, you’re really missing out. (That’s not just our opinion: Amazon reviewers rate Catan 4.8 stars out of 5.)
L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G Movie Magic Studios
This is another toy that’s not on sale right now on Amazon, but is being offered at a really good price — especially when you consider how scarce it was during Christmas 2021.
The O.M.G Movie Magic Studios provides more than 70 unboxing experiences, including 12 dolls that kids can shoot home movies with. The box even transforms into a movie set.
UPS pullback toy truck
What little kid doesn’t love the excitement of a delivery truck? This officially licensed UPS toy truck measures 5.5-inches long and 2.5-inches high. It’s not currently on sale, but its $19 asking price is pretty close to previous deal prices we’ve seen for this item.
