Toys"R"Us offers the Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks for $7.99. Coupon code "FRIEND15" drops it to $6.79. Opt for in-store pickup to dodge the $5.99 shipping charge. That's the lowest price we could find by $1, although we saw it for a buck less in December. It features a bucket with shape-sorting lid and 10 blocks.

A close price: Walmart has it for $6.99 with free in-store pickup.
