Christmas is probably the one time a year that full-grown adults begin scrambling to snatch up toys in bulk. So this week, we're focusing on a few toy deals. Today's roundup is so tempting, we thought we saw Santa changing the coordinates on his sleigh GPS to take advantage of these Editors' Choice bargains — from LEGOs to a play castle.

5 LEGO MiniFigures
Price: $10 with free in-store pickup
Lowest by: $15
Is It Worth It?: You should "figure" that a great many adults will buy these LEGO figurines for both their kids and themselves, including the author of this feature (who keeps a LEGO Yoda affixed to his wallet at all times). Toys "R" Us offers a selection of LEGO MiniFigures for $2.99 to $3.49 each, but if you add 5 LEGO MiniFigures to your cart, the price drops to just $10. You can mix and match from series 3 (pictured), series 4, and series 5, but you can't select which figures you'll receive from each set. Note that you'll need to opt for in-store pickup to get this deal.
