Getting caught up in the excitement of Prime Day shopping can be overwhelming. The pressure to add things to your cart because something is on sale (and you know exactly when the sale ends) is real and makes us all buy a bunch of things we don’t actually need. If there’s one thing definitely worth prioritizing on Prime Day, it’s expensive toys: big-ticket items you can hoard until the holiday season. Sure, you’re going to see tons of toy deals come October 10, but these have significant savings and are major enough to count as “the big Santa gift.”

So shop ride-ons, Barbie Townhouses, building kits, and more and save anywhere from $20 to $120 on each item.

$42 off the PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie Aircraft Carrier HQ

This mega PAW Patrol toy comes with Chase, the Mighty Pups vehicle and launchers. It measures over 2-feet long and pushing buttons throughout activates lights and sounds pulled straight from the new Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie film, which is in theaters now.

$30 off the 3-story Barbie Townhouse

It is the year of Barbie everything, so you know any type of Barbie house is going to be flying off the shelves this holiday season. This 3-story townhouse is not as big as the Dreamhouse (which is also double the price), but it’s got so much to offer. It includes tons of accessories — a swinging chair, a table and two chairs, a sofa, a coffee table, a bed, a bathtub, a towel, place settings, and a tablet — and it has a working elevator.

It’s an exclusive Amazon product, currently ranks as the third most-gifted dollhouse on Amazon, and it’s going to be up to 52% off on Prime Day, bringing it under $50.

$40 off this 2.5-ft tall Batman playset

In case you can’t tell from the image, this Batman toy is 2-and-a-half feet tall. And it’s not just a decorative piece — it’s actually a playset that moves, lights up, shoots darts, and more. The chest and mask open up to reveal a chamber where kids can continue to play with their mini Batman figure and Batcycle, which are also included. Perhaps the most surprising feature is the voice changer which will add a Batman voice filter so anything your kid says.

$42 off this Thomas the Train track set

Cranes, tracks, a bridge. This tower set is made for the kid who loves to play with trains. The tower set is over 2-and-a-half feet tall and comes with three friends from the show, Percy, Harold, and Thomas.

31% off select Power Wheels ATV ride-ons

Your kid wants a cool ride-on, but, understandably, you don’t want to play hundreds of dollars for a set of wheels. Power Wheels ATV-Ride Ons, like this DC-themed one, are 31% off for Prime Day, which shaves $88 off the original price. Select Power Wheels Jeep Wranglers are 30% off, bringing the original $349.99 price down to $244.99.

17% off the classic BRIO Railway starter pack

Stock up for the holidays or birthdays — you can’t go wrong with classic BRIO trains and tracks, and their popular starter kit is almost 20% off.

20% off this Modern KidKraft Play Kitchen

This play kitchen has a mix of industrial and rustic touches, and certain elements like the sink and stove, actually light up and makes noises. It’s big enough to allow for imaginary play, but so big that it’ll eat up an entire room. It’s great for small spaces and its modern design keeps it from being an eyesore.

31% off the GraviTrax Starter Set

Kids love marble runs, both building them and watching them in action. The GraviTrax system is a popular one that kids can keep growing and growing, and it’s designed for children 8 and up, so it’s more complex than the wooden ones you might’ve had in your household during the toddler years.

30% off select MEGA products

Assorted MEGA brick sets will be up to 40% off for Prime Day. This one comes with 1347 pieces, and includes an assortment of Pokemon to play with: Squirtle, Butterfree, Kabuto, and Rowlet.
