The prices on toys are going up the closer it gets to Christmas. Don't know about in the store but the online price on some items are going up like crazy. I've been looking at some of my grandkids wish list and prices are not the same when I first printed them out. The Leapster Explorer is now $79.99. It went up $10 in 2 weeks time. The games for it have gone up $2. I've noticed some other things that have gone up $5-$10! It seems like a big rip-off!!

I see it more as being a case of supply and demand. People tend to hold out to the very end thinking prices will drop and that's not always the case.

It is frustrating, especially for people who are unable to buy earlier and have to wait for the week before Christmas.

The leapster explorer is available on leapfrog.com for $59.99 with free shipping and guarenteed Christmas delivery if you order today.

Meijer's website has it for $57.99, I don't know if it available in store at the same price.

Sam's club has it for $63.88, Walmart for $59 (not available online right now). I'm not sure what the pricing/availablity in store looks like, but it might be worth checking out.

Kohl's has it listed at $79.99 (not available online right now). If they have it in stock in the stores and you have any coupons this could be a deal.

I got a really good deal from target on Leapster Explorer couple of weeks ago with coupons I found. I'm just amazed at how the prices keep going up. I have been looking at the explorer for a couple of months before I bought it but never saw it at $79.99 until recently. A few things on my granddaughters wish list that I'm considering for their birthdays have gone up $10 or so and they aren't any hot popular toys! Just feel bad for ones that were maybe waiting on a Christmas bonus or something to go shopping and now some prices are so much higher!! Guess that's the "comercialized" side of Christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
