Groupon Has Summer Toys at Super Low Prices & Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Us?

We’re actually a little annoyed we almost paid full price for these

Alright, if you knew about this, you’re way ahead of us. And we sort of pride ourselves on being on top of the whole “ways to save money” thing. But, even though we’re slightly embarrassed that we’re just now finding out, we’re going to make sure no one else misses it. Did you know Groupon—the site we thought was just really good discounts on restaurants and waterparks—has a ton of summer toys? Oh, and that those summer toys are priced crazy low? We’ll give you a minute to let that soak in. It’s possible we immediately started texting our mom friends when we found out, demanding to find out who was in on this and didn’t tell us. It isn’t like we aren’t perusing Groupon a few times a week. Maybe we were just really distracted by great deals on massages.

The point is, it’s the second week of summer and we’re already hearing our least-favorite phrase: “I’m bored.” So if your kids are basically staring at you until you entertain them somehow, we’ve got you. These summer toys are the answer to our cabin fever prayers. And sure. We kinda wish we’d known about Groupon rocking the boredom-buster game before now. But now that we do, it’ll be our first stop. Seriously. Wait till you see these.
