  Those looking to score a Nintendo SNES Classic haven’t exactly had good luck since when the console was announced two months ago. Walmart was the first retailer to open preorder sales for the console, but it ended up canceling all of those orders, citing a website glitch. Best Buy preorders went up in the wee hours of the morning earlier this week, but were sold out in mere minutes. Those looking to preorder the SNES Classic from Toys R Us are going to have to look elsewhere according to a tweet from the retailer. The company confirmed this week that it will not be taking online preorders... Read more...
It has been nearly two months since Nintendo released its hybrid Switch console in the United States, but it is no easier to obtain today as it was when it launched. Supply has not kept with the rabid demand for what has become Nintendo's fastest selling console ever. However, getting one is not an impossible task—you just have to known where to be, and when. That is where we come in. We received word from our contact at Toys R Us that the toy store will once again be restocking the Switch, this time in conjunction with the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a first-party title that could end up as...

Ever the elusive game console, the incredibly hard-to-obtain Nintendo Switch is prone to making surprise appearances every now and then. That was the case two weeks ago when Toys R Us announced it would have a limited number of Switch units available on Saturday, March 25 when the doors opened at 9 AM. Well, if you overslept that day or otherwise missed out on your shot to snag a Switch, Toys R Us is giving you a mulligan—Toys R Us tells HotHardware that it will again have a limited inventory of Switch consoles available this weekend. This time around Toys R Us will sell the hard-to-find consoles... Read more...
If you have been hunting for a Nintendo Switch, you might as well go out looking for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster while you're at it. The hybrid console has proven just as elusive. However, it does actually exist and with a little luck (and inside information), it's not impossible to find. To that end, we just received word from Toys R Us that its brick-and-mortar locations will be replenished with fresh stock this Saturday, March 25. Zelda fans rejoice! That does not mean you can mosey on over to your local Toys R Us at your leisure this weekend and get your hands on a Switch. This is a highly... Read more...
The NES Classic Edition game console is this year's Tickle Me Elmo, only it's not just kids who have it on their wish lists, it's adults too. And just like the Sesame Street doll, Nintendo's retro-themed miniature game console is sold out everywhere, save for second-hand sellers who have gone and jacked up the price on places such as eBay and Craigslist. If you really want to grab one in time for Christmas, you can pay a grossly inflated price, or you can try your chance at Toys R Us tomorrow. Toys R Us is kicking off its Christmas sale bonanza on Sunday. It's a week long event featuring an assortment... Read more...
Breaking Bad's Walter White had a knack for evading authorities and, on several occasions, certain death through the show's five seasons. But of all the adversaries he faced off against, his toughest opponent yet might turn out to be a mom from Florida. Otherwise known as Susan Schrivjer, this pissed off mother is making headlines for launching a Change.org petition demanding that Toys R Us remove its Breaking Bad doll collection. The sight of Walter White transformed into Heisenberg in doll form selling for $17.99 (marked down to $13.99) on Toys R Us's website was too much for Schrivjer to bear.... Read more...
Android tablet prices have fallen considerably in the past year, and we're at the point where a low price tag doesn't automatically denote a crappy slate. Such is the case with the Tabeo e2, a new 8-inch tablet designed for kids that costs just $150. Toys R Us is taking pre-orders on the device right now and will start shipping out orders next month. The Tabeo e2 will be available exclusively at Toys R Us stores and online at Tabeo's website in October. There are three color options to choose from: blue, pink, and silver. Underneath the colorful hood is a dual-core 1.0GHz processor with a quad-core... Read more...
It looks as though Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One console may get a head start in the market place compared to Sony's competing PlayStation 4, at least at Toys R Us. The mega toy chain is kind of all over the place with its listings, however the earliest ship date spotted for the Xbox One is November 29, 2013, well in time to sneak it under the Christmas tree (if you celebrate the holiday). Meanwhile, the earliest listing for the PS4 at Toys R Us had the next generation console shipping two weeks later on December 13th, which is still in time for Christmas though cutting it awfully close if you...

Are the kids hogging your iPad so they can play Angry Birds? Don’t assert your parental authority and take the tablet back: by the kids their own. Toys R Us announced its own tablet, the Tabeo, which has the apps that your kids love, but also includes some child-safety features. And, should the Tabeo get dropped, kicked, or both, it will only set you back $149.99. That’s not chump change, we know, but it’s not iPad money, either. The Tabeo is a real tablet, with real specs. The device has a 7-inch display at 800 x 480 pixels and runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)... Read more...
