    Amazon has this LEGO Star Wars Freeco Speeder for just $14.99, down from $24.99. It’s a ground speeder used to get around an ice planet in an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon. Keep in mind that Amazon’s prices fluctuate all the time so grab this now if you’re interested.

    The Star Wars Walkie Talkie set is on steep discount at $4.99 (down from a list price of $21.99).

    Also on steep discount: the Play-Doh Backpack at $5.39, down from a list price of $17.99.

    If you (or your child) have a Nintendo DS Lite, you can pick up a set of 4 extra styluses for just $2.30. This would make a great stocking stuffer or filler item if you need to get to $25 for free super saver shipping.

    Finally, Amazon has one of my favorite childhood board games, Othello on sale for just $4.99. I’m thinking of picking up a couple to keep on hand as birthday gifts.
