Here's a deal being sold outside the Bay Area - but it's for an online store, so it's easy to cash in anywhere. Buy a Groupon for $20 and get $50 worth of toys at Brighter Beginnings, including puzzles, craft kits, cars/trains/vehicles, musical toys, etc. Many are educational. Stock up that gift bin for upcoming birthday parties, or get ready for the holidays!
You can buy one for yourself, and one for someone else as a gift. Shipping is free if you spend more than $75. It's valid until May, 2011.
Buy it here. It's the North Jersey site of Groupon.
