If you’re into the land of plenty that is Costco, you already know: It’s truly an untapped wonderland for necessities and not-so-necessary items galore. While some of us always thought of it as a place to stock up on groceries and home items, the true loyalists know about all the other essentials and goodies its shelves hold, including toys.
Whether your kid has a birthday coming up, or you’re just in the market for a treat (bribe?) for your little one, Costco can be a great way to sneak in that bit of toy shopping while doing…all the other errands that fill your life. Why not pick up a new LEGO set while grabbing toilet paper and chicken? Stock up on dish soap and a water table! The only thing we don’t recommend? Trying to buy Costco’s giant plush bear at the same time as your groceries. Unless an 18-wheeler is your typical ride, that is. (Online shopping solves SO many problems.)
Ahead are our top picks for toys at Costco. And if you haven’t already signed up for a Costco membership, what are you waiting for?
