MEGATOYS is downtown Los Angeles has been one of my favorite discounters of toys and over the years I featured Megatoys on the news. Now I am pleased to showcase them again on our Best Buys TV Show. Megatoys is a true discounter because it has a factory in China where it manufactures toys, and then Megatoys is a wholesaler, importer and distributor of toys. The company's warehouse in downtown Los Angeles is open to the public, and there are extended hours during the Christmas shopping season. The prices charged to the public are slightly above the wholesale prices charged to stores, so if you shop at Megatoys you will save substantially below retail prices. Megatoys is at 905 East 2nd Street in downtown Los Angeles. This is two blocks east of Alameda. Call them at (213) 617-1353 or go to their web site www.megatoys.com for more information. We have videos below.


Megatoys continues to bring bargain prices to consumers because of its giant, nationwide wholesale business. And again, Megatoys features the holiday classics as well as some of the new hot toys and gift items. Megatoys has the new "food truck toys" including the Ice Cream Truck and the Taco Truck with music and sound effects for only $12 each -- and these can retail for $20 at the major discount chains. Megatoys specializes in radio controlled cars at the 1/24 scale and these are priced as low as $6 each. For younger kids, there are traction trucks and cars including the two piece truck and trailer Weekend Adventure sets for only $9 each and these retail for about $15. I was very impressed to see a battery-powered race track that comes with two controllers, two cars, and two spare car bodies and more than seven and a half feet of track and this sells for $9.99.

This year, Megatoys has gift baskets and gifts appropriate for teachers such as holiday mug sets with hot chocolate or tea, and M&M gift sets that include a toy and lots of candy and a holiday mug. The M&M gift set is only $9.99 and the mug sets with the hot cocoa are priced at only $2.75 each. There are holiday bears at only $4 each.

Lots of toys and play sets for the young ladies including fashion dollars and tea sets and mini doll houses and some of these are in the range of $4 to $5 each. The Betty Fashion Dolls which are 23-inches tall and come in fashion-forward clothing are priced at only $12.99 here. And there are other playthings like a shopping cart that comes filled with toy groceries.

Finally, Dads and big brothers won't resist playing with the hopping Hummer battery-powered car, and Mom will just melt over the crawling dolls and the baby doll that makes life-like sounds, and these are all priced for under $17. And there is something else that is very important: all of the toys at Megatoys meet safety standards for kids. Our video report is coming soon.
