• Toys for Tots still needs toys for needy tots


    ORLANDO, Fla. - If anyone is still on the fence about donating toys for a child in need to Toys for Tots, local toy stores have tempting savings.

    While the Eyewitness News lobby is filled with toys, there are still plenty of empty shelves at the warehouse.

    Eyewitness News took $200 to local stores to find the best deals, and didn't leave disappointed.

    The first stop was Target, where there were many buy-one-get-one-half-off deals advertised.

    Anything from Nerf guns to board games – there was even a 50 cent Hot Wheels car and two Barbie dolls for $6.

    Toys for Tots officials said big or small, every gift will mean just as much.

    "You should see the smile on (their) faces. They lit up," Chris Hoagland with Toys for Tots said.

    The checkout counter was lighting up with savings -- $122 spent, with about $60 left over.

    Next stop was Toys R Us, where the deals could be had in bins throughout the store for as little as $1 to $5.

    The final moment of truth – just $1.78 over budget and a cart full of toys. Not bad.
