You can buy all of the Play-Doh your heart desires today during this Play-Doh and Playskool Toys Gold Box. A 24-pack is only $17 right now. I’m not going to tell you not to eat it since you’re adult. But it’s no wonder why kids want to eat Play-Doh when Hasbro sells toys like Kitchen Creations Magical Oven. Just look at that pie!

PC games demand a lot more from your monitor than the typical spreadsheet app. Which means even lower-end monitors can still be pretty great. This 23.6″ monitor from Dell is only $80 from eBay today, and comes with a 1920 x 1080 LED panel and 2ms response time. The one major downside is that it’s limited to 60Hz, which is adequate but not quite the buttery smooth upgrade you can get from a 144Hz monitor. Still, for its price it’s a solid display.

It’s back! Right now, eBay’s selling Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield for $48. I’ve spent 30 hours on Pokemon Sword, and I can tell you that it’s the Pokemon game I’ve been waiting years for. And this the best deal we’ve seen on these two recently released Nintendo Switch games.

Remember that fancy-ass Funko! Pop Deluxe: Star Wars – Millennium Falcon? It was originally listed for preorder back in June and finally was shipped out in October (on Carrie Fisher’s birthday). Well, now, just in time for all of your Christmas shopping, it is marked down to $52 on Amazon. This is the cheapest the Falcon has ever been. And okay, it is probably not as cute as Baby Yoda, but close enough.

If you suddenly find yourself in need of extra controllers for your Super Smash Bros. parties (like I do, every other Saturday), PowerA’s Enhanced wireless controller is down to $29 on Amazon right now, an all-time low. It’s laid out exactly like my Pro controller, but with a few twists.

For one, it has red accents, but it also has a couple customizable buttons on the grip and uses AA batteries, in lieu of the internal battery of the Pro.

Today’s deal is the lowest price we’ve seen, or about $17 off the going rate.

Amazon is running a deal through December 4th on Kindle eBooks. If you spend $20 in Amazon’s digital eBook store, you can get a $5 credit right back.

VR is usually a pretty expensive affair, but with recent standalone headsets, it’s started to get more accessible. One of the better options, if you don’t want to spend a ton of money, is the Oculus Go. It doesn’t require any external computers, and best of all Amazon is selling them for $149 right now, cheaper than we’ve ever seen them.

The Nintendo Switch doesn’t support pairing wireless headphones directly for technical reasons. To compensate, you can buy adapters like this HomeSpot transmitter for $30 or this GuliKit Route Air Bluetooth adapter for $24. These plug into the USB-C port on the bottom of your Switch and can then pair with any Bluetooth headphones, giving you wire-free audio no matter where you take your games.

The Outer Worlds has barely been out for a month but it’s already left a lasting impression. It’s mix of Fallout-style frontier survival with corporate satire creates a rich world that, even if it feels a little small, still makes for a satisfying way to spend a few dozen hours. At $35 from Target, it’s just the right price to take the dive.

The story of Cuphead isn’t pretty. Gambling, deals with the devil, and the scariest of all, its learning curve. But Cuphead’s aesthetic, on the other hand, is delightful. And this construction set—frustratingly not LEGO, but still good—gives you a bit of that classic cartoon vibe in a piece you could put on your shelf.

The Nintendo Switch is better with friends, and you can add an extra player by picking up an extra set of Joy-Con. Right now, Walmart and Amazon have a few for between $60, which is a few bucks less than usual.

I’ll level with you, that’s still a lot for a game controller. But the nice thing about Joy-Con is that for certain games, each one can work independently, meaning you can have a four person Mario Kart battle with just two sets of Joy-Con.
