The Toys R Us Big Toy Book, whose arrival ranked right up there with Santa and the Easter Bunny when I was a kid, is set to arrive at homes across the country this weekend.

WalletPop had a chance to get a sneak peak at some of the hottest deals in the book (and Toys R Us's own break-down of the hottest toys and trends) and narrowed it down to what we think will be the best bang for your buck. Overall, the Big Toy Book offers more than $5,000 in savings on toys of all prices and categories.

Some highlights:
  • $10 gift card with any $75 purchase
  • $25 iTunes Gift card with purchase of an Apple iPod Touch
  • Free life-size Barbie Dress with $40 Barbie purchase
  • High School Musical 3 Cheerleader outfit with $40 High School Musical purchase
  • $20 off Circus Ring from Playmobil or HOT WHEELS Trick Tracks Ultimate Stunt World
  • 25% off of Select Pink board games from Hasbro and select Hannah Montana games
  • Over 25% off of ALL Tag Reading Books from LeapFrog

    Toys R Us

The list of deals goes on including one that tempts even a "grown up" like me; a free 10" Transformers Millennium Falcon with $99 purchase of Star Wars products. It looks like you can double dip to get even better deals when you spend over $75, by also picking up the $10 Toys R Us gift card, netting you a $35 savings on an iPod Touch.

If you combine these deals with the Hot Toy Trends that Toys R Us research announced yesterday you should be ready to get your Holiday shopping wrapped up before the crowds hit the stores next month. If you don't find a Toys R Us Big Toy Book in your mailbox this weekend it can also be found in stores and many local newspapers.

We'll be sure to keep you up to date on all of the best ways to get the most for your dollar. Stay tuned for more holiday deals in every category.
