Not only can ordering toys online make shopping quicker and easier, it's also a trove of information.

Amy Barseghian, mother and blogger at mommy-mentor.com, recommends filling up your Amazon cart with toys — but waiting to actually buy them. If an item in your cart gets cheaper, Amazon will send you an alert.
