Black Friday deals showcase the top toys for the holiday season

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Black Friday deals are starting to pop up all around.

And, according to the National Retail Federation, 164 million people plan to shop on Thanksgiving weekend alone. To put that in perspective, that's more than half of America.

So, make sure you know what to buy before the official kickoff to the holiday season.

Nothing gets a child more excited than opening gifts for the holidays. There's always those hot toys that seem to sell out quickly, so we're telling you about the Black Friday deals before they hit.

"We've got a trailer behind the store, getting it ready for every customer that wants a great item,” said Terry Tschoepe, general manager for Walmart at Belle Isle.

Walmart thinks they know what kids want under the tree, and it seems tech is titan this year.

"We've got a lot of the technical toys this year. We've got a lot of the drones that you can fly around, that you can have the whole headset on so you can see where you're flying. It takes pictures,” Tschoepe said.

It's the same for a remote-controlled truck with a virtual reality headset. It gives you a first-person view without actually being behind the wheel.

And, for those who want to transform into a princess, there's the Frozen sleigh for $198.

Nintendo switch is one of the latest gadgets for gamers. It's not just at Walmart. It's also available at most of the big box retailers like Best Buy, Gamestop and Target and will set you back $299.

But, what could be the most anticipated toy for the holidays - the Hatchimals. Just like last year, the hot item is expected to fly off shelves.

"Basically, it's an egg, then you pet it, and you have to take really good care of it and then it hatches out of the egg,” Tschoepe said.

But, this year, they've hatched out a bigger surprise with twins in each egg of a version, and then there's the Golden Lynx.

"It's one of a kind, endangered species,” Tschoepe said.

Walmart is rolling out their holiday helpers again. This time, they'll be color coded based on department.

"We'll have helpers out here that have a vest on, and so we have all of the colors for the different areas that you can actually find it,” Tschoepe said.

Purple for electronics, green for toys and blue for apparel to name a few. All to help millions of shoppers fill those wish lists.

This year, Walmart's Black Friday event begins with stores opening at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.

You can get the same deals online starting start at 11:01 p.m. CST - the night before Thanksgiving.
