As the days quickly inch toward the holiday shopping season, that means one thing: It's time for parents everywhere to start frantically searching for those must-have gifts on your child's wish list or the one you created yourself and are checking twice. The good news is that, this year, for the first time ever, Amazon is introducing not one but two Prime Day sales, and this one is just in time for the holiday shopping season.

Targeted to Amazon Prime members, the first-ever Amazon Prime Early Access Sale takes place on Wednesday October 11 through Thursday October 12, giving parents the chance to rejoice at discounts on thousands of the hottest items for the holiday season, including popular toys and educational activities for kids from newborns to tweens. Fortunately, you don't need to wait until the actual sale to score amazing deals on toys and games. From soft building blocks for the littlest ones to professional-style scooters for older kids, Amazon has already started rolling out deals that will make both parents and kids happy.

You can also sign up for a free 30-day trial to buy items for less during the Early Access Sale (and now!).
