Power Up Your Star Wars Toys This Holiday With Duracell (Giveaway)

11:09 AM

The past few years, I have really learned quite a few lessons about the proper way to gift electronic toys for the holidays. For one, I have stayed up very late (almost until 3am) to be sure that all the toys are free of those wires and tapes that are holding the toys in the packaging. I have also learned (after a few tearful holidays) that you should always put batteries in BEFORE gifting to the children. Nothing is more disappointing, in my opinion, than a child not understanding why his brand new gadget is lifeless. The worst thing a gift giver can do is forget the batteries!



Duracell is our battery of choice for all those fun gifts that my 5 boys will be getting this holiday season. We took a test drive of some of the new Star Wars Revenge of the Sith Luke Skywalker Electronic Light Sabers that are available now at Toys R Us, and I was sure to put batteries inside them before giving them to my sons.








This led to lots of smiles and hours of outside play. We had had an especially tough week with the whole family rushing to get our house painted. A nice break from all the work was just what they needed, and the fresh Duracell batteries ensured days of play with their new toys!




Now, it's even easier than ever to be sure you've got the holidays covered with fresh batteries! Parents shopping for the hottest Star Wars Gear at Toys R Us can find a money saving offer inside their Sunday papers on November 22nd. Coupons good for $3 OFF when you buy any 2 packages of Duracell batteries (AA/AAA 16pk, D/C 4pk, 9V 2pk or larger, Quantum AA/AAA 6pk, D/C 3pk or larger) should help you save big!

Another coupon will be available on December 13, where you'll find a $1 OFF coupon when you buy one package of Duracell Coppertop and Quantum!

Stock up on those Duracell Coppertop batteries now! You'll likely need them for the busy holiday gifting sessions ahead!



Wanna Win? We are giving one lucky reader a fabulous prize pack so that you can shop for your kids this holiday!  The winner will receive a $100 Toys“R”Us gift card and AAA Duracell batteries! To be entered to win, please use the form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. You have  until November 27th at 11:59 pm EST to get your entries in!
