iRobot gutter-cleaning robot ($199.99, was $299.99)


If you’re a homeowner with barely any handyman skills, then you might want to check out iRobot’s gutter-cleaning robot, the Looj.

If you have an Instant Pot—and you should, because they’re great—you can upgrade with this sous vide, meaning you’ll soon be using hot water to cook meat, eggs, and whatever else your culinary heart desires. This item would also make a great Christmas gift, because it’s never too early to start stockpiling those.


Jarts lawn darts ($16.34, was $23)


Nothing will ever be as great—or as dangerous—as the old metal Jarts, which were essentially deadly javelins kids played with. These Poof Jarts will have to do, though.

Monster High dolls and playsets ($8.99 and up)


Another of Amazon’s deals of the day centers around Monster High, a series created by Mattel for girls who were into Barbies in theory, but who just wanted something a little more macabre. With more than 30 items up for sale related to Monster High today, Amazon is really doubling down on Halloween fever. If you—or your kid, hopefully—are into Monster High, go check out the sale and pick up your very own Frankie Stein, Draculaura, or Lagoona Blue.
