Costco succeeded: they put the holiday toys out early and I couldn't wait. The bag contains over 200 pieces, including lettered blocks, in tons of shapes and colors. Great because big tall towers fall without hurting innocent bystanders or making too much noise during quiet time. AND they are made out of some sort of rad antimicrobial material (swoon).
I have over three months and many trips to Costco planned (and unplanned). I don't think the playroom is big enough for my love of new toys.
