On Black Friday, big box stores open early to sell massive amounts of TVs, toys and more, all at huge discounts. Some stores, meanwhile, including Amazon, put far weirder items on sale for Black Friday.

Case in point: Like Nic Cage himself, this throw pillow ($29.99) is the gift that keeps on giving. Society 6 offered a 25 percent discount on it for Black Friday in 2017.
One of the coolest and smartest gifts on this list, the app-controlled littleBits Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit teaches kids coding. Amazon offered it for $79.99 last year on Black Friday, but you can pick one up today for just $58.36.
One of Think Geek's Black Friday 2014 deals, this 30-by-60-inch throw rug will look just as good by your living room fireplace as it would in a lodge on Hoth.
The rug is no longer available through Think Geek, but we did spot it for $139.99 on Amazon.
Though not technically offered during Black Friday, this 2013 holiday deal is just too bizarre not to mention. Daily deals site tanga.com offered a free pile of reindeer poop (with a 30-day warranty) on a first come, first served basis.
Offered at a discount by Think Geek for Black Friday 2017, this 212-piece robot kit really does twerk when you insert two AAA batteries. It's no longer on discount, but you can still pick one up at Think Geek for $24.99.
The 3Doodler 3D Pen comes with thin strands of plastic filament that can be extruded into three-dimensional shapes.
You can buy a Star Trek-branded version with 75 plastic strands today for as little as $23.28 on Amazon -- less than a third of the price it was offered at during Black Friday 2016!
Want to embrace your inner wizard? This LED-lined hoodie, a Think Geek Black Friday 2017 offering, casts simulated spells, complete with sounds... but only if you make the correct hand motions.
It's still available on Think Geek, now for $79.99.
Some people make gingerbread men for the holidays. But with this set of six Star Wars cookie cutters, offered by Think Geek for $12.99 during Black Friday 2017, you can make gingerbread Vaders, Fetts, Yodas and more.
They're currently available on Think Geek for just $9.99, proving that it sometimes pays to miss out on a Black Friday deal.
Vodka is pretty odorless, so we're not sure exactly what this thing -- one of Amazon's Black Friday 2017 deals -- smells like. But if you'd like to find out for yourself, you can pick up this Jonathan Adler candle for $42.00 on Amazon.
Our favorite Black Friday 2012 deal is this "simulated science kit" from Think Geek. Hook the PotatOS unit to any potato using the included pins and it'll start flinging insults at you.
Sadly, it's no longer available for sale.
