Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the new wave of restrictions coming because of it, Black Friday 2020 will be like no other. But make no mistake, there will be a Black Friday in 2020 -- and there will be Black Friday deals at Walmart. 

All selections of this Walmart Black Friday 2020 guide have been culled from Walmart.com's holiday deals section and separated into three shopping categories: home, kids and gadgets. Read on for the deals. And while batteries aren't included, info on the Baby Yoda pillow is (All prices current as of publication).

If you've been eying the iRobot Roomba i3+ (3550) from afar, this Walmart deal may finally get you in the same room with the robot vacuum: Walmart has marked down the $599 machine to $399. According to the manufacturer, the i3+ (3550) thinks of just about everything. It cleans, it cleans itself and it "learn[s] your habits to offer up personalized schedules." Not a bad robot helper to have around the home office. 

Ninja Foodi AG300 indoor grill … and more!

The Ninja Foodi AG300 is like a multitasking Transformers toy for a grownup foodie. It grills, air crisps, bakes and roasts. According to its manufacturer, it features a 10-by-10-inch grill grate, a six-quart, nonstick cooking pot (suitable for a three-pound roast) and a four-quart crisper basket. Walmart usually sells the cooker for $199, but it's now going for $169.

If you're cooking a lot at home these days (as many Americans are during the pandemic), or if you're vowing to cut back on your frozen-pizza routine, then this Walmart deal on a 6.5-quart Dutch oven by Tramontina might whet your appetite. Regularly priced at $59.97, Walmart now lists it for $39.98. The enamel-coated, cast-iron heavy pot can be used on your stovetop or in your oven (for cooking temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit).     

Baby Yoda Pillow Buddy

A year after "The Mandalorian" premiered on streaming service Disney Plus and made Baby Yoda a pop-culture phenom, there's a decent chance you'll be able to spend the 2020 winter break with a plush form of the character. (During the 2019 holiday season, as you may recall, Baby Yoda merch was only available for preorders.) 

The Baby Yoda Pillow Buddy is a 20-inch by 11-inch, all-polyester pillow suitable for cuddling, or de-stressing. If you hunt around, you'll see it going for around $20. Target has it at $12.99, but Walmart beats even that: It's got it priced at $12.96. 

Mr. Coffee 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker

If 2020 has upended your morning routine and broken you of the coffeehouse habit, then this one's for you — especially if you're as thirsty for a bargain as for a cup of joe. Walmart has the Mr. Coffee 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker, regularly priced at an already slim $24.94, at a downright skinny $19.96. The machine features auto shut-off, auto pause and a brew selector so that you don't get your coffee too strong (unless, that is, coffeehouses trained you otherwise).   

Kids 

Barbie Estate 3-in-1 Dreamcamper

Are your child's Barbie dolls looking to hit the open road, or the kitchen floor, whichever the case may be? Then you might want to consider this Walmart deal on the Barbie 3-in-1 Dreamcamper. Marked down nearly $20, to $79, this versatile set of toy wheels can be converted into a toy pickup truck or used as action-figure housing — it also comes with a toy canoe and pool. That's a lot of bang for the Barbie buck. (Note: Barbie dolls sold separately.)  

LEGO Classic Bricks and Animals

If you or your child are looking for an alternative to remote learning, then here's a hands-on option: The LEGO Classic Bricks and Animals collection features 1500 LEGO pieces, 10 buildable animal schemes and virtually endless possibilities: Priced at $30 (discounted from $50), this Walmart deal really adds up. This toy is recommended for ages 4 and older.  

The Animal

The Walmart deal on The Animal is another one that'll help you stretch your dollar. The Animal is a toy 4x4 truck that turns into a climbing monster when its retractable tire claws are deployed. It turns into a towing-tugging monster when the tow strap is attached to its front or back. It even knows how to unbox itself — it'll literally bust out of its toy crate. All this action can be had for the Walmart rollback price of $29.97.   

KidKraft Forestview II Wooden Playhouse

If your kids are feeling cooped up, then maybe they need their own space. This cozy-looking playhouse from KidKraft is one way to go. According to its manufacturer, the playhouse is sold exclusively through Walmart. So, on the downside, if you're in love with its 5-foot-6 by 4-foot-2 floor size, you don't have a lot of buying options. On the upside, Walmart is offering KidKraft's wooden Forestview II for $239, down from $449. The tiny house comes with a bench and two planter boxes.  

Hot Wheels Power Shift Raceway set

Whether it's the holiday season, a birthday or a plain old day of the week, you really can't go wrong with Hot Wheels. Even a single Hot Wheel toy car can keep a wheel-obsessed tyke entertained. The Power Shift Raceway set comes with five cars and a lot of action possibilities. This Walmart deal will make you a hero for less than 25 bucks — $24.88, to be precise.
