I don’t do the whole Black Friday thing, I mean the part where people are busting down doors at 4 a.m. I have better things to do spending time in dreamland. I feel pretty strongly about making employees get up in the middle of the night to open stores for people to buy stuff. I did go to KB Toys late in the afternoon and strolled through Walmart later in the day.
I got a couple of gifts for the kids:
Care Bears anniversary bear with Swaroski crystals and DVD for $16
Jam Pack Jam $15
Little Pet Shop Playset $15
Connect Four Travel Game $5
Matchbox Travel Board and Cars $7
I went by Toys R Us today but was VERY disappointed in the sales, I saw a flyer that said Friday and Saturday and they gave me the run around that the sets that were on sale (6) sold out within 2 hours, like before I got out of bed. Conveniently they were out of flyers up front and didn’t even have a review copy, they did try to direct me to one that is on the back desk who knows where. She made sure to remind me that it was a STORE copy… like I wanted it as a collector’s item or something.
I also got a gorgeous Corolle doll a while ago for $6 from a store going out of business. For boy2001 some kind of Thomas the Tank set, I forget which one but it was $20 instead of $60 because the box was damaged. Thomas the Tank and Brio have been a really good investment for us, boy2001 still gets it out in between Lego creations.
So the only thing I want to get is two humongo lego sets for boy2001 and some little things for girl2006 so she will have something to open too.
