Don't forget the batteries!!!!!

There's nothing sadder than a new toy with no batteries. :no: (Can you tell it happened to me more than once as a child? LOL) If you give a gift that requires batteries, please provide them if you can!

I always have AA and AAA's, but I grabbed spares and also picked up some C's and D's at Costco. I already had a new 6 pack of 9V's because hubby and I both bought them for smoke detector time.

:yup:


We have a big bag of batteries, just waiting for presents to be opened. I forgot to write down how many of what type we needed, so I grabbed AA, AAA, C & D. Let's hope none are 9V!

I too was going to write down what batteries we needed .. but then I got to wrapping and forgot. Oops. I went out and bought some more this morning. I got a couple of 9V just in case as well, lol.

I stocked up at batteries.com and even got new watch batteries for watches that haven't worked in a while. I was worried about getting them in time, but they arrived just a few days after I ordered them. If they are any good at all, it's a real deal. We use rechargeables also but with grand kids and their friends over with toys needing batteries I didn't want my rechargeables going home with them and getting pitched when they run down.

I Store All My Batteries And Film In A Regular Refrigerator. They Will Keep For Years If Kept Cold

I got a 48 pack of AA batteries at BJ's for $9.98 plus I bought a 36 pack of AAA's at BJ's too for $5.99 I hope I don't need any C, D, or 9 volts...oh well that is what they make the local convenience stores for, so I can spend $10. for 1 battery :eek: KayakMom..thanks for the PSA...you probably saved some kids from being in tears tomorrow. Now since my DSs are college age, they can asssemble anything that needs assembly... I used to dread that :gdparanoid:

No problem!

My ds11 is old enough to assemble his own stuff and my other kids' stuff...and some of mine, lol. Between him and my hubby, I rarely have to do any assembly. I want to assemble the Pirates of the Caribbean ship, though. We've lost lots of ship parts in the past, so I'm prepared with Super Glue. ;)

God how did you do that??? I need so many batteries that they will come to $75 (regular and chargeable both).
Can you please tell me how you got $75 batteries down to $3.
