Yup, it arrived UPS. :)
And its in a white box inside the brown box. So I opened up the white box
and its a cylinder type of container.. so I just wrapped it like that (instead of the white box). I figure DS would give a bigger reaction that way. :)

Oh SOOOO worth it IMO


Oh yeah mine just came to.Just like urs.Of course i opened it.lol Much bigger than i though.Oh the boys are going to love these.Yep well worth $60 IMO to
Ohhh another day another deal!!!

I am kicking myself for not getting DD this when it was $5.99 and the crawling pinkie pie too! They are too cute!


I got my dd3 this one last year also for 5.99. Gave it to her for her 3rd B-day. I also think that these things are very adorable!! Wouldn't you know my dd has only played with it one day - on her B-Day!! It has been laying in the toy box ever since. I mean she has not picked this thing once to play with it. I guess you just never know with little ones what will be a success and what will be a bust.

I have two items in my cart that I'm trying to make the decision if I should purchase now or wait. They have held steady at around 60% off and just went down an additional $2 a few hours ago. I just know that as soon as I buy them now they'll drop lower. If I don't buy them, by morning they'll probably jump to full price or near it.

I bought this last year, I think for $9.00 on Amazon (and I didn't even do a price adjustment... didn't know about them really-haha) and my DD doesn't touch this toy... it's really cute though and my 4 year old neice loves hers... Kids are fickle when it comes to toys, that's for sure! :P

I would buy. 60% is pretty good. I don't think things went lower than 60% this entire sale (maybe just a few).
The way I remmember it from last year, I found the Toy sale a bit late and couldn't get as many deals as I was hoping to. I was thinking just before Christmas Amazon will drop their prices but it never happened. I also thought it would drop prices after Christmas but that didn't happen either. They just had some toys at % off that hung at that price for a few month later but these were the same toys. They didn't add any new ones. All in all I realized the best prices they ever have is few weeks before Christmas to up to one week before Christmas. As soon as Super Saving Shipping for Christmas deadline runs out there are no more sales.

Yeh you're prob. right I think it was $9 not $6. I also got that Superman toy with a microphone for $9 and my ds was too small and wouldn't really play with it but now that he's 18 month he just started dragging him around everywhere. It's so cute! He def. gets more use out of toys than my dd3.

Well, I caved last night right before I went to bed. I bought the items, one red nextsport fuzion electron scooter for $35.49 and one blue nextsport fuzion electron scooter for $36.56

Neither went up or down during the night. :)

if you have a radio shack nearby they have the kidizoom cameras for 39.99. probably the best "kids" camera out there. my kids LOVE that they can also video record and play games with them. radio shack also carries a very nice green color i haven't seen anywhere else. you can check local availability on their website.

Has anybody used the Martian Matter? It is $9.99 and I can't decide if it is something I should grab for my 6 year old. Is it just messy junk? or something fun? :confused:

I don't have a clue what it is or what it does. But I ordered it for my 9 yr old son when it was $8.99.

I haven't used it, but I bought it. My kids (4 and now 7) have been BEGGING for it and I like that they use it up and throw it away! We get too much stuff that sits around and takes up room. They have the bug maker machine and they have a blast with it so figured this may be on the same line.


To get to the Amazon toy page, go to the last page, it will come up with the error page, go to your search bar and just change the last two digits to one number less (right now its 29) then go to the bottom and click on the > arrow at the bottom to switch pages (don't click on the 30, for some reason that doesn't work) Hope they fix that soon though, its a pain.

I just want to warn you that if you order anything frustration free packaging to check inside your box. Something told me to so this today to make sure it was all there and both my Mission Mars shuttle and Fisher price choo which they do not even have in stock anymore, were not complete! THe train is only an engine and one animal and the Mission mars shuttle was not even in there only the acessories. So I am out both items! I am so angry. I was leery about this kind of packaging as it would be easy to just repackage returns this way. I called India and the guy took forever to explain this to and he just said sorry can't do anything as these items are not in stock but please take a $5 credit and buy another item on Amazon. Umm I need these items not anything else. Sorry just blowing off steam as I now have to see if any stores even have these things in stock now. So just letting everyone know to check so you ds or dd is not dissappointed when they open there item and it is not even in there.
