What happened to the cute baby dolls they use to have back in the day? What's going on with the big alien looking eyes that don't close or anything? They just stare at you now and follow you with their "eyes"...scary....I wouldn't want to wake up in the middle of the night and see that staring back at me...
I was out looking for one for a 4 yr old and was utterly surprised by the lack of choices...either they are too "old" for her like those overpriced Madame Alexander dolls (I know they are collectible but still), I just don't like them (attention Barbie), or they don't do anything special (hello Cabbage Patch)...and I won't even talk about the price(seriously, the one in the picture is $40 and it doesn't even have hair)!!!
Needless to say, I didn't buy her one...I will have to think of a plan B...probably go find something educational but all kids need at least one toy that lets them just be a kid and do silly stuff...it helps with their imagination and creativity...so tomorrow after the beauty shop, I will go get the remaining gifts I need and come home and start wrapping them up...
But I am very proud that I haven't bought anything that wasn't on my list...I have gone into the stores, got what I needed and got out...no extra lingering!!
