I like to start my Christmas shopping early and kind of spread the cost and job of actually shopping out a bit.
Last week I pre-ordered and paid for two toys that Sarah really want for Christmas. I just had a feeling they might be really popular and I did not want to end up in the situation when I could not find or afford the must have toy of the year.
So I pre-ordered these things called ZhuZhu Pets Hamsters, essentially they are animatronic lifelike hamsters.
Yesterday they officially were for sale.
Oh boy am I glad I did think ahead! Today the toys I ordered for $24.99 and $29.99 respectively are $129.98 and $300!!! Crazy! One is this set and another this set, at Amazon.com.
Phew. Good thinking, no I don't have to explain that Santa is in a recession and can't bring her these critters... If I could only be a psychic like this every year, that would be great!
