    Thought I'd won this annual holiday treasure hunt this year when I got the Barbie Camper for DD#3 on T'givng weekend. But then, DS#1 emails a link for this great Lego clock - in green. "It's all I want mom". [​IMG]

    He didn't have a "list", just said, "You know, the ususal" which means, spend all his budget on Bionicle Legos. So, the fact that he WANTS something specific, and emailed to tell me so, is a suprise, and makes me want to suprise him with it.

    So, I've been looking online for over a week, I'm on the phone now with Toys R Us, hoping they have one and will hold it for the day. An hour's drive up to Indianapolis - yeah, just what I wanted to do tonight NOT!

    Make me feel better, tell me I'm not alone in this annual treasure hunt! What are you still looking for with less than a week to go??????

    Yeah, it's like the small blue one you posted - but he wants green. DigiBlue & Toys R Us are sold out online, have been for weeks in the green color. Amazon has them and Ebay, but at much higher prices, plus shipping. I'm not desperate enough to over pay and pay shipping too, yet [​IMG]

    Will try the Toys R Us store in Indy tonight, the web shows they have some in stock. Maybe I can stop at a cool place for dinner, someplace we don't have in our smaller town [​IMG]

    as far as zhu zhu pets go, they are robotic hamsters that my girls are DYING for. I'm going to wait until January, when the craze dies down... crazy!

    I have gotten an email from toys r us daily saying "Zhuzhu pets arriving in every store every day" Plus.....i was on kmart.com yesterday and they have them available in there stores also. You have to check their site to see which stores, but there was a bunch listed.

    My daughter had a robotic hamster thing years ago. She tried to make it 'run' through her hair and we had to cut it out! [​IMG] She lost a huge chunk of hair!
