So my daughters are into Toy Story lately. No, scratch that… they love watching the animations and in fact, my eldest daughter has even pointed out a few characters for us: my husband and I are Mr & Mrs Potato Head (because they are the only couple aside from Barbie and Ken, and she knew we are too old for that, ha!), my youngest one the space alien (the reason given was, she too makes that little ‘Oooh’ sound occasionally), and as for herself she wants to be Jessie just because she thinks she is cool. My husband and I always have a good laugh whenever we watch the DVDs, especially when the three space aliens begin to make that ‘Oooh’ sound, or even on scenes where Mr Potato Head being get squashed or bullied and our two-year-old would squeal with delight and yelled, “Daddy!”.

Anyways, that enthusiasm set our goal for searching the three space aliens toys because all of us think they are the most adorable and yes, the hardest to find in stores. Can you imagine our thrill when we found these three little guys in a box at a shopping mall last Friday and I just grabbed the box without first looking at the price. When that excitement died down a little, I then took a peek at the price tag and was happy to note that it was on sale (costs S$65 and it makes me wonder what the original price was) so of course we bought it. And thereafter, I saw another box that piqued my interest and grabbed that box too (see picture below - a pop up tent that can accommodate two kids, or one adult if you are the petite size).


And finally, not wanting to end this post without a book-related issue, I thought I’d share with you some of the books I bought along the trip:

Sweep Vol I and III by Cate Tiernan (couldn’t find Vol II as it was out of stock)
The Redeemer by Jo Nesbo
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer (Nightshade Series #2)

I also picked up the latest copy of Entertainment Weekly after seeing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on the cover and I wonder what is in store with the first part of Breaking Dawn, which is to be released in November.

So there you go on my shopping trip last Friday. Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

    Those little aliens are so cute. Right before I had the baby Scott and I watched all of the Toy Story movies again--love them so much! Think my favorite is Wall-E though. Love that little guy!

    I'm sure your girls will have a blast playing in that tent!!

    Oh, I LOVE Toy Story. I was 8 when the first film came out and 10 when the second did. As soon as Toy Story 3 came out last year, I was straight to the cinema. :D And everyone in the audience was my age! Ha! Reliving their childhood.

    Oh, those toys are by no means cheap. The Woody and Buzz toys are tres tres expensive. And those are just the normal ones without the crazy gadgets!
