T at Toys R Us

She’s posing in front of a Sophia the First dollhouse she wanted to add to her wish list, but she’s got TWO dollhouses already and unless she got rid of the princess castle, I don’t know where we’d put it.

Holiday Shopping

November 27th, 2013

Okay, we took the kids to Toys R Us last night to pick out things for their wish lists and it may have been too late in the evening as we had some trouble focusing. I did update Tallulah’s wish list with things she picked out, though.

Sizes are updated in the sidebar.  I know Tallulah wants a new pair of red cowgirl boots (she’s outgrown hers) and I put a pair on her wish list (as well as pink, which she also asked for, though I don’t think she’ll wear as often) in a size 10, so they’ll be sure to fit for a while.  You can probably find them cheaper than the ones on the wish list — I didn’t do a lot of shopping around.  She’s not brand-conscious, so don’t feel like she wants THOSE BOOTS IN PARTICULAR.

In general, she’s into:

  • Tools.  She loves tools.  She doesn’t know that’s considered unusual or that most tool toys are meant for boys and we’re trying to keep that from her.  Anything you can find in pink or purple would be especially beloved.  Matt and I are looking at getting her a tool bench to replace the hand-me-down toy kitchen she never uses, but are worried about her thinking it’s for boys (she’s VERY self conscious at this age about what’s meant for girls and what’s meant for boys — I’m told this is very normal).  We might get one and paint it pink or something.  Anyway.  Keep an eye out. She’s got the GREEN TOYS set in pink (that’s confusing, I know — Green Toys is the brand) and loooooves it.  Matt also got her a Mickey Mouse toy power drill that she adores.
  • My Little Pony.  Twilight Sparkle is her favorite pony.  I think Karen got her the Equestria Girls set with Sunset Something and Twilight Sparkle.  She likes MLP, but Henry is maybe more of a fan than she is.  Her big loves are –
  • Doc McStuffins.  She would watch Doc all day, every day if she could;
  • Ariel the Mermaid; and
  • Peppa Pig.

She was also really taken with a vanity table, but I think she’s a little too little and right now, I don’t know where we’d put it.

Write me with any questions!!!

Love you.
