Randomness

Let me start off this story by saying

... I NEVER BUY STUFF AT DISNEYLAND... 
except this once.
We went to Disneyland the other day, and I we happened upon this toy store selling Mr. Potato Head parts. What you do, is grab a box, fill it with a potato head, and all the parts you can fit in and still close the box. One box is $18.

Well... I have three potato heads at home, so I didn't need to waste space by putting in a potato. So my friend Lisa and I filled our boxes TO THE BRIM with the coolest potato head accessories!  
Disclaimer: If I didn't have a potato head, I would not this would be worth it! $18 for a potato head and four accessories is a waste of money, but a whole box of disney accessories! Priceless.

Here is my box:

Here are the piece outside of the box:

Here are a couple of my favorite Potato head creations:
Tinkerbell

Donald Duck

We also got parts to make Minnie Mouse and Buzz Lightyear.

The twins love them, and secretly so do I. I will admit sometimes I play with them when the twins are asleep.

Hahaha. Awesome. One year the boys got some Christmas presents from grandparents that I was not about to keep, and when I returned them to Toys R Us, they had all these cool Strawberry Shortcake toys....

I grew up with Strawberry, but never had any of the dolls, so I bought myself a toy with the money. Strawberry with a little house and a bunch of accessories. I love it. Who says kids grow up?

LOL. You are hilarious. Love it.

Jessica said...

I must admit, we ended up tossing our potato head after a few months. Tal lost 75% of the 4 accessories within weeks of the purchase.
Yours look like fun though, hope it last a LONG time!
Oh and I'm jealous that you went to Disneyland again.

I didn't know such fun accessories existed. Have to keep that in mind next time we do a Disney trip.
