Boo’s last letter to Santa was incredibly sweet and lovely (albeit hideously in need of spellcheck!) and, in the words of Noodles ‘it did come true!’
So, she’s probably now hoping her more mercenary list will also come true. After all, having settled on half the toys in the Smith’s catalogue she ‘helpfully’ drew pictures and assigned items to different people.
Thankfully I had the foresight to label the items as she drew them.
‘So, what’s on the list?’ Teflon Man asked as we sat in bed, laptop poised for the exploration of toy bargains.
‘Riiiight, errrr, a Barbie unicorn.’
One Google search and we found the exact unicorn. Ah, this would be easy!
The Disney Princess Lego wasn’t too hard to find either. But then we started to come a bit unstuck.
‘She’s got a Draculara doll on the list.’
Except there are about a hundred different Draculara dolls out there. The pressure was on to find the right one.
‘What does the picture look like?’ Teflon Man asked.
We can only hope this is the one she wanted:
That said, it’s been assigned to Santa, so it’ll be the big man’s fault if he gets it wrong.
We had equal fun looking for Romi 2-in-1, with her wings and massively over-developed wrists…
…and an Elsa doll that has clearly been on steroids.
Just in case dolls aren’t body-dysmorphic enough already!
With only six more sleeps to solve all of the clues here’s hoping we’ve been on the right track. At least she hasn’t declared that she’s changed her mind, unlike a friend’s daughter! (So much for being prepared!)
Maybe next year I’ll request product codes too though. Just to be on the safe side.
