The Dynamic Duo decided that this year's must-have Christmas gift is the Hot Wheels Wall Tracks starter set.
I attempted to pick one up in Target when it went on sale on Sunday but found only empty shelves and rainchecks. I tried to e-shop it, just to get it over with, only to discover that every other boy ages 5-9 wants one, too.
They were sold out in site after site, and going for nearly twice the MSRP on ebay and Amazon. I finally discovered that Walmart was accepting orders and claimed to have it in stock. I took the leap of faith, paid the MSRP (that hurt, I hate it when I don't get a bargain), and placed the order.
It just arrived.
Way to go, Walmart! Christmas is saved (as long as those stinkers don't change their minds).
I'm just glad I'm not hunting for a Leappad. Phew!
