Littlest Pet Shop

I'm such an addict. I admit it. It was Beanie Babies, Legos, rubber stamps, and now this. The Littlest Pet Shop.
We went to visit a friend on Friday. Their daughter dragged out all her LPS stuff from Santa. They are SO ADORABLE! What time is WalMart open til? 10.00pm? I'm so there!
Unfortunately, we live in Small Ville so there is NO selection. I manage to snag the Pet Care Center that comes with a dog, cat and gecko.
Saturday rolls around. My husband and I are doing our normal Saturday stuff. I say, "Wanna go to the States?" (Massena, NY is just 20 mins. away). He says, "Sure!" So off we go, cross the border, on a LPS hunt! We score big at WalMart! The selection is awesome! We choose a Pet Playground set that comes with a cat and a mouse.
Sunday I had planned to go to Stittsville to visit my friend and upline, Jen, for a day of stamping. "Hey!" I say to my husband, "Would you like to visit your brother?" He says, yeah, why not. "Here's another thought," I say. " We could go to Toys R Us!"
Well, Toys R us is a pretty big store. You'd think there would be a large selection, yes? NO! They had 2 things. 2! About 100 of the stupid LPS carry cases, that do nothing except store your pets. And about 100 of the stupid pets that slurp from a bottle. that's it. the whole LPS selection. This is not Toys R Us...this is Toys We're Not!
We leave, angry but not defeated! We will go to Play Value! They have a warehouse size store. Surely they will have LPS.
No. They do not even carry LPS.
We end up at Zellers where we find a small selection of pets and get a rabbit and a frog.
Here it is Monday. Has it really only been 2 days since we first set our eyes upon LPS? Yet our addiction has taken us to another COUNTRY in search of more!

LOL... too funny, Michelle! I think TRU is sold out after Christmas. I saw quite a few of these when I was shopping there for birthday gifts in September. They ARE awfully cute, aren't they? ;)

YOU ROCK MICHELLE!!! First of all, thank you so much for the comments on my blog. They mean a lot coming from such an experienced artisté (said with frenh accent LOL).

I am guilty of owning the husky dog set of LPS and the turtle. They were just yelling "take me home" on the shelf stores!

Luckily I have a 7, 4 and 2 year old so when we buy the LPS's I can say they are for them. But honestly I love collecting them for the girls. They have 60 now and my husband said they can have no more! WHAT?!?!?!
