Target, Pricing and Being Cheap

I went to Target Tuesday.  The store was calling my subconscious.  It said, "Muff, come to me.  Something is on sale.  You need to get it.  You have $10.44 left on that gift card you got... spend it!"  Those voices haven't steered me wrong yet because Target is having a crazy double down clearance sale on tons of toys.  I only bought one thing since I was determined to just use that gift card.  My total came to $9.61!  Money left over, woot woot.  I haven't unboxed my purchase yet so I'll post it later.

My Target finally got in a bunch of the newer releases that I've seen in other peoples blogs.  Some of the items I like and some... not so much.  The only thing they have in common is that I don't want to pay full price for any of them.  Let's review!

They aren't even fully articulated.  That seems too high.  Just about all my Liv dolls were bought on sale from $5 to $9.  I think that has spoiled me.  I know they are new, but I'll wait until they are on clearance.

I actually like the outfits in these Sleepover versions.  I never use Liv heads (except for experiments), so it having closing eyes does nothing for me.  I'll pay $6.99 for this.

No way.  $3.00.  That's it.  It's like they are going for a Basics line, but it's too basic.

This is WAY better than $25!  Still too much though.  $9.99 and that's my final offer.

It's rare to find pants in a Barbie clothing pack... and pants that aren't pink, even!  This is just $1 off the original price, but...

... you get to pick one of these to go with it for free!  Still, more than I want to spend.

I like all of these!  The outfits are adorable and the accessories are so cute.  If they repackage stuff at Christmas I hope there is a Paul Frank repack on sale.  Then I would get it... probably... maybe.

I already have this in a non Paul Frank version... I'll pass.

This has to go on sale.  It just has to.  Please.


  1. Hello from Spain, that there are many nice toys in that store. iS IT A TOY or a supermarket? I would buy any of the Liv and SIS. The bed of Paul Frank also i have other without being Paul Frank. The cool mini car I have it on my wishlist but so far none of these toys are sold in Spain. I like a lot of to teach us the pictures from inside the store. Keep in touch

  2. Hi Marta. This particular Target is just a regular discount store. There are Super Targets that have a supermarket inside of them as well. Either one has a really big toy section.

  3. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

    Think I have missed the sales, but it's nice to know that they are out there.

  4. Hi D7ana. Sale is still going on at my Targets. Hope you find something you like.

  5. I was happy to see the new items when I was last at Target. I don't get the new LIV dolls. Less articulation and bad clothes. What am I missing. I just got some more older LIV dolls from Target on-line for $4 - $6, too. I wasn't willing to miss out on that car waiting for a sale. I'm sure one will come. Hang in there! At the very worst, it will completely sell out and will only be available on ebay. But what are the chances of that happening.

  6. Hi, Vanessa. I don't know what is up with Liv. I just noticed today that they changed the knees on the new dolls and they wont bend as far back as the old ones.

    The sale arrived! I got my Mini today. Yay!
