Ultimate Toy Run

10 different stores in 3.5 hours, and boy are my feet tired!  After finally doing my taxes, I'm going to get a nice refund back.  Since I've been a very good girl (toy wise), I generously decided that I deserved a little spree... within budget, of course.  Here's what I got:


Ross had the MoxieTeenz ($15.99) and two Liv Alexis' ($7.99 & $9.99).  Walmart the Beach Barbie ($5.97) and Karate Fashion Pack ($5.87).  Kmart had the Liv Sophie ($15.00).  All the other stores were a bust.  I did see that Target has their 1st version exclusive Barbie Basic Accessory pack on clearance for $7.86.  I don't have this pack but I still didn't get it.  I'm betting they'll double it down.

I consider this a good haul and I had money left over, so yay!

  4. Congratulations on your finds. The Liv dolls seemed especially good sales. And the Karate pack looks fun. Will you be having a karate class?

    1. Thanks, D7ana. Even paying $15 for the Sophie Liv felt like a bargin because she came with a 4 piece outfit, scarf, bag, glasses, extra wig and a wig stand.

      I used to take karate a long time ago, so I just had to get the karate gi. I don't think there are any karate classes in my girl's futures. I'd need a lot more gi's.

  5. Hi Muff, great purchases! TRU also has the Moxie dolls at a reduced price of I believe $14.99. I have two of them. My inner voice said no more big dolls. My other voice said yeah right! Lol! I like my other voice better. Lol! The wigs and fashions are also reduced to $4.99 and $7.99 respectively.

    Happy Sunday!

    1. You made my Sunday, Georgia Girl! I read your comment about 3:30pm and by 4:00 I was in TRU! I've never paid attention to Moxie dolls before. There was only one at Ross in a Liv bin so it stood out. I got it for the guitar and outfit, but the doll itself was super interesting once I got it open and it gave me many ideas. Thank you, thank you, because now I have 2!

    1. Sergio, you do know that the Twist & Dance LIVS don't have knees that bend? They are the great for the costumes and the wigs though.

    2. Hi, Sergio! I see from Dollz4Moi that Twist & Dance Livs don't have bendable knees. I have seen them in the stores but never noticed their knees didn't bend. If they are the ones I'm thinking of they are wearing pants so it's not visible. I hope they are what you want.

    3. @Dollz4Moi: I didn't know this :( I thought that Livs were all the same, also, the seller told me that she is fully articulated. Thanks Dollz4Moi!
      @Muff: Yes, she wears pants... Next time that I want to purchase something not avalaible in the italian shops I'll ask advice to you.

    1. Hi, Ebony. I only started collecting Livs last year so I may have missed the Liv pink phase.

  13. Don't you love those shopping sprints! You almost feel like you didn't spend as much money when you do it fast! I look forward to seeing what you do with your new stash.

  15. Lucky you, what a lovely lot of dolls. I must admit to being a bit envious of the price you paid for the Moxie Teenz doll. While Moxie girlz have been available here for a long time, I only say a Moxie Teenz for the first time last week and it was $50 - so I'll have to wait a while to get one.

    1. $50, Carrickters?! No way would I pay that much. I really like the ones I got but that is too much money for their simple articulation.

    1. Elijah our Ross stores are on the messy side too. With so many customers it's hard for staff to keep it tidy I guess.

  19. I haven't done a marathon shopping run in a long time. Now that gas is so high, I will be putting it off longer. I'm glad I got the chance to enjoy your! You got some great stuff. Which Sofie is that with the jean jacket? I haven't see her before. I've been debating the Karate Fashion Pack.

    1. Ms. Leo, I had to do some research on it, but that Sophie is the 1st version of the doll that was launched in 2009. I just did a post on her if you want to see the whole box.

      I haven't opened my Karate Pack yet but I have seen some photos of it on Flickr and I think it's awesome.
