Clothing Set (at least every thing wasn't pink)
Dead Tired Clawdeen Wolf and latest(?) Fashionista Raquelle.
Each item was $13 with a final cost of $9.75 ea after the sale. I actually could have gotten better prices with a Target BOGO sale, but hey. So, now that I've spent over $20 I'll be getting a FREE one of these:

At least her outfit is cute and I can use that bucket... but then today, when I'm ready to send away for it, I read the print on the flyer. In 2 to 3 months I will receive this awesome item after I send Mattel $5.00.
Well, aint that a brick. I realize that inflation being what it is, the price of things go up substantially over the years. When I was a kid, the cost to get something "Free" in the mail was 25 cents. You'd tape your quarter to an index card, send it off and in 1 month, not 2 or 3, you'd get some dubious crap in the mail that fell apart after 2 days. No kid minds spending a quarter for junk, but $5.00 is a lot of money!
I know I'm being ridiculous and I could get a $18.99 set for $5.00, but don't tell me it's "FREE" and then tell me to give you $5.00 to send it to me. Puh-lease. Needless to say, there will be no hugs 'n' pugs 'n' suds or whatever coming to Muff's place. Pfft!
