The 2014 birthday blitzkrieg has come to an end. And there's one gift that was just so so good that I had to pass it on to y'all!
Now I know that you know that Lego figures are far from new. We have a few of them hanging around our house. But unfortunately they were the source of frequent
This one is special to me!
She's has it a looooooong time!
He has two Lego guys, and I only have 1!
She's not taking turns!
You know what I mean? Now generally I like to use these opportunities as teaching moments! You know, Let's use this occasion as opportunity to learn the fundamentals for sharing and taking turns. BUT the squabbles never seemed to end! And kept coming every day! Bad, take-the-easy-way-out mommy needed as new strategy to retain her sanity!
I looked into getting more of them. But they aren't cheap, around a $1 a piece. And I am cheap! And I knew the way to settle the squabbles was to get a lot of these little guys!
Enter cheap Chinese knock offs.
Enter 10 mini figures for under $1 with shipping included!
and a very very happy mama who ordered $4 worth!
So there are a few draw backs that I should mention.
- It is random assortment, so you don't really have any idea of which ones you get. In the 40 figures we got, we did have a few duplicates. But the kiddos never noticed.
- They are knock offs. Once I got them out of the package, I couldn't tell the difference, but then again I'm not a Lego connoisseur so take that for what it's worth.
- And they do come from China. So when the shipping says it's gonna take up to a month, believe it. Order early. Looking for stocking stuffers? Order them now. It'll be the best $1 you spent!
Now I have no affiliation with any of these Ebay stores. I just wanted to pass on something that's really worked for us! So I'm not gonna link any specific Ebay listing. Just head over to Ebay and type in "mini figure lot of 10" in the search bar, and you'll have more possibilities that you can shake a stick at starting at $0.10 for 10 of them!
