Sweet deal!

I've wanted a Fisher Price Drop & Roar Dinosaur since they started advertising them a couple years ago, and I always told my mom that she had to get me one when I had kids. Well, they stopped making them over a year ago, and the new ones that are left for sale are going for $150+ on Amazon. No thanks!

On a whim, I checked Craigslist, and found one that's damn near brand new for $20! It's mine now. I'm so freakin' excited!

YOU are nuts!
I am so behind in this buying stuff for baby. Maybe when I go to Kansas City I can catch up.
So where will you store it until Tucker can use it?? Don't you just want to play with it:) ?
And when is your gender scan? That should be coming up soon, right?

OMG that is so cute!!! Baby Tucker will love it!!!

My boys had something similiar...although not nearly as cute... and they would play with it for hours and I belive it was the longest duration toy.... they used it forever!

PS... saw this dino sleepwear and totally thought of Baby Tucker!

Lindsey - I totally am nuts, but it's such a sweet toy! Right now, it's in the living room, and that's where it's gonna stay for the time being, probably until we can clean out the spare room and start setting it up for my lil man. I got up this morning and sat on the couch, and it's starting at me, like "Play with me!" lol I figure Anthony can test it out when he comes over, since we don't really have any other age-appropriate toys for a 2-year-old. He usually ends up playing with the magnets on the fridge and chasing the cat around. lol

Sumer - That sleeper is so adorable. I'm pretty sure I bought it at Burlington Coat Factory like 2 weeks ago hahaha I've gotten in the habit of snatching up dino stuff when I see it, but I'm not gonna anymore- I have a shower coming up in a few months, and I know people will find dino stuff for me. I don't want to end up with like 50 of the same outfit.

its A. W. E. S. O. M. E. awesome awesome, TOTALLY!!!! haha sorry it's a cheer mallory used to do in cheerleading, & it reminded me of the dino toy because its pretty freakin sweet. I cant wait to come over & play with it. i mean, let anthony play with it :)

ohh & by the way, every time I went to look at the kangaroos they were all laying down, I didn't get to see one hop :( it would have made my lifeee if I did.

That's great! Oh, and I missed your previous post and now you made me want a caramel apple. I had a candied one at the fair last week and am just dying for apples dipped in anything sugary or caramel-y. yum. No, my food cravings haven't really kicked in yet...or maybe they have?
