Got Squishies????



We do!!!!! They are the latest craze over here......at 25 cents each from the machine at the grocery store it's do-able. And I must admit they are kinda cute. But seriously....these people who think this stuff up are toooo much!!! Why can't I get every little kid hooked on something for a few months and make millions????? Probably because they don't want to knit, scrapbook or do crafts!!!

Cub has a LOOOOOTTT of collections......his beer caps, Bakugans, Pokeman cards....I got 500 on ebay for $9.99! Yes!!...Disney pin collection......that was crazy while we were in Disney...but again I scored on a ton of pins and a portfolio on ebay that "Santa" brought him last year for a fraction of the cost. Then there are all of his stuffed "friends"....Don't get me started on the Star Wars stuff....I was just happy I talked him out of wanting to do his room all in Star Wars stuff! Just a few weeks ago he started a map collection when we were driving home from Buffalo in that snowstorm. We kept stopping at all of the rest stops and he was getting them from the kiosks in there. He also has a marble collection he inherited from the big kids....Dumb. He did skip the Webkinz phase though....getting only 3 or 4. Wheh!!!

But I must say he is organized about them....they are all in bins, folders or special places. But his room is only so big........and he's only six. And I keep getting sucked in to help him with them...hunting stuff down when he's not even with me!? They don't mention this kind of thing in the Mommy Handbook I have....I guess it's just best to roll with it......they are only little once!

Never heard of them!? I'm glad my guy's only 3! But I hear you about being over-run with toys. I need to do the pre-holiday purge that you blogged about!!

How cute! And only 25 cents at the grocery store?? Wish we had those. I don't think our Publix even carries those types of machines anymore.

At our house Action is into any thing having to do with vehicles. Boats, trailers, semi's, cars, trucks...... If only they were as small as the squishies and collected cards.

My kids are into Gogo's Crazy Bones. They will do Any. Thing. if you promise them a crazy bone. They sell them at 5 Below and they come with a game booklet that also rates the different colors and shapes. It's nuts!

My kids always THINK they want to collect crap--and then it ends up all over my house and on my last nerve. And it turns out they don't commit to any collections. Just like their mom.

We've got a few at our house...at least they're not as expensive as webkinz! I can handle a quarter or two!
