Target Toy Sale

Posted July 21st, 2011 in Ume and Baby 5 Comments »

Today I went to Target to grab some toys for Hiro, and it was CRAZY!!!!

This Target opens at 9am, and I arrived there 10 past 9.  Then I noticed few mums with bubs and kids already leaving the car park.  The car park was full.  It’s not a big shopping mall, just Target and some other small shops, so those people must be after toys at Target’s toy sale!

I run inside the shop, with Hiro in Baby Bjorn, then I was surprised to see so many people in Target.  It was crazy.  The shop opened 10 minutes ago, and some toys that I was going to get were already sold out.

I made a list of toys I wanted to buy a day before, but I was overwhelmed buy the atmosphere and bought few more…   :p

One thing I really wanted to buy was this baby walking chair thing.  Because Hiro keeps trying to stand up, step forward, and jump a lot (with support) these days, I thought this was a perfect thing for him to play at the moment.

Others are spoons, a toy for a cot, and toys for his cousins and my friends’ babies.

When I saw my in-law buying lots of toys for her first son few years ago, I thought she had bought too many toys for the boy.  I didn’t know that each toy actually has meaning and supports baby grows.

Now I’m at home, longing to have a cup of hot coffee…. I’m so tired.  Wait, Hiro seems to be bored now.  I’ve gotta play with him, feed, and put him to sleep.  Then I get my time… (only 30 minutes though, as he only sleeps maximum 30 minutes during the day)!

    Ha ha…sounds like you need a relax after all that! I see you got the hungry caterpillar books…I read Eric Carle books to my boys, from a very early age. It’s never to early to start reading to babies! The best thing about new toys is that it makes playing with babies even more fun for the parents! Enjoy your day!

    Hi Ume, Did you ever see Eric Carle’s book, The Very Quiet Cricket? It is an adorable board book with a simple and lovely story, and at the end when you open the last page it makes a beautiful cricket sound. That was my oldest boy’s favourite, we must have read it a thousand times! I still have all those books, reminds me of their baby days 🙂
    have a happy day!
