What I Got: 2 Playskool Toys from Amazon under $8.99

My husband always complains that our littlest one gets shafted because he doesn’t NEED anything after having two older brothers . . . and because he has so much secondhand stuff I don’t hardly ever buy toys, seriously. But I found two good deals today and I bought both of them so hopefully that will help my husband feel better.

First, I got this great Playskool Poppin' Park Pound-N-Pop Carnival for just $8.99!

My son loves balls and loves to laugh, so I can’t imagine that this won’t be a huge hit with him. Now, my biggest debate is how long the balls will actually stay with this toy versus being carried to the bath, in his bed, snuck out to the car, buried in the backyard, well you get the idea. But for $8.99 I won’t be too upset when that does happen.

I kind of laughed when I first saw this advertised today. Both my husband and I wanted a “GloWorm” when we were little. Unfortunately, I don’t think either one of our families could afford such a frivolous expense at that point, so neither of us actually ever owned one.

But again, this baby of ours loves music and seems to have a wee bit of difficulty staying asleep or amused when in his bed and not asleep. So he will be the first in our family to actually have his own Playskool Lullaby Gloworm Boy and it was only $6.29.

This is definitely one of those gifts that you wonder who is actually going to enjoy it – the child or the parents.

Both items shipped FREE because my husband had Amazon Prime Shipping, but even if you didn’t you could get these two and add another $10 item and they would all ship FREE.

I paid for most of this purchase with Amazon gift cards earned through Swagbucks. You can begin earning Swagbucks yourself and it won’t be long before you’ll have enough to get an Amazon gift card for yourself.
