Thank you for helping me to make the Christmas wishes of my children come true. My son loves the Disney movie Cars. Unfortunately, it is hard to find the cars from the original movie; most stores carry the characters from the second movie, which he doesn’t like. (After all, the cars get hurt in that movie…)
I was able to find a few of the original characters at Toys R Us (Yeah!), but Doc Hudson (the one he really wanted) was no where to be found. Other online sites wanted 30 dollars or more for it…and then I turned to Ebay. $12 later and Doc Hudson was being wrapped to be placed under the tree.
And then there was Wendy Waters, a no longer made figure from Fisher Price’s Rescue Heroes series… My kids have been watching videos of Rescue Heroes lately. My son has Billy Blazes, a fire fighter from the show. My daughter asked for Wendy, the other fire fighter, but alas, she was no where to be found.
I figured it would pass, that she really only wanted it because her little brother has a few of the figures.
And then her little brother asked for it for her in his letter to Santa. A letter where most kids list all the toys THEY want for Christmas, and he asks Santa to bring his sister Wendy Waters.
Such a sweet gesture, and I wanted to be sure Santa could deliver. And for less than 7 dollars (and no shipping cost), Wendy will be arriving before Christmas, along with the Dalmatian puppy from the cartoon series (got to love a bonus).
Thank you, again, Ebay, for helping this mom make a couple Christmas wishes come true.
It’s Thankful Thursday time. You know the drill!
