Toy Story Tuesday and Walmart Christmas Haul

 Hi guys!  For those of you who don't know, this is not only voting day, but it is also Toy Story Tuesday.  Why?  Because Toy Story 3 was released on DVD and Blu-ray today! :)  I'm so excited!  I just got home with my copy and can't WAIT to watch it.  Of course, once again, I bought the DVD Blu-ray combo, so I won't be able to watch all the special features yet!  (I STILL haven't watched my Beauty and the Beast special features!) :{  But it was worth it.

One of the reasons I wanted to do this post is to share the news about the great coupon I got.  For those of you who are members of Disneymovierewards.com, they are doing a special promotion.  From now until November 8th, you can print out a coupon for $8 off the Blu-ray DVD combo pack!  I got mine at Walmart, where they were only charging $24.95.  So I got a 4 disc Toy Story 3 (2 Blu-ray discs, 1 DVD disc, and 1 Disney Digital copy) for a little under $20.  If you have a Disney Movie Rewards account, I'd highly recommend using the coupon.  And if you don't, you can sign up and still get the coupon.  My mom didn't have an account, but when she found out about the coupon, she signed up and was able to print one for herself.  If you're a person who already buys Disney movies, it's a good deal.  It's free to sign up and you get points for every Disney movie you purchase.  It takes a while to accumulate enough points to get any rewards, but if you are already buying movies anyway, it doesn't hurt, and in the long run you can get something nice. 

Okay, moving on!  :)  If you happen to go to Walmart to purchase your Toy Story 3 Blu-ray (like I did), be sure to stop by their Christmas section.  I found a bunch of great Christmas stuff for dolls.  They have some great low prices, so most of the items are under $5 a piece! :)

My goodies :)

I love this pretty Christmas wreath, and so does Tess.  She can't wait to find a place to hang it when it gets closer to Christmas.  This was just $2, and looks really nice.  As you can see, it's the perfect size for an 18" doll.

I really wanted to do stockings for my dolls this year, but I didn't want to spend a bunch on them.  These packs of 4 stockings were only $1 each!  Sure, they're not the best quality, but since they're just going to be on display, theyshould look okay.  You can choose either red (pictured above with Tess) or green (below).

If you want to personalize your stockings, Walmart also sells these fun glitter pens in sets of 3 for $1.  They are specifically for stockings.  I'm planning on putting each doll's name on her stocking.

Btw, the red is a truer red then in this pic..my lighting wasn't very good this morning.

To fill the stockings, they have a ton of cute mini toys for stocking stuffers.  I thought these little koosh balls and yo yos would be just perfect.  Walmart also has mini card games, mini puzzles, and much much more.  

IThere were plenty of other things to choose from that I didn't purchase, like ornament and accessory sets for 18" tall Christmas trees.  They even sell the trees themselves-you can choose natural green, purple, red, gold, silver and several other colors for your tree.  Then they have sets that coordinate with the colors you chose...there are even pretty tree skirts!  

There were other nicer mini stockings, more ornaments, and other Christmas accessories that would fit your doll perfectly.  If you get a chance check this stuff out and choose some things for yourself, I'd love to see what you get. :)  I'm hoping to go back for more after I make some more Craigslist sales! :)

I know! I had lots of fun too. I had to make myself walk away, though. It's amazing how easy it is to overspend when things only cost $1-$2. :} I'd like to get a mini tree skirt, some mini ornaments, and some ornaments that looked like wrapped presents after I sell a few more things. I love Christmas decorations!!! :)

Fun! I'll have to look for the Christmas stuff for my dolls. We bought Toy Story 3 as well, except it will be a surprise for my youngest sister for her birthday just before Christmas.

Hi Claire! :) I just went to Walmart the other day and they have even more doll-sized Christmas stuff. It makes it tough to choose...but it's so much fun!
Hope your sister enjoys Toy Story 3...it's such a great movie! :)
