Frozen Toys Always Out of Stock in Manila But Found These...

        

        Always out of stock. That's pretty much the gist for now. My little Rainbow loves loves loves the animated movie (who doesn't?) and I would really love for her to get to play with some Frozen merchandise.

        The sucky part is that when we were at this tiny mall in San Fernando La Union called CSI Mall, I saw a whole bunch of Frozen toys there. And I was pretty sure they were original. Because it was the same ones I would see online. But I hesitated on buying because I thought maybe it would be less expensive back in Manila. The toy I had my eye on was 1,200. Can you believe it? For two small dolls! So there, I didn't buy.

        Fast forward to when we got back in Manila. The following day we went to Crimson Hotel for a blog gig. During our rest time, Richie went to a nearby mall to buy Rain a Frozen toy. Out of stock. Apparently the wealthy Alabang moms buy out all the stocks as soon as the shelves are restocked. Uh-oh... Oh well for sure there will be in Megamall or something. 

        A few days after, I went to Toy Kingdom. And all Frozen toys are out of stock and they weren't sure if they were ever going to get stock again. Heart-broken, I walked back to Podium. On my way back, I passed by St. Francis as I always do. Then just when all hope was lost, I passed by a toy stall and found these...



Disney frozen plastic figurines

        Only P100 per figurine. And they were the only Frozen merchandise there! From Elsa, to Anna, to Kristoph, to Sven, to Olaf, and even down to Prince Hans of the Southern Isles! Just one plastic figurine per  character. So yes I  bought them all! 

Disney frozen plastic figurines

        Are they original? The vendor says yes. Because all the toys that are displayed in the glass cabinette are supposedly original. Of course I can't really be sure. If you look under, it says Disney Vietnam. But anyway their appearance didn't look THAT bad. And at this point I didn't care haha! So I went home with a small plastic bag of the whole Frozen cast! (No boxing whatsoever!)

        I mean St. Francis Mall! Who would have thought, right? Never underestimate the power of tiangges!


        And then a few days back, we got a message from our friend Tales from the Tummy couple friend Richard and Irene saying they saw something Frozen at Powerbooks. And without batting an eyelash I said GET IT!!! It's  a magnetic magic slate attached to a book that shows you how to draw Frozen images. Pretty cool!


        And then just this weekend, the kind-hearted Jane Go of the Sugar and Spice blog surprised Rain with two bigger dolls of Queen Elsa and Princess Anna! Such a sweetheart that Jane! She got this from eBay! It's one of Rain's favorite toys right now! :-) Thanks again Jane!
