A Monstrous Decision

Wow! The holidays went by so fast, the New Year celebration is over, and I have not had a post for that.  Anywayz, I can always go back in time, make it a delayed post, whatever.

Two weeks ago I had the chance to make a short trip at Toys R’ Us,  I was trying hard not to, but the child in me kept cheering Go! Go! Go!  It happens when I don’t feel OK.   I have no plans of buying anything, just want to know what’s new, I didn’t find anything amusing in the Barbie world.  However, I did saw a few Monster High Dolls on sale for 70% off!   That’s Php500.00 to be exact.  I am not a big fan of MH, but I must say there are quite a few that has caught my fancy in the past but never really keen on getting one.  When MH first came out in the market, I have these feelings they were the monsterized version of…Bratz!  But after a while, yeah, they have their own identity to boot.  But I also love Bratz (coming soon here).

So there I was, amazed at the Monsters in front of me, I began to check each and every box on the shelf, 3 dolls appealed to me.  I was talking to myself “don’t buy, no, don’t touch, no”  LOL!

I first saw Ghoulia Yelps, I liked her for the blue tresses, simple, with eyeglasses and what looked like a child’s teether!

Then there’s Twyla, again the hair attracts me, the over all color combination and her outfit, I love it!

And last, Clawdeen Wolf!  I was amused by this one because she have sleep eyes, and she howls! 

After lining them up eye level on the shelf, I asked myself, should I buy one?  After all, I still have not gotten a Christmas gift for myself.  If I buy,  which one should I get?  I have to restrict myself and stick to my budget, I can’t afford all 3 anyway.

Indeed a monstrous decision to make!

“Toys That Refuse to Conform!”

I thought I was over and done with buying dolls.  After my mom died in 2013, I started to lessen my trips to thrift stores, was able to curb the urge to buy like I used to.  Yes, every now and then I yield, but unlike before, now I am more discerning.   So, I’m not yet totally…cured! LOL!

Anyway, I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Andrea B. Divisoria shopping and haul! I got curious so I watched her video.  And there, one store they went to, she held up a box of Begoth Doll Fiona Fatale! My pupils suddenly dilated!  Checking the date, she posted it only a week before I saw it, there’s a possibility that the doll is still there, after all, she didn’t buy it.  There’s no info where in 168 Mall it is located, heck, not even a store sign!  So I replayed the video over and over again, took mental note of the area, a few signs, and at the end of her trip a flash of Soler Wing.  The old wing being the Sta. Elena Street.  After 2 weeks I finally decided to go, it was like treasure hunting! 168 Mall is a huge maze and its my first time there.  After scouring the entire toy section, I felt exasperated, I couldn’t find the store! I decided to give up and just went downstairs to window shop at the clothes section.  Lo and behold!  The store with no name!  

Yes, Fiona is still there but I decided to buy Devastatia.  

  So now I have 3 Begoths Doll!

 There were 2 Devastatia, I chose this one even though her box is not in good condition, the doll even has spots on her face which I’m not sure would come off.

But it did came off with one swipe!  The other doll has better packaging condition, but I noticed the color of her head is not the same as her body, its yellowish!  Anyway, I’m contented with my pick.
