Kids Craze Warehouse Sale Loot

Last month we were able to visit the Kid’s Craze Warehouse Sale for three times in two consecutive weeks. The best part of the visit happened during the last day of their sale. Ever wonder why? Read on.

The main purpose why we went there was to simply buy holiday gifts for the kids. I know it won’t be a surprise for them anymore because we have to tag them along due to our yayaless situation. On a second thought, we just make them choose the gift they want.

As expected, the room is packed with people from all sorts. They sell items for kids from apparels, shoes and toys. I must say they really have marked down prizes for their items. But because it’s a warehouse sale, some toy boxes are already dented. As we go around, I saw in one corner the Robosapien V2 J has been fancying for years now. Then the boys were glued already and they were both ambivalent as to get the toy or not considering the condition of the box. The toy was originally priced P15000 the last time we saw it at Toys “R Us few years ago, but it was on sale for only P2000! It was indeed a great deal but more of a gamble as whether it will function well or not. Still, J bought the toy and got the little girl a rag doll with a marked down price of P450 from original price of P1500.
The first visit. We got the RS Version 2 Robot and a rag doll for the little girl.
The RS V2 robot's farewell. 

When we arrived home, they were very excited to try it out. It was indeed a great deal for few minutes because it did some tricks and eventually stopped. After few days of contemplation, we decided to return it and get the same item if they still have available or exchange it with a different toy having the same value. When we got there, things have gone worse! He saw a different kind of robot, which, is the RS Media, and the most expensive robot, originally priced at almost P30000 (Amazon price USD999) with a mark down value of P16000. Obviously I am not in favor of splurging that amount for a single toy. Instead, we got Mega Blocks for the kids originally priced at P3500 and we got only for P1800. I also got a pair of Fisher Price shoes for the little girl for only P100, a small RS Version1 robot and some toy cars.

Second visit's loots.
But since J really wanted to have the RS Media, we went there during the last day of the warehouse sale. He was a happy camper because he got to take home the toy and got it from a fraction of the marked down price. We immediately try it out and fortunately the toy is functioning very well. The box is old and dented but the item is still in pristine condition.

Happy Campers.
The kids and the new baby.
My babies had a merry holiday and very happy with their loots. Hope to visit them again this year and looking forward for good finds!
