My mum decided that she MUST have this for Christmas yesterday:
Above: The Tale of Despereaux Plush Mouse at F.A.O. Swartz
"Aww how cute!", you say.
"It's only $26.25?", you say.
"Oh no it's sold out everywhere!", you say after a bit of searching.
"I will try Ebay!", you say.
Then you see people are selling them for $120 plus on Ebay. $120+ for a 8 inch plush mouse! No f-ing way I am paying that much for a 8 inch stuffed mouse!
Turns out that this plushie is one of the hot, "must have", items of this Christmas and they didn't produce a lot of them so it is rare, rare, rare .
Looks like mum won't be getting what she wants this Christmas because there in no way in hell I am paying a high price for a plushie mouse that was originally $26.25!
