What we do for kids

It's a <A HREF="http://www.powerranger.co.uk/deluxesupertrainmegazord.htm"<B>Power Rangers Deluxe Supertrain Megazoid</B></A>. Evidently it's the hot toy this Xmas and they stopped making it this summer, so no one has it. It normally costs $49.99. I had to do hours of searching before I found one that was under $200. I finally found one from a gentleman in Western Australia who sold it to me for $100 plus $29 in insurance and air delivery so that it would arrive by Dec 25th.

It may seem like he was making out like a bandit, but he was very nice. He's wrapping it for me free of charge and even offered to put the return address from Santa Claus. I didn't think my nephew would buy that Santa lives in Australia.

Thanks to <lj user=ntang> for helping me look. I had people from all over the world helping me look, but eventually I found it myself. Thanks to all of them.

Granted it's way too much to spend on a stupid toy, but this year was rough for many, so it's good to spread a little joy.

Then again, maybe I'm just getting an overpriced toy for a spoiled brat. It's all a matter of perspective I suppose.

Seasons Greetings all
