Kid in a Toy Store...

Posted by Heather at Friday, February 24, 2012

Thanks for my Rapunzel Doll, Dorothy and Mike Burke!

... Toys R Us, to be exact. Katy received several gift cards to Toys R Us for her birthday, this year. So, after an impromptu lunch date with Daddy, we then walked over to the toy store (less times to buckle and unbuckle a tantrum-y toddler) to let Katy pick out her gift. At first, I was going to go ahead and buy something that I thought she might like/want/need but then, I decided- it's her gift card- let her pick out what she wants!

So, bracing for the worst (Berenstain Bear's and the Gimmes comes to mind....), we started scoping the shelves. Before we even entered the store, though, I explained to Katy what we were going to do (trust me, I can have full conversations with my two year old!). I asked her what she wanted (because the child certainly doesn't NEED anything) and she replied very quickly and very matter-of-factly, "I get baby Rapunzel." Katy had already gotten a Rapunzel Barbie doll from our friends the Pates (which she loves!), for her birthday so I just figured she was just fixated on Rapunzel the movie and not so much getting a baby Rapunzel (I didn't even know if such a thing existed!).

Well, we got to the Disney Princess aisle (yes, Toys R Us has a whole TWO rows devoted to Tiana, Ariel, Aurora, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Snow White!), and Katy immediately found her toy! Wouldn't you know, it was labeled, "Rapunzel, Toddler BABY doll" and it does kind of look like a baby version of the Rapunzel in the movie, Tangled. After she saw HER doll, there was no going back- that is what she wanted!- and she was so happy! So happy, in fact, that she went into her car seat without a struggle. One happy little girl, one relieved mama (about the car seat and lack of toddler meltdown in the middle of the toy store).
