2) I'm going to be building something called a flippyfluegen or something like that.
3) I'm going to Toy Joy!
And that's what this post is all about, number three! Yea for Toy Joy! I have had to say it before, but I'll re state my case. I loves me some Toy Joy. Toy Joy is the most awesome toy shop in Texas, the United States, make that the world, maybe even the galaxy!
Now this trip to Austin was by complete surprise. I had actually planned on making the trip in Sunday, when I would have been better prepared with my camera and a plan. This trip was sprung on me early Friday on a nice drive to San Marcus, a town between Eclectorama Land and Austin. it sort of went like this...
Wife: "you know we are about half way to Austin, we should just go ahead to IKEA and save gas"
Me: "I guess, though we are not really half way, maybe a third, and I don't have my camera, and... okay,let's do it"
Wife: "Great, wake me when we get there, I'm taking a nap."
So we hit IKEA, shop, shop, shop. Okay, pick up heavy stuff from self serve area, and we are out the door... Wow under two hours! It's a record! Toy Joy has been doing some expanding since I was last there, and there was all sorts of crazy goodness in the store that fine Friday afternoon. So much good stuff that I was like a kid in a candy store, I couldn't remember all the stuff when it came time to pick out a couple things to purchase. It wasn't till I had left that I remembered the other stuff, so bear with me real quick as I make a list for next time.
1) Awesome 12" vinyl Godizilla by back door.
2) Ultraman Halloween Mask in Kaiju section
3) Two headed Monster baby
4) Rubber monkey finger puppet assortment
5) Squirrel underpants
6) Windup Shinny Futurama Bender
There that should do it.
So what did I see and get this time? Well, I did shoot a few pics with my mobile phone, and I picked up a couple things, not really that special, but some stuff I wanted to get. Lets see...
That's it for this trip, but I'm hoping we make another trip soon. What's that? What did we pick up from IKEA? That's a surprise for another post.
