I know I can’t be the only one out there…
If that stupid Hatchimals commercial comes on one more time, I am going to loose my shit…It keeps drilling into my sons head that he needs to have the stupid thing, and as a parent knowing Santa isn’t going to be able to bring it for him this year, breaks my heart.
Such a simple sales tactic as old as time. Supply and Demand. No store has had them in stock for the last couple of weeks and I’ve been kicking myself for not grabbing one earlier. I am an early shopper, but I also shop frugally. I was waiting to be able to use my Toy’s R Us coupon so I didn’t have to spend $60 on that dumb little thing that I know he’ll play with once and toss it to the side. Who the hell knew it was going to be the new Furby?
A few weeks ago after my son saw a You Tube video and mentioned the name, I looked it up on Amazon and saw the price. $59.99. Add to cart was highlighted in yellow,and all I had to do is click it. Ehh,I’ll wait I said… clicking off of the site… It’ll go on sale I said….
A week later, I strolled unknowing, with my $25 off of $100 coupon in hand into the aisle of Toy’s R US that looked most likely to house the brightly colored weird looking egg they call”hatchimals”. I saw a sign hanging on an empty shelf “Hatchimals on Sale $49.99“. Quirky and oblivious to why the shelf was empty, I found an employee and asked if they were somewhere else in the store due to the promotion, like a promotional area. “They’re sold out and I’m not sure when we’ll get them back in” came out of the sales persons mouth and right then and there I knew… It was a fucking Furby. This was going to be my hell for the next month and a half. A quest for an item that is worth 1/3 of the price listed, and now selling on eBay for upwards of $200.
It’s fine I told myself. He doesn’t need to have everything he has on his list. He doesn’t need everything he wants for Christmas. UNTIL the commercial is on after every single episode of Spongebob telling him subliminally that this is the best toy ever and he needs one.
We’ll see. My quest has just begun. I will not forget how easy it once would’ve been to click “add to cart” and I WILL find one of these stupid unicorn items they call “Hatchimals”.
Until then, STOP IT WITH THAT DAMN COMMERCIAL for something that right now, does not exist to purchase!
