An Unnoticed Feature in the Mattel Refrigerator
This morning I got an email from Mattel offering me 15% off on my next on-line purchase. I had to just go take a peek. No I didn't buy anything.....yet, but I headed straight to the playsets to start. There I saw the current refrigerator that Mattel has available. I never really liked this refrigerator. It is way too pink and with it being see thru, it might be difficult to transform. I did take a closer look at it because of the title "Barbie Treats to TV Fridge". What does that mean? Can the dolls watch TV from the fridge? Well there isn't a TV, but there is a 'yogurt maker' inside the fridge, which is fully operational once you put the batteries in.
Why did I stop to read about the refrig that I never really cared for? Well, I bought this fridge about a month ago, because it was on sale at Target for $9. I have yet to take it out of the car, along with one of the two fashionistas I bought, that were also on sale. I have contemplated taking it back to the store on several occassions. Of course, returning a Barbie item that I don't already have, has never happened. Especially one that was on sale.
A fridge with a working yogurt maker makes this less than appealing item a lot more interesting to me. It will definitely be staying now. It will probably stay in the car until I figure out who needs a yogurt maker. The answer just came to me as I was typing. I think the dancer in the Studio Dreams group, would be the perfect candidate for a yogurt maker fridge.
I really have to start looking at those playsets a lot closer. I am now noticing that Mattel is doing some interesting things with some of their playsets.
