Getting it Cheaper
The newest Mattel baby playset, albeit too pink, has some really nice pieces. This set retails for $24.99. More than I wanted to pay. I would have paid it eventually, if I wasn't able to find it cheaper. Luckily, while browsing on Walmart.com, I ran across this set for $17.99. That's a little less than 30% off. I can live with that. The beauty of Walmart.com is the Ship-to-Store feature. Most of the time, you can have any item shipped to your local store for pickup at no additional cost to you. That makes it much easier to get items that aren't normally stocked at your store. Another option is shipping directly to your home. If you order $49 or more, shipping to your home is free. This came in real handy last year when I was recuperating from my surgery. All the essentials I needed, like dog food, toilet paper, and the occasional doll item was delivered to my front door.
The crib and the changing table will be painted. Maybe I will try to give them an antique look. The doll has a cute outfit, that I will keep, but the doll is already set for the donate pile.
