Well - I always make a big deal (ok mock) DH for his need to purchase the exclusive of his little plastic men (Marvel, DC, yadda yadda yadda) . If Wal-Mart has an exclusive, he MUST have it.
I collect Barbies and have for about 10 years now. I have been sucked into the exclusives. I am now chasing the allusive career Silkstone's that had original releases in various countries. Will they be released in the US - yes at some time - but I MUST have these little dolls. Since I don't know people in Singapore and the like- I am bound by E-bay. So far I have secured 3 of the 5 dolls....I need the nurse and the stewardess to complete my collection.
It took me about 3 years to finally collect the entire Wizard of OZ porcelain collection - THANK GOD for E-bay....
Do I have room for more Barbies - NO. Do I need these dolls - NO. Do I even take them out of the box to "play" with them - NO. Do I want them - YES YES YES.
I am now as sad as DH......sigh......
