I keep stopping to a screech because I think we finally have proper sized Pop Tarts … One Pop Tart the size of my head but NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Just 4 boxes of the regular boring size. We can get a 5lb gummy bear but no giant pop tart? Tweet This Post

Of course, what makes this set is the bear. It’s not American camping unless someone gets mauled. It’s realistic in that the bear is 8x the girth of a LEGO human and basically the size of a fishing boat and the guy approaches with a $2,000 camera. Also at Amazon. No wolverine in the Pizza one? […]

Thanks for the great pics, “John H.” Road Trippin’ Mack does NOT come with any diecasts. Yuge. Mack is Metallic Red and the cab is metal with his hat, plastic … pretty much the same as Mack Hauler.

Well, this is in theory good news … a new endcap is good news … Of course, this Target has about 11 CARS items so it’s mostly Peppa Pig. They look cute though there seems to be about 175 character and variants so I guess I missed that collecting boat plus it looks bad to […]

Thanks for the nice pics, “BMW.” While on the surface, it appears that the Easter CARS are a TRU exclusive. Normally, a “direct import” is an exclusive. If you can convince Mattel to sell you an exclusive, you pay upfront and they ship it to you as a direct import. But in this case, more […]
