Thank Goodness for EBay!

I know I have mentioned it before but Big Boy is just crazy for JoJo & Goliath from JoJo's Circus on the Disney channel. The only problem is, she is no longer the "it" show on Disney and her merchandise had been discontinued. When BB was about 6 months old I bough him a little JoJo doll from the store and he really didn't pay any attention to it until about three months ago. Now he is three years old and won't do ANYTHING without JoJo.

A few weeks ago, I happened to be browsing through EBay and stumbled upon some JoJo stuff and it was ending in three minutes. I quicky searched my desk drawer for my EBay passwords and got a bid of $18.01 in with about ten seconds on the clock! Yahoo! I had won BB some JoJo stuff! It finally came today and he is so happy! He now has Goliath to go with JoJo. He has a few of the character figurines, the JJ car and JJ's house. Most importantly...I have a back up JoJo with the tags still on it tucked away up high in a cabinet. It's the same one he has. I have nightmares about what would happen if he ever lost her. Now I can rest a little easier knowing I have one in reserve.

To tell the truth, she is getting really worn out too. He takes her in the bath with him every night, she plays outside with him and she eats with him. It is only a matter of time before she needs major repair surgery or doesn't survive a trip to the washing machine. He loves her though and that's all that matter,

So, the moral of the story....Thank heavens for EBay!

I understand how you feel about kids loving items that are no longer "popular". For the longest time, Emily was OBSESSED with Barney. Have you tried looking for that? Nada. It was a pain in the ass. But, just like you, I fell for Ebay!

Now, it's just Dora centric in this house. No problem finding that loud mouth at the store.

My boy is 2 1/2 and still loves Teletubbies. I buy used Tele books off of Ebay and Amazon for him. We also have many of their dvd's. Oy!

Take care...don't be such a CPC

Good to hear everything is ok!
I regret everyday that I didn't buy all the JoJo stuff a few years ago when they were on clearance at Toysrus. I bought a lot of Diva's JoJo stuff off ebay as well, but even there the quanities are getting low.
