The arrival of a box of toys in the mail is delightful for the kids, and this month I have definitely indulged them.
Carbon was trading his bionicle parts at homeschool park days, but he didn't have enough pieces and I felt bad for him after an older boy traded him two launchers for an entire figure. Ebay seemed like a logical source to "bulk up" his bionicle collection, but I was unprepared for how much some people are willing to pay for these toys! After bidding on many lots, we finally got one. And to be fair, I also bid on a lot of groovy girl dolls for Hypatia. And then, since I was now hooked on ebay, I bid on a few lego sets and got a Harry Potter set.
At that point, I had to pull the plug on my computer. No More Ebay!
