I didn’t say much about it, but Saturday (Aug. 23) was my birthday! I’m 26 years old now. It’s hard to believe…
Like last year, my dad, my brother, and The Muse took me to Atlanta to hunt for Winx dolls. (That’s not all we did, but it was a big part of the day.) The first Toys R Us we hit was in a shopping center called Buckhead Station, which is attached to an apartment complex. The people living in it have plenty of cash to spend. They make more than $100,000 a year! I wish I’d grown up here! 😛
Anyway, this TRU had all six Bloomix dolls! Our cashier — I think he’s a Winx fan 🙂 — said they’d just gotten them the day before! Lucky! 😀 I got Flora, and The Muse bought me Aisha and Stella for my birthday and Musa and Tecna for herself.
Yep, we left Bloom. I never buy her right away. She’ll be there even after JAKKS stops making these dolls! 😛
I wanted my own Musa and Tecna. So after driving through what The Muse dubbed “Snobsville” — a neighborhood full of houses that looked like villas — we arrived at the Toys R Us near a place called The Cobb Galleria Centre.
My birthday luck must have kicked in because the only three Bloomix dolls they had were the ones I needed: Bloom, Musa, and Tecna! That also means someone bought the others! Awesome! More Winx fans! 😀
We grabbed Musa, Tecna, and a birthday balloon, then headed home.
- 1 Stella
- 1 Aisha
- 1 Flora
- 2 Musas
- 2 Tecnas
The Bloomix collection’s okay. Yeah, they’re not that accurate, but they’re pretty for what they are. They look a lot nicer in person than in photos!
Flora and Stella are two of my favorites. Their outfits look a bit more correct than the others’, and their wings are gorgeous! (Not sure why, but my Stella’s wings are stiff and don’t flap well. I’ll have to email JAKKS about that. But I still like her. 🙂 )
My hunt’s not over yet! I still need Bloom and another Stella, Flora, and Aisha. When my Toys R Us stores have them (and I have the money 😛 ), I’ll look again!
