When You Take a Toddler to Target

Whenever I’ve taken a toddler shopping with me, the toy aisle is always one of the first spots we hit. I find something with buttons, something that sings or lights up and let my little lady play with it as I get my other shopping done. At the end of our visit we travel back down the toy aisle, my kid says goodbye to whatever toy she was playing with and I say a silent “Bless you little toy for making my weekly shopping trip so much easier.” Rarely, if ever, do the toys come home with us. They’re only meant to be loved for however long it takes me to pick out the right kind of lettuce and find a good sale on cereal.

But sometimes plans change. Sometimes a toy is meant for more than just one shopping trip and today? We found that toy.

Yes, we said goodbye to the puppy as we dropped him off with all his other puppy friends, but you’d better believe I’ll be back sans children to purchase that little puppy for Santa to drop off to a certain puppy hugging little girl on Christmas Eve.

You can find the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy for $19.99 on and in Target stores. You can also find me singing “Head Shoulders Knees and Toes” on aisle 4.
