Hello folks! I was browsing Happy Places toys when I discovered they have released Disney Princess version. I think it’s a must buy!!! It’s super cute!

First off, we have Disney Happy Places Happy Townhouse Playset.

Disney Princess Happy Places Sweet Dreams Theme Pack – Cinderella
Disney Princess Happy Places Dining Theme Pack – Belle
Disney Princess Happy Places Waffle Kitchen Theme Pack – Minnie Mouse
Disney Princess Happy Places Cupcake Kitchen Theme Pack – Minnie Mouse
Disney Princess Happy Places Vanity Theme Pack – Cinderella

And after you complete these play sets, you might want to consider adding some more furniture through the blind bags.

Yup, I’m saving up for these toys. Currently, ToysRUs is pricing the Townhouse at $19.99, same size Townhouse in Happy Places costs around Php1,499. The theme packs are priced at $16.99, add-on theme packs in Happy Places cost Php999. And the blind bags for Happy Places would be around Php 149. Please note that the prices are estimates, I’ll update the price once they are here in the Philippines. In the meantime, start saving up….

Sharing other finds in MIBF as per my in-laws loot.

Now, other interesting things we saw in the book fair and S Maison Fully Booked

Read Full Post »

It’s the first time that I’ve used a Fully Booked ticket as my entrance ticket. I was there from the opening till almost closing and I’m quite happy with my haul.


Having 2 floors for the book fair was exhausting but fun. You need to strategically plan the booths you want to visit. As it seems impossible to go through every booth in one day.


I didn’t see any Chinese book this year, I was looking forward to find some Chinese workbook for Edward. Ground floor has tons of school books and religious books. I’ve skipped a lot of the booths.

As soon as I’ve entered the event, Abiva was there, I was able to haul 9 workbooks for Edward. Php 30 for each of the books. DSC09804

Afterwhich I went to Learning is Fun, crowd was starting to pile up when I got there. I managed to get some workbooks for Php 25. I’m quite happy with the 365 Stories book (Php 275) and the Cars 3 book (Php 250).  The mini coloring book is Php 50.DSC09797

I then went to the second floor to check out the Children’s book. My first stop of course is Adarna. I’ve looked through their Bargain pile and got some books to add to my collection at Php 35. Regional Profiles is at Php 250. Filipino Food and Guardians of Traditions Php 50 each. And a set of book and worksheet for Php 99. Initially, I only got a few story book but before we left second floor. I browsed through the Bargain pile and saw new books.DSC09801

The Learning is Fun booth at the Second floor has limited selection but I was able to get 2 books at Php 100 each. DSC09802

I got a board game, Quartex (Php 720) from Mindwerks. The owner and I played a demo game. It was fun. I think Edward would like it. She also offered Ravensburg Puzzle. I got the Cars one for Php 350. It’s a good bargain as I normally buy Ravensburg Puzzle for Usd 10. DSC09795

I got a Chikiting books for Php 60. The story seems interesting.DSC09809

Lampara was having a book signing session so we have decided to get the books. We asked the sales person if they have a discount, they said “no, everything is regular price” After we paid, we saw an ad saying if you have an app, and show it to the cashier, you will get 20% off. I was annoyed with the sales person. We paid Php 84.75 for each of the book when we could have save Php 16.95 each. Argh! DSC09868

I got myself a pig pen (Php 40) and 2 mechanical pencils (Php 25 each) at New Manila Stationery. One 0.5MM and one 0.7MM.DSC09814

Next we dropped by Pilot and I bought pastel markers for Php 36.25 each, until now, I don’t know why I bought them. They are cute and erasable. Need to find a purpose for it. They also have a promo that you would get a mechanical lead for free when you buy a mechanical pencil. I got one for Php 54.


After our quick lunch break, we drop by C&E. It was a hassle to shop here. There was no price tag in the books. Instead, they have indicated the discount. The discount went as high as 90%. We noticed that some of the customers would just asked for the price in the cashier. Hence the line for payment was very long. Beside the booth, there’s an activity area where you can get GC for the books. We saw GC for Php 200, 300 and 400.


We then went to National Bookstore, same as last year, there was no bargain pile. The books I got were at 20% discount.DSC09805

Last stop is Fully Booked, if your purchase reached Php 3,000, you can get a Fully Booked discount card for free. Items are marked at 20% off as well. I’ve got the compilation for Step into Reading as it’s cheaper. The book costs Php 368 less 20% for 5 or 6 stories. Depending on the character.DSC09806

Husband’s stash for this year. Initially he wanted the Sakura’s story as well but as it wasn’t a graphic novel, he chose Sasuke’s Story instead. It’s a novel folks!DSC09799

Since we didn’t find some of the books in MIBF, we went to S Maison Fully Booked to get the books we have reserved last Sunday. They are also having a sale at 20% off.DSC09807

There you go folks… my 2017 MIBF Haul. Missing from the haul are 3 books which I forgot to get from my Sister in Law and the Lampara books which I completely forgot to add in the complete stash. DSC09816

Happy MIBF Folks!

Hello Folks! Happy 2017! As for my new year’s resolution. I’ll try to stay away from toys and online shopping as much as possible. Haha. However, I’ve stumbled upon Disney Store and saw the new products for 2017. Now, I’m regretting to have such new year’s resolution.

Here are some of the things that captured my attention.

Musical Tsum Tsum – I love Tsum Tsum, the game and the plush, and they have came up with Musical Ones. And started off with Ariel. This is for $14.95.

Animators’ Collection -Belle Micro Playset – This toy costs $19.95 and the detail is fantastic. I love to have my own set.  The set is also available for Frozen and Tinkerbell.


Animators’ Disney Doll Collection – 15 Dolls for $119.95. I think I am drawn to Animators’ Collection Series Merchandise. The attention to detail is really good. I can’t help but be fascinated.


Animators’ Collection Deluxe Figure – This set costs $24.95 and I love Ariel in this. This one, I want to convert into Christmas Ornaments.

Hold on… they have actually released an Ornament version of the figure for $59.95.

Tea Time – Plates for $14.95 and Cups for $7.95
