Anyway, with that information in mind, you can imagine my excitement when I found this at Target yesterday:
Thrilling, really-it's a Target gift card with a Lego set right there. The very best part is that the Legos really are free. The only charge is what you put on the gift card, so the Lego set is a bonus! I grabbed it, stuck it in the cart with all good intentions of putting it in my son's stocking and honestly, patting myself on the back a bit. Score!! cool Lego stocking stuffer, right??
Not so much. Here begins the PSA. If you purchase this really cool gift card (the little plastic box is actually the gift card-cool!) Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT leave the gift card on the counter, completely visible, right next to the sink. Because, if you do, when your Lego kid comes home and you tell him to wash his hands right away, the Lego gift card will be RIGHT THERE!!!
He was totally excited and did have fun putting together "Bullseye" the little white Target dog, but yeah, not so much for the stocking stuffer. Oh, well... Maybe someone can learn from my mistake. Here is what it will look like when it's finished (hopefully, for you on Christmas morning)
