My kid got the coolest Christmas present ever from her grandparents and it’s NO THANKS TO TARGET.

Target, you can kiss my rear. You didn’t have Rose Petal Cottage when I needed it. Kmart did. You didn’t want to honor the rain check you gave me for Rose Petal Cottage. Kmart did. And Target? Your customer service people are royal BUNGHOLES. Kmart had nice people. Nice people without a hint of bunghole.

Target, I no longer love you. We’re through. Over. Done. It’s not easy. But it’s the truth. I only give my business to nice people who honor their rain checks, not bungholes who involve themselves with false advertising.


So without further adieu, the coolest moosh toy EVER.

  7. Sweet kitchen! Emily got one too, and spends HOURS in there.

    *Praises God*

    Sorry about Target, though. Since we don’t have them in Canada, I get all giddy when I get to go to one ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Ya’ll had me hooked at “spends HOURS in there.”

    I thought about getting one, I mean Santa thought about getting one for my youngest.

    She does have her 3rd birthday coming up in March. Hmmm.

    p.s. those pictures are adorable!

  9. My daughter got one for Christmas and loves it! My seven year old son even gets in there with her and plays. I, however, ordered mine from Amazon for only 60 bucks shipped.I didn’t even get out of my pajamas to get it. HA! AMAZON KICKS K-MARTS BUTT! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If they are bungholios, though that sucks.

  13. I thought K-mart went out of business??? At least it did around here.
    But I totally agree, Target and all their customer “service” sucks. Like their return policies? Basically mean you can’t return anything. And they don’t bother to share that with new mommies who are registering there.
    Stupid corporate wussies who don’t care about people.

  16. Very cute! Soon she’ll have all the deluxe kitchen appliances too. BTW my friend’s daughter started playing house and stuck her PLASTIC play-food in the REAL oven. When my friend turned her oven on to pre-heat sick burning smell filled whole house.
    Something to look forward to….

  17. Someone once said that Target was run by the French…and that they don’t support our troops. Is this true? Now you tell me they don’t take rain checks. My heart hurts. So torn.

    Love the little kitchen set and the cozy cottage. Jealous.

  19. Everytime I end up at Kmart as a last resort I think, hmmm why don’t I come here more often? Last year I got my winter-theme towels and table cloth there and they have lasted a lot better than the monkey-themed ones from Meijer.

  20. Okay, this is the second time I’ve tried to comment and I’m not getting any love (also commented yesterday to recommend The Giant’s House, by Elizabeth McCracken. I think you’d really enjoy it!).
    So, what I said was: holy cow! All of that stuff fits in that teeny cottage? Awe.Some!

  21. I just love it when people fall out of love with Target. Their customer service is non-existent. I hate it there.

  27. Do they make those in adult sizes? I want one, but my big butt won’t fit through the door.

    You are brave to swear off Target. Target is my friend. Target is all I have. I could not live if Target betrayed me. (Seriously, my choices are Target and Walmart. Who do you think is gonna win that one?)

    Megan’s last blog post..Kraft is my new best friend.

  28. Olivia got one for Christmas too. We still need to gather up the sink, and the washer and dryer. I stalked Target to get one- it was the only way. Worth it though eh?

  29. I second the Target-hatred. Not only are they income-suckers, but they have HORRIBLE customer service and a wretched return policy! I tried to return a duplicate glo-worm gift we received after our baby was born – I did not have a gift receipt (gasp!) but I printed my registry so they knew I had one…I was told that I had used up my two returns w/out a receipt (TWO…for the whole year!) and that they couldn’t return it w/my registry b/c it wasn’t ON my registry. duh…if it was on my registry that would indicate I wanted one, right? UGH! Rose Petal Cottage envy! how much room does that take up? (why I dismissed it for Christmas)

  30. I love target. I would marry it.

  33. KMart over Target? Huh. That’s just weird.

    I found the Rose Petal Cottage that is residing in my living room at WalMart on clearance for less than half price. I hate WalMart with all my soul, but it will get to live another day for having that bargain.

  34. What a cute little play house!
    KMart? I didn’t even know those were still around, huh. Wow. This is the 2nd Target bashing post that I’ve seen in the last week. Wow.
    Hope Moosh appreciates what Mommy had to go through ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Maggie got that too- and it already BROKE.

    However, my children are kinda rough. They tipped it on it’s side and crawled inside! And even though they got in trouble- they did it again and again and now I am going to have to use duct tape to hold it up- but we are taking a few weeks off so they get that stupid idea out of their heads.

    the moosh is gorgeous.

  43. You are right. She is so like you. Way to go, working in the kitchen! She is adorable!

  44. this is the kind of thing that makes me wish i had a girl…and why we bought our boys a kitchen for Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜‰
