A Kid’s Lovey and eBay

June 4, 2008

For those of you who are eBay sellers, please give a momma a break!! I know you’ve all been through it, your precious little one latches on to one particular toy and it becomes the designated “lovey.” So in vain you try to find a replacement and there are none to be found…except on eBay.

You are desperate, so you actually consider spending $25 {plus shipping} for a little toy that probably cost around $8 the fist time you bought one. Actually you probably received it as a gift and can only guess as to where it was purchased, but you assume the cost was only around $8.

So my plea to eBayers everywhere is to cut a momma some slack. You know we need at least one back up, please, please don’t take advantage of us in our time of need. Please be a little more reasonable and think how you’d feel if it was your kid who has determined that the little green security blanket is the best toy in the world.

I am debating still whether or not to post this, I don’t want you all {all 10 of you readers} to run out and try to outbid me on one reasonable lovey replacement that I have found. But in the off chance that someone has one lying around that they want to send to me, here is the object of the Little One’s desires:

    I bought one on eBay for $16 yesterday. UGH!
    I know they were about $8 at Wal*Mart four years ago!

    Wow! That’s pricey for a little lovey cloth, but when it comes to kids and our sanity I don’t think there is a pricetag we can put on that. I’d pay $16 for a decent night’s sleep too.
