Black Friday Loot

Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. The stores usually open at the stroke of midnight. But in recent years, most major retailers have opened even earlier than midnight for Black Friday.

I was pretty pumped up for my first ever Black Friday. We starting snooping over the internet for Black Friday Deals and decided on specific retailers.

 We headed down to Queens Place. Our first stop was at Target. It opens on Thursday at 8pm. We arrived slightly earlier than 7.30pm. Despite our 30 mins advantage, we were not first in line, there was already a massive queue right in front of us.

I spend a bulk of my time at the camera section and picked out 2 cameras for the kids.

From the look of it, they totally adored the early chirtmas present.

My verdict of Black Friday?
I think it is highly over-rated. I would rather shop online, since the deals are mostly similar. And would only queue and freeze my butts out for worthy doorbusters.

Things to do with kids in NYC: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2013

We sort of planned this holiday to coincide with Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2013. I’ve heard so much about it and hence want to put it under my “been there, done that” checklist.

The weather was exceptionally chilly. The crowd was madness! The kids couldn’t see much of the parade except get squashed in between butts.

Perhaps, visiting the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade 2013 with kids wasn’t such a great idea!

But on a brighter note, I’ve caught an Awesome picture of Papa Smurf.

So for now, that is been there, done that and NEVER doing it again!

Things to do with kids in NYC: Toy’r’Us Time Square

Even at the age of 33
I am marvelled when I walked into Toy”r”Us in Time Square New York!
I could hear my brain silently singing
I don’t wanna grow up…
I’m a Toy”r”Us Kid… Kid… Kid!

Other than toys, the 110,000 square feet super toy store also boast many other attractions, such as the 60-foot Ferris wheel and the animated life-sized T-Rex dinosaur.

Toys“R”Us Times Square is a “must see” destination
for kids of all ages and for those young at heart.
