*Opening* Julie's Car Wash Set (VW BUG)

*SCREAMS*

Can you B E L I E V E it?????

My husband surprised me. He has known that I have had my heart set on the VW for a long time, especially since we saw it 50% off at Wilmot.


 So he bought it for me!!!

The video will explain everything. Here is the website description.

This set includes everything Julie needs for a super fundraiser:
  • A 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle car—first in line to be spiffed up! It's big enough to fit two American Girl dolls, and features lots of authentic details: sky-blue paint with a white interior, a lowered canvas top, a hood and trunk that open, plus a "radio" that plays '70s songs, a horn that honks, working headlights, rolling wheels, and an engine that "runs" at the push of a button.
  • Julie can "wash" the car with a yellow bucket, window washer, bottle of faux soap, and two cloth towels.
  • Includes a "Save the Eagles Car Wash" sign to display
Car dimensions: L: 36" x H: 14½" x W: 14" 



 *CAUTION* viewers: expect screams, lots of noise and craziness as I open this VW bug. Please excuse my inner child.

  4. Rhonda, I am soooooo happy for you!!!!! You have wanted this for such a long time! Your husband was so WONDERFUL to surprise you with this. We had a VW Bug in the late 70's. I was always rolling back at stop signs. Glad we had it when we lived in Texas. I've driven in San Francisco and somehow got on the crookedest road in the U S and it's scarey. I'll bring the girls over later for a spin in your new VW.

  7. Awwww! I'm so so SO happy for you!!! There's always that one special piece! Mine growing up was Samantha's trunk. I never asked for it though because of the price. I would have responded the same way as you if I had gotten it. Thank you for sharing!
