Robin has an In Store Report for Canadian readers.
I don't know if this is something of interest to you and your readers, but I just noticed that there has been a price hike for the Our Generation toys at Mastermind Toys. Perhaps with Target leaving Canada--the only other Our Generation competitor--Mastermind Toys deemed it a good time to increase the prices. After all, they technically have the monopoly on this doll line in Canada once Target shuts its doors for good.
I was disappointed to see the price increase--especially as they have not just gone up a few cents--but they have skyrocketed by a few dollars, making some of the items a little less affordable then they once were. It was nice to be able to get a doll, extra outfit and shoes for less than $50, but now this is not possible with Our Generation. It doesn't look like any of the OG items are less than $10 now.
Here are a few examples of the price differences:
- Basic dolls have gone from $29.99 to $36.99
- Deluxe dolls from $49.99 to $59.99
- Deluxe doll outfits from $19.99 to $23.99
- Accessory sets and shoes from $9.99 to $12.99 ($13 is a bit too pricey for shoes, I think!)
- 14-inch foals from $27.99 to $34.99
These increases makes the other budget 18-inch My Life As (Walmart brand) line more appealing since both the dolls and the full-size horses are regularly $33. Outfits are $10 and shoes are $3 each.
