My Life As never ceases to amaze me with the new items they keep coming out with, and the Egg Chair is no exception! I wasn’t really planning on buying it, but one day while buying Christmas presents at my local Walmart, I noticed they only had one. Hmmm…and it was marked down to $10!!! Regular retail on this is $19.94, not sure why it was already marked down, but at that price, how could I say no?!
I thought the egg chair that American Girl came out with for Julie was very cute, but $100…uh, no. Lucky for me, I still have $90 in my pocket to spend on something else! And no biggie that it doesn’t have a stool, easy enough to make from an empty peanut can. And I could care less about being able to play music through it, that’s what I have a bluetooth speaker for.
The packaging on mine was a little dinged up, but not horrible. I’m wondering if it was marked down because they didn’t actually sell this item at my Walmart (despite being a Super Walmart). They didn’t sell ANY of the special items that came out over the holiday at ours which was massively disappointing. So much for SUPER.
It came out of the package super easy–there were two vinyl straps holding it in place and then I had to cut off the plastic things that held the sticker sheet in place. Easy peasy. I haven’t decided if I’m going to put the stickers on it or not.
I like that there is this grip type thing to hold the cushion in place so it doesn’t fall out of the chair. I’m not sure if you can actually get the cushion out or not though, I didn’t mess around with it enough to find out.
Cassandra spotted it immediately! She begged me to let her try it out.
Perfect fit!! She begged me to let her put it in her room, but I’m not sure it’s going to fit. I told her we’d have to see. She might have to give up something.
I rate this item an A+++! Hopefully there are still some of them floating around out there somewhere, I noticed when I checked the Walmart website, they were showing as sold out. My Life As is doing such a fantastic job with their new releases, I can’t wait to see what else they come up with!
