Sophie bandwagon

...the giraffe that is. I've seen this all over the 'net and have read numerous articles and blog posts about it. Of course, being the rookie mom that I am, I jump on bandwagons easily. I mean how can the internet give me the wrong information, right? Ha!

I saw Sophie go on BabyEarth's hourly special on Friday. It went down to as low as $10-something but with shipping it really came out to be around $17. Still cheaper than most online retailers but my frugal self couldn't justify it. I visit this site regularly to see what deals they have on an hourly basis 'cause I always feel that Kayla needs something. Of course I missed out on the deal 'cause I waited too long. This is probably the 5th item I've missed out on 'cause I wait for the price to go down further.

Anyway, I caved and bought Sophie on Amazon yesterday. I signed up for the Amazon Prime 30-day free trial and I received 2-day shipping for free. I still paid the regular $18 but I guess that's okay. How can one really resist the cute pictures of all these babies gnawing on cute little Sophie?? I already know that Kayla will enjoy Sophie - I mean she only tries to put everything her little hands can get to in her mouth and every review I've read about Sophie has been great.

Am I the only one who jumps on baby-related bandwagons or any bandwagon for that matter?
