Ok, I'll just say it:  I HATE Toys R' Us.  I won't get into the reasons right now, but it suffices to say it takes a pretty good deal to get me to make myself enter their store.  Toys R' Us is smart enough to have the best deals valid in-store only.  Grrrr.....

TODAY only they have over 20 sets of LEGO for 50% off.  Not just the tiny ones, or the ones no one wants, but the big sets too!  I was able to pick up a $120 set for only $60, as well as a number of others.  

However, the ad came out online only this morning.  The store opened at 9:00 a.m.  I was there at 9:30, and the shelves were nearly bare of the sale LEGO sets.  There still are some great ones available.  If you are interested get there ASAP.  By late this afternoon it will be too late.  

Take a break from the summer heat and cure the "I'm-so-bored" blues at the same time.  Shoeplace and Showtime Cinemas is offering special showings of kid's movies for only $1 per person.  As an added bonus, you can say "yes" to the normally uber-expensive movie snacks with their $2.50 Kiddie Coke & Popcorn special.

This week's movie is "How to Train Your Dragon".   Next week "Megamind" will be showing (which really is an amusing flick).  Shows run at the East location on Tuesday mornings, in Newburgh, Connersville, Henderson, and Princeton on Wednesdays, and at the North location on Thursdays.  All films start at 9:30 a.m.
