Do you Woot??

For a while now, I've been following "wootkids" on Twitter. Thanks to a friend who introduced me to "wooting" on If you are still thoroughly confused, let me explain. Kids.Woot sells stuff for kids. By “stuff” I mean everything from carseats to apparel to educational toys & games to non-educational toys & games – all the accoutrement's that make your little bundle of joy so damn expensive. They offer a new deal every night at midnight Central time, in limited quantities at a discounted price. Only one product is available at any given time. If you want one, you click that big orange button that says I WANT ONE. When it sells out, or the next midnight rolls around, that deal is gone. No backorders, no rainchecks, no do-overs. Shipping is always $5. And no, they don’t tell you what the next product is. Like they say "What fun would that be?". Their product descriptions are usually unflattering, bizarre or ridiculous. Which is quite hilarious!
Last night as I looked at my tweets, I noticed the nightly "twoot" and I was so shocked to see what was being offered! It was the "Lil' Explorer's Carnival" Ball Zone! I purchased this ball pit for Nate's carnival party, back in March. It was such a hit with the younger children and they enjoyed it so much, that it was destroyed! LOL! So of course I was a little bummed out about it, because I was hoping to keep it for Nate to enjoy on his own. This Ball Zone retails for about $99, but I purchased it for $69.99. To my delight, kids.woot was offering it for $19.99!! I can't tell you how excited I was to see that, at such a low price and of course I jumped on that "I WANT ONE" button! I can't wait for it's arrival and I definitely can't wait for Nate to play in it! I think he'll love it more now that he's older. I encourage all of you to WOOT!
