MISFIT TOYS: BOO


Misfit Toy Stats
Name - Boo
Type - Unwanted
Age - 4 years
Origin - Manufactured
Height - 5"
Demeanor - Bouncy

Our tenth misfit toy sure is a spiffy dresser. Since Boo looks sharp wearing his green bow tie, I was surprised he was so unwanted at the Hobby Lobby! A couple of years ago, the first lady of Neato Coolville and I were walking through the craft store checking out the Christmas decorations. I noticed the store still had a few Halloween things leftover on clearance. Everything was 90% off. At that "almost free" price, the shelves were practically empty. Only things left were a few plastic pumpkin pails and sitting on a shelf all by himself, was Boo. I always like a little Halloween with my Christmas and so I picked him up and intended to buy him. Then I noticed he was scratched and dented. I set him down and went back looking at Christmas decorations. I didn't need a dented up Halloween ghost. Needless to say, I guess I felt sorry for the spring loaded bouncy ghost toy and bought the old chap.     


Ever since I brought him home, Boo can't stop bouncing. I guess he was happy to finally be wanted.


We're almost to number twelve, but first we'll look at number eleven tomorrow.

Haha, Boo is my favorite! Whenever I find discounted toys that are damaged I'll ask the checkout clerk if I can get another discount. 9 times out of 10 they'll give it to me for free!

Great find, I look forward to future Misfit Toys cards in the future.
