They Upped the Price of the S.I.S. Baby Phat Dolls!




I decided to check the availability of stock on the SIS Baby Phat dolls at ToyCountry.com whose initial price had been $11.97.  The dolls were out of stock there when I first mentioned them in a previous blog post.

Today, the dolls are $19.99 at ToyCountry.com!  I was about to email them to inquire about the price hike before I saw the link which "explains" why the price is higher than the suggested retail price. 

Go see:  http://www.toycountry.com/store/home.php (enter:  so in style barbie baby phat in their search box).

So if you don't mind paying $19.99 x 4, you'll "enjoy" free shipping since purchases of $50 and up are shipped free.  Or, you might just want to wait it out and find the dolls locally.

  1. Hmmmm, I didn't really understand the explanation, but it doesn't matter since I was going to purchase locally. Did you understand it?

    1. Hi Vanessa,

      I stopped reading the explanation for the price hike after the first few sentences when I determined it is a basically a bunch of gibberish malarkey.

  2. Thanks for the link. I think they were trying to say that it is not their choice but the company that lists on the site. I will just wait and go to target or toys r us.

    1. Hi Male Doll World. Just thought I'd mention that on every product I've compared, Target ALWAYS comes out at a better price than Walmart's or TOYS R US. In addition, if you have a Target "red" card (credit card) - you always get a 5% discount on everything at checkout.

  3. I cant get that link to open and neither will it open when I just google the company. Their site must be down.

    I didn't want to pay $11.99 or Target's $12.99 much less $19.99! I don't have a single Grace and I was looking at this one very hard. Since she is articulatedI just might get her - using fair means, not foul, like I did before. *feeling pious*

    1. I wonder what happened to their site, Muff. It was up and running earlier today.

      I hope you find Grace. I was not able to find her locally. I think her pictures are stunning.

    2. Debbie - Grace was one of the four dolls I found at Target. Where are you located?

    3. I am in TX, Fiery Dragon Lady. The Target near me seems to always get stock in sluggishly, but I'll keep checking. Grace will eventually show up. I want another Kara, too, but it will be a gift fors someone. I'll get them... just have to exercise patience.

  4. Hopefully, no one will pay that price and they will be forced to reduce them.

    1. Dear Georgia Girl - after reading the explanation from TOY COUNTRY about the rip-off price way higher than the list price, it appears that TOY COUNTRY is nothing more than another version of eBay where people are reselling as third parties after buying their items wherever. You need to go directly to the same source - either a Target or even to Mattel directly where you can buy many, many items which are so hard to get. Mattel often runs sales or offers deals and their shipping is quick and very reasonable. Hope this helps!

  5. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I just love your blog - your tips and news are so excellent - thanks so much for all the information. You got me excited about these SIS dolls and, coincidentally, I was at my local Target this afternoon and got SO lucky! I was able to buy all four dolls and the price was right!
