Just at Dollarama Newmarket and picked up Little Live Pets Frog toy, normally $30+ price point (Walmart is selling for $44USD.)

Best part it comes with batteries!! Makes a nice gift too.

UPDATE #1: This item was part of a recall (details below) unable to confirm the sale items are affected at this time. Will update on the one I purchased asap... turns out, the batteries were the worst part :(

*BIG THANKS and credit goes to silenthunder for pointing out the recall.


From: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-al ... 6r-eng.php

It's a third party seller not Walmart that's selling it for the inflated price. Another seller on Walmart has it for $28.99. Still a good deal if it's not recalled.

Sorry folks, I did not expect or see the recall for this when I did a quick search for the toy. It is the same toy.

I'd be surprised if they were included in the recall, but not worth the risk. Will be checking if mine was included and will update here fyi.

Yep.. I only saw the Lil Frog there though. There were about 5 on the shelf. My expert toy finder was quick to inform me that this toy was expensive like you mention, and sold at Walmart.
