Then this past weekend, I went back to Garden Ridge since I knew they were getting fall things in. I noticed they must have gotten a new supplier for the skeletons! But the shoulder & hip joints have this considerably sturdier stirrup-looking attachment and the seams on the bones were not split.
I am wanting to get another skelly this year - I think I may fork out the extra $20 and get the G.R. model! And of course I'd do an updated comparison of all 3.
I also couldn't pass up another blowmold! Frankie was actually too tall to stand on the back seat of my car and had to recline with his feet in my back. I know, smart people would have tossed him in the trunk or laid him down on the seat. But where is the fun in that???
