Yesterday was the Big Bad Wolf Books Sale Preview Day. Went there very early in the morning. Passed some preview passes to some friends there. Then waited for Mr Wolf to open up its doors.
First impression when got into the sale. Hmmm...seems smaller. Venture further in. Uiks...upstairs Food Court not there anymore nor is the Playland. (no babysitting service liao)
Now they have a Cafe with Christmas decoration on the ground floor for people to rest their feet and have a bite to eat.
Mamarazzi kept commenting this year sale seems to be smaller. Floor space taken up by the Cafe and Premium Zone but but but see this! The receipt when unrolled is taller than me leh!
Bad Mr Wolf and the Wolf Gang. They must be conspiring with Mamarazzi. She is trying to get me to read more Chinese books . Mr Wolf brought in loads of Chinese books.
Don't worry. Majority of BBW books is still English books but just that Mamarazzi managed to grab so many Chinese books instead of English books for me .
And the Chinese books were so cheap some more leh.
Babies, toddlers and young children would be very happy coz there are loads and loads of activities, play a sound books , books with toys and cute stuffs for them. Parents! beware. Your pockets will be empty if you bring along your kids as they will wanna ask you to buy everything within their sight.
Here are my haul . Tom and Jerry RM3 each
Tom and Jerry RM3 each
The four books RM5 each while Popeye RM6
Thicker Tom and Jerry RM8
Looney Tunes RM5 each and the other is RM6
She even bought Chinese Doremon comic for herself...RM2 each only and also joining in the coloring fad .
There are loads of Colouring Books for adults with price ranges between RM6 to RM25. She bought this Flowering Pattern book for RM8 only.
Nevertheless, she bought some English comics for me too
Instead, she found this for me. It's RM10 only with book and audio CD.
Thanks to D'leene for finding Big Nate book for me
Found some Archie related books.
Mamarazzi can't resist grabbing this. "Harry POTTY and the Deathly BORING".
Lego vs Mixels RM6 members price and this super cool Science kit is for me
But I didn't want those. Instead I choose this. Also something like Lego . RM15 only
Since I chose that, Mamarazzi decided to get me this too. Also RM15.
Some books that friends "tumpang" Mamarazzi to buy
Looks like her friends are into colouring.
Except for one who is into Minions.
Two notes pads for me.
Saw in BBW that they have the Box set with 2 or 3 types of different covers style. Too bad Mamarazzi have the books already . Else she would have taken one home.
This year preview feels somewhat a bit sober as compared to previous years. Many book prices seems to have gone up by around RM2 thanks to our current economy. Can't afford to buy diamond ring and pricey handbags but at least still can get free plastic bags from BBW la.
Hopefully next year Mr Wolf and gang will bring back the Food Court upstairs. At least we will have a choice whether to eat RM4 bun/RM6 Egg Mayo sandwich or to choose to eat Pizza with a soft drink for just RM7.90. One Egg Mayo Sandwich at the Cafe, can buy 2 Tom & Jerry books leh.
On the positive side, Mamarazzi is very happy that Mr Wolf have introduced Members Discount and yellow stickers items (for extra discount ).
Mamarazzi no need to go through the hassle of going to separate counters to get discount vouchers. And then got into the sale to spend more in order to use the discount vouchers.
This time, the cashiers straight away offset the amount when paying. Thank you for the extra discount!
