Balloon Pets

I was wandering in Mid Valley this afternoon as I'm on half day leave. There are so many children toys & books fair in conjunction with the school holiday, it's definitely a good place for parents & kids to drop by & shop, if they don't mind the traffic jam & big crowd.

Check out for some of the fairs & activities here

In one of the fair held by MegaKidz at Center Court, I saw these cute "Balloon Pets".


I'm sure these "Balloon Pets" will capture the kids' interest, but when I look at the price, each of these pets cost RM42.90 and for the Dinosaurs & Hello Kitty (is this also a pet??), it'll cost RM55.90, not cheap huh? Well I'm not sure about the other parents but it's definitely not something that I'm willing to spend for my kids.
