    I did that for those zhu zhu pets at Toys R US. There were over a dozen people in line, I was 4th in line and had been in line for a couple hours. Right before they opened the manager came out and said they only had a small amount and it was a limit of 2 per person. Sadly the ones at the end of the line were able to get any.

    I do all of my shopping for Christmas online. I can't handle long lineups or crowds.

    I hate being in crowds so it is always a nightmare but I very distinctly remember having to catch 3 different buses to get to the last shop in South Wales that had a Ben 10 Omnitrix......it took me nearly 2 hours but I got it and made his Xmas.

    I did the same a few years ago too - to a different town - to get my daughter a sing a long Elsa doll. Bus trip in total was about an hour and a half but it was worth every second to see her face christmas morning.

    I buy online now!
