I love the Olympic Mascots. Ever since they were released over 2 years ago I've been seeing their merchandise for sale and working hard to resist. The most comprehensive collection is sold at The Bay and Zellers. They sell tons of things including pins.

So where to get Olympic Mascot stuff for cheap?
Well, I've been going to McDonald's so often it's making me sick. But I am on a mission to collect all of the Olympic Mascot toys so it's worth the extra trips. So far this is our lineup

|Miga figure skating twirls when rolled|
|Quatchi ski jumping moves up/down when rolled|
|Such a funny angle for the ski jump|

I'm missing the last two - Quatchi goalie and Quatchi luge. I think the goalie will be hard to find considering it's our national obsession. Won't hurt to keep looking...
Speaking of looking, I was staring at the McDonalds display I noticed something that I know won't end up as a toy.

For those of you summer sports people, Miga is doing skeleton which is like luge but face first.
Doubtful that McDonald's will make a toy where you can slam Miga's face straight into something but if they made it I would want to collect it too.
On a local note, I found the cheapest price so far for Olympic Mascot plush with red mittens.

Save-On Foods has them for $9.99 with your Save-On Card. Better than the $16 minimum I've seen everywhere else.
Okay, lastly, let's see what Mini-Edward got up to today.
