The Dollar Spot in Target
has some cool things!
|I’m the first to admit to my very active Dollar Spot addiction. I even have convinced friends to help me in this addiction. Oh let’s be honest, I’ve even used my VegasFamilyEvents.com Facebook page to help now and then.
But this is an addiction I will hold onto. Where else can you find a kite that wont fall apart the day you buy it (even the more expensive plastic kites do this!), adorable character squirt guns that even toddlers can press the triggers on, and although not a “dollar” though still found IN the Dollar Spot….the super cool, no batteries needed, comes in 3 colors hand held mister?
Let’s start with this adorable kite. Firstly, it’s $1 – you’ve already won. I brought this home expecting it to either be impossible to put together (I’m direction challenged), fall apart the moment my kids take it out to fly it, or be missing parts. Well, none of that happened.
Please do not ask me why, but I brought all the kites outside to assemble. It wasn’t windy when I started, though Murphy’s Law took notice of my plan and jumped into action with spotty breezes teasing me with the want to go inside to finish but not really the need.
Each kite took less the 60 seconds to put together, seriously…one of my daughters is obsessed with some stop watch app on my phone. So I can really say that for a fact.
The girls spent about an hour running laps in our backyard, occasionally slamming into each other as they looked behind to see how high the kite had gone. I regret not getting this on video. The best part was when one of the girls would stop to see how far up the kite was to only have it dive bomb her. I laughed so hard I cried….the first dozen times at least.

The $2.50 Hand Held Mister. Comes in Black, Pink, Blue, and Green. No batteries needed (YAY!)
Our poor cat. He had no idea this was going to be tested mainly on him. I tried to warn him but you know cats, they know best. Okay, so I showed the twins where he was sun bathing….he was pretty smug about refusing to clear the patio as I brought these out. Guess I knew best, huh kitty?
The reservoir is pretty small, but if you have a water bottle with you or access to a water fountain, then you’ll be fine. But for a hike or long walk, it takes up too much room unless you have a stroller. I bought 3 of these and one was broken. Which I figured would be the case considering how cheap it was. But it just doesn’t seem cheaply made. Definitely worth the $2.50!
The cutest water guns EVER! For $1 each you just can’t complain. I bought one for each kiddo but could see in the bin that they’re are 5 different styles. These were easier to press then the regular guns we bought in bulk that really are shaped like guns. Being my husband is a gun smith we discourage any thing looking like a gun being treated as a toy.
Apparently these cute water toys can be used to water the plants:
Or used to refresh yourself after hard work in the garden:
Either way you use them, they’re a great buy for $1 each! Target’s Dollar Spot has some awesome deals, and some duds. I’ll happily share my finds!
My name is Danyelle Medina, I'm mother to three wonderful little girls. Once becoming a stay at home mom to my fraternal twin girls, I began joining playgroups and community programs to be the best parent I could be.
Hearing all too often, "There's nothing to do in Vegas for families." I made it my personal quest to share my extremely full social calendar with as many families as possible.
Excited to share all the great events and activities, I created a blog in 2008. The community reaction was not only amazing but fueled my desire to grow. In 2009 I created VegasFamilyEvents.com and haven't stopped sharing!
You may see me at events, talking into my phone as I video to share on Youtube for curious families, taking pictures, or whatever goofy thing I make my kids do for the sake of an article.....say Hi! I love meeting readers and hearing the great places you've found that we can share together.
Hope to see your around town!
