New in the Box Magic Key Mansion

So was anyone else watching the new in the box Magic Key Mansion that was for sale on eBay this weekend? Final sale price: $250.99! Wow! I knew it would go for quite a bit since I've never actually seen a new in the box Mansion up for auction, but that was even more than I expected. If the winning bidder is out there reading this, I would love to hear from you. Did you find any surprises? Anything the Precious Places collecting community needs to know about? Let me know!

How it Snows in a Perfect World

There is one picture on the Precious Places Village Map that never fails to crack me up:

In all the land of Precious Places it is sunny and warm, except at the Ice Castle Skating Pond. There it never fails to be a perfect 32 degrees, so that Heather can practice her heart-shaped figure eights. But step a few steps beyond the pond, and you'll find Dad at Work mowing the lawn. Now isn't that nice?!

Precious Places TV Commercial Video

Thanks to Stephanie for alerting me to this youtube video of an old Precious Places TV commercial. Just seeing it makes me nostalgic, but also glad that my mom never let me get a perm in the 80s! Enjoy!
