In Search of Bolt

My daughter is a huge Bolt fan (the Disney movie). It's a charming tale about a dog who is a superhero on a hit t.v. show but he doesn't know that he's on t.v. He thinks it is all real. When he is accidentally sent away from the studio and into the real world, things take an interesting turn as he meets Mittens the Streetwise Cat and Rhino the Hamster with the Napoleon complex. It's an adorable movie and of course, she's started to collect Bolt "stuff."

Amazingly enough, with Disney's penchant for marketing, it is hard to find anything. She has a few things, but most of it I had to find online. Her birthday is coming up soon and she really wants a Bolt rolling backpack. I mean, REALLY WANTS as in, "You don't get this, Mom, and I'm going to be mad for the rest of my childhood."

So I figured, no problem. I'll order it when her birthday gets a big closer.

Today I went online to see how much it was and got the shock of my life. They do not have it anymore.

I began a frantic search. Ebay. Even called a local Disney Store only to find they aren't there anymore (see how much I get to the mall?). Nothing. Nada. Zip. No Bolt rolling backpack.

As of this writing, I still do not have that backpack in my sights. Rene, bless her heart, has offered to look in her Disney Store for me in California. Anyone else want to take a shot? I would send you money! Lots and lots of money! (Ok, maybe not LOTS, but enough!)


  1. Our Disney store closed as well. See if you can find someone near Disneyworld in Florida or Land in California. I bet they still would have such in the downtown Disney shops.

  2. Sorry I can't help you out! It was a super cute movie, though! My kids loved it too (but they were more into that little hamster).

  3. Geez - that's unbelievably hard to find. I just did an online search, too!

    I'll check our Disney store, we've got one about 3 mins from my house. I'll let you know if I find it!

  4. Yikes! Good luck! My kids love love love bolt too! Jenni

  5. I get her attraction. We watched that movie again on our roadtrip, and it is so DOGgone good! ;) I think Rhino is my favorite part.

    Good luck! If I catch wind of one, I'll let you know.

  6. My kids saw Bolt without me. Guess I need to find some time to see it myself. I like most of the ones my kids do, so I'm sure it will be cute :D

  7. Oh no! If I get down to the Disney area I will look but we hardly ever go there.
    I remember when my daugter wanted this walking mechanical dog. I ordered if for Christmas from Penneys and wrapped it without looking in the box. WHen she opened it, it was another toy! UGH. Talk about sad!


I love to hear from you!
