Did anyone check out the Peanuts® Christmas Dance Party? They're made of plastic but supposed to look like tin toys.

Here's the discounted version sold one piece at a time, $15.95 w/purchase:

The black spotlights can be purchased separately for $12.95:

What do you think?

I thought it was adorable. It really does look like tin. I had to tap on it with a fingernail to be sure. The spotlights are a great touch. However, it is huge and I have no room for this set. The sound on it was fantastic.

I took one out of the box to inspect and it did look pretty sweet. It's just too much for me though because it's always the same characters.

I think I'm going to pass. If the ornaments were tin, I might have gotten them.

Here's a link with a video of them - (they really are cute)...

I was totally fooled by them. I would have sworn they were tin. It took a fellow ornament club member pointing out to me that they were not tin. Even then I walked over, picked one up, and tapped it to make sure. LOL

I, too, had to tap on one to make sure it wasn't tin. Cute but too big and too expensive.

No one was buying that I saw @ the one store I went to on Saturday. They were all behind the counter up high on shelf and didn't even see a display of them. Corporate store.

I think there were 2 in the local store here. I believe they sold one of them. They are very cute, but I am still trying to talk myself out of them.

I think they would look great in the Moms room at the Nursing Home. But there just is no room for things like this. She has a shared room and has less space than her roommate due to where the toilet is located.

I did not think I would like them but thought they were much cuter in person. I did not end up buying them as I have a feeling I will be able to find them after Christmas. Maybe it was just my store but I did not think the music was very loud.

I like the quirky dance moves taken from the rehearsal scene in “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” I, too, wish they were made of actual metal, and they do seem so much bigger than previous continuity sets. I saw both versions in the store and the repaint set looks much better to me. The standard set has green bases with flat black designs while the repaint set has red bases with multi-color designs.

I saw them at our store during debut and didn't really care for them. I honestly don't think any were sold. I'm going to hold out and see if I can get them after Christmas

The lady ahead of me, Saturday, walked out with two boxed sets. So, I guess some will sell.

My mom bought the collector's set for 40% off because her local store put out the set before the September coupon expired.
