I got them at Walmart for $4.96. Don't forget the batteries!
I got some too but they seem to blow backwards, did you try yours. Mine are weird. I think I will return them.
They blow backwards when the batteries are in backwards, check your batteries before you take them back. I did this and a couple other people on other threads too.
What? that seems really silly but I will try it.
Can I ask where in Walmart you found them? I was there yesterday, just for a quick trip, but didnt see them on a quick once through. I am going back next week, and would really like them for our trip at the end of the month. Thanks!
Anyone have any pictures of these fans?
I absolutely REFUSE to set foot in a WalMart and I'd like to find them someplace else (Walgreens, CVS, Target, Meijer, etc.)
In Walmart, I found them near the section where they sell portable fans for the house. I've also seen them in Rite Aid, in the seasonal section.
disney for 18.00 then found them at walmart for $5.00
Our Walmart here in Alabama had a huge bin of those spray bottle/fans and were priced at $1.00 each. When I got to the register they rang up for .50 (yes fifty cents). We ran back and got more!
Don't pack the fans with the batteries in them. I did that to save space (and so that I wouldn't forget the batteries) and they turned themselves on while in the suitcase. Got to WDW and they were dead!
Hey, it sounded like a good idea in my head!!
This is actually the most confusing part...finding them! I had to ask 3 people. Let me preface this by saying I am more of a Target girl than Walmart, in fact I had never been in this Walmart before up until the other day. Anyways, the first lady I asked was wearing that vest that said 'how may I help you' and then I asked her and she couldn't speak English...ummm ok so then I went to a gentleman who told me to look back in the toys or sporting goods section, he thought he saw them there. Once there, I couldn't find them so I asked another young man who worked there and he said 'Yeah I have them in a box in hardware, follow me'. Good thing I asked him because he had them behind a register in a box waiting to be taken out and put on the shelf. My best advice is to ask away once there, you never know where they will be...
Thanks for the tip, It worked! I don't know how it works, but it did!
I found mine in the paint section, right above the driveway sealer! How wierd. It was my second trip to Walmart (I hate shopping there!!) & saw on another thread to look in the paint/hardware section. They were $4.96 & we picked up some Disney stickers to decorate. I chose the plastic type of stickers I saw by the greeting cards hoping they may stick better than the paper type. We'll see- even if I have to go buy more it will be cheaper than the getting the $17 Disney ones.
I was just going to post that mine works backwards, but now that you say that I'll try switching the batteries! Thanks!!
i need to get 2 of these for our august trip but i saw none when i was there today
ill have to go back
I saw the fans at Walmart today in what is probably a seasonal aisle (this is a SuperWalmart). They had various fans and then I saw the water fans.
I bought one from Osco the day before (Jewel - Albertson's in some parts of the country). A little more in price by maybe a dollar or two but the same exact fan.
I saw an ad for Walgreen's today. I'm not sure if the circular ads are by parts of the country or not but the ad I saw had them on sale. Can't remember the exact price, but in the neighborhood of $5.99.
Good luck! I used mine yesterday while working in the yard. It was refreshing. I also used the neckband that has some kind of cooling agent in them and it worked fairly well as well (Walmart for $4).
Has anyone found the small ones onthe carabiner clip at Walmart? Someone posted about them awhile ago and I haven't been able to find them anywhere in our area!
I found one awhile back...I need two more and can't find them!
If anyone can get them, I need four...I will be happy to pay for them plus shipping of course!! It's better than paying $5 something plus shipping from an internet source!!
I posted this last week, but at the Disney Store I found the same size fans that Walmart carried that you all are talking about and they were $3.00. I bought 4 of them and my mom bought 2. I went there last night and there were still a few in the Clearance bins. It is cheaper than Walmart and has the plus of Mickey already on it!! It came with a lanyard strap.
