I know the yellow star F10 are but I don't think the F11 are (all the F11/F12 I've seen have been blue star).

I think what you're looking for is the Smithsonian GEM DIG toy. I swear I saw some, didn't know they were pennied out, saw it on a list or in a video somewhere, and now I can't find any. That's my memory anyway.

I have to agree with u. I remember seeing it posted as well. Every time I go in the store I get confused with what color dot it should be.

I went to Family Dollar and Dollar General today and neither store would let me buy anything that rang up at .01. They said it is against the law and that the product has to be destroyed. Is this not the case all over??

No, they were lying to you. There is no such law. Corporate policy is that they sell it to you. I'm told it's in the SOP according to corporate. According to the District Manager I talked to, stores have the option to either destroy the items or donate them. If items are left on the floor, they are to be sold under the "duty of good faith." However, many stores (and even some DMs) will tell you otherwise. I had one DM tell me all penny items were "defective" and a "safety hazard." The best bet is to call corporate when this happens. They will straighten it out for you.

If you don't mind me asking, Family Dollar has penny items!?!??!

They're just now putting out blue dot Christmas toys and clothes so I highly doubt all those will be pennied out.

I agree. I have noticed that yellow and blue are the new toy colors for Christmas.

Maybe the manager meant red dots. The red dots are back to school items and are on clearance now.
