We are after a Minnie Mouse Precious Petal Baby Bouncer for our pregnant friend.

We have 6 weeks ish grin

Original Thread here

We cant seem to find it anywhere in the uk or anywhere that will post to the UK

Maybe one of you wonderful people would post it to PurplePillow cause you are so lovely grin

TrinityRhino Sun 29-Sep-13 17:50:22

TrinityRhino Sun 29-Sep-13 20:18:13

Bumping for lots of lovely helpful people grin

PurplePillow Sun 29-Sep-13 20:32:44

Unashamed bump grin

Bimblepops Sun 29-Sep-13 20:44:02

I'm off to NY in four weeks, is that any good to you?

Could probably get a friend in the US to buy it and then I can maybe bring it back or post it back when I'm there...

PurplePillow Sun 29-Sep-13 21:01:12

That's a fantastic offer Bimplepops grin can I let you know just incase we can get one a wee bit sooner? I really don't mean to sound ungrateful and I'm not I'm actually really touched that you would do that for me grin

Would you be allowed to bring it back with you? Don't want to make your trip harder grin

I'd be happy to order it for you, have it sent to my PO Box in the States (I live very close to the US border) and post it off for you.
I'm trustworthy - you can check with Chaos smile

laraeo Mon 30-Sep-13 01:19:30

I'm in the US, northern Virginia, and would be able to order one, no problem. Just let me know. smile

Jacksmania Mon 30-Sep-13 01:30:48

I think they went to sleep. smile
Well, two offers to help will make a nice surprise tomorrow morning flowers.

laraeo Mon 30-Sep-13 01:47:22

I do believe you're right! We're busy watching the Patriots and Falcons game. Go Pats!

SconeRhymesWithGone Mon 30-Sep-13 01:55:01

I can be back-up if needed. I live in Florida. I would be happy to help.

MooseBeTimeForSnow Mon 30-Sep-13 02:34:19

I can vouch for jacksmania. I'd have volunteered my services. I hope you can get this sorted smile

NatashaBee Mon 30-Sep-13 02:36:17

Sounds like you already have some offers, but I can help if not smile

PurplePillow Mon 30-Sep-13 09:24:23

Just back in from school run and wowgrin

So many kind offers grin

Can you pm me your name and addresses so I know where to post it to please and we can sort it out via that
Again thank you all
MN ROCKS grin

PurplePillow Mon 30-Sep-13 19:51:28

Hey guys, I got your pm's thank you

I would be happy for any of you to help me but what would be easiest for you as in who is closest to a burlingtons coat factory?

Also would it be easier for me to buy it and get it delivered to you and you post onto me or you buy and post and i transfer money via paypal?

thanks smile

SconeRhymesWithGone Mon 30-Sep-13 20:36:22

Purple, I am very close to a store; I just called them and they have two in stock. I am sending you another PM.

wibblyjelly Mon 30-Sep-13 20:42:44

laraeo Mon 30-Sep-13 22:17:11

It sounds like Minnie is taken care of / if not I'm 10 minutes from Burlington Coat Factory.
