Anyone seen Cranium Hullabaloo in shops or online?

Cranium Hullabaloo has been recommended very highly and would really like it for DD1 (4.6) but I can't find it anywhere. Amazon has one second hand but quality is only 'acceptable' and the instructions are missing.

It's not listed on Hasbro, the manufacturer's website either.

Has anyone seen it anywhere?

They have cranium junior - not sure if it's the same thing - at Mail order express

Thanks, but I think Cranium Hullabaloo is a different one - from 4 years. It's got an electronic unit that shouts out commands so it's suitable for pre-reading age kids. I wouldn't have heard about the flipping thing if I didn't come on here grin.

I think I've just answered my own thread. Rang an independent retailer and it looks like the old Cranium manufacturer has been bought out by Hasbro and Hullabaloo has been discontinued. Bugger.

Oh what a shame. It has been one of the most consistently used toys in our house for 4+ years, and is brought out every time friends come round.

ebay maybe?

Gah! TK Maxx! Have just rung my local one and they're ringing me back.

Ah, that's a shame - I have just given DD's Hullabaloo away s she has started to outgrow it - she's 8y and hs loved it over the past few years.

Our Sheffield TK Maxx often have it in.

I've been looking out for it too as it has also been recommended to me - nearest TK Maxx is in Bristol so I may check there next week. What a shame it has been discontinued if it is so good!

Hulababy - Aw, never mind, thanks. DP works in Sheffield so will send him in to town.
