....at a not inflated price (is that too much to ask?!)

I looked last week, Hamleys had it. I dithered. Now they don't sad

I cannot find it on their online shop - the product code comes up woth nothing.

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 20:51:22

What price were you looking to buy it at? Amazon have it at £49.99

ChippyMinTurnAgainWhittington Tue 07-Dec-10 20:56:04

playmobil's own website?

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 20:57:59

It's £30 at Hamleys.

£50 is too much.

I think up to £40 would be ok.

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 20:58:30

Can't find it currently on Playmobil own website Chippy....

<hijack - I bought some racing sprouts today!>

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 20:59:05

I can't find it anywhere on their own website, even searching with the product code confused

pixmania have it for £40.87 but don't know how much delivery is.

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 21:01:51

Or Heritage gifts £41.00 again don't know delivery cost.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 21:03:32

This e-bay seller doesn't have much history, but it's a fab price here

Do you think it looks ok?

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 21:05:35

Looks ok to me - they have 100% +ve feedback, so should be ok.

ChippyMinTurnAgainWhittington Tue 07-Dec-10 21:08:07

I have sprout envy envy!!

Apologies, I thought you meant you'd looked on Hamleys online.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 21:08:17

That's what I want but I've not bought a lot on e-bay before so needed some other opinions - thanks!

Wish DH was here to offer his opinion - he's away with work until Friday, not very easy to contact by phone (well phoning him is easy, him actually answering is a different matter!) and hopelessly unreliable at looking at his e-mails!!

Think I might go for that one then.

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 21:10:20

I've bought on eBay quite a bit (including Playmobil) and I think even if someone hasn't been there long, if they have good feedback they are probably reliable. That would only be £40 inc delivery.

Lol at your sprout envy Chippy!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 21:13:51

I can't find it on heritage gifts - it just offers links to loads of other places blush

Am I doing something wrong?

BrianAndHisBalls Tue 07-Dec-10 21:14:41

I'm not sure I'd buy that one, they're in the Czech Republic, it may not get here on time.

SnowMuchToBits Tue 07-Dec-10 21:25:35

If you Google Heritage gifts, then click on Toys. Then click on Playmobil. Then click on Playmobil remote controls, you should find it....

I have bought from Heritage gifts before, their delivery is usually fairly quick.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 21:31:47

Thanks, I didn't put a hypen in the web address!

Just off to see what they've got.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Tue 07-Dec-10 21:38:31

Now I'm in a dither!

Not sure about e-bay in case it doesn't arrive on time.

Think I'll phone playmobil, Hamleys and Heritage gifts in the morning and make a decision once I've spoken to them all!

I wanted to order it tonight, but I guess another few hours isn't too long really.

SnowMuchToBits Wed 08-Dec-10 11:29:27

Have you decided yet smile?

IwishIwasmoreorganised Wed 08-Dec-10 19:14:45

Playmobil are completely out of stock for this year.

Hamleys don't know when they will get more stock (probably not for a while I would think!!)

Heritage gifts have 2 in stock - one is earmarked for me - hooray grin

Phew - that's a lesson learnt not to leave things once we've decided that we want them!

Thank you everybody for your help and ideas.

sazm Wed 08-Dec-10 19:37:14

ooh our local toy shop has it at £59.99,they said thats the rrp on it!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Wed 08-Dec-10 19:56:13

Well that's not quite true!

How very cheeky of them - where's their Christmas spirit? wink
