Trying to buy ds thomas the tanks totally tidmouth but the only place I can find that sells it is toys r us and the closrst store that has stock is 100miles away sad has anyone seen this item anywhere else x

Why not just get it delivered from ToysRus? Its free delivery over £30.

Can you speak to your local toys r us and see if they can get it sent to their store

BankerMommy2010 Sun 10-Nov-13 09:23:18

Pascha its not available for home delivery sad might get hubby to phone the store that has it in stock hes cheekier than I am x

Oh so its not blush sorry. I bet you can get it delivered in store locally for you though. If not maybe get someone close to get it and post it to you.

do you have a link to it? i can see if it's in ours

bundaberg Sun 10-Nov-13 15:51:31

it's available in STEVENAGE if anyone can get that and post it to you?

I've just had a look to see if it was in stock anywhere here incase I could help you. Closest to me is 88 miles - Stevenage, if anyone lives near there!

I just looked and Stevenage is the closest to me too (146 miles away though). Where roughly are you?

Pascha Sun 10-Nov-13 15:55:11

Nearest store its in stock for me is Stevenage too! Maybe its discontinued and only a small stock remains in a few stores.

ZombieMonkeyButler Sun 10-Nov-13 15:57:32

I've just done a quick search from everywhere from Truro to Inverness - it would appear to be only in Stevenage!

There is one on Amazon but it is twice the price almost!

Pascha Sun 10-Nov-13 15:57:35

You can get parts of it on ebay

ZombieMonkeyButler Sun 10-Nov-13 15:58:07

Well, not literally everywhere you understand. Just the main cities.

Does it absolutely have to be that one? There are other sets that might be sufficient. Sorry I forget how old your DS is, but if he's young enough he won't even notice the difference presumably?

bundaberg Sun 10-Nov-13 16:02:26

apparently it used to be called "adventures on sodor".... just in case that helps with ebaying or anything?

cindersinsuburbia Sun 10-Nov-13 16:05:33

It's here but double the price :sad:

BankerMommy2010 Sun 10-Nov-13 18:25:32

Thank you everyone....I have been out today and bought cranky the crane & tidmouth sheds take & play sets as well as additional track sets... cost me a bit more but cheaper than driving from bham to Stevenage smile thank you for all of the offers if help x

fuzzpig Sun 10-Nov-13 18:32:16

I'm sure he will love all that grin

Brockle Sun 10-Nov-13 23:01:55

my son loves the take n play sets. they are a huge hit and have been used (and added to) for the last six years! smile

Glad you found an alternative. I'm sure it will be great and driving to Stevenage is probably something nobody really wants to do.
