Please?

Dd2s "one thing you really want from Santa" this year is a my little pony adagio dazzle doll. The only place that seems to have them is smyths but I cannot order online. It's an"equestria girls dolls that rock" doll; there are three of them and they are all under the one code.

I'm not convinced smyths HAVE them as Argos are supposed to have them but only have the other two. I have tried calling my nearest store but cannot get sn answer; it's an hour away and I don't mind going but I would prefer not to go on a wasted trip.

If anyone is going or passing, would you be kind enough to have a look for me and let me know if they have adagio dazzle? Any branch of smyths is fine, my nearest is Glasgow but if I know the chain definitely stocks them I don't mind going - I'd just rather not drive for two hours if isn't an item they sell?

Thanks I hadn't seen it - if they have it in smyths it's £12.50 though so quite a difference even accounting for petrol. It's a great back up though so thank you.

Oh sorry just noticed it's a US seller. It's cheaper on amazon.com, so maybe have a look there...? Will try to locate a uk one for you!

RJnomore Fri 07-Nov-14 21:06:48

I've tried amazon uk, Argos ( who look like they have it but don't hmm) toys r us all the supermarkets... Probably a few others I've forgotten too!

None of my local Smyths (in NI) have that particular one in stock at all. My dd mentioned it after spotting it in an Argos or Smyths book. I had a dig about online looking for one last month but I couldn't actually find it, it was almost like it hadn't been released yet. Thankfully my dd hasn't mentioned it again.

RJnomore Fri 07-Nov-14 21:23:07

Oh bum I'm going to end up paying through the nose to get it from America aren't i?

I may be going to Smyths in Edinburgh tomorrow if I can leave my kids with their auntie for an hour. I could have a look for you. Where abouts roughly are you?

WowGrowingUpSoQuickly Fri 07-Nov-14 21:38:05

I can have a look in Stockton and let you know tomorrow. I can get it dropped off at East Kilbride if I can get hold of one.

RJnomore Fri 07-Nov-14 22:02:28

Thank you both. I just need to know that they do actually stock them - I will happily drive to Glasgow if they do!

I'm in Ayrshire so not near either of you - it's just that I don't want to drive through to look for a product they don't stock. The Glasgow smyths is out the other side of Glasgow as well for me, I'm in the city centre usually quite regularly and if it was silverburn/braehead I could tie it in with meeting friends but the fort is just that bit too far for a wild goose chase.

rJnomore you should call the Glasgow Fort shop as they are usually v helpful. The number is 0141 771 7681.

Is it equestris girls? And one of the three is called adagio dazzle?

RJnomore Sat 08-Nov-14 08:22:13

I can't get them to answer ticktock. I will check that's Thr number that I have though, thanks.

Yes nerf, there are lots of different types of equestria girls, these ones are "dolls that rock" and there are three, one is called adagio dazzle.

Nerf Sat 08-Nov-14 08:38:49

Going today to look for pokemon so will have a look

RJnomore Sat 08-Nov-14 08:55:38

THank you.

Nerf Sat 08-Nov-14 14:54:58

Tried and they showed as in stock but the poor bloke looked everywhere and couldn't find it - all the boxes off and the stock room

RJnomore Sat 08-Nov-14 15:16:40

Thanks nerf. I suspect that has bro have actually only released two dolls here and I'm going to have to pay for an American import.

Pfffft.

I'm probably going to be picking up an order one evening this week so can have a look.

I'm in Hampshire though!!!!! if it's there do you want me to pick up and send to you?

RJnomore Sat 08-Nov-14 15:57:39

Ilove, I'm thinking that might be a good idea. They seem to be like hens teeth. Can you message me before though just in case anyone has come along and said Glasgow has them, because I think if I find one I would drop everything and get in the car right now!

I don't remember this level of stress since the year DH was determined he was getting them a wii.

I can PayPal or bank transfer or purchase something of similar value to be sent to you/email a gift voucher to the value - whatever you would prefer.

iloveholidays Sat 08-Nov-14 16:00:30

I've sent you a message smile

It says they have stock at my local Smyths (a doll reduced from £24.99 to £12.49?) when I check online. If nothing comes up trumps for you I'd be happy to go but I'm away until Monday I'm afraid

RJnomore Sat 08-Nov-14 16:46:22

Banana it's fine thank you very much - I love is going to look when she is there anyway. The problem is the three dolls are all under one code so it might be the other two which are in stock, same as Argos, there is no way to tell.

shazza0911 Sat 22-Nov-14 09:39:25

Did you manage to get this doll? Been trying for weeks too. I contacted Argos and they said they didnt have them it was an advertisment mistake. Contacted Hasbro and they said that they left the warehouse going to Toys R Us but cant find any in or near Glasgow.
