The one and only thing that my daughter has asked for Xmas is the Monty and Mabel plush from John Lewis.. I have been checking everyday on there website for new stock but they have since removed the listing. I can not get to any stores and when I have phoned customer service I have been told that they will not post out from a store for me as these are in high demand. Ebay sellers are selling them for ridiculous prices as well. Id love to make her Xmas as she has had a particularly bad year being in and out of hospital. Can anyone please help locate a pair for me??

No sign at Bluewater. Suspect there was only ever very limited stock available and that probably presold to staff .

They're like gold dust. You're going to need good luck and a good internet speed!!

You are unlikely to find them online, they like to make you go into store.

The big London stores had some last week, but they won't post or reserve them because they are so in demand.

I'd drive round John Lewis stores until I found them, or accept paying a premium on eBay. I can't see how else you will get them.

Can you knit? John Lewis have a kit to knit your own monty and mabel. Not quite the plush ones but look quite good and may be better then nothing.
