The only thing DS wants from Santa is a Kaos Trap. Waaaaah. Have spent days looking for one online and even phoned Activision to ask if they could help. A lovely man from Game phoned round all his shops bless him - took me 20 mins holding to get through to him though. No joy. I suspect the Iron Fist of Arkus is trying to destroy our chances of defeating the evil Kaos. Can anyone help? Pretty please?

We bought the dark edition trap team starter pack from game when the game first came out and it came with it. Smyths were also selling them for halloween, may be worth ringing them and seeing if they have any left smile

Thanks Norks. None there either. Very wise of you to get that starter pack. Would have saved literally days of my life. Urgh. Maybe the Chompies have bought them all!

My dsis was just about cancelling xmas if she couldnt get this for my dn. Luckily smyths released some to click and collect so xmas is back on!! Not that that really helps you but just keep watching the sites as they seem to release them in dribs and drabs!

Thanks curly. Your Dsis did good. Who knew the world of present buying was so crazy! It's a blooming battlefield out there. But am determined not to be beaten. My poor DS will be heartbroken if I fail.

There's some on eBay but they are going for crazy prices! shock

Yikes! Crazy!

What do you think of my poem:

Kaos oh Kaos
When will you be mine
Your RRP is just £5.99
But you're so hard to find
I'm losing my mind
And eBay is living hell

I read on hotukdeals that they had been spotted in Asda so if you've one local that may be worth a go.

Your poem describes it perfectly! When it was skylanders giants out DS really wanted a ghost roaster figure that they no longer did anymore. I ended up having to pay about £30 for it on eBay. The things we do for our kids!!

Oh thanks Dangerous! Definitely will give it a try.

morechildrenplease Thu 04-Dec-14 22:57:51

I know! I have a bad feeling that my choices will be to pay 10 times what it is worth or have a very, very sad boy on Xmas day. Can't be right! But my kids love skylanders more than anything else so is a tough choice.

A quick bump for this before I start my fail search

kaos Trap is in stock in many Argos stores today, hope you manage to find one.

Nursie thanks so much! Got one in my basket and when I went to pay it said out of stock! Have phoned 10 stores. Nothing doing. Sigh!

NorksEnormous Fri 05-Dec-14 11:30:24

Ive just checked all the argos stores around me (I'm in Northern Ireland) and all out of stock sad

morechildrenplease Fri 05-Dec-14 12:02:36

Oh Norks! So, so kind of you! Thanks so much for trying.

trixymalixy Fri 05-Dec-14 13:06:31

Have just checked all around me too, no joy. Will keep my eyes peeled.

Can't see any in stock in my county on Argos website. Must've been snapped up quickly!

NoraRobertsismyguiltypleasure Fri 05-Dec-14 13:14:23

My local argos says i can order for delivery in 2 days time - I'm happy to get it delivered to me and then post it on to you if you can paypal me the costs.

WhatWouldTheDoctorDo Fri 05-Dec-14 13:25:14

So frustrating that argos are showing that they are available for delivery then out of stock after I put in all my details. I've been trying to get one too. I've tried lots of different towns on the Argos site (where friends and family are based around the country) and no luck. Fingers crossed they come back into stock - I've been checking the smyths website every day in case they come back.

WhatWouldTheDoctorDo Fri 05-Dec-14 13:27:21

Nora - that's what mine said too (re: the 2 days delivery) but after I put in all my details it said out of stock. sad.

NoraRobertsismyguiltypleasure Fri 05-Dec-14 13:34:46

Well, that's a bit of a crappy system, isn't it? Sorry for the false hope!
Hope you find one somewhere.

StripedOss Fri 05-Dec-14 13:42:35

im trying to get one as well, have email alert to tell me when its back in stock. grr

morechildrenplease Fri 05-Dec-14 15:18:46

Trixy, dilly, Nora I love you so much for trying! This is one of the gazillion reasons I love Mumsnet. Stripes and Doctor, if I find any I will buy a couple of extra if I can.

Likewise! I'm encouraged by the fact that some stores got them this week. Hopefully more on the way...
