Last minute santa request, minimal budget

Ds (3) had a last minute change of heart, and now wants "batman". I suspect he means an imaginext set he saw in smyths, but I don't have £40 to spare this close to the big day. Has anyone seen anything suitable for closer to £10? He's got presents he'll love, I just want to preserve that bit of santa magic by getting him what he asked the big guy for too...

Get the imaginext figures. If you have a home bargains nearby try there

Argos had batman lego sets at 2 for 10. Only one was barman but there was also a spiderman that could make up the 2.

Even Santa can't take last minute orders.
Worst case scenario, it went to next year's wish list.

Our home bargains doesn't seem to have any 😣. Will try b&m. Trying to avoid buying a whole imaginext playset as my 4yo will need an extra "big present " to balance, and the 2 of them already have more (quantity wise) than dd9 and ds11, so I'd probably then twitch on them too... it'd just spiral lol.

The Argos one seems like an option. May pick it up if nothing else turns up. Thanks!

Ask on your local Facebook selling pages if you don't mind having a second hand one.

Have a look at tesco. I got the imaginext bat cave for £18 last week. I wasn't going to get it because it was too much but that was a really good price. You also get batman and Robin figures with it.

Ah bugger! I just looked and it's back up to £40. Sorry

Aargh! Ordered one from Argos, went to collect and apparently you get one of an assortment of superheroes- they only had superman in stock. Had to get it refunded and wasted my 20 minute lunch break for they day. No idea where else to try, especially as the kids are off from tonight. Amazon say it's too late for Xmas delivery... help!!!
