Some smyths have the sloth fingerling in stock depending on where you live (& other smyths seem to be getting them in before the 15/12). If by any highly unlikely chance you're near Derry, there's some of the play sets with 2 monkeys & again they say there'll be more in stock from 11th. The Entertainer have some as stock coming soon & stock coming 2018.
Yes please @Byallmeans... I have completely mucked up over this whole fingerlings debacle! It's the only thing my 2 have been asking for from Father Christmas. I had no idea they would be this popular and sold out! To think we saw them in Tesco down the road all throughout November. I currently in an internet frenzy trying to get at least 1!
The most amazing thing has happened! The wonderful Ripasso on mumsnet has messaged me and sold me a fingerling this evening after reading this thread! 1 down and 1 to go. If any one has another for sale at all it would be amazing! My 3 year old ds is getting priority but I know my 8 year old dd who still just about believes in Father Christmas is going to be very sad. A friend has suggested writing a letter from father Christmas with the money and explaining that there are too many colours to choose from and thought she would like to choose her own. I am thinking this might work, even going to get the tea out to try and stain the paper and make an old fashioned scroll. But just in case any mums are reading this with a spare fingerling for sale, please message me! And all have a very Happy Christmas! I have deffinatly learnt my lesson with leaving the last minute present buying for those 'must have gifts this year! From now on it's November shopping all the way!
