sleep the problem with that is, chances are it won’t meet EU safety regulations, and by the time you pay import duty, card fees and take into consideration the crap exchange rate, is it really worth it?
Ah nooo don't buy Lepin, it's Chinese counterfeit Lego.
It may be cheaper, but you can't easily resell Lepin products. For example people have had listings removed when they have tried to sell on Ebay, so saving a few pounds now might be costly in the future.
Real Lego may be expensive but it holds it's value, and has undergone proper safety checks.
ifartrainbows- people would happily give towards the lego cause, but I am unreasonably wanting it to be my (ok, our- DH and I) gift for her, as I know itll just make her day. Her grandparents are going to set about buying gifts and gifting her money towards our trip away for her birthday (her birthdays boxing day) so foreign exchange and stuff....its all a bit weird this year as Grandparents are celebrating her birthday with her a few days later.
On the small off chance you know someone who works for Merlin entertainment (legoland, Alton Towers, Tussauds etc) they get a staff discount at Lego.
Tesco points maybe?
I saw the Kwik E Mart in our Toys R Us the other week at £89.99. I was so excited, got to the till and it scanned at £189. Supervisor went and got the shelf ticket and the '1' had rubbed off when they had been moving shelf labels. I was gutted.
