Not really but Aibu to ask for your help?
I ordered a Christmas jumper for my daughter, a red grinch one from primark that had sold out at my local primark .
It hasn’t arrived. The whole family have matching grinch sweaters, what do I do?
She’s 6 so it was a small ladies I was planning to shrink a bit to fit!
Please help me.
I don’t even mind changing my jumper as long as we both wear the same (her “command”) but stock is practically non existent in Christmas jumpers for both of us (I’m a 10-12)!
Please help me!

get plain red jumpers, silver fabric pens, tinsel and make your own together

My daughter (5) and I got really ugly matching ones from morrisons that we love. I think mine is actually a mens because its quite big lol.

Listen to the woman people! She HAS a load of matching jumpers....she just wants one more....not to make her own or buy another lot!

Do you have family / friends in another town you could ask to go to their primark and post you a grinch jumper

When do you need it? What is the seller saying? Have you tried ringing Primark to see if they are getting more

7yo7yo Thu 06-Dec-18 21:12:17

The seller said they are looking into it.
I’m not creative so wouldn’t like to attempt to make a jumper.
I will ask my rels in other cities actually, thanks.
Primark couldn’t say if the were getting anymore.
I will buy different matching ones if no joy.
I tried online but couldn’t find any so I’ll trek around the shops tomorrow.
Thank you all x

I saw some like this on amazon but I can't find the link. Not immediately obvious from first clicking that there was a grinch option

When do you need them by, Christmas Day? Have you checked eBay? If you have time I'm sure other Mumsnetters will check their local Primark for you.

Asda and river island have matching Christmas pyjamas, possibly jumpers too

tiggerbounce77 Thu 06-Dec-18 21:40:29

Try eBay, they have some on there

GotThatWhatWhat Thu 06-Dec-18 21:46:16

Post a pic OP - the next time I pop in I'll have a look.

I live near to Manchester, and my colleague mentioned today that there was a whole load of Grinch Christmas stuff in there today. i can't get int tomorrow to check it out, but perhaps someone else might be able to help

Mumshappy Thu 06-Dec-18 21:54:11

Could you look for a grinch onsie instead try peacocks

Thesmallthings Thu 06-Dec-18 21:57:22

Are these them? If so EBay have them in extra small and small

1st world problem😱
No, your Christmas isn't ruined because you won't all look like clones. It might be ruined if the roof blows off your house on Christmas Eve, or you under cook the turkey and you all get matching food poisoning, but no, not having matching jumpers is very very very low down on the 'things that ruin Christmas' list.

I think Christmas is safe.

If you have to get different ones Tesco had loads of adult and mini me ones tonight.

If they are the ones posted above theN YABU. Your xmas will be saved by not wearing those hideous jumpers. Much nicer ones out there (sorry)
