Looking at play equipment, inspired by another thread and found is someone really selling a ladder and some rings for £8.5k?! Am I missing something?

Has to be an error

Oh what the fuck is that?! £8.5k they better be joking. When it said climbing frame for that money i assumed one of them huge assault course type ones for massive gardens.

Im assuming its an error though.

The other stuff is weirdly priced, even assuming this is an error. £50 for a small play tent but £16 for a play tunnel?

Maybe it’s packaged with coke instead of bubble wrap?

That's all wrong. I've seen the same giant house with slide thing for sale in costco for 1k+ which is more realistic for toys of that type on the market (unuffordable/extortionate).

But you can get £15 off for a first order so that makes it alright!

The description says its for age 13+ but also that it's a match for a changing table. How many 13 year olds fit on a changing table grin

Guys don't worry! I have a code for £15 off your first order. grin love a bargain.

Enjoy payments as low as £714.06 per month with 0% APR Barclays financing.

People do that to keep the online listing open, knowing that nobody in their right mind would buy it at a hugely inflated price.

Funny, though...

Hi OP,

Christ, clearly those ads with Lorraine were bloody expensive

Perhaps it comes with 5kg of purest Columbian wink
