Where can I get cheap barbie dolls from?

My DD has decided that she wants a barbie party for her 5th birthday. So we thought instead of giving away tat in the party bags, we would give the girls a barbie doll to take home. At the mo, the cheapest I can source them is £2.50 each - not bad, party bads aren't usually much cheaper... and at least it is something that will be kept grin. But can anyone find them anywhere cheaper?? Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions... but if I'm giving them away as a party bag, I was kind of hoping for brand new ones. Not sure how some of the mums would react to a second hand barbie doll as a party bag gift.

A pound shop might do a barbie lookalike for,erm, a pound.

Sorry , sometimes I see ones that are still in their boxes. I can't believe you can get a genuine Barbie for only £2.50...

They're £5 in woolworths, but on a buy one get one free promotion, therefore £2.50 each grin

Not genuine Barbie, but similar, scented(!) dolls in Tesco for £2 each I think, but are on buy one get one free.

Thanks. I thought I had seen them, and went to look for those today, but they didn't have any at my local Tescos. That is ideal though, so will keep popping back and having a look. Ta.
