Have you got one? Have you tried to get one this near to Christmas?! It has been almost impossible for me to find one this Christmas, and my sister despratly wants one. Of course, you could get them off eBay, but at a hugely inflated price.
False sense of satisfaction
But, oh my luck as I found a site that said they would have stock before Christmas. “Mid-December” was what was said. I pre-ordered and waited. And waited. Until I got an e-mail saying they would have stock on the 20 December. “Great!” I thought, 21st, nothing came. 22nd, nothing came. I started to worry, and blasted off an e-mail to them. From their reply, the delivery from the factory was delayed, and would come on the 23rd and would be sent out. Of course it could still arrive before, but I was despratly worried it wouldn’t. So I searched high and low again in high-street shops for it, but none had stock. I got back late on the 23rd, exhausted from my shopping spree (spent too much again). Only to notice this e-mail in my inbox:
Weiran, The stock arrived today and we dispatched all the orders that were sitting as pre-orders. Your order has now been dispatch and is being delivered tomorrow. Please ensure someone is home to sign for the goods. Kind regards, Jodie Forward Customer Service Team
This has to be the hardest Christmas present I’ve had to track down ever! Yes, harder than trying to get a La-La doll a few years back (Wollies had stock, but the bastards wouldn’t put them on the shelves, you had to ask!). It’s made even sweeter by the fact I found a Â£5 off voucher on the net, so in total, it only cost me Â£13.99!
Hoo-rah for the internet and Firebox (they deserve this plug)!
