Thanks for the post, this will be ideal for my son to build. Amazon now saying dispatched in 1 - 3 weeks, but that should still be in plenty of time for advent.
Just buy it through eBay, jeez, Amazon's 'amazeballs customer service' really doesn't matter for this cheap tat.
Nothing personal, but all of this 'only buy from Amazon and John Lewis' mentality on here makes my blood boil at times :(
Okay, all those who have returned items to eBay and Amazon - hands up who found eBay easier and less hassle. Thought so... :p

Okay, hands up all those that would need to return a £14.99 novelty item.

How is life on benefits? ;)

P.s. You can get a refund off eBay 99.9% of the time almost too easily - to a point where the seller can suffer unnecessarily



Life on benefits? Pretty hard I would imagine for most other than the few headline stories where a handful are somehow seemingly raking it in.

Anyway what a totally irrelevant jibe.

OP great find heat added.

Any geeks list parts for me to build my own anyway on the cheap. Was just talking about building basic electronic stuff earlier today, a bit like the old "Tandy" shop toys had as a kid, I've got a breadboard already, just need to figure out all other bits and parts to get :)

Seriously? I put 'FM Radio Calendar Kit' in the eBay search bar & it was the first result. More than 10 available now, 11 sold.
eBay link.

​It was just a bit of fun because the other poster seemed to suggest that a £15 purchase was a big risk on eBay. Chill man

​So. I'm glad you have £15 to just not bother about, but I'd be miffed if I spent that money on something and then it didn't work and I struggled to get refund. I'm not on benefits, but I'm here to save money like everyone else and find this comment supremely unhelpful and rude,and not really in the spirit of the community.

Oh and I have only tried to get refund once through eBay, where the seller sent me a cd case with the wrong cd in it. They saw in favour of the seller. Fantastic service.

I like the idea, but getting a resistor a day I'm guessing isn't much fun. I've just had the idea of giving my tool mad son a 25 piece socket set in an advent calendar. We already have a wooden advent calendar.
Just thought I'd share the idea.

This idea is so ACE I just had to share it with my hubby for a giggle. He reckons we might have to copycat the idea for OUR tool-mad son too. So now I just need to find a (HUK)deal on a) a 25 piece socket set and b) a wooden advent calendar :P
Thank you! Flippin' genius idea!

It's not funny, it's a cheap jibe. Not everyone is minted. Times are very hard for some & you are wrong to make that remark.

​I truly appreciate that not everyone has it easy, but people saying 'get JL to price match' so they can get 2 years warranty on packets of cheese slices (slight exaggeration, obvs) just gets really annoying.

If buying a £500+ TV for example, sure, hold out for a better warranty, but this is a £15 novelty that will DEFINITELY turn up if bought from eBay, the other poster is potentially going to end up not getting one at all because he/she doesn't have the guts to buy from elsewhere - I just find it a bit silly.

Most years Lidl do a refillable fabric advent calendar with pockets which is perfect for tools etc, probably better than the wooden ones

A great idea, well done, I have to do this; but in which window do you put the ratchet lever?

Sorted, I've just realised, that goes in the Christmas stocking!
