Reserved one of these last week when they were £24.99, went in today to pick it up and the women on the tills told me they were reducing them further with vouchers they had at the till so got it for £18.75!

Still £24.99 online just now but worth reserving and checking instore!

Was it really worth £75 to start with? Seems alot for what it is.
But heat added. £18.75 sees a reasonable price to pay.
#2
Wonder why they're so keen to get rid of them?

Probably not, but, it is a nice little thing and well worth the £18.75 :D

She had a little envelope beside her till with a few things, I actually purchased it at £24.99, used the self serve tills, then when I went to collect it the kind Lady told me they had been reduced further, so she refunded me and sold it to me again at the lower price :D

It was a voucher they had instore, maybe it just hasn't been uploaded on the website as yet? It wasn't just a voucher to reduce this, there were other things too ( not sure what they were though )
#11
So do you think there is a good chance they would reduce it for me? Little one not ready for it and can't find many reviews but if I get it cheaper I'll put it away for next year and get the reduced adaptor to save on batteries...!

These really are terrible tiny screen and games that you would get on a 1990 pocket calculator
the kids wont be fooled by the pc styling, it will be in the bottom of the toy box in a few days, especially if the child has access to a real PC.
#13
£75? PMSL no way they ever realistically sold for that over optimistic over hyped RRP rowlarks IMHO that. You can buy a second hand laptop running XP for that easily!

Hot for the deal as £18 is quite good for what you're getting but seriously TS should stamp on this RRP cobblers it's the same with fireworks overinflated RRPs to make deals look good

I disagree, maybe for kids a little bit older, but I know my 5 year old will love it :D

I do agree they have over inflatued the RRP, but this is definately worth the under £19, you can even plug your MP3 into it ;)

My wife saw this here last year and got it for Xmas for (then) 7 year old. I barked at her when I saw what she'd done, predicting it would be a waste of money - even if it is cheap!
OK, kid liked it and played with its tiny screen and crap games for a while, but now less than a year old and he only uses it to play his ipod music on. Mind you, 3-year old thinks it's cool!
My advice, buy a real ipod speaker with your £18 and show him how to use a real computer, he'll remember you for that and not put you into a nursing home later.

This doesnt exist the op must have been damn lucky. I went in and spoke to the manager. The 25% of VTECH is allready off theprice and the price is £24.99 and he rang other stores to confirm and the head office. the price is £24.99...
#28
i checked today aswell and they knew nothing about it :( they rang round stores aswell gutted :(
#29
went to pick mine up today, he told me it must of been just in that store as its still £25 everywhere else, but was worth a try :(
#30
Got mine today but was £25...still a good price
#31
Glad I left it! :-)
#32
yep mine hadnt been reduced either :(
never mind still a good price
#33
i prebooked one also, but am concerned about the screen, my son aged 4 plays games on my computer and i assume the screen and graphics on this are very basic and blocky so is there any point?
