none in stock, just had out of stock email after ordering....."The product(s) detailed below are currently out of stock at our suppliers. Please be assured that we will continue to try to obtain the item(s) for you "

Id pretty much say this is expired........


As for Enid Blyton being racist, thats got nothing to do with whether the deal is hot or not. Dont turn this thread into a discussion about that. Theres plenty of other threads in the world to discuss this.

However the sexism, racism and other attitudes were no different to other authors of the period. Blyton was like almost every author a product of the time she was writing in. In his book Enid Blyton and the Mystery of Children's Literature Dr David Rudd claims Golliwogs do not represent black people in Noddy Books. He also claims that modern children from ethic minorities and disadvantaged backgrounds enjoy reading the books that are often classed as racist and middle class - the world the children inhabit is so dramatically different to the world they now live in that they see it as fantasy world.

This is a HOT deal if you can get hold of the books. My siblings, Wife, her siblings and I were all brought up reading them, and we're not racist. Nor is the vast majority of caucasians from the UK born in the 70's, 80's and on where these books have all seen been good sellers....

double post sorry

oh well, if everyone else was racist then thats ok ! :santa:

still in stock, just ordered!

only email i've had is a confirmation email and it is still showing as in stock on their website.

You don't work for Smiths do you?!

Thanks, have ordered on the off-chance they might come - I used to love enid blyton when I was a child and I am sure my daughter will too - (and as a child of the 70's I am certainly not racist either)

they had these in store but were 12.99 before xmas but lucky i had £5 voucher and bought them for my son's xmas present-loves them.Just want to buy him nacy drew and the hardy boys now that i also loved reading as a kid lol

Another one here that has ordered and received a confirmation email.:whistling:

Gutted ... bought these just after Christmas from WHSmith for £12.99!

Does anybody know where to get books 11-21 from as a box set?

...The only only ones I can find are individually priced at £4.99 each!

Ahhhh books from when childrens stories used to be for the sole purpose of entertaining kids intellectually.

Unlike horrible potter made for emo, tragic, emotionally distan, ironically aloof kids of today, who will grow up to become teenage parents.

Oh and on the whole racist thing. Come on, most caucasian british people are racist. Its an accepted thing here. The same as cheating on your spouse is. Its fine as long as no one talks about it.

But hey there is a reason stereotypes are in place. Because they're often true. If you are british weight yourself against the checklist: rude, crude, hypocritical, bad teeht, bad breth and drunk like a fish.

My checklist says im mixed race lol.

out of stock email just come!! loooool

I ordered and got an e-mail saying out of stock. But it also says it will try to fulfill my order. This has happened in the past with whsmith and to my surprise i have received my order a few weeks later, so fingers crossed. ;-)

I'd love to order these, my sister and I have got them all, but as she's older than me she lays claim to them (not that she'd notice).
Bit wary about ordering o/s items though. Ordered the money boxes ages ago, they took my money, not yet received and ordered the St. Clares books, still waiting on them. Does anyone know if they're this price in store?

Actually, I've just checked my money box order and they've cancelled it without telling me! Funnily enough my money hasn't been refunded yet!

Worth an order at this price. Thanks.

Showing as in stock (even though you guys say its not) but a good deal so ordered formy daughter, fingers crossed they deliver

Ordered at 21.00Hrs, just got my "not in stock" e-mail.

Thanks for the heads up in the first place though!

Just got "dispatched" email! Thanks, OP!

You are NOT going to believe this !
Following the info that this item was likely to be out of stock I 'phoned the WH Smith online services to check.
The girl said if it is on the site as in stock then it is.
I said that seems not to be the case, please check.
She then is supposed to have rung through to the warehouse and been assured that it was there.
I explained that it was a birthday gift and I could not hang around waiting for it's arrival indefinitely.
No worries she said.

Guess what......... having placed the order I now get an OUT OF STOCK message !!!!!

What is the %%%$$£%% point ?

(I also mentioned that the price of £7.20 had disappeared as well)

i got the email originally last week to say out of stock but i received my boxset this week, on wednesday. also spotted it in store at my local whsmiths.

This may well be the case.

I 'phoned customer services again to complain about being led upi the path re: in/out of stock.

The guy checked with the supplier and assured me that the item WAS in stock despite messages to the contrary. He blamed a problem with the system.

It,s about time an on-line service got it's computers working !!!!!!!!!!!!

strange.... i got a cancellation email a few days ago, then got an email today saying
"[FONT=Arial]Re: Famous Five 1-10 boxset [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]I am very sorry to inform you that there was an error with your order for the item mentioned above.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]I have therefore cancelled this item and[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]raised a credit for the charge made for this item which will be refunded to your account within 7 working days.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]I have reordered this product which should be despatched out to you in the next few days.[/FONT] " :?

I got the cancellation email too on Wednesday. But last night received an email advising that it had been dispatched!

Blimey, the books just arrived via TNT.

Quality service!

Same with me i got the cancellation email on wednesday then i gt the despatch email today and they have been delivered! I knw what i will be reading later
