I'd have been absolutely spitting bullets if I had wanted this doll for my child and it wasn't priced same as the white doll in the 3for2. Definitely think Argos should be made aware of how wrong it is to do this.

Not too bothered about cold votes expected it but I know it will help moms like me looking for the doll :-)

So why is this a hot deal? It is the regular (rather expensive) price for a toy doll.

£99.99 for a doll of any ethnicity seems rather expensive to me too.

Thx for posting on here ! Not! Now sold to scalpers!

This doll is terrible, does 3 or 4 things, and your child will be bored with it in 30 minutes. Don't understand how the price can be justified for this. It's absolute junk

It's a shame you have to spend so much money for a decent looking doll of colour but heat added anyway.

Heat added as it is out of stock in most other retailers.

Yes I agree it’s very expensive but I find all toys are these days, I just spent £25 for a small pj mask car and my son wants all three characters/cars it is really bad. And also the black doll is so much harder to get.. Argos released the blonde one ages ago and it’s part of the 3 for 2 and this one isn’t .. however I’m over the moon to get one as been searching for 3 weeks lol x

This ones more rare/ harder to come by which is why it's not on 3 for 2

I agree it’s wrong!!

I've been looking for a black doll, but this is ridiculously priced Amazon have some for under 25 💷

Good find. No stock anywhere. Going to be the No 1 toy of Christmas. People paying up to £250 on ebay for these.

i was thnking £30 was high for a doll but £100(fierce) hope your child enjoys playing with it . You should bring it up to argos why the white is included and the ethnic doll aint included on the offer thy may be generous and give a gift voucher

Wow, that's a ridiculously high price, can I suggest that anyone looking for dolls of colour try educational supply companies, I have purchased them for schools at far cheaper prices than this, albeit not talking ones , but quality makes as made to be used by numerous children . You don't have to be a school to order from them .

don't be too disappointed that these dolls weren't included in the 3 for 2 because you wouldn't have been able to get one anyway! the blonde luvabella was meant to be in stock on the 1st of october but then miraculously went oos due to high demand, they wasn't even on the website to purchase in the first place another trick from argos to get you on their website, happens every year!

No conspiracy here, Argos ignored the 1st October date and they were available to reserve on the 26th September, upsetting a lot of people in the process.

well i rang customer services because the option wasn't available to reserve one she said that is because they are not available til the 1st and i wouldn't be able to add to basket til then i checked website everyday and there was no option to buy she also said that they are not getting stock til november couldn't give me a reason why they wasn't available on the 1st so obviously something 'fishy' going on there! she said the stock showing on uk stock informer was incorrect they had no stock til the 1st.

Stock Informer is right they did have stock before the 1st but only in certain areas x

People used the Argos app to reserve on the 26th, it may have been an error for them to allow this but it happened

must have only worked on the argos app then that explains why i couldn't add to basket on my laptop thought i was going mad when i was seeing all the stock disappearing on stock informer it was doing my head in! thanks for telling me x

I can confirm I reserved one via the app on the 26th and collected it in Argos on the 27th. I was the second person to collect one that day according to the staff as they were keen to have a look at it. I had been monitoring the stock situation everywhere for several days, as my 7 year old had seen the video on You Tube. Pure luck I got one.

Also, although it says 3 for 2 on the white doll on the website, the Manager of my local Argos made a point of saying it wasn’t included in 3 for 2 because of demand and lack of stock availability. This may be discretionary at store level.

I would have complained, he's clearly wrong here. If it wasn't on the 3 for 2 then it shouldn't be advertised as such.

If you had paid via Fasttrak then they would have had no choice.

Anyone looking to buy this doll should look on smyths website each night between 11-12pm as that's when they update their website and it will tell you which shops have them in. Can't buy them online tho only in store

hotstock.io say's it's in stock right now on Amazon
