Silverlit Gyro Zee Remote Controlled Car was £39.99, then £29.99 now only £14.99 at Argos - BACK IN STOCK

Found 13th Feb 2016
This was on sale for the same price over a year ago and I bought one for my nephew. After seeing it in action, my daughter (and I) wanted one so badly. However, the price had gone back up to £39.99 (the original "was" price) and I definitely wasn't going to pay that knowing I could have bought it for £14.99.

Anyway, after price watching Argos and Amazon for over a year, and with £24.99 being the lowest it ever reached (it was mostly £29.99), it has now come back down to £14.99. Yipee!

Word of warning though: It requires a whopping 10 x AA batteries. (We plan on using rechargeable batteries or buy a few packs of these:

Important info for parents -
1. No fighting over who gets the remote. You bought this for the kids. Not for you, for the kids.
2. No, you may not use it to chase the cat/dog/baby. Give the remote back to the kids.

This is a brilliant toy that any "thrill seeker" would love to own.
Note that it requires 6 AA batteries for the car and 4 AA batteries for the remote. So you'll be replacing the 6 in the car much more frequently than the 4 in the remote.
Had me worried for a second there as my AA battery charger can only charge 8 at a time :P
Thanks OP.......reserved one for collection

Might have to order some of these:

I had this growing up.. Literally the best AC car ever! I just bought this Gyro Zee for my nephew but there is no chance of it standing up to the rebound!
Damn, I wanted the Rebound when I was a kid, this looks like a pretty good replica of it.

Edit: Aww no stock..

kaisno

OOS NOW



For those that didn't get one, this is back in stock again!! Have checked a few postcodes up and down the country, and it seems to be back in stock, or can be ordered for collection in about 3-5 days time.

BUT I'm guessing that the price may go up after the kids go back to school. Not sure if Argos honour the reservation price if the price goes up, so it may be wise to to pay online now and then they hold it for you for 7 days.
