Sorry that should say in over 600 stores

I was fed up with waiting for stock so ordered one in eBay £7.99 plus 15% off second and can choose your colour.

Thanks

I have received my eBay ones. They are kinda OK for the price (I paid a few pence more) but they don't move their head on their own. (you poke it and it returns) eyes shut if upside down and different noise. The eyes don't flash/flutter. And it does not respond to touch. It does repeat a word you say in kinda monkey ish but not more than a word.

If will give these to the kids but would have yo tell them they aren't the real ones.

I don't think they are the real ones. It's frustrating waiting for stock but sometimes it does work in your favour

I got some from eBay as well for about £8 each. Sent them back as they were obvious fakes. Still waiting on my refund...

Bought some from Amazon instead and they’re the genuine article

It gets to the stage where people panic buy. I'm glad people can get the real things as well. Argos seem to have waited before releasing theirs, a lot of retailers seem to be doing it at the moment

Not sure which 600 stores? All around me is out of stock

I managed to get one from Amazon also, it's being delivered today. People are paying silly prices for the real ones on eBay, I find it so wrong. If people just bought what they needed there would probably be enough to go around but some are just greedy

That's a shame, I hope you manage to get some. Have you set up a stock alert? They are in stock in all my surrounding areas, I checked before I posted

Thanks guys for the heads up. I’ve now reserved one of these at Argos, only hope there is enough stock when I get there to choose the colour. Fingers crossed eBay item is ok too!!

I know that's the only thing about an assortment, you can't guarantee the colour. Hopefully you get the one you want

Hopefully you get two different ones. Glad you managed to get some

I can never understand why Argos don't have a drop down box for items like this,to choose the colour you want.I know you can refuse the one you get at the desk when you're served and ask for another,but it's a bit of a faff especially if they're busy & people are waiting to be served.

Pink currently available to order at Amazon btw.In stock 7th Dec. Sold by Amazon not Marketplace.

Reserve 4 in preston

Sometimes they list things separately other times they put it as an assortment and you get what you are given haha. I do agree though it can be a little tedious going to other Argos stores just to see if they have the one you want

Hopefully they have different colours available for you. The things we do for our kids aye

Great thank you

Marvellous!! No idea what these really do but they're on the Christmas list, thanks op 😁

says out of stock on mine

My daughter asked for 1 of these when they first came out, luckily I got her 1, I thought they were a waist of money but they aren't, she loves hers, most kids are wanting them this year, well worth the money, I also got her the the climbing frame one that's in Argos, came with 2 fingerlings pink and blue, but that's gone to Santa

No stock anywhere near me 😭

Thank you, I’ve managed to reserve one!

Managed to reserve one in Runcorn which I now can’t get too. If anyone wants the reservation Number. Pm me.

My daughter wanted the unicorn one that's exclusive to toys r us. It was so hard to get hold of but I finally managed to get one yesterday. I can now relax knowing the Christmas lists are complete. I got my son the sloth from smyths, it looks pretty cool tbh I'm glad I got it
