    Any Home Bargains fans, please help!!

    Not really sure if this is in the right place, or if it should be in deal requests, but I am sure it will be moved if necessary.

    A while ago my mum bought my LO a Smoby Cotoons Tulip doll from Home Bargains the same as this one: piccolino.am/img…jpg. (will add a pic/link to thread)

    They did have them in stock at Home bargains for ages, but seem to have run out of them. They are small dolls with vinyl faces and velvety bodies, this one looks like a lion, but they also did a zebra type one. My 2YO daughter has become quite attached to it, and has been in a vile mood for 2 days as her 'baby' has been washed and air dried (god knows why it is taking so long) so she has not been able to have it. To avoid the same situation again I was trying to get hold of a spare. However this has proved more difficult than I thought I can only find one place in Armenia that sells them (have emailed to ask about costs etc), and a couple of other German, and New Zealand sites which sell very similar ones, but the costs involved are enormous.

    Anyway to get to the point, I was wondering if by any chance (and I know it is exceptionally unlikely) anyone picked one of these up from Home Bargains and has had no use for it, or if indeed they are in stock at someone's local Home Bargains.

    Have tried ebay etc to no avail, there does not seem to be any left in the country.

    Any help, links etc greatly appreciated Though am not holding my breath.

    I may try that, I asked in my local yesterday, but to be honest they are a bit dim, just looked at me with a vacant expression (and I asked a couple of workers and got the same response lol!)

    That would be fab, I think it is a very very long shot, as it was quite a while ago, but they did have a couple of stragglers on the shelf until recently.

    I think it was only about £4, but to get one of the similar ones from abroad I am looking at £30!!!!!!!!!

    i wanted a starwars costume last christmas and rang head office, they said they could send stuff from other stores to ur nearest if you asked nicely

    I have sent them an email as it's bank holiday weekend, fingers crossed!

    Lo is a happy little bunny as hers is dry now, but the fear of this happening again, or it getting lost is getting me a bit panicky lol!! Things we do for our kids eh lol!

    \didnt have any in the store I have just been to sorry.

    I know the feeling, My 3 all have teddies rather than dummies, but just means even more a nightmare when you wash them, or if they lose one. All 5 of the teddies we have between the 3 kids have all been discontinued too lol

    You just pointed something out I never realised, My little girl has never had a dummy, which is probably why she is so attached to this doll, my son had a dummy so never really got like that with anything.

    Thank you for looking for me anyway, it is much appreciated x

    I haven't no, I have been to a couple in the Stockport area, I think it's unlikely you will find one, but do appreciate you having a look for me!
