It's like trying to find a polka dot unicorn



I've checked Argos, Zavvi, HMV, Game, Smyths, been bidding on ebay and wondering how Play.com can get away with charging almost €80 for it. I've sent out the flying monkeys and I'm now waiting on a call from Sligo to see if it can be found there as Dublin, Cork and Waterford are proving fruitless. After all this, Mam had bloody well better like it.

**UPDATE**

Sligo is out too. Balls.

**UPADTE THE SECOND**

I've chanced ordering it on eBay so fingers crossed it arrives in time! Thanks everyone for the helpful offers, you're all lovely so ye are!

  1. I saw it in Game in Dundrum Town Centre roughly two weeks ago. I can't remember the price but it definitley wasn't €80!

  2. That's just it, sure my brother could've gotten it back home a few weeks ago for around €30 but he left it and now it's sold out everywhere! Madness.

  3. Ah, that's annoying alright! Have ye tried any of the smaller stores? Sometimes my local shopping centre is great for stuff because people don't really think to try there.

    Best of luck though! If I see them, I'll pop ye a comment :)

Last night mine was asking me about "that hand held thingie with the brain puzzles - what's that now?" - helpful hintings since I had just spent the afternoon with Dad purchasing PC based brain puzzle games...pah...
