Desperately trying to get my daughter fingerling for Christmas but they have sold out everywhere. Is there anyone with any inside knowledge as to when stores will be getting them in. Cheers

I am going to ask the question - what are fingerlings ?

WWW.Smiths toys.com will be getting some in on the 8th of December, I ordered 2 fingerlings play sets costing 39.99 for my youngens 2 weeks ago and received them this week.
There are some genuine ones for sale on EBay too..

There is a toy fair at Elsecar Heritage Center on Tuesday 12th December, 30 stalls selling nothing but toys old and new starts at 5pm till 9pm, all dealers not charities, not saying they will have what you want but if they are that popular one dealer may have some, the next big toy fair is Doncaster Race Course New Years Eve, 10am to 4pm. Best of Luck.

They have them on ebay, but you'll need to check the delivery date.

Good Luck.

Ordered two from Amazon marketplace but they never arrived so I had to arrange a refund.

Managed to get a couple from Asda, by chance, around three weeks ago. Didn't order them, just spotted them in store and snapped them up.

I got one at Argos Kilner Way on Monday. Ordered and paid online the day before. Worth a try.

The shortage of these toys was brought up on BBC Breakfast on Sat morning.

Apparently, realising that these toys are one of the must haves this Xmas, certain individuals have been using computer bots to place multiple orders with suppliers, creating a shortage in stocks to retailers & then selling the toys at inflated prices on sites such as Ebay.
