I think I'm about to lose it! EDIT! I FOUND IT!

I am having such a hard time finding certain Lego Friends sets for my 10 y/o. Stupid Walmart said that they had it in stock in the store, so I battled traffic & crowds only to find out that was a big fat lie! Toys R Us, Target, Meijer & any other store I've tried is out of stock right now. I know I can just get them for her Bday in March, but I really wanted her to have 1 under the tree :( Have you ever had a Christmas when you couldn't find THE one special toy they wanted? Part of me could almost cry! :(

I was able to find everything on the Lego website!  Thanks ladies.  I feel so much better now.  :)

  • OMG!!! Yes ... when our grandson wanted this certain video and we searched high and low
    at every store and just could not find it... I finally went online, found in the corner little video stores
    in our area and found a used version of the game... I had my dh drive 1 hr one way to get this game,
    it was the #1 item he really wanted that yr...

    I would go to lego.com and see if you might not be able to order it online and have it shipped right to you
    sometimes those places offer no shipping charges and you stay home and it comes to you...

  • Yes. DS LOVES bionicle and has asked for some set that came out two years before he was born. He's almost 10. There's a snowball's chance in hell that of me finding it, even on ebay. I'm going to have to go to one of those nerd toy conventions if I ever really want to get it for him. H will be unsatisfied.

  • Yeah, try Lego directly. I got my oldest DD a paint set she really wanted from Crayola.com that was out of stock everywhere else.

  • Their prices are usually pretty similar to the other stores, just not as many sales. They do have a Lego VIP club where you get a certain percent of your purchase price in credit to use towards future purchases.

  • Thanks ladies- I guess I will keep looking online. When I tried Amazon, it referred me to stores I've never heard of. But I will go directly to the Lego site. Hopefully they're not too much more. She wants the Lego Friends Treehouse, Summer Camp &/or Stables.
