Has anyone bought from toynado before?
They have a mystery toy sale at the moment, $19.95 for $100 value.
The email I received says 'The Surprise Gamble That You Won't Loose On!'
The spelling mistake is making me wary!!
Website is here

I don't know anything about this one but.... sigh... I am such a sucker and will probably be enticed to buy one!

I have found, just with their general deals, they're pretty good so I imagine their suprise box would be just what they say it is - $100 worth of value.
Just recently got a Ben 10 alien maker thing for $14 when it's $35 in the shops and a couple of crayola light desks for $10 which are $20 in the shop.
And their delivery system is pretty good too. So far, I can't fault them.

I haven't bought the surprise box before, but I have got a couple of other things... bought DS1 and DS2 a Zibit's set that I saw in a shop for $49 or $59 - bought it for $7... also got a couple of Scooby Doo board games that were worth $25 and I only paid $5. Can't fault the service, but don't know anything about the surprise box. Only reason I am not buying one is knowing my luck, I'll get Barbie or Dora and with three boys, that would be pretty much useless.

I just ordered two I am such a sucker for mystery boxes.
(I found a code RW36 which gave me 10% off my order).. I always google coupon codes before I order anything online.

Did anyone have issues with postage method when putting through an order?????
I only have one option - and when i choose it, I get an error message saying select another shipping method.... argh!!!!!!!!!
Posted 08 November 2012 - 02:07 PM
For me it worked (they just charged me the $6.95 for postage).
Posted 08 November 2012 - 02:08 PM
Thanks for this post. I just ordered one, first time ever. Can always use the stuff for stocking stuffers.
No problems with postage which was $6.95.

I couldn't resist!!
Thanks for the code too CupOfCoffee, saved me having to search
I love getting parcels.....
Posted 08 November 2012 - 02:50 PM
I couldn't resist either, let's hope we all get good stuff. As PP said, can always use for stocking stuffers, or put away for next years birthday parties.

I just got an email to say my order has been shipped so hopefully not long till we find out!!
Would love to hear what others get too
Posted 13 November 2012 - 06:36 PM
Mine has also shipped.
Hopefully I will get it today or tomorrow (I love mystery parcels).
Can't wait to hear what everybody gets.

Mine arrived yesterday and I'm a bit disappointed . The contents seem very similar to a show bag to me. It contained the brand names listed but poor quality items of them. It contained a bunch of stuff I haven't heard if before and wouldn't have bought if I was in a store. It covered a whole age range too so not particularly good if buying for a specific aged child.
Mine contained:- A 'Highway Patrol' board game- A 'Mighty beans' collectors case- 3 'Left, right centre' dice games- Another version of the 'left right centre' game- A Wiggles activity book- A Thomas and friends stamping set- A Madagascar puzzle- A Mr Men photo frame- A Toy Story mini fun set (YoYo, mini frisbee and bat and ball)- A mini art pack.- A random collection of lollies.

I personally wouldn't be buying again. Now I need to find small people to offload this crap onto!
Posted 15 November 2012 - 12:32 PM
Anyone else got there's, my parcels usually take a little longer to get to me and I am curious (and just a wee bit impatient) to know if they are all the same or different?
Posted 15 November 2012 - 12:41 PM
They attempted delivery of mine yesterday when I was at work. Now I won't get mine until tomorrow.
Posted 15 November 2012 - 01:04 PM
I got mine today and it is almost the same as what flipped out got but I got a different Thomas item. I have brought from them before and been very happy. I would not buy a mystery box again
Posted 15 November 2012 - 03:52 PM
I got mine yesterday, it was the same as flipped out too except it was a Princess play pack instead of the Toy Story one and a small wind up thomas toy instead.
Not overly impressed, can't say I would go for it again that is for sure.
Does anyone have any idea what the Highway Patrol game is all about?
Posted 17 November 2012 - 01:28 PM
I got exactly the same as Scootaloo by the sounds of it.
Except buying two packs means I got two of everything...
Some of it will find its way to lifeline I think.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 01:37 PM
I also received the same as previous posters. I was disappointed, but the kids were excited and love the Highway Patrol game.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 01:48 PM
I was planning on keeping the dice game and maybe the board game and the rest can go wot the wishing tree. Really shouldn't have bought it in the first place.

We have the Left Right Centre game that comes in the tube with the tokens. Instead of using the tokens, we use any small toy that we have quite a few of (for us, that is playmobil people). My kids love playing it, we start with about 10 toys each and it goes for ages (20+ minutes). My 3,3, 5 and 7 all play, it has helped them to learn their lefts and rights.
If you end up with 3 of them like a PP, can I suggest a classroom up to about yr 3 might appreciate getting one of them.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 04:18 PM
I ended up buying two - I assumed they would be randomly packed but the box they came in actually said 'mystery box' so I guess they bought them in especially.
Mine are the same as the others, but i don't think we got a Thomas item, idid however end up with at least 6 left right games (I am a teacher though, so they will be used).
I think they're worth what i paid, but wouldn't purchase another one from them.
There was an awesome mystery toy sale last year, can anyone remember who it was through? Some people got kidkraft kitchens and other really expensive items. I remember I got a lot of playmobile.

that was dealme and sadly won't b repeated as it was stock from a toy company they bought
Posted 17 November 2012 - 04:27 PM
I got one and it came with lots of really awesome things (bean bag, bjorn baby carrier, bobble art bag and heaps more. I also got another one that was filled with playmobil, a wooden garage and the like from somewhere else.
I can't remember where they were from though.
Edit: I think my second one was the dealme one, thanks angelskies.
