Anywhere? I'll travel LOL!

Don't know what it is, but maybe write a letter from Santa saying 'I know you said you wanted the blue fijit, but I REALLY like the green one and thought you'd like this one better'
Then you don't need to get another one...and it's on Santa that he got a green one wink.gif

Amazon had them the other day, not sure how much extra time it would take to get to the east coast.

I would still just give her the green one.
I am sure on christmas morning she will forget what colour she has even asked for and will love the green one.

You could order one through a shipping forwarding from Amazon or the like?

Or just explain that blue's not a Christmas colour, so Santa preferred to give a green one!

I think I saw a blue one in target but honestly I would just write her a letter back from Santa saying awesome the green one is and as he wants her to have the best for being so good this year he is going to give her the green one.

I wrote Santa letters to all 3 of my kids this year, I got some pretty paper from the newsagent, some santa stickers and had at it lol.

Thanks all. I know I should be able to write the letter from Santa and just give her the green one, but she has Aspergers and I just know life will be so much more pleasant on Christmas morning if I've found the blue one  mellow.gif  Sad but true.

I am going shopping tomorrow so will have a look for you but I can say I have never seen a blue one. I could only get DD a pink one in the toys sales and arred and ummed over the colour but lucky found a purple one later. I know she would blame it being pink for not playing with it

If you are desperate, order it from Amazon and use the express shipping option and you will have it in a few days, And it will still be about the same price as here.
I know the feeling, DD has been saying she wanted a Fijit so we got here one and now she is desperate for a Furby, so Amazon came to the rescue biggrin.gif

Just checked and they have no blue that will ship here sorry sad.gif

Jaxxie I thought of that, but Amazon said it wouldn't ship here when I tried?

Ajo that is very sweet of you, don't go to any special trouble but if you happen to see one in your travels I would be indebted to you!

The blue one is Logan, and quite rare. I have rung several toy shops today and looked online but they only have pink, green and purple.

Posted 05 December 2012 - 08:11 PM

Sorry I didn't edit before you saw, I got a blue one about a week ago for a girlfriend but they must be low in stock now so not shipping here.......love Amazon but drives me insane how items change to and from Global shipping eligible.

There is one on Ebay at $86 ATM

I just had a look on ebay - I don't know if it would get here before Christmas though? And I have no idea how much you normally pay for one (never seen them before).

#16 zande

Posted 05 December 2012 - 08:19 PM

Jaxxie that might be the one I have a bid on LOL! I lost another one today that went for $102.50! (They were $84.99 when I bought them!)

I asked DD today "what if FC can't find a blue one?" and she said "but he just makes them, he doesn't buy them" and I said that products like Fijit friends he has to buy and she said "he'll fine one, he's magic!"!!!! So I gotta find one LOL!

Posted 05 December 2012 - 08:28 PM

Good luck......I understand the desperation to find what they wish for.
Keep checking Amazon as they change daily as to if they ship internationally.

They are in Toyworld Catalogue currently for $69-99. Good luck finding one. original.gif

#21 zande

Posted 05 December 2012 - 08:42 PM

That's a great price for them, I rang 6 Toyworld stores here in WA today (regional too LOL) and they all only got the pink, green & purple ones!

#22 niksia

Posted 05 December 2012 - 08:44 PM

Just a thought there are mini fijits out too. Target and Myers had them advertised for around the $30 mark. If you could get a blue one to go with the big one?
