In The Night Garden Play Mat

Options
Evening All :beer:

I was here last night having a browse and saw a thread for In the night garden playmat from Amazon for £9.99.
Went to order this evening, and it is now £29.99!!! :mad:

So... I had a gander round the usual suspects (Play, Tesco, Asda, John Lewis etc) and they were all a similar price. Then I had an epiphany :dance: so along I went to BBC shop, and there it was, in all it's In The Night Garden Glory for just £6.99!!! :j

And if you use promo code BBCR08 you get free delivery!

The images on Amazon & BBC are the same though the description is not. I've ordered, and hope I get to play with it soon, then let me 19 month old have a go :p

Hope someone else finds this useful!

    Hang on a minute, just been having another look... well search criteria, and the thing I've ordered is just the accessories - not the playmat!!!
    Sorry to those who may have ordered - but could it come across as false advertising given the image representation is the same as amazon for different products???

    thats really odd if the picture is the same although i suppose if the description is the same you cant really argue if they actually state it is accessories. This is a bit like people advertising things on ebay saying phone when actually its a phone part you are getting when you read the description, its just a way of making you think you have got a good deal and it means people who dont read the description will buy it and then cant be bothered to send it back and they still make a profit. Soo annoying though for you, if you didnt want the accessories though maybe try cancelling your order? hth a bit

    Yeah just got to decide, think I may wait until it comes and see if they're any good to let my son play with as it is.
    What is strange is that when you go to Amazon and search playmat it comes with the mat. Search BBC and it comes with the accessories, you have to search playset to find the mat!

    that is very odd, maybe even if you do get it and like it maybe just drop them an email and say the item was a bit misleading, after all if they dont know of the fault they cant correct it. They will probably be glad of you letting them know, providing they arent a company that likes to mislead you in order to get more consumers buying (saying that most do!) Lol
