Default Long shot...but here goes

Start laughing now because you are going to think I'm crazy when you hear what I'm looking for.

My sister's oldest child will be 22 months in December, and her youngest will be 12 months old then. She is due again in March, yes....3 children under the age of 2.

My sister is desperately searching for a TMX Elmo, the one that everyone is looking for. My search has taken me to many "out of stock" websites and the Fisher Price site said it's so popular that even they (the maker of Elmo) won't have it in until 2007.

Does anyone know of someone that has one they are willing to sell? I'm not crazy enough to pay the $100-$200 that people are asking. Just hoping that someone has the Christmas spirit and is willing to part with one at a reasonable price.

Thanks for reading this and keeping your eyes and ears open. If you have an answer for me please private message me.

Kathy

Hi KAthy
Do what I did.......go to a major retailer and ask what day there trucks come in.....this time of year they will come 3-4 times a week......make sure you visti the same store every day and you will get one...stick with target or toys r us.it is my understanding they are still getting some with a linit of 2.
I got one last week at Toys R Us for my cousins 2 year old son........I love th thrill of the hunt. If I see one I will pick it up for you and if you don't need it I'll ebay it..............
good luck and wish me luck

I know Toys R Us in Asheville had them because my mom was just there with my brother and niece and when they got there they were all gone but my niece was crying that she did not get one and a lady came up to her and said its ok little girl I was able to get 2 and I would be happy to give one up for you so you could also have one. So my brother jumped on that and gave the lady the money for one of them.
I guess today was the day Toys R Us got them in there stores and today was the day that they sold out of them again.
Good luck

Has anyone seen the or heard about the TMX Ernie? I think it is a German version of TMX Elmo. Milissa, you have family in Germany don't you? You know I could use a TMX Ernie for my niece.
