I feel you on this one simby. I will be getting this for my niece for christmas. I dont care about the price. I will love the look of excitement when she sees it and that to me is priceless. Every year a hot toy comes out and its not like I will be paying $100bux a month forever like a cable/internet bill or something. Christmas comes once year. Thank god Face With Tears Of JoyThumbs Up Sign So I'll dish out a hundred bux

This is a Hot Deal forum. Offering something, even if it is garbage, at regular price (which this is) is not a Hot Deal. I don't care if it's offered on eBay for $5 million.
It's a hot deal because it's hard to find for retail price, same with SNES, Fingerlings and other limited edition toys/gadgets.

Damn we've been doing it all wrong

Scalping children's toys is where all the $$$ is at
It's funny I decided to get a complete set of Fingerlings for fun with the intention of keeping enough to give to some kids as presents and sell or return the rest. I sold one to family, another to a lady who was very happy to get it for cost and then put the unicorn on a bidding site where I got over two and a half times what I paid for it. I got this vibe that the lady who picked it up thought I was the biggest scum on the planet. There is money to be made if you buy a lot though. I only bought one of each, and could have bought hundreds more had I wanted, but didn't intend to be a reseller.

Like last year with hatchimals if you have a child in the right age range this is a hot ticket item that is on a lot of little girls wish lists
LoL Surprise fills in themselves are a top seller this year and this limited diction giant ball with 50 surprises in side is even more sought after
Thanks OP
All of my nephews and nieces don't ever go in for the 'it' items. I think this is largely on the parents for allowing this system to perpetuate.

Well a little bit on the soulless corporate money making marketing juggernauts...but we're the ones buying the items haha.

$100 is a lot of tacos (wait does Taco Bell still do that $5 for 5 tacos?)

I dislike this item. I dislike the entire idea of this, I don't even like the idea of kids liking this. On top of that, this is regular price...

Having said that, Christmas is coming. For anybody that have tried to buy this, they know exactly how difficult it is. It's like buying the SNES Classic at regular price. If you do, it's already a hot deal, and you don't even have to line up to buy this LOL Surprise thing. Anybody who is ignorant and says this isn't a good deal, is just ummm... ignorant. If you could easily buy this at regular price, then yes, it's not a good deal, but you can't.. you have to pay a premium (which becomes the "REAL" regular price. I hate this item, but this deal should be in no way downvoted, especially this close to Xmas.

I bought 2 in the States a while back because they are impossible to find here. I don't have to like it... as long as my niece likes it. In a way, with many other gifts I give, you pay for their moment of happiness, you buy it for a smile. I paid $79.99+WA State taxes which is even worse than this deal as the exchange is so bad...

Thumbs up for this stupid ridiculous toy deal... but I'm sure is much appreciated by many.

There are already quite a few on Craigslist for ~$125

Not too confident about scalping this one

Ohhh so this is an LOL Ball, other day I was at a friends house while his kid refused to take medicine and he had to keep threatening to throw the "LOL ball" in the garbage :).

So thankful now my kids are of the age they're only looking for overpriced clothing and shoes :P

Gotta start them young. I like it. Get them addicted to RFD so they stay away from drugs.
