I am looking for the Lala Loopsy Mermaid doll - its called Coral Seas or something and has a blue tail outfit that you can take off.

Its selling in Big W for $48 but I can't find one in the stores near me ...I've tried Karrinyup, Kingsway, Whitfords and Mirrabooka ...no luck. I did see one in November but now I can't find one. An assistant at one of the shops said they MIGHT be getting more stock in but can't be sure.

Its the only thing my DD (age 5) wants ...I have bought another Lala Loopsy doll in case I can't find one but she really wants the mermaid one as the hair changes colour in water

If anyone has seen one recently can they let me know....

Thanks heaps

I'm not in WA but I wanted to sympathise....I found the last one at Big W not near me but we were at that shopping centre for an eye appointment, last Saturday. Needless to say I grabbed it, and before my appointment not after LOL!

Doesn't help your DD before Santa arrives but Amazon has them for $24.99- if you decide a parcel after Xmas might work? Santa could leave her a message in her stocking?

A cool trick I read about the Mermaid was a little girl who put it in the fridge instead of water and the hair still changed colour.

Hope you can find one for your little DD

Thanks for your quick replies!!!

I checked the Deals Direct website and I can't get it before Christmas ....My MIL is buying it so I'll have to have it before then (obviously have the same problem with Amazon)
I'm working today so I can try Myer in the city at lunchtime (I know they dont have it at Karrinyup) or might head out to Toys are us tonight and have a look.

According to the Big W website there are still some in stock in stores SOR (don't know how up to date this info is). If you are desperate maybe give them a ring?
Good luck.

I'm in the same boat OP.

DD1 said wanted Santa to bring her Sky High Tinkerbell. So I got one. And then she changed her mind and now wants Sky Hi Perrwinkle but I cannot find one anywhere! Amazon has them but it's too late now.

I actually have that Lala Loopsy Mermaid doll in a laybuy that I am picking up tomorrow. I am going to return it but that doesn't help you much because I am in QLD.

Hope you find one.

hahaha we do have an office in Brisbane but I can't exactly fly to QLD to pick up a doll LOL

I hope you find your Tinkerbell  biggrin.gif

The BigW website isn't correct as it says there is stock when there isn't one of the assistants said it isn't updated much this time of year!!!

Think I saw quite a few in k-mart in Wanneroo too, definitely a mermaid one but didn't pay too much attention to colour etc.

Sounds like you're sorted anyways.  original.gif

Thanks to a very kind EB member (Christine30) I now have one hidden away under my bed - thank you !!!!!!!

Stores must be re-stocking as I checked out Kmart Innaloo on Friday and they didn't have any!

DD said she knows she is getting one ...I started to worry that she had seen it hidden under our bed. Then she went on to say if you really wish for something then Santa brings it for you and she has told everyone she wants one so she must be getting it LOL  smile1.gif

Great news OP. I saw one in BIG W this morning (I'm in Canberra, thought I could express post it)) and came so close to buying it for you. Thought I'd come home and check to see if you had had any luck and bingo! Merry Christmas!
