DS and his little friends were really into Bakugans about 12 months ago and he received a couple for Christmas last year which he played with a lot.  Of course they went out of fashion to be replaced by Trashies etc. but in the last month his group of friends has been playing with them again.  One of DSs just broke and the other was lost by a friend at school, and he was upset that now he doesn't have any.
I stoopidy suggested that he ask Santa for a replacement. I thought I was clever at the time because I was needing a couple of extra 'stocking filler' type things for Christmas morning.
So I went to Kmart (where I bought them last year) and they don't stock them anymore.  Has anyone seen any in the shops recently?  We are in Melbourne.

I did see a few in a Big W store a little while ago. I think I'd be phoning around, I think if shops have them they will only have odds and sods as the fad seems to have passed. Mind you, I have heaps of the buggers here that are no longer touched,  if you'd posted this earlier, I could have sent you a few in time for Christmas!

My local woollies has only just ran out of them the last few weeks , so you may have luck with your local store?? Aside from that there's Ebay but that doesn't help for Christmas ..perhaps a birthday gift instead
