LOL Surprise House – which shops have stock and where to buy cheapest?

They're out of stock with most of the major retailers, but that doesn't mean that worried parents can't still get their hands on one.

Where are the toys currently in stock?

  • – pre-order now

Technically the Lol Surprise House is still out of stock at Very, but unlike other retailers they are available to pre-order. The store is expecting to have more by Saturday December 22, but you can reserve yours now for £179.99.

  • Amazon marketplace – buy now 

You've always been able to get your hands on the toys through Amazon marketplace, but you'll end up paying through the nose.

The cheapest deal available on the marketplace is for £315.60 compared to a Recommended Retail Price of £179.99.

The most expensive is £469 – more than two times the RRP.

  • Ebay – buy now 

You'll get a better deal on eBay where the toys are on sale from sellers in the US from as little as £173.99.

But you'll also have to factor in import costs of $65.50 and delivery charges of $19.74.

That means in total you'll end up paying around £233.14 depending on the exchange rate you get.

There's also plenty of UK sellers who are auctioning off the toys, but there's no way of telling how high the bids will go.

The cheapest deal available from the UK is £240 and is collection only.

  • Amazon in Spain – buy now

You might not be able to get your hands on a Lol Surprise House from Amazon in the UK, but you can get it in Spain.

There are a few different options available and you might have to set up a Spanish account to get the best price.

Some sellers are even available with Prime delivery, so you could get your hands on the toy well in advance of Christmas.

That said, the toys are really expensive with prices starting at €389.99, which is approximately £350. The RRP for LOL surprise house is £179.99.
