Special Agent Oso Bear @ Disney
Our eagle-eyed friends over on HUKD were given an email heads up yesterday from the Disney Store:
"We are expecting this item to arrive back in stock tomorrow. Therefore, please visit our site regularly to avoid disappointment"
If you've been desperately trying to get your hands on of these Special Agent Oso Bears then I suggest you take the day off work (say you're snowed in or something!), have your credit/debit card at the ready and keep hitting refresh.
For the last two months we've been sitting in the PlayPennies office utterly bemused at the brouhaha surrounding Special Agent Oso.
Firstly, none of us knew who he was until Lynley wrote about him, then we discovered that he's HOT!
Not in the literal, good-looking or out of the back of Del Boy's Reliant Robin sense - but the whole country seems to have gone mad in their quest to secure a Special Agent Oso Bear.
I just had a quick scout on eBay and found one that sold for £48! That's more than three times his rrp - I hope he's REALLY special for that price!!
If YOU are just as clueless about Special Agent Oso as we were, let me help you out. He's a yellow and blue panda and, believe it or not, is a special agent - who'd have known! - who comes to the aid of children who need help.
I've never seen the TV programme, I might just have to check out an episode or two to try and understand what all the fuss is about that's causing a £15 Special Agent Oso Bear to sell for more than three times that!
I'll keep watching the Disney Store for those magic words 'In Stock' - if you want one, GOOD LUCK!
