I Need Your Help!!

This is Maxi from 'Roary The Racing Car' and he is my son's most favouritest thing. They no longer make this toy so he is in high demand (especially with the big man in red having hogged alot of them for his sack), they have been selling (in second hand, well played with, scratched condition) for between £30 and £50 on eBay etc.

Now I love my big boy but just cannot justify this much for a plastic yellow car.

A woman at a local playgroup bought one for her son for £1 in a charity shop, I showed myself up big time when I offered her £15 for it but she turned me down as her son loves him too.

I have searched high and low for one, they come in talking and none talking and at this point either will do! He is quite big and has friction wheels (so he keeps on going when pushed).

I am asking any of you who visit your charity shops or carboot sales to keep your beadie eyes out for a Maxi. I will pay up to £15 and then of course will pay you the postage back and send you a huge big thank you present! I am not hopeful of one for Christmas but we need a Maxi to make Nathaniel look like this;

Thank you so much in advance and happy hunting!!

Aww Dasie, I hope you find one, my Mum bought Twiglet one from our local church charity shop about 3 months ago for 50p. They thought it was broken but Mr Twigs soon got it fixed and Twiglet loves it. Have you asked on Freecycle? as lots of people are probably clearing out unwanted toys before Christmas.
