Darn Toys R Us!

Recommended Posts

First of all, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

 

Here's what's on my mind-

 

 

I was out with my dad the other day, looking for a Tamagotchi 4.5. He was starting to get pretty mad at me since I had him driving out everywhere. ^_^ But anyway, we went to a multitude of stores that didn't have them yet. Surprise. When we hit Toys R Us, they said they had them! So the lady took us to the aisle and showed us a sign that said "Free Charm With Purchase Of Tamagotchi 4.5" then took us to the Tamas. They were version 4. I understand she may have been mislead to believe these were 4.5, but still. I said to her kindly, "I think these are the V4," not wanting to sound rude. "No, they're 4.5." she said bluntly, and the package even said V4 in the corner. I pointed it out to her (again kindly) and she took it to the scanner which confirmed it was NOT a V4 and indeed a 4.5. She even was sort of giving us an attitude as if she didn't want to be helping. Still, I wasn't going to be fooled and buy one I already had. We went to another Toys R Us who did the same thing. And when we left the first one, we heard that lady talking to her friend about us and laughing.

 

Did they know that it was the V4 and were they trying to cheat us out of our money? Or was it a misconception? I realize that not all employees are bad. Please, no flaming, I respect all Toys R Us employees.

 

So what was on my mind in this topic? Everytime Bandai comes out with a new tama, a whole batch will sold out in an hour! I can never seem to get one. I feel like I'm always on the short end of the stick. Do you guys get that feeling?

 

Thanks for reading!

Call up that Toys'R'Us and request to speak with the manager. Explain the problem about the stock difference - the V4 has been input into the system as a V4.5, and there are no V4.5 in stock. Leave out the "one of your employees treated me like an idiot" until the manager understands the scanner and product problem entirely. Heck, tell the manager to check Bandai's site if needed, and forward the information to other regional stores - mention that those Toys'R'Us stores will most likely lose a lot of customers to Walmart, Target or other local stores because the V4.5 is new and is in high demand.

 

When I went to Toys'R'Us, I asked some guy, probably in his late teens, early 20s. Anyways, he was very helpful - of course, me being 21 and asking for a Tamagotchi, I tried to be as sweet as possible to offset that "Er, this chick is way too old to be playing with these things" mentality that I'm sure he had in his mind (lol!).

 

He checked the computers and even went to physically checked out back. Unfortunately, they had no V4.5, and there was only a V4 on the shelves - even the accessories were out of stock.

 

I'm sure working at a toystore can become nerve-wracking at times - dealing with little kids who may be used to getting their way, crying babies, et cetera. I have no idea what that woman was trying to pull on you and your father, but you indeed were the more mature person.

 

I wonder if you could try to have someone hold a Tamagotchi for you; just until you can make it to the store, if you are able to go that day of delivery.

I would just buy it online. That is what I usually do to get my tamas.

I never go to Toys R Us - too expensive. Walmart.com is the cheapest place I've seen V4.5s so far; they're $14.29, and the three or four colors that have been released so far are in stock every time I check.

:D Thanks to everybody who posted here. Oh, and yes, I did almost blow up in her face. I've had past experiences with Toys R Us where I wasn't too pleased with them. However, I realize that isn't really the employees who are at fault here. Thanks for the advice, Mahinva. I should call up the manager. It isn't fair if a child who is new to tamagotchis and doesn't really know which version is which happens to get the wrong version because Toys R Us tricked the poor kid into getting it. Thanks guys!

Since they are sold out in stores quicker just buy it online. I know it will take a while but atleast you will probably get one. That's what I did since my mom wouldn't take me. Try Toys R Us, they will most likely have them.

That's pretty bad. Why would they do that?

Anyway, I got my V4.5 at Target. Maybe you'll find one there. At Target, they're cheaper than Toys R Us.

At Toys R Us, they're $14.99 and at Target, they're $14.39.
