    Oh my god-
    i am just on ebay, looking for pieces for taylor.
    ve got him a police helmet and badge and was looking for handcuffs.

    I found this and looked at the price 99p BARGAIN i thought.
    looked across and it said £22.80 postage???
    so thought maybe its a typo, so i clicked on it
    ooooohhhhhhhh nooooooooo
    it was a typo alright!
    theyre asking for £23!! for kids handuffs!!

    what are they doing sending it by gold plated pigeon!! :haha:

    oddly people have actually bought them!

    WTF?? Omg what a rip off!! Clearly they are doing that hoping people don't look at the postage. When I buy something I must admit I rarely check P&P but that is just mad :rofl:
