Can't get what I want from Amazon UK!

So it`s 1135pm - again - and my husband and I are still trying to purchase a "go diego go reascue back pack" for my son, who wants to be Diego from the show "go diego go"!
The only Co. selling it is Amazon and we found one that would be perfect but -- UK Amazon does not ship to CH!! GREAT!!
I know what you are thinking just a) make one yourself (yeah right) b) tell your kid tough you can`t be Diego (might as well tell him santa is not coming either) c) fly to the UK purchase one and yeah everyone is happy!!
So this is my please to you!! If you are going to be in the UK and could bring one back I would owe you big time (remember i`m married, so no funny ideas) OR if you know someone that we can send it to and they will send it us again I would owe you big time!!
I know this is crazy but heck these are crazy times..right??
And thanks

Re: Can`t get what I want!!

I'm currently in the UK and am driving back to switzerland mid november. I'd be happy to receive it at my UK address and send it to you from the uk (or from switzerland once I've driven back to valais).

I'd have to open it on receipt to ensure that it doesn't contain anything I wouldn't want to take through / send through customs. PM me for contact details and to make arrangements.

Hey I am actually having the same problem! My son is in love with Diego too, and I was trying to buy birthday stuff for him. Have you had any luck on any website? Thanks in advance

I'm in the states ATM and I understand how some things are necessary when you have kids...we're all nuts in a way I suspect. Is this the one - http://www.amazon.com/Dora-Explore-A...dp/B000JKUT20/ ? If so, I'm ordering a bunch of stuff in the next few days and get free shipping so PM me and I'd be happy to schlep it back for you.

Re: Can't get what I want from Amazon UK!

What about checking out Amazon fr or Amazon de? You use your same e-mail and password when you sign in. (Of course you have to contend with German/ French!)
They both deliver toys to CH - I have successfully bought a number of toys from both sites - useful when you can't get back to the UK, and CH just doesn't sell what you are after!

Oooh.....I have just checked both sites, and they both carry Diego rucksacks and various other Diego items - different prices and designs, maybe one of these is what you are after?

That's strange - I get things from Amazon UK shipped to Switzerland. Do you have an Amazon account?

I have ordered lots of things from Amazon UK to CH with no problems at all, but for certain items, you get as far as the delivery address, and it comes up that that particular item cannot be shipped to CH, and they ask you to change your delivery address (eg. when you order clothing, electricals, household, etc.etc.).
I guess the Diego bag that the OP wants falls into that grey area...
