URGENT: where to buy mini portable fan for pregnant wife? [GE]

My pregnant wife and I are leaving tomorrow on a beach holiday and I would like to find a mini portable fan (ideally with a water mister!) before then. Has anyone seen this for sale anywhere? Have been looking online at Fust, Mediamarkt, IKEA, Interdiscount, Jumbo, Conforama, etc - but no luck yet. Would be extremely grateful for a tip!

Something like this: https://www.fr.ricardo.ch/acheter/me...v/an912646134/

Unfortunately, I'm not sure whether you'll get it by tomorrow.

That's why I linked to their outlet stores - one simply calls in advance and they'll reserve it. Obviously that requires local language skills.

Hey, that's what we're here for. As a sign of appreciation, you can always name the kid after one of us...if it's a boy "lost" or "dodgy" and if it's a girl, "curley".

Interdiscount - second only to Migros for the cheapest Chinese crap.

I bought something at lunch from Migros that was made in Germany - I think I might go back and complain!

How can I trust it has been made properly when it clearly hasn't been put together by a Chinese child with nimble little fingers?
