    I need a favor from a UK'er

    I can't find an American vendor for the Bermuda Pond Pals... and the ones on eBay are crazily overpriced.

    How big are these things? Mail rates seem to be hideously expensive. What's a cheap mail company?

    The cheapest for us to the US is the normal US mail, via airmail. Royal Post perhaps? It's definitely not FedEx or UPS for something that is over a kilo.

    How big? Good question man. I'm just being asked to locate one for a my mother. She saw it somewhere.

    One kilo is 6.42 ($9.49) from Royal Mail, but I'm not sure what size you can go up to, it just says "small packet".

    Dude - this better be for your mom. You are just NOT allowed to own this and a wallet that says 'Bad Mother F**ker' on it.

    No...not allowed.

    Hey, Asheep. Did you ever find out the prices for the actual thing?

    I'm willing to Paypal some money to you to send this.

    If you're in no rush, I can get sheepy to mail them to my uncle in UK, then I can pick them up and send them with one of my crew to NYC and they can mail it from there...

    Should take a week-ten days

    alrighty, if Sheepy is still up to it, I'll send him my uncle's address, or he can drop it in the Hotel were the crew stays, and they can pick it up and deliver it for me, then I'll send it to NYC where they can mail it for you

    Well the store I went to didn't have any, they'd sold out. They did have one on display though, in their show garden, and it's massive! I thought they were little things, but it's quite big, about 12 inches tall.

    Anyway they're 14.99 (including VAT) which right now is $24... I'll be in London soon so I can try their other stores if you'd like, but you might have to take el-Ignoramus up on his offer of delivery, as I'd imagine they'd be expensive to ship.

    Do you just want one or a couple? I'm going to ring the stores when I know I'm on my way.
