I was looking to buy this for my son but after reading warranty T&Cs i dont think i will be holding myself to ransom by ripoff sellers and after reading this on Vtech's website.
Unfortunately whilst VTech are happy to answer any queries on the product(s), we are unable to uphold any warranty claim on items purchased via Ebay. Our warranty is valid only for the original purchaser of products which are purchased from a VTech authorised retailer and is not transferable to another individual or company through unofficial outlets such as eBay. Any warranty queries for items purchased through online auction websites should be directed back to the seller for consideration.
How many sellers are going to honor this warranty?
So if i dont get one before christmas i will wait untill after.
