My kids went to the Royal show and had a great time. THey had saved up their pocket money all year for this event. They all brought these pairs of speakers for their ipods. You plug it in and water which is lit up jumps to the beat of the music. They are really cool and not cheap at $50 each. But I was happy they brought these not bags full of lollies. Anyway 20 minutes later one of the speakers failed to work and the sound came out all crackled. They were so disappointed as you can imagine and I was annoyed as they were not cheap. So the next day when they were at school I went back to the show and the lady was kind in letting me in with out having to pay the expensive entrance fee again (but I did have to leave my drivers licence with her which was fine) ANd I eventually found the stall and explained the problem and they were very good as they exchanged them with no fuss. But I noticed on the Monday they were $25 each. Half Price!! So they were so ripped off. I was tempted to say something but was grateful she exchanged for a working pair so left, but it just goes to show don’t go at the weekend as things are double the price!!

  • That would be terribly disappointing, especially since your children saved very hard, and the to discover them half price would be annoying


  • That’s shocking, the sudden price drop is horrid! Just when you’re happy your kids chose something useful and not bags and bags of lollies. Then you find this out! Ah well, lesson learned for next year I guess


  • royal ahow


  • Good on your kids for saving up, unfortunately for gadgets and gizmos the show is usually a rip off.


  • u always get ripped off at the show .


  • I’m so glad you kids got a set that worked, shame they still got ripped off
