That has got to be typo! I don't have any kids of my own but I won't definitely spend that kind of amount on a SINGLE toy. That's like enough to buy me the Speedy30 LV bag I'm saving for and the Chanel sunglasses and I can buy 2 of each for those with the amount of ONE dvd game? No way. LOL.

I know! it could furnish my whole house (frugally) I see the url is no longer good, that they removed the item from that page - I have not seen where they put it back into the system at the correct price. I was secretly hoping they would send me one for letting them know of their typo, hehe.

I know! it takes us around 3 months to make that much. I am pretty sure it was a typo though... surely the decimal point was placed in the wrong spot and it is supposed to be $40.94

simple lego constructor for less than 50$ was my dream at age of 8 ... 4100 in my opinion is waaay too expensive , do you know how many more toys can you buy him for 4100 ?

really makes that $50 lego set seem quite reasonable in comparison doesn't it? I went to shopzilla to price compare it just to see what it is being offered for elsewhere and it is between 19.99 and 29.99 It seems that circuit city made a typo putting the decimal in the wrong spot.

No Way!! It must be meant for someone who doesn't have everything! That's way too much to spend on a gaming system!

It has to be a typo - it is selling for $24.99 on Best Buy - So unless Joey comes with it --- I don't think so.

I think it is insane to spend $4300 with tax on a toy. I would rather spend this money on their education (private school or tutoring) or invest it for college or even invest it in their Roth so they can retire early and rich. The most expensive toy I have gotton my kids are the legos (Lego Mindstorm $260 and NXT $250) and I think they have educational value and gets them interested in Engineering.

When they are of driving age I will have trouble spending that much on a car, much less a toy for in the house. That's ridiculous. My boys need to learn to take care of things much better before they get expensive stuff. I sure would think it's a typo, did you try contacting them about it?

I did email them about it suggesting that it was a typo and they were not likely to sell any units the way it was listed... I just now checked the link and the page says the item you are looking for is not available. So, they've removed it, I wonder if they relisted it with the proper cost or just nixed it for now.

Yikes, a bit much don't you think...lol The only way I would pay that much for any toy... would be if I was independently wealthy...lol I'm sure it must be a typo but do you think anyone has ordered it...lol Blessed be, Mari
