    I don't get it either, maybe it is just my kids but I always find with the Bonds items the fabric pills really bad (the little tiny balls of fabric when it has been worn a lot).

    No way would I buy them at a crazy price like that, I usually only buy them when they are 30-40% off anyway...

    Besides that print of the onesie in the picture is kinda ugly lol...

    It's a bit like the second hand nappy market. I've seen rare prints go for around $200 for a 'used' nappy. People collect them and want the whole set. Many have not actually been used at all.

    Default Re-selling Bonds stuff - what's it all about?

    My theory is bonds publicity or sales staff are buying them, to create publicity and to encourage others to pay full price for last season's stock instead of flogging them on sale 😉

    This reminds me of my favourite Asterix story - Obelix and Co, where I first learnt about capitalism.

    They should make an Australian version having Bonds.

    I know no one will know what I'm talking about :-)

    This post is even more confusing than the $182 Bonds suit.

    I love bond zips for babies it was all Ds wore when he was a little baby but I bought mine from bonds for 2 for $30 or when target and big w were having a sale :-)
    I did buy 1 suit from a fb page for $25 posted :-) so they didn't get much of a profit on that

    when ds outgrew his winter ones I sold a box of 000-00 suits plus a few jumpers for $100 (25-27 items and one suit was dd3 an orange tiger one I think it was called I saw them go for $40-$60 I had no interest in making a profit on suits my son had worn)

    The happenings in this historical event remind me of the inflation caused by the radically overstated demand of these Bonds Wondersuits. It would be interesting to rewrite the story using Bonds products rather than 'menhirs'.

    I hope this clarifies my comment. Meanies.

    @harvs 😭 I have to relay the conversation I just had with my DH.
    Me: do you know who asterix and obelix are?
    DH: rolls eyes. What do you think I'm a moron?
    Me: so you know them?
    DH: of course
    Me: well I don't
    DH: that's because you're a moron
    Cue half hour (ok 5 minute) lecture, sorry explanation, on asterix and obelix including showing me websites 😂

    It was so worth opening this thread just to read that post. Gold! *high five*

    I have read most of the Asterix and Co books, but I would say maybe 18 or so years ago. Really should get back into them and try and hook my boys!

    And ps to everyone- I personally find that Bonds suit to be really ugly- it looks like a kid ate a field of fluro flowers and vomited it everywhere. *shudder* good luck to the person who paid through the nose for that! 😂
