Anybody want a Mailchimp collectible Freddie?

Last month I signed up for Mailchimp and soon thereafter recieved an email inviting me to accept a free gift. There were several varieties of the Freddie available. I don't need more knick knacks so I picked one that was described as a chocolate Freddie. I got it today.

It's chocolate scented vinyl. So... a knick knack. Free to a good home if you pay for postage. It looks like the middle picture on the top of this page:

I did open it, which is how I discovered it's not edible, not sure if that reduced whatever value it has. But I JUST opened it today, so there's no wear or damage.

Your link seems to be broken. I wasn't able to find a working version.

Sorry Asmovian, I don't know what's wrong. It worked for me just now, from a different computer than I originally posted it from. It's basically a 3-D model/toy of the Mailchimp monkey. But entirely brown like milk chocolate.

Maybe it's firewall-related on my work computer. But hey: it was a bump to the thread, anyway.

I'd love it - I'm a bit of a mailchimp geek and trying to collect the figurines

Only thing is, I'm based in the UK - do you know how much it might cost to have it shipped here?

Cool! Can you PM me your postal address? I'll look up the rates and PM you back to let you know and then you can decide if it's worth it.

We found out that it's exhorbitant to ship to the UK, sadly. So the Freddie is still looking for a new forever home.

Synoptico seems to be a drive-by poster, so this Freddie is still available.
