Does anyone have a broken Innotab in their house? Can I have your battery cover?

Does anyone here have a broken Innotab? My kids broke the battery cover off of theirs and the company currently doesn't have the part in stock. If you have a broken Innotab, I'd love to have your battery cover. Thanks!

God bless!

Can you just duct tape the batteries in until they have the part in stock?

Yeah, we're going to use electrical tape, easier to get on and off since the Innotab eats batteries frequently.

God bless!

The battery covers on Ebay are going for like $15.00.
I called the company and they said that they will issue me a "return letter." I can pack up the Innotab and send it to them with the letter and a note stating why I need a replacement, and they will send me a new Innotab. I just have to pay shipping to them.

I'm trying to figure out if doing that is worth the hassle, or if it would be just as much in shipping to send it to them as it would be to buy the stupidly expensive battery cover from Ebay.

People just annoy me. The actual part, when purchased from Vtech is only $3.00 plus shipping. Ebay people are charging like $15.00 plus shipping, just because they know the company is out of stock and doesn't know when the part will be available agian. *sigh*

God bless!

WOW when I saw them they were only $2 or $3. DD is getting an Innotab for Christmas but it sounds like I need to stock up on the battery covers. Maybe the prices on Ebay will go down after the holidays.
