Default NZ plugs

Hi everyone,
Is it possible to buy NZ plugs?
I ask because I dont think we have seen any for sale since we have been here.
Not the extensions types (we have some of those!) but loose individual plugs. I know you are supposed to get a qualified electrician to handle anything electrical but surely people change their own plugs on stuff brought over from the UK.
Thanks in advance for any replies

Tip: buy one from each store and try them out....some of them a b---grs to wire up, and others are better designed.

(or so said the fully qualified electrician who wired all my plugs )

Travel adapters would not have done us, when we moved here and the container turned up I had to purchase 47 new plugs, which indicated our shocking reliance on electricity.

You can get adapters for about $NZ1.80 each in 10+ quantities from here: http://www.focalprice.com/detail_HT262S.html

Have seen exactly the same adapters on Trademe for $12 each + $5 shipping.
