Broken Toys 4 Us

[Picture of toy box display]I AM ALWAYS AMAZED THAT STORES DO NOT SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.

How can a store hope to catch shoplifters if they cannot see the problems with their displays? I am fed up with goods that have no prices, and goods that are misplaced under wrong prices and descriptions. It really is tedious, and it is getting worse.

[Picture of broken toy box lids]My Christmas shopping brought me to a toy store where I saw toy boxes. Please click on the pictures to enlarge.

Yes, all the lids are broken (not a sure sign of good quality) — but look too at the price tags and descriptions. The nearest one states

BLUE CRATE WITH
RED FOLDING LID 75LT
12.99″

This is where you will find a blue crate with a BLUE lid. Now look along at the next one — the one under the RED crates with the BLUE lids, it states:

“UNDERBED BOX BLUE
WITH BLUE HANDLES
8.99″

No-one seems to have thought of how a customer would be able to reach up to the top box safely.

[Picture of Spiderman Monopoly]I could have taken dozens of pictures, but despite their obvious bad eyesight, someone would have eventually spotted me snapping away, so this will have to serve as an illustration. However, I did manage a quick snap of this inexplicable product on my way out. yes, it’s Spiderman Monopoly! Quite how one is reconciled with the other is just beyond my imagination. I gave it a pass.

This is a world going slowly mad.
