Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Builders Hat (Toy)
For the first time, I let my six year old select this without having read any reviews. It arrived dented, which was soon explained when I picked it up! This is made of the same material that one would find as an insert in a tin of biscuits! I am quite frankly appalled that Amazon would associate itself with such rubbish. I can say with absolute certainty that the box in which it arrived cost more to manufacture than its contents! I will be sending this straight back and will be fully expecting a refund. I have read other comments suggesting that they can't complain given the price. Are you serious? I spotted an identical item in Poundland, and even they were too embarrassed to sell it on its own, they threw in a high visibility overcoat as well! Lesson learned, I will never again allow the purchase of an item through Amazon without first reading the reviews thoroughly. This experience only adds to my concern regarding Amazon's quality control. I have read recently for example that Amazon were selling 'Samsung micro sd card adaptor and 32GB sd card'. Note the order in which this is advertised. Turns out that the adaptor is Samsung, the actual sd card is non-branded! Given that the adaptor is nothing more than a plastic shell, it would be reasonable to think that this should be the non-branded item, and the sd card should be from Samsung. This reeks of deliberate mis-selling, and is a worrying trend. I abondoned Ebay because of such ploys, and the fact that a deluge of poor quality/ counterfeit items had started to surface there. I thought that I was protected from this by using Amazon, but lately I'm not so sure. I recently read reviews of a phone case for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 wherein a reviewer identified that it was in fact a cheap counterfeit. Amazon, step up your quality control before you go the way of Ebay! Apologies for digressing somewhat, but as honest and faithful customers we should expect decent quality in return for our hard earned and increasingly scarce money! DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM. You will be too embarrassed to hand it to your child.
