Girl’s £6 Christmas present arrives from eBay – and leaves her mum in hysterics

A mum from Teesside has been left in hysterics after a present she ordered online for her daughter arrived and looked nothing like the picture.

The married mum-of-three had bought a stuffed worm toy from Ebay for her seven-year-old who is reportedly obsessed with the film Labyrinth.

Due to her daughter's unusual interest, she had searched high and low on the website for toys associated with the 1986 movie, reports TeessideLive.

Like an early bird, she claims she ordered the £6 item at the end of November so it would arrive in time for Christmas, but unfortunately this worm wasn't worth catching.

When it did finally turn up on January 3 this year, she couldn't believe her eyes.

The woman, from Hartlepool, said: "I saw the little cute worm, William which lives in the labyrinth and thought my daughter would love it for Christmas.

"The picture of the toy looked just like the puppet in the film. So I ordered it at the end of November and was told it would be here by December 20.

"To be honest I completely forgot about it until it arrived in the post on January 3.

"On opening it all I could do was laugh. At first I thought it must have been a joke. Or a very poorly constructed dog toy ordered by my husband.

"It looks like a photo of the worm has been printed onto material then stretched across the filling so it's eyes and mouth are all distorted and the blue fluffy tufts are falling to bits."

The description of the toy from the Ebay seller says (sic): "The might be a bit color distortions due to different computer resolutions."

The mum shared the pictures of the advert and the actual worm on Facebook to the amusement of her friends and family.

She added: "When I checked the description it advised that it may look different to the advertised photo – they can say that again!

"My husband thinks I should demand a refund but it only cost £6 and it's given everyone such a good laugh, I think I might keep it just for the memories.

"I thought about giving it to the dogs but even they turned their noses up at it."
