☯ ISSTH Chapter 742 ☯

Our current apartment in China has tile floor like most houses do. That gives BDB no place to roll around and (eventually) crawl and walk. Therefore, we recently bought a play mat to give him a safe place to do so. I bought it at an official Toys-R-Us store in one of the biggest local malls, so I assumed the “Disney” product I bought would be real and not fake. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure it’s actually fake. See the evidence after the jump.

Clue number one. Okay, this is not anything mindblowing, but the design is clearly odd. The numbers are organized in a weird way that doesn’t seem very logical. Not necessarily a dealbreaker, I could envision finding this product in America.

Clue number two. Alright look closer at this image. Isn’t there something obviously missing? There should be a spoon pouring the honey, right? Uh…. Okay fine, it’s plausible that an official Disney product could have a mistake like this.

Clue number three. Major typo in the “copyright” information? Okay, theoretically this could happen with an officially licensed product, but when you combine it with the other weird things… I feel highly doubtful that this product is actual Disney merchandise.

In China, anything and everything can be faked. I’ve bought fake bottles of coke, fake alcohol, and fake who-knows-what. The fact that I most likely bought a fake Disney product at an official Toys-R-Us store just goes to show that it’s almost impossible to guarantee that what you’re buying is the real deal.

On another note, Baby Deathblade conked out while playing on the mat, so I snapped a quick pic:

          1. Same here. Read the comments and got too curious and scrolled up. Now my eyes have been tainted…

  1. You’ve misread it…

    It’s not a Toys-R-Us you were in.

    It’s a Tos-Rus!

    Take your son to Chuk-i-Cheeses.
    Where a child can be a child.

    Ah I could spend so much time making fun of chinese copyright infringements.

    Fake playstations anyone?

    1. It taste like coke, only it’s fake

  2. I heard in the news of fake rice on China? Plastic molded to look like rice and then some flavourings to deceive the taste buds. That’s some next level shit right there!

    1. Get outta town, just googled that and it seems to be a thing xD
      What the actual F, their Dao of greed is very profound… it surpasses even our favourite turtle

  3. The concept of original/official/licensed product doesn’t really applied there anymore.

    As long as they are safe to use, then its fine 🙂 Even BDB cant help but to falls asleep on it.

    1. That’s the thing, most fake things are not “safe to use”. Baby milk powder with toxic chemicals is something that we saw not long ago on the news.
