12+ Cool Online Orders That Didn't Live Up To Their Photos

Lex Gabrielle 31 Jul 2020

Everyone loves shopping online — there's no denying it. Especially when we can find some pretty cool things on the internet, online shopping is where it's at. When you're in a store, things don't hit the same way they do when you see them on your computer screen. Plus, it's easy to put in your credit card and order absolutely anything you want. But the problem with online shopping is that not everything shows up the way we think it will.

1. A bench that ended up being the perfect size for a Barbie doll.

Always read the fine print when you shop online, even on sites like Amazon. Clearly, this bench is made for a Barbie or a doll of that size, and not a human being.

2. This dish rack is definitely not what this person ordered.

Reddit

Everyone would want that dish rack that looks stunning and high-tech. Getting this small, tiny, holder instead? Well, that's a disappointment in itself. Plus, it's really more of a basket than anything.

3. I'm so confused.

Why would Wet Ones make a package that is this size? Who is it even for? A tiny bird? A doll? Definitely not a person with real hands or real needs.

4. There's definitely something missing here.

Reddit

Unless you're a magician who can see the non-existent numbers on this scale, there is something missing completely. How can you measure anything with no numbers?

5. This looks... gross.

Reddit

How can anyone eat this? It looks like this cupcake was moldy and sitting in the packaging warehouse for years before this person ordered it. Send it back — don't risk the moldy cupcake.

6. Size matters.

Reddit

Whenever we order something, we expect it to be the right size, especially when the picture shows it to be a specific proportion. But, it looks like this is just for a dog. Maybe a tiny dog at that.

7. Teeny, tiny carpet.

Sure, this product claims to be a shag sheepskin rug. But this looks like it's made from super cheap materials and it is definitely not the same as the photo. Photoshop, Photoshop, Photoshop!

8. How?!?

Reddit

I would want those awesome cool cloud lamps, too. But if I received these cotton balls in the mail and a water bottle, oh man, I would write a terrible review. The ad did not specify that this was a DIY situation.

9. Camping chairs for...who?

Reddit

Researching the type of chairs you're going to take on your camping trip with you is vital. But these are made for... I'm not quite sure who.

10. Two left feet? No problem.

Reddit

While this is something that cannot be helped, it's definitely disappointing when you're looking forward to getting a pair of new shoes, and get two left shoes instead. I hope this person was able to exchange the second shoe for a right one.

11. She ordered a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey and got... this.

Reddit

This is a hilarious outcome, but also, if I paid for a book I would want a book. EBay sellers have some tricks up their sleeves, so watch out!

12. Should be labeled "less stuffed."

Reddit

These aren't even stuffed as much as a regular Oreo cookie. They should be labeled "the less stuf" and not "the most stuf." The poor, poor people who fell for this package. I hope they found a new snack after eating these.

13. How does this even happen?

Reddit

This one makes absolutely no sense to me. How can they advertise a giant and insanely large cushion and then send a throw pillow? Yikes. Get your money back.

14. Something is definitely not right here.

Yeezys are supposed to go on your feet, not become a giant Halloween costume that you can walk around going trick-or-treating in. How did this even happen?

Load Comments

15. That's definitely not a blanket.

The picture looks like something out of a dream — a huge, comfy, and cozy blanket to wrap yourself up in. What was delivered is just a giant sham. Is she supposed to knit it together herself?

16. A kiddie pool for... tiny fish?

No adult, nor child, would ever be able to fit inside of this kiddie pool. So, whoever manufactured it should rename it something other than "kiddie pool." Maybe "foot pool"?

17. Honestly, I'm not even mad at this.

Tumblr

Sure, he may not have realized that the entire wave was made out of pugs, but this is one shopping fail that I'm not even mad at. I'm actually happy with this outcome.

18. He tried to surprise his girlfriend with his face on a pillow.

Reddit

This is something that stems directly from everyone's nightmares. How scary AND awkward. I hope she laughed at it, but definitely doesn't bring it with her to college.

19. You need an Olympic-sized swimming pool for this float.

Reddit

Who has a pool that is big enough to fit this big, huge, gigantic unicorn float? Certainly no one who lives in New York! This is another lesson in why it is so important to read the dimensions before buying something online.

20. Halsey has some explaining to do.

Twitter | @carohlina

While it's a hilarious mistake. No woman wants to walk out of their house wearing a choker that says "hoeless." Or, maybe they will — you know, for the irony.

21. Yikes, that's not good.

Reddit

While some things online may be cheaper than in stores, you never know how cheaply it is made. This punching bag turned into a huge clean-up project. Well, at least they'll still get some exercise by tidying up this mess.

22. That's not right.

Reddit

That's not even the way you spell that word! I would like to speak to the person who printed this mug, because they clearly do not like their job very much.

23. What is this EVEN?

That bed is absolutely stunning and, of course, anyone would want one for their own room. But what she got in the mail? Oh my gosh, return immediately! Get a refund! Write a nasty letter!
