Did everyone else realise that the lol giant ball is not a ball?

Went in to Smyths to pick up my pre ordered giant lol balls today to discover they are actually a disappointing half ball shape. In the photos they are angled so they look like a ball. I feel cheated! I was envisioning a giant ball that could be unwrapped like the little balls, what I have appears to be a few of the normal doll balls in a half ball shaped case.

Serves me right for buying them when I knew they would turn out to be tat.

😂 What!?

Oh I've just googled them! Ok they sound quite cool.

Jesus Fucking Christ, they're £60! 😱

I've heard of them thanks to MN and have even read someone reviews (saying they're awful) even though I don't have dc who are interested in them but I had no idea they were so expensive!

But yeah, I'd expect a ball too, OP!

They couldn't find enough shite for a full ball...

Return it. Then make your own. Paper mache. Better stuff inside

Did you not consider watching a YouTube unboxing video before preordering to determine whether they were a good use of your money? Shame on you wink most fans agree they are not worth the £60, you are better off buying 4 big sister and 4 little sister dolls as for the same price your dc will have 8 dolls and more fun unwrapping.
Can you return easily?

I was sad about this too!

I know it's overpriced tat, but my dds really want them and I don't think a set of normal balls would be the same for them.

Yes, I should have done my homework before ordering.

I was just surprised and wondered if everyone else knew their half-ball secret.

I bought it too and was disappointed when it arrived but my daughter has been asking for one ever since she saw it in the smiths catalogue so Ive kept it, she will be very excited on Christmas morning!

Stick it on eBay, people are desperate for them and paying silly money. Then do like a pp advised and buy a few of the smaller ones.

I thought half the ball had been stolen when I saw one in the shop the first time.

No but they may be disappointed anyway when they find out it’s only half a ball as well. I think I’d take the risk of them being disappointed they didn’t get what they wanted but got an awesome alternative instead, then the disappointment of getting what they want and realising it’s shit
