Then you shouldn’t complain about it’s quality? 😆

I just found this review on Very and am a bit perplexed as to why someone would have a Harry Potter themed nursery for their baby and then complain about the poor quality of the costume(...which is hanging on a door without a door handle 😳) when it won’t even be worn 🤔

Why not? When the child is older they many want to wear it but even if not it's reasonable to expect decent quality.

Because if it's crap quality it's crap

Yeah it’s crap quality, but it’s fricking hanging on a door....

They’ve still paid the same amount as someone who is going to wear it has. If it’s crap, it’s crap.
They’ve clearly taken the handle off to decorate so not sure why the 😳 face ....

YABU. If you pay for an item you have a reasonable expectation that it should be okay enough quality for the price. sounds like she thought it was too poor quality for a costume not just a decoration.

I'm just a bit surprised at a Harry Potter themed nursery for a baby, totally missing the point I know. Babies and Harry Potter just don't seem a natural fit to me but each to their own!

If you pay for an item you expect it to be of a reasonable quality and why wouldn’t you give an honest review on a product you spend your money on

Anyone who is daft enough to want a costume for a Harry Potter themed nursery for a baby who'll probably run a mile from anything Harry Potter when they're old enough to wear it, deserves the right to complain about it. If it is shoddy then they should get a refund.

The only thing U is her buying a gryffindor robe for her baby. She doesnt know yet, he could be a Slytherin.

Crap quality is crap quality.
I'd leave feedback just so anyone planning on buying it to wear can see how shit it is.

Not sure what your eye rolling is about. You asked for opinions and got them.

Well op it made me laugh grin

Odd choice for a nursery but each to their own.
Totally reasonable to expect something to be decent quality if you're paying enough for it. Yabu.

It helps inform those that do want to wear it that the quality is poor. Nowt wrong with that. Fair play for taking the time to write the review.

ZippyCameBack Fri 03-Nov-17 13:10:08

Children's costumes are usually pretty poor quality to be honest. If you want quality you usually have to make it yourself or at least pay much more for someone else to.
But I agree it's hard to form an opinion because it's so hard to get past the idea of a Harry Potter themed nursery!

What? It doesn't matter what she bought it for, if the quality is dire, it was a waste of money and she is right to complain. Or do you enjoy being ripped off OP?
Weird thing to get snarky about if you ask that is, not the woman who bought the costume.

SoupDragon Fri 03-Nov-17 13:15:59

They are leaving an honest review of a product. People who want to wear it as a costume will read the reviews and they need to know what the quality is like.

BenLui Fri 03-Nov-17 13:17:55

She doesn’t think it was worth the money she paid. What she’s using the item for is irrelevant.

BitOutOfPractice Fri 03-Nov-17 13:28:37

Why is where it's hanging matter? I hang dresses on my wardrobe door when I sell them on ebay. Are you all secretly judging me?

BitOutOfPractice Fri 03-Nov-17 13:29:43

Oh I SEE! She's only bought it to hang on the door...not for anyone to wear!

FittonTower Fri 03-Nov-17 13:41:11

If I was reading a review I wouldn't care what the review bought the costume for, I'd just want go know the quality. Unless the costume is only intended to be hung on doors than the reviewer can't really complain if she buys a decoration and tries to wear it I suppose. But this item is intended to be a costume, if it's a poor quality costume then the review is accurate , regardless of what the review intends to do with the poor quality costume.

Erm where am I being snarky? The only person being snarky here is you whilst calling me snarky confused. <embracing my inner 10 year old>

Well I found it funny that a woman has a Harry Potter nursery and bought a costume to hang on the door, but claims it’s bad quality 😆. Some people really need to lighten up.

pictish Fri 03-Nov-17 13:46:37

Your entire OP is snarky. You think she's not allowed to complain about shoddy goods and snoot at her lack of door handle.
You have an odd sense of humour.
