When did AMAZON ( direct seller), start selling USED JUNK! WTF,
on July 25, 2013
I have two other MOrphibians for my children. I have the whale and the Rover. So My grown up baby, AKA my husband, wanted to order another, just to join in the fun. I saw the price of this one, and said, okay,. for HALF THE PRICE, I'll bite.
WELL, what OMG, what in the world. The item arrived, in a plastic bag, dirty,and missing a screw. Yes, I purchased via AMAZON, not a 3rd party retailer. Meaning, " ships and sold by AMAZON". Yep, that's what I mean. Which means, items are new in box, right? WRONG, WRONG WRONG, this item was used, covered in black goo, and looked like, it came from my kids room. That dirty. Gummy, patchy, and with fingerprints, all over.
I was so shocked, to see this. Since I am a AVID, and ultra frequent buyer on AMAZON ( get a package every 2 or 3 days). Seriously. I am a top buyer, I purchased everything for my children on AMAZON. From PAMPERS, DIAPERS, TO the all their furniture. I am a "prime" member, and also a member of AMAZON MOM. So I do love, amazon.
But they dropped the ball, on this one. The frequencies do conflict, but if you are using the controller, it corrects itself. Strange but true, if you are not actively using the controller, any of the morphibiams remotes will make it go. So that will be tricky for a small child. and will require the kids to play in tandem, not together. Meaning, I move, you move. Racing will be nearly impossible.
The off button was jammed, so the darn thing is always on.
I would say, for 20 bucks, GET A NEWER VERSION, of this toy, and spare yourself, some heartache.
here is what I wrote in my return comment:
there was NO INDICATION, that this item, was USED. it arrived dirty, and NOT in original packaging. This was a returned item. and should have been listed as USED.
