The Internet is one of the greatest things that ever invented and you can do literally anything with just a click of a button.
You can stay in touch with your friends from around the world and talk to people you would never normally have crossed paths with.
And, of course, there’s Internet shopping.
These days, you can order pretty much anything from the comfort of your very own home. You don’t even have to put on pants!
However, this power comes with its share of risks. That’s why you should always read the fine print before you buy anything online. Otherwise, you may end up disappointed like these people.
Either this person has gargantuan feet, or the kiddie pool they ordered was not quite what they were expecting.
I’m gonna go with the second one.
One of the best ways to get extra info before purchasing a product online is by reading the reviews.
Thanks to this one, I will not buy purchasing the top for myself. I will be buying it for my cat, though.
Apparently, this listing was only for the yarn to make the blanket shown in the upper right side of the picture.
Still, though. That’s not even close.
And yet, so very, very far.
As anyone who’s ever tried to take a selfie can tell you, perspective is everything.
Amazon really got sneaky with the pictures of this horrifying teddy bear.
Before booking a stay online at a place with a “private balcony,” be warned that you may actually end up with something like this.
On the bright side, you have a stunning view of the neighbor’s house.
You really can’t blame the customer on this one; they clearly received something that was nothing like the listing.
Unless that little girl is a really little girl.
Here’s another AirBnB listing.
This one promised a view of the nearby church. They’re not technically incorrect…
I think this is my favorite thing that ever happened on the Internet.
I’m sorry the mask didn’t work out, but at least you could bring joy to those of us who are seeing these pictures.
This is clearly not going to work as workout wear.
On the other hand, your outfit for your next formal gathering is settled!
Oof. This one stings.
I’m guessing she didn’t order the “cropped and poorly sewn” version. But that’s exactly what she got.
I love when people put the clothes on anyway, even though they clearly realize that what they’ve received is not even close to what they ordered.
The product is horrible, but it still has some value in being able to provide a laugh for everyone.
Oh, sorry, did you not want a coat that looks like it’s actively trying to swallow you?
“Calm down, skin”?
No. YOU calm down, mask.
If I ever receive a stuffed animal like this in the mail, alpaca it right up and ship it back.
I mean, sure.
I can sort of see the resemblance. At least you can look at this total failure through rose-colored glasses, though.
If you ever see a price online that’s too good to be true, it probably is.
In most cases, you’re either going to end up with a shoddily made product, or a product made specifically for a dollhouse.
Who needs rings to go around your fingers when you can just balance them daintily on the tips of your fingers instead?
It’s the hot new thing.
I really hope this person got their money back. $750?!

Hey, as long as it has the right logo on the outside, does it really matter what’s on the inside?
Yes. Yes, it does.
Well, this is significantly less cute.
And significantly more disturbing.
Unfortunately, the backpack you ordered to use as a carry-on bag probably isn’t going to work.
On the bright side, though, Shadow loves it!
If the one on the left is “RARE,” the one on the right must be SUPER RARE.
So at least there’s that.
At least they included the actual seat part of it. That’s pretty important when it comes to chairs, ya know?
This next one is super embarrassing…
There’s a lot I could say about this one.
But I think the emoji pretty much expresses it all.
I’m learning some very important lessons from these people’s failures.
Mostly, I’ve learned to never, ever buy clothes online.
I’d also probably avoid purchasing cast iron skillets online.
Unless I’m looking for something to fry a quail egg in!
This shirt is just one step above buying a plain black T-shirt and whispering the name “Chance the Rapper” next to it.
Quite the fail.
The top picture looks like a cozy and whimsical coat.
The bottom picture looks like a poorly thought-out costume.
At least this next one came with some consolation candy…
What is it with people accidentally buying teeny tiny backpacks on the Internet?
Also, why are people selling teeny tiny backpacks on the Internet?
The second picture makes this one of my favorite fails yet.
At least she can still smile about the whole debacle. And props to her for assembling it anyway!
A lot of these fails have been people accidentally ordering the miniature version of something.
This is quite the opposite.
Talk about a bunch of bananas, amiright?!
Something tells me this person has a lot of banana bread in their future.
This desk is perfect for those times when you only have “a little” bit of work to do.
And if you’re looking for some little shoes to wear, this next person has you covered…
Yep, you’re definitely out of luck there.
But if you know any babies, they’re about to look pretty darn awesome.
Maybe the “Bleu Jays” are just the fancier version of the Blue Jays.
Like the cheese. Or something.
If you ask me, that room could still really pull the room together.
In a Borrower’s house.
Well, these boots actually weren’t made for walking.
Better luck next time.
These chairs are perfect for when you can’t afford to take time off work but still want to take a little vacation.
Don’t forget the sunscreen.
