An Australian Kmart shopper has discovered an embarrassing X-rated mistake in its children’s range.
Melissa Veldhuizen was shopping at one of the 323 Australian stores when she came across something amiss among the bracelets from the store’s own brand Anko.
The “besties bracelets”, which cost $3 for the pair, should have featured lettered beads spelling the word “besties”.
The jewellery is designed to be shared with a child’s best friend.
But, as Ms Veldhuizen pointed out, one buddy might get more than they bargained for!
One of the bracelets she photographed contained an unfortunate typo — reading “testies”, rather than “besties” — and it’s painfully close to something more than a little inappropriate for kids’ accessories!
Sharing the pic in the popular Facebook group “Kmart Hacks and Decor” Ms Veldhuizen said she had a “bit of a chuckle on my Thursday night shop”.
“I had to do a double take as I thought I was seeing things haha but it made me laugh! Someone was having some fun when they made this one,” she told PerthNow.
Thousands of fellow Kmart fans had a laugh over the mistake and hundreds took to the comments to share their own observations.
“The sales would’ve been higher if they all said this,” wrote one.
“His and hers?” wrote another.
