What is one of the 'less than perfect' items you've bought at disney?
 
Are there any items you've bought at WDW or DTD that broke easily, or you've been extremely unimpressed with them?:confused3

My son bought a watch that fell apart. Admittedly, he dropped it, but it fell apart pretty easily in a situation that I would expect a watch to withstand. Other than that, we have been very happy with the merchandise.

In 2009 I bought a zip up hoodie sweatshirt. It was $50 and it shrunk so much the first time I washed it I could never wear it again. I am even one of the crazy people who wash everything in cold water and dry on low, then hang it up the rest of the way to dry. I bought another hoodie on the same trip and it was fine though- I still have it my rotation almost a full 4 years later. Guess its just hit or miss? :confused3

The remote control cars. We bought the RC monorail and it only goes backwards. I can put up with that but we also bought the Lightning McQueen RC car and after two months of use it died, and cannot be repaired. Those suckers cost $30-40 each! Such a disappointment.

The monorail. My dd wants a new one every time but they always break!

I have a mickeys hand potholder that is pretty useless as a potholder. :)

I have a couple of these! Definitely no good for potholders. I gave them to the kids to play with. :)

I have bought the same earrings twice and they fell apart after wearing them once. All the clothes shrink badly so I now buy larger than I need.

For Christmas I got my DIL a set of the Pink teapot,travel tea mug and another of the things in the set...All of them state in a small sticker "for decorative use only". The stickers were NOT on the pieces in the store. We only saw them after she opened the presents.
And I have a watch with changeable watchbands that has a working watch, but the bands fell apart after wearing each of them less then a week.
Most things are just fine, if overpriced, but hey, we all know that. :rotfl:

I bought a drawstring backpack at DL in August. Then in Dec I used it at WDW on a 3 day trip and it completely fell apart.

I bought a limited edition watch at Downtown Disney and the band broke within the first couple of weeks. I got that fixed by a jeweler and it broke again in another area about a month later.
Won't buy another one. Very disappointed.

Bought the 2009 dated pullover hoodie and while I don't think it shrunk in the few times it was washed, it pilled up really bad. Unfortunately it happened to both mine and my son's. The hoodies I bought in '03, '10 and '12 have held up to multiple washings with no issues other than normal wear and tear. (The '03 one is getting frayed at the cuffs but I consider that normal for the amount of use.)

The charm bracelets for kids. I bought them for my daughters on one of our first trips thinking we could add charms every time we visited. At least 3 out of the 6 charms we bought broke off within a month - and they didn't even wear them very often.
