Widget Love / Living Social RetroKids Touch, Play, and Learn Toy is a HUGE SCAM!!! Internet

. [continued below]....
....Living social advertised a "deal" for $25 instead of about $70 for what they portrayed to be an ipad knock off but more for kids. They made it look like an interactive learning device that kids could download apps and play games on. However, it took them over 7 weeks to send just a piece of plastic with a paper on the front with a picture of different apps. Widget love is a complete scam. Seriously, this is wrong and they need to make it right. Below is their description:

#1 UPDATE Employee

Retro Kids - Livingsocial

AUTHOR: Widget Love - (Canada)

Hi there,

We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your order. In the description on the Livingsocial website, there is no mention of any LCD features, nor any features that allow you to download apps. The description states that there is no glass, the item is lightweight and powered by 3 AA batteries.

This is a kids toy that allows you click on letter buttons to learn words and letters.

We are sorry you feel misled. We would have been happy to help should you have contacted us upon receipt of this product. Please provide us with your ORDER ID number so we can retrieve your details and provide you with additional help and compensation as we would certainly like to see you as a happy customer!
