Chinese Gift Turns Baby Blue- Thanks for the Great Product Quality China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 14, 2010


Living in China brings me the opportunity to buy things here. I guess it is like perennially being in a Wal-Mart…
But anyway, I was making a purchase for my baby nephew and decided on a little blue Chinaman outfit, it was like those worn by the people of the Qin dynasty. The thing was cool, had a furry color and was a vibrant blue color. I shipped it off and was told that the boy loved it and would not take it off. The funny thing was that he slept in it as he was so enamored with the outfit.
Then when my sister went to take it off, she noticed that the poor kid’s skin had turned blue, as if the ink from the outfit was actually merely permanent marker or something. So she went to the bathroom and tried to scrub it off, but to no avail. So, sadly, the kid walked around with blue skin for 4 or 5 days, until his body naturally got rid of skin layers and he turned back to his beautiful baby hue…
Thanks for a memorable present China…
