‘I couldn’t believe my eyes’

The festive season is upon us and you can guarantee that there will be the need to buy something fancy dress for an event – either for yourself or the kids. But what we don’t really expect is to see something X-rated in amongst the Queen Elsa and Moana costumes. 

Sydney, Australia mom-of-two Katrina was shopping for her daughter’s end-of-year concert costume at a popular party store in the suburb of Alexandria when she stumbled on a package that forced her to do a double-take. 

“I was on the hunt for some white gloves for my daughter’s Christmas concert and then saw something that I couldn’t help but laugh at,” she told Kidspot. 

The item that stopped the mom in her tracks was a rather hilarious X-rated genie costume complete with a lamp around the groin area with instructions saying “rub me.”

“I couldn’t believe my eyes!”

The ‘Genie in the Lamp’ costume was on sale at the store for a bargain price of $29.50 and while initially hilarious, the mom was shocked to see that the costume, clearly intended for adults, was sitting in amongst common children’s dress-up items. 

“When I first saw it, I did a double take and giggled before taking a photo of it and sending it to my friends. But then I thought how bad it was that while I was there looking for kids’ items that it was there,” the stunned mom shared. 

Luckily for Katrina, her children or any other child with other customers were not present, so the item went unnoticed by little, innocent eyes.

The mom did a double-take after seeing the questionable costume.

“I was glad that the kids weren’t with me because my 9-year-old is definitely old enough to notice that there is something a little rude about the image. Not for the ‘rub me’ comment but just the fact that the spout is in the area that it’s in,” she said. 

Still, the mom was able to see the funny side of things and revealed that while it was definitely not something she would show the kids, she isn’t exactly ruling out buying it for her next adult-only dress-up party. 

“I didn’t buy it but I did tell my husband that this will be his next costume,” she laughed. 

Accidentally X-rated Christmas items are shocking customers

Earlier in September, just as Christmas decorations started to roll out in stores, another shopper was strolling around Big W when she stumbled upon a box of festive lights that appeared to be a little risqué.

“So um…. tell me I’m not the only one that thinks these are really REALLY festive… I mean a bit HARD to miss yeah???” she shared in the Christmas Moms Australia Facebook group.

The shopper was referring to a box of Mirabella Genio Festoon Lights, which are being sold in store and online for $45.

“Whether you use this set indoors or outdoors, they will brighten up your space,” the retailer’s website describes the decorations, which can be controlled from your phone using an app. 

The shopper wasn’t the only one who noticed the X-rated shape of the lights. And if you haven’t figured it out already, they’re laughing because they appear to be in the shape of a penis!

“Another way you could say lighting up your life,” one shopper commented online. 

“My kids saw these yesterday at Big W and they were cracking up at the penis lights lol,” another added.
