Mum’s terrifying £40 Grinch costume off Amazon left her daughter screaming

A mum has slammed Amazon for “traumatising” her kids after a Grinch mask arrived that was so scary it left her teenage daughter screaming at her.

Angie Dickinson splashed out £40 for the festive costume off the popular online retail company in the hope of wearing it to Christmas celebrations.

But the 43-year-old says it is way too scary to wear out and reckons it is more suited to Halloween than Christmas, reports the Echo.

She fumed: “What we thought was coming was this nice Grinch outfit, but what turned up was like something off ‘Scream’.

“The baby was actually playing with the mask and loving it. But my 17-year-old said: ‘Oh my god, mum, get away from it. Get away from it, it’s awful’. She didn’t like it at all. She was a bit traumatised.”

Angie, who admitted that she should have looked at the reviews before she bought it as they showed pictures of what it actually looked like, has been given a full refund on the outfit anyway.

The mum-of-five, from Blackburn, Lancashire, had previously worn an Elf costume to the Christmas community event, where she had volunteered, but picked up the Grinch costume instead as she thought it would be “brilliant”.

She added: "When I opened it, I looked at it and put it on and I was laughing but I was actually a bit mad.

“But how can you be that mad when you see something like that? It wasn’t even the same colour. It was nothing like I had ordered.

“It looks like an alien. It’s bizarre. I can’t even get over that they would send that out. I thought it would be brilliant, but I could not walk around a Christmas fair in that. People would be running scared.”

Amazon have been contacted for comment.
