    It looks like their whole budget went to pay someone who knew how to use Photoshop! Sorry this happened to you.

    Take it back to the store and pitch a total fit. Stores WILL STOP DOING BUSINESS with companies that cause them to have too many returns.

    I have full intentions of taking it back soon, just havn't gotten around to doing it yet. It's just sitting in our garage right now, waiting.

    I hate making returns... [​IMG] I always feel bad bringing something back that I wanted! I do have a good reason for bringing it back though.

    Just get her one of those two-foot-deep, round pools that require no blowing up. [​IMG]

    Dont get the big slides they sell either. Someone I know did and they POP easy..not to mention they are SMALL

    Looks like youre missing about 1/2 of what you paid for![​IMG]
    If you look close enough its not even the same wale. You didnt get what was on the box
