Thrifty pre-schools might be looking to save a few pennies on educational materials in the current climate, but this might be at the expense of quality if they shop at a certain supermarket.
Morrisons came under fire last week when a Pounds 3.22 set of alphabetical building blocks included a series of spelling howlers including "yatch" instead of "yacht" and "umberlla" instead of umbrella. The blocks even suggested "X Mas tree" for X.
One woman, who was buying them for her toddler granddaughter, said: "It's not much fun if you find out that the toy you've been using to learn to spell is full of mistakes." Morrisons later withdrew the toys from sale and is offering customers a full refund.
