Woman Orders Toy from Toys “R” Us, Receives 800 Rounds of Ammo


Depending on how you look at it, this woman actually got a great deal. Jasemin Stephenson of Virginia Beach was shopping for her six-year-old son online when she found the perfect birthday gift: a foam Minecraft sword from Toys “R” Us. When the toy arrived on Tuesday, however, Stephenson found that the retail chain included something that’s not usually in their lineup.

In the box that held the foam sword were boxes of Sellier & Bellot 9x19mm ammunition. In total, the mom said that her order came with 800 rounds, which held a market price of around $180. Compared to the $20 foam sword, it could be certainly seen as a bargain. Stephenson did not see it that way.

“It is very shocking. You are ordering from a Toys “R” Us store, you don’t expect to get ammo in a box of toys,” she told USA Today.

Stephenson said she has no idea where the ammunition came from since she certainly did not order any, and that the inclusion of the rounds was “very irresponsible” on the part of Toys “R” Us. A spokesperson with the company said that the chain is currently investigating where the ammunition came from.
