Mum spots £5 dildo on sale next to children’s toys and sweets at Poundland

A mum has slammed Poundland for selling vibrators – on the same shelf as children’s toys.

Dozens of Bonkin’ Bunny Vibrators were stacked between slinkies, Finding Nemo bath towels and sweetie-themed candles at the store in Tolworth, south London.

Horrified shopper Jana Bardsley-Smith, 52, said the £5 sex toys were positioned right next to the checkouts.

The mum-of-two said: “I was amused at first but then I realised I found it annoying.

“It’s not something you want to see at eye level when you are out shopping.

“There is a place and a time to be selling or buying things like that.

“There are a lot of families in the area. I wouldn’t want my child to ask what it is.

“Thankfully I was on my own when I was out shopping. I would say it’s insensitive.

“If they are going to sell things like that, they should be at the back of the store.”

Poundland has been contacted for a statement.
