Many of us will know all too well the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with making a gorgeous-looking online purchase, only to unwrap something utterly unrecognisable once the postman arrives. One shopper however may well have just experienced the online shopping fail to end all other online shopping fails.

The amused TikTok user says she recently decided to treat herself to a large fluffy rug from Shein and was pleased to see it cost a thrifty £13. From the look of the photos, the snowy white rug appeared to be plenty big enough to cover a fair bit of her floor, perfect for transforming her bedroom space on a budget.

When her Shein package actually arrived, however, the rug was absolutely minuscule, more suitable for Barbie's Dream House than any human room, as noted by one particularly amused follower.

Taking to TikTok, where she goes by the username @crackermania, the baffled 17-year-old could be seen clapping a hand to her mouth in shock in a video revealing what her supposed bargain buy really looked like.

Warning her followers to 'always read the reviews' first, the US-based teen could barely contain her laughter as she compared a pic of the advertised rug with what was actually delivered. Showing the titchy-tiny patch of fabric next to her foot for scale, it was clear it would have been too small to use as a doormat, let alone a cosy bedroom rug.

Her followers were left in absolute hysterics at the sight of the dishcloth-sized rug, with one person remarking that it looked like 'a rug for ants'.

Another person jokingly suggested: "Maybe it grows if you put it in water?"

A third chuckled: "Awww d***, they gave you a sample!"

A fourth person took a more positive view, laughing: "But like it’d be cute to go on a nightstand or vanity."
