How many times have you opened a packet of biscuits and found a random dud which didn’t have a filling…? Or you read a label which was misprinted or not cut properly? Ok, these are pretty lame examples but surely every once in a while you would’ve spotted something dodgy about a product, no? Every time this happens to me, I get such a kick out of it. It’s almost as fun as finding a four leaf clover. Almost. Except I’ve never found a four leaf clover.

Anyway! Back to dodgy products. Heike Bollig runs a kooky little site called Errors in Production, where she collects a variety of products with manufacturing errors. Looking through her collection definitely made me chuckle.


“Although I actively seek these objects, I mostly come across them accidentally or friends and salesclerks pass them on to me. In the attempt to further develop the collection and to keep it alive, I would be grateful for your support.” Heike Bollig

So there you have it. Next time you spot something faulty worth sharing, why not get in touch with Hekie.
