Disney apologise over cardboard cut-out Doc McStuffins
9:56am Wednesday 12th February 2014 in News
ANGRY parents have slammed a Disney event at Toys ‘R’ Us which claimed youngsters could ‘meet their favourite characters’ from TV show Doc McStuffins.
Many mums and dads contacted the Warrington Guardian after queuing for the event at Toys ‘R’ Us only to find a cardboard cut-out and staff dressed in doctor’s coats.
Youngsters who had queued were dressed in a doctor’s tunic and invited in to ‘Doc’s clinic’ to examine their patient ‘Big Ted’.
One angry parent said: “I’m so disappointed in Toys ‘R’ Us.
“We queued for two hours with children to be told there was no characters from the show just some people in white coats who have no part in the show.
“It was false advertising and there are many children upset.”
A Disney UK spokesman said they were sorry for the ‘confusion’.
He added: “The enjoyment experienced by guests at our events is of paramount importance to us and we will take all feedback into consideration for future events.
“This free event offered young children the chance to dress up as Doc and perform their own five-minute check-up and we hope they found it to be a fun and engaging experience.”
