Woman whose boyfriend thought he’d bagged a bargain after buying a sofa for £30 from Argos is left furious after realising it’s a DOLL’S HOUSE couch
- Mix-up shared on Twitter in exchange between British friends Melissa and Priya
- Melissa was at first over-joyed at the £30 bargain before she realised the mistake
- Despite crossed wires, her boyfriend was soon hailed a ‘hero’ on social media
A woman who entrusted her boyfriend to buy furniture for their new flat was left furious after a sofa he ordered turned out to be for a doll’s house.
Melissa thought her partner Kieran had bagged the deal of the century when he found the L-shaped design on Argos while she was busy working night shifts.
She shared a photo of the couch with her friend Priya, a doctor from the Midlands who now lives in Wales.
Stunned by its cheap price, Priya looked it up online – and then broke the bad news by sending her a link to the toy.
The hilarious mix-up was shared by Priya on Twitter, with accompanying screenshots of their text exchange.

Melissa messaged her friend to share progress on her home renovations – but her sofa deal was too good to be true – literally
She captioned it: ‘When people ask me why I don’t want to be in a relationship – I will now be using this conversation with a friend as part of my case…’.
Melissa initially messaged her friend to share progress on her home renovations, revealing: ‘Getting furniture slowly… Kieran bought a sofa from Argos for £30!!!’
Priya shared her amazement before Melissa sent a picture of the bargain, adding: ‘Being delivered tomorrow.’
But all was not as it seemed as her friend soon shared a link and wrote: ‘Mel, you do know that’s for a doll don’t you? It’s for a kid’s doll’s house. You must have known that! It doesn’t even look like a proper sofa!’
An exasperated Melissa promptly replied: ‘I’ve been on nights. I’m gonna kill him.’
The online description of the sofa, designed for 46cm dolls (pictured), reads: ‘This beautiful, Designafriend, wooden sofa and coffee table is the ideal place for your dolls to get together and have a chat and a coffee’
It added: ‘The sofa includes a set of fabric cushions (pictured), so your Designafriend dolls can sit, relax and chat in complete comfort, as if they were sitting drinking coffee in their own homes’
