A mum was left in hysterics after her Vinted parcel arrived – in a plastic food takeaway container.

Sophie Jenkins, 30, had ordered a dress for her four-year-old daughter, Elsie, but had a surprise when it arrived in the rather unconventional box.

She shared the “fail” on TikTok, where it garnered 129,000 views and thousands of likes – and left users wondering whether it was “crazy or genius”.

“Having bought a lot of things of Vinted in the past I was expecting a bag of envelopes,” Sophie, an administrative assistant, told NeedToKnow.co.uk.

“It was both shocking and hilarious when they pulled out a Tupperware box filled with my daughter’s dress!”

In the video, she holds up the parcel – a “Chinese takeaway box” filled with the dress, with the delivery label stuck on top.

One person commented: “This is fab lol I’ve had plenty deliveries in binbags very thin ones.”

“Oh my god hahahahaha I love this,” said another viewer. [sic]

“Waterproof I suppose,” one user pointed out.

“What a brilliant idea,” said another fan, to which Sophie replied: “Not sure if it’s crazy or genius!”

“Very resourceful if you ask me,” another user added.

Someone else joked: “I’m safe… there ain’t no way in hell they’d manage to fit a dress in my size in anything other than a KFC family bucket.”

Another person added: “I feel like it’s okay to send things in anything from VINTED.”

Other viewers shared their own experiences.

One person commented: “I had a dress delivered in a Greggs sausage roll paper bag.”

“I had a pair off leggins posted in a pasta bag once,” another user said. [sic]

Someone else added: “Quavers multipack was my fav so far.”

“Not me but when I was dropping a parcel off I seen someone had posted something in an Old El Paso burrito box,” said another viewer.
