Smoke also looks like it is coming off the other end.

The six pack of pots cost just £1.

According to the seller, the money raised will go towards Cancer Research.

The seller wrote: “Welcome to this charity account .

“Please have a look through my items, money goes to Cancer Research on all my items.

“Also if you would like to donate then you can just say how much and I will arrange that before you pay for your item.

“Load of items on here at low prices. Items loaded every day.”

One Vinted shopper, called Courtney, said: “It’s the fact that it’s a kids’ item as well.”

Another, named Grace fumed: “As a smoker myself that would definitely still put me off.

“Smoking so close to a kid’s item especially.

“I don’t near or around my kids, outside only at night once they’re in bed.”
