A Wymondham family learnt the true meaning of the phrase 'you get what you pay for' when a glance to their daughter's school spelling test confirmed Poundland had made a spelling mistake on the hanging hearts they had bought to decorate the house.
Mum Sharon Hastings said: 'We bought ours a few weeks ago in Poundland in Anglia Square but put it away without really paying attention.
'But last Friday we got it out again to decorate and noticed the heart read 'misteltoe kisses' instead of the correct spelling 'mistletoe.'
'We then checked my daughter's spelling test and we all laughed about it as even Maisie who's six could spell it properly.'

'I checked the spelling online to see if it was American, but no! They are even selling them on their website with the wrong spelling.
