The demo units that get sent to the stores to showcase these Maker Faire events and the like are usually not in the best shape when they arrive. Parts are missing, toys malfunction, instructions are in a different language… If it can go wrong, it goes wrong. The people who were stationed at the tables showcasing different toys and Maker Faire paraphernalia didn’t really have many complaints though. They got paid to sit at a table for 8 hours and play with toys.
