Sneaky Marketing at Walmart Stores - Beware Funkeys Hunters!

I know that most Funkeys addicts would never fall for this, but what I saw at Walmart made me chuckle at first, then get upset. RIGHT next to our beloved Funkeys, they hung pegs with some digital frames that are called "Funky Frames". They have NO relation to Funkeys, but I guarantee you that they were placed there to promote through confusion. They know that there are going to be parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, you name it that know that some kid in their family loves these little "funky things" and when they see the frames with a similar name right next to the product in question, some will fall for it and buy them out of kindness. I think it equates to false advertising myself. What do you think? Discuss it here...
