They're not really concerned about a bow on a child's head because "that's not the bow I'd be getting".

Now, I'm pretty sure that quite a few etsy sellers do in fact sell the item that's been modeled.

However, these moms think that the bow in the picture is the "display" model and if they were to purchase one, they'd be getting a brand new one (from "stock").

So, there you have it. Another scientific study

That's funny. They "know" they're not getting the bow on someone's head, yet they think they are getting the bow on the floor?! Lol. In any case, this thread just goes to show how people perceive things, and I think this has helped a lot of us. Thanks Maxine!

Those floors do look real. Remember the thread that was here a while back.. someone posted about how bad she felt for a baby because it was lying on a floor like that? She was a HG and even she didn't know the floor was fake.

One lady even asked what a seller would find so appealing about putting a hairbow on the floor. Why is it down there? What's wrong with photographing it on a table?

(these were some of their questions).
When I saw this post I thought of the HG who also asked why put your baby on a dirty splintery floor. lol.

I think babies and kids sitting and standing on the floor is adorable.... but looks like that's where the cuteness should stop I guess. I do like bows on pic frams or just plain white backgrounds.

Great Study Maxine.. NOW what will be your study next week?

I think their perception is that the bow on the girl's head is a "display" model. If it were being sold, it would be listed as "used" because it's already been "worn".

The ones on the "floor" haven't actually been worn (they're just dirty from being on the floor.. well, you know what I'm saying).

Geez, after we got done talking about the "modeled bow" this morning, I got up and went to sit somewhere else. They were chatting up a storm!

I reallu like your photos. I guess I am like the mommies. I just assume that I will be getting a different bow.

Interesting, I would have thought part of the appeal was knowing exactly what you were getting.

I have to say, I love the first two photos, the colors really pop. Not so sure about the last photo though.
