When kits go wrong

A couple of years ago I purchased a kit of Good Luck Bear (Care Bears). I LOVED the Care Bears when I was young and I still have my Love a-lot Bear plushie. I started to sort everything out in the kit and noticed that this kit sucked. The colors were off. The instruction said how many of each color and I counted and there was one color that wasn't even listed. The green for the body was not all the same shade, I counted three times to make sure that I wasn't making a mistake, it said 25 strands of medium green and with the two odd shades there was 25 strands. I only used the colors it came with because I hate to be wasteful. In the picture you can see the different shades. I'm going to be very picky next time I want to buy a kit. But it's cute anyway. It has been a while since I have done this kit, and I believe that I actually tossed the chart, it was MCG Textiles I think. And I have heard from others that some of their kits have been like that too.
But at lest it's still cute!
