A shopper from Dubai said she was baffled when a pair of fake Apple AirPods larger than her head arrived from Amazon.

The woman, called Aleezay, claimed she ordered what she thought were cut-price AirPods for Dh230.

She posted photos of the massive comedy props on Twitter.

Apple's in-ear Bluetooth ear buds have become a fashion statement they were released in 2016.

But fakes are often sold online for a fraction of the usual price of about Dh670.

Although Aleezay said she expected the pods to be fake due to the knockdown price, she claimed to have no idea they would be supersized.

Since sharing an image of the AirPods last week, her post has been liked more than 385,000 times, with almost 73,000 retweets.

Last year, a 17-year-year-old American high school pupil named Aaron Beckman made headlines when he created a 25-centimetre tall speaker in the shape of an AirPod using a 3D printer.
