Providing fellow shoppers with inexpensive finds from online stores can be helpful. However, not everyone will have the same reaction to suggested items.

This was the case when a woman who uses the TikTok handle @nothandohlope shared that a mini stepper item she bought from Takealot worked wonders for her, but most social media users could not agree.

According to Takealot, the Mini Stepper Fitness Exercise Machine features a hydraulic foot-climbing mechanism, has a computer monitor and does not occupy much space. The weight loss equipment also displays the number of up and down movements for its user.

It is clear that @nothandohlope is happy with her purchase, as the sound she uses over the video says:

"Show me something that TikTok overhyped but actually got it right. Baby, for me, it's this."
