To not buy a product due to erroneous apostrophes?

It is an otherwise appropriate product and to be fair, there is only one misuse of apostrophe. I can even see why they have placed it; if in doubt add an apostrophe, right? Wrong.

But, it makes me think they have not had their website proofread, which then leads me think they are not such a professional business. This in turn concerns me should there be a problem with the product in terms of customer service and aftercare. And, if I am completely honest, it makes me feel a little bit irrationally grumpy.

Am I Being Unreasonable? DH thinks I am being so.

oh yes, it's a fabulous funny book; a must-have on the bookshelf of any wannabe pedant.

When DD1 was born we got the usual gifts from people and I refused to put her in a babygro that said "Little bear's like to walk in the woods" on the grounds that if the unwanted apostrophe was contagious I didn't want her to catch it.
