Even if your manager ordered half of what she did, that would still be way too many menus for any one restaurant..
It really depends on the restaurant and the menus. In many places, kids' menus are use-once disposables that have drawing/marking games on them and sometimes double as placemats (these probably weren't placemats, as they needed to be folded). A large, popular "family" restaurant could go through 12,000 kids' menus in a matter of months.
I'm guessing this dumbass coworker plays dumb a lot to get out of working. You'll be in for a miserable time until they a) quit or b) get fired for some bigger FUBAR.
That's on the manager for trusting someone else's word without checking. Sorry you have to deal with the backlash of your coworker's ineptitude as a result OP.
Distance yourself from this person, least you be drawn into the depths of idiocy which you may never able to escape, forever trapped in an endless cycle of mediocrity, your friends will abandon you, your family disown you. Forever trapped. Or just tell him/her to check properly next time and move on.
