Overall a good time was had over the Christmas period but while unpacking some of the kids’ toys a thought occurred to me: do manufacturers ever pause to think how their customers are supposed to get these things out of the flaming boxes?? I lost count of the number of cuts I got while trying to remove those annoying metal/plastic ties behind sticky tape behind some sticky goo in some cases! Hard to remove plastic blisters glued to boxes, or worse, more hard plastic packaging that’s been so well constructed you need an industrial set of cutters to even get close to opening were another obstacle to easy access, and what if you wanted or needed to keep the packaging? No bleeding chance!
Come on guys, is it really necessary?
