The end of wrap rage?

Whoo hoo!

The end is - almost - nigh for dastardly packaging!

Impenetrable clams, 55 twisted metal ties to make a two inch plastic toy behave in its box, and in the US alone, 6,000 injuries requiring hospital visits each year - all because manufacturers are lunatics (and male).

"a new era of non-hostile containers"

Whoo hoo!

While I'm certain this human folly will not be fully resolved in my lifetime, I'm just happy knowing that the day will come when children don't grow old waiting for their toys to be released from clam shell & metal tie incarceration.

Packages you won't need a saw to open

  2. Extremely good!

  3. Ditto from me!

    And, it's me who is growing old mate!~
    Have you tried(lately) to remove Scoop, Muck or Dizzy, Rolly too, from their packaging?

    By the time I've freed the bastards, Mark has just about reached meltdown!!

  4. Funnily enough, I'm not overly familiar with Bob the Builder Kath.

    He always struck me as being a tad gay.

    Well, he is a little too neat for a builder, don't you think?

  5. The Golden Child is more into Toy Story toys, Thomas the tank engine (speaking of gay) and his pals, and Leggo (not gay, not gay at all), and such.

  6. Now that my daughters have outgrown toys.

  7. But wait: there will be grandchildren Cube!
