To the Management of Toy Makers in China...

May I compliment you on your workers tenacity in putting the toys in their boxes.
(Do you really think humans can take those things out?!)
What ever you pay your workers...they are worth every cent. They do their jobs very well.
It takes at least 30 minutes to take out all the wires and screws, staples and tape. As a bonus with every 30 minutes it takes to get the toys out, we get a 45 minute toddler meltdown. Because we can't get it out fast enough. So if we buy 6 of your toys, we have all day entertainment.
I think from now on I'm going to base what toy I buy for my child on how long I may think it will take to get it out of the box.
If you think this is an anti-theft devise, I do believe you are wrong. I think more people are apt to walk out of the store with it, then stand there and try to take it out of the box...the store would close long before they got it out. And for the nice people who don't steal, you could cut our price in half by saving all that plastic & ties & screws. I know you would save our sanity.
See ya same time next year.

This year,we took all of kiddos toys out of the boxes,and contraptions,then wrapped them.This cutting out the waiting for mom/dad to open them for her,and also cutting down on the huge increase in trash we compile on Christmas,we got to throw it out a week earlier.Funny out of all the toys,she only liked her new tinkerbelle shoes anyways,so we could have avoided toys all together.
