After ripping through the taped cardboard box my daughter was somewhat perplexed to find the Truck screwed to it's cardboard box with a plastic plate (see picture).
That's right. I will stress that again. Screwed to the box.
It's a good job she hadn't tried to play with the new toy whilst we were still out.
Only another 20 minutes later; after I'd tracked down the screwdriver (still hiding away after the excesses of its last trip out of its little toolbox house) and I'd managed to unscrew the two screws, could she actually play with it.
I don't understand.
Frankly, if I was so intent on stealing Peppa's Museum Truck I don't think undoing two screws once 'dI got it home would put me off.
Secondly, I thought we were in a world that is trying to cut down on excess packaging. So these extra plastic strips screwed onto toys help how?
Finally, why bother with the box at all?
What do you think? Are toys over packaged?
Could you get them out of their boxes easily at Christmas?
