anyone else irratated by the fact theat it takes a scissors, screwdrivers, wire cutters and sometimes a vicegrip to open a simple childs toy ?

in the mean time you child is sitting their screamin because they wnat to play with it but it takes 20 minutes to open , becuase of course the toys theifs will do all that in the stores and not just hide it somewhere and walk out with it

  • My 2 yr old got a lot of stuff for christmas and since hes our 4th child, we've been opening toys for a long time. THIS WAS THE FIRST time that we had to get a screwdriver. This damn $3 toy was bolted to the plastic holders. I told my husband that it seemed crazy and expensive to package a cheap toy that way. How ridiculous. We finally got it open.
