why do toy companies make the packages harder to open every year?

If i slice my hand open trying to break into one of these toys is it worth filing a lawsuit?

  • I completely agree. Even a simple Barbie is a nightmare now. Straps, tape, screwy things. Are the afraid of theft? Damage in transit? The toy running away?

  • To keep people from shoplifting them from the packages.
    No, that's not worth a lawsuit.
