Opening toy packaging can send you to the emergency department

Don’t you hate clear plastic “clamshell” toy packaging that’s impossible to open?

Turns out you’re not alone. So-called “wrap rage” is a growing cause of ED visits, caused by those who futilely attempt to open packaging with a variety of sharp instruments.

Luckily, among other sensible companies, feels the pain, and is starting to adopt “frustration-free” packaging.

That day can’t come soon enough.

    Last year for Christmas I bought one of the specialty tools to open those clamshell packages…..

    Guess how it was packaged?

    You know what I hate? I hate those plastic-wrapped twist ties that they strap toys to that take hours to undo. I understand theft protection but please come up with a better system. Don’t get me started on the plastic packaging that has NO easy way to get into them. Hey Santa, all I want for Christmas is the toys already unwrapped. Tell the elves to go easy on the twist ties please! Thanks.
