A merry Christmas to you all - except ...

... the manufacturers of packaging for Children's toys. You may wish to repent of the agony you inflict on parents of excited children who have to wait for 10 mins as Dad blunts yet another pair of scissors on industrial strength wire which now holds all toys in place. ( And then there's the search for the screw driver to get at the battery door ( oh why ! ) - only to discover the bloody thing takes AAA batteries and all the shops are closed for Christmas day).

I bet the three wise men never had these sort of problems.

Here here. We spent half an hour trying to get my oldest's remote controlled Thomas the Tank Engine out of it's box, never mind working and I don't even have enough space left in the dustbin for all the packaging. Hope you had a good Christmas nevertheless ;-).

That's hilarious! Over here we just shoot the packaging.
