I've just got back from my first xmas shopping trip which was pretty unsuccessful! I was looking at toys for my 3 yr old but they were all wrapped up in so much packaging I just thought my daughter would get so fed up trying to get into them she'd lose interest. I ended up not buying any of them - any tips on how to beat packaging so my daughter can actually enjoy her new toys would be much appreciated!

Big sharp scissors.If it's not the packaging it's the tags.We usually get a few toys out at a time,starting with something easy to get out of the box, Christmas morning once all the unwrapping's done,so they're busy playing with one new toy while we unpack the next.
I think you'll find very few toys that escape this overpackaging.

if you want to avoid bad packaging, fisherprice seem to restrain themselves well, mellisa and doug are the least packaging ive seen.

oh i hate that stuff that you have to hack away at, always end up with a cut, awful stuff!!!
the wire twists andrew just has a pair of wire cutters in his pocket on the day and cuts them all, does take less time but we have to be really carefull catching all the bits cuz some get sharp.
