packaging and global warming

well thats christmas over with for another year - time to start up on the cleanup operation

i have allready been down to the recycling bins with one load and it looks like i will have to go down again with another load if not two

why is there so much packaging and stuff on toys nowadays - it takes about an hour to get into them and a tool box full off tools and sharp knives to get them out

why dont they come with batteries in allready and how come it costs more for all the batteries than it did for the toy in the first place

why do annoying toys batteries last forever and the ones they want to use run out within seconds and need a degree in astrophysics to actually change

why even though i buy several wagon loads of batteries every year does some one buy a toy thats takes the only size of battery you dont have - and who thought up the idea of using watch batteries in toys - have you ever tried changing them !!!!!!!!

but as i say its over again for this year - back to normal again fairly soon

seasons greetings from me and mine to you and yours and where the hell has my screwdriver gone again - what do mean its not working i only changed the batteries half an hour ago


  1. oh the joys of kids and small toys!!

    Glad you had a good time, enjoy your week off and get some rest, you deserve it!!


  2. That's so true about the packaging on toys. Children get fed up waiting for you to rescue the doll, her potty, spoon, dish, spare nappy, bottle, dummy etc. By the time you get them out they've moved on to something else.

    Those batteries are a pain as you say, some toys have them supplied but others don't. My granddaughter's flippin' Hannah Montana guitar amplifier took four large batteries and I bet they don't last five minutes. Like you say though, my daughter will probably be glad of it.

    Happy Christmas!

  3. Been there, done that, thank the Lord I won't have to go there again.
    You think packaging and batteries are a pain, wait, until they are teenagers.
    Enjoy, they grow up too fast.
    All the best for 2010.
