    Default Help! Stupid toy packaging!

    How the honk do I get these plastic bits out of the bottom of the car? They are really hard plastic and they don't snap like other fasteners I've dealt with before.

    As you can see I frustratedly tore around the cardboard to get it out

    It's a Peppa Pig car if that helps.

    They look screwed on? Try a screwdriver in the hole bit

    OMG THIS IS MY HELL.

    Yeah you need a screwdriver. Or if you're patient and lucky you can rotate the actual toy and just be able to remove one of them because you don't have the right size screwdriver and your son is screeching at you from behind the baby gate.

    Oh ma werrrrd!

    They are screwed on! I wasn't examining it in the right light so I couldn't see the screws.

    I MEAN, SCREWS? REALLY?!!!

    And my screwdriver is too short to access the screw.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1436440606.944005.jpg

    Okay, crisis over. I somehow forced that stubby little screwdriver down and got the screws out.

    Thanks y'all

    The worse packaging has got to be that vacuum packed edge ones.
    The kind they package scissors in for example...the kind you need scissors to open!
    Well if I'm buying scissors maybe I don't have scissors to open the packaging to get to my new scissors!
    Grrr
