Mommy's Lil Helper: Frustration Free Packaging

Mommy's Lil Helper: Frustration Free Packaging

Thank Amazon for small favors! This Christmas, my children can open their presents and I can cut back on the band-aids. The online retailer is introducing Frustration Free Packaging just in time for the holidays. For every parent who has drained their bank account on gifts and then spent their holiday quality time pulling those toys and trinkets from the wretches of the containers that they are tethered to, plan on having some free time and flawless hands. Amazon is currently offering this Ecological packaging option on some toys and electronics.

This is awesome!! I hate that packaging has become all about marketing (It has to look good on the shelf in order to sell). I mean I understand why they do it, but those packages are awful not to mention dangerous sometimes and not good for the landfills either.

I really hope they add more products to the list soon. This is such a great idea! I will be so happy to not have to get out the wire cutters just to give my child a simple toy!

This is great! Hopefully people will also be more likely to recycle the box since it is all cardboard!

i think this is FANTASTIC... and i wish more stores (like babies r us and buybuybaby) would do the same thing... i'll definitely see what they have in this packaging and consider it for christmas now.

I never understood why stuff is packaged with so many wires and taped spots anyway, so thank you Amazon for proving to me that it's NOT necessary. Although since the box is cardboard, it still doesn't prove my theory that it's unnecessary for presentation at a store as well. Anyway, that's awesome. I wish stores would follow suit since I'm not doing any online shopping this year.
