As the mom of a 7 year old and a 4 year old, I gotta ask, "WHATEVER HAPPENED TO RECTANGLES?" I did all my wrapping yesterday, and I was again struck by the fact that toys come in boxes of all shapes, but almost never a nice, standard, easy to wrap rectangle. I have a mental image of package designers laughing maniacally over their new and diabolical box design. Okay, I am indeed aware that gift bags exist. I just really like to see my kids rip into good ol' paper on Christmas morning. Plus, it makes sneaking a peek a lot harder on wrapped presents than on gift bags. Or maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment. So, to all package designers everywhere, give us a break! Embrace the rectangle! --Nikki p.s. Expect a rant about getting toys out of packaging after Christmas. I have scissors, wire cutters, and explosives ready to go for Christmas morning!
