Consumer Reports Oyster Awards

Consumer Reports handed out the “Oyster Awards” for most difficult to open packages.

First place was the Uniden Digital Cordless Phone, taking 9 min 22 sec to open. Tied to the cardboard in more than 15 places, Barbie was runner up. She promptly locked herself in the Dreamhouse Bathroom and scarfed and barfed the entire Teenybop Teen Time plastic set.

As tipster Hubert Sorbet notes, “A simple solution would be to avoid untying anything and change her name to Bondage Barbie.”
