The first time I opened a box of these books I knew with certainty that at the least, 75% of the figures that come with those books would be stolen. The packaging was so poorly conceived for anti theft. At some points when I discover the remains of stolen merchandise I wish everything came packaged in those intensely difficult to open blister packs. The hard plastic, the ragged edges of it ready to cut… Though if that happened I’m sure people would come into our stores packing scissors and box cutters. Just once, I’d love to see the DK book stolen and the figure left somewhere in a secluded corner of the children’s section.
