I just wish I'd understood the WEEE's impact in Nov

In November I ordered a small battery-operated train, one I couldn't find in Ireland, as a Christmas present. I have no evidence that this is the case, but I strongly suspect that An Post intercepted my non-WEEE complying train shipped from Buckinghamshire in the UK that I had bought through eBay. The reason I suspect that this is the case is because I also ordered two small non-electrical toys from the same seller. Those arrived in a few days, but the train is still missing.

At the time I bought the items I didn't even consider the WEEE. Now, I've learned my lesson – when I want small electrical items, buy them whenever I'm outside the state.
