Ok, here's an example for the average three year old:

This is a chocolate orange in Dublin. You're in Manchester. I send you the orange.

The UK is in the EU: You get the whole orange.

After a no-deal Brexit: Customs open the orange and remove two segments. (8.3% to be exact)

That's the effect of WTO rules on importing chocolate. Other products are much harder hit.
