Would putting a wireless mouse receiver inside a plastic dinosaur reduce its signal strength too much to still use it? Answered

I threaded a USB extension through a plastic Triceratops, I mean Baby Torosaurus, to make using a flash drive an adventure every time, and I'd like to add my bulky wireless mouse receiver as well.

So would adding this receiver
To this baby Torosaurus
reduce the signal by too much?
The plastic is about a quarter of an inch think.
And if you think it would, what would be some possible solutions?

Triceratops and Torosaurus are the same species, just different ages.
Plastics don't block radio much, try it and find out.

Nah, it probably won't have any effect at all. Heck, the receiver is already in a plastic case, isn't it? It should work fine.
