As this article from the Washington Post attests, many of us fear opening all the toys packed in clamshell packaging more than anything else Christmas morning. One solution: the OpenX.

Sure, it has an “as seen on TV” feel to it, but I’ll admit that I’ve ordered one. I’ve heard good things about them, and the design certainly makes sense to me. Do any of you already own one?
The one pictured comes from SmartHome for $5, and they’re available for the same price directly from the manufacturer. Pricing via Froogle runs about the same everywhere, except for the one jerk that wants you to pay $10 for it. Merry Christmas to you, too, scrooge.
