Open It Review and Giveaway



With Christmas only 4 days away, we are gearing up for lots of gift giving and receiving and it’s absolutely the best time of the year because you get to spend lots of time with family members that you wouldn’t otherwise get to see but with the fun also comes the extreme chaos of opening those hard to open plastic packages that toys and other gifts come in as well as opening up new DVD’s and CD’s you may find in your stocking and of course the tedious task of putting batteries in all the toys that need batteries and for all those tasks mentioned above you need at least 3 tools right? Well I recently discovered the tool to end all of the chaos and need for multiple tools on Christmas morning, the Open It!!!

About Open It:

Open It!, our highly acclaimed opener that lets you cut through today’s difficult packaging safely and easily. Another one of those ideas that’s so brilliantly simple, you have to wonder why some giant company didn’t come up with it first. Maybe they simply forgot to ask busy working moms.

Open it! Easily opens clamshells, toy packaging, boxes, CD’s, DVD’s battery compartments and more!

Our Thoughts:

We were sent an Open It! to review and I have to admit that I was very excited to see it show up at my door!!! And since I’m a blogger I do get several packages in the mail where I need to either use scissors, a knife or a box cutter to get to the product to review so I knew that the Open It would defiantly see lots of use and get tested pretty well and I wasn’t at all wrong! I happened to need to use our Open It the same day that it arrived on a monster truck toy that “Bug” had picked up at Wal-Mart and we have went through the whole processes of trying to open these packages before and he would get a little agitated because it took me so long to get the package opened but with our Open It I had the dragon out of the package in no time and I can’t even begin to tell you how much easier getting the package opened with the Open It vs. our traditional knife or scissors!

Now, the Open It does a lot more than just open toy packages! This products is awesome it takes away the need for all the other tools I usually keep in my kitchen drawer since it is a 5 in one and we have used all 5 features on the Open It and I have absolutely no complaints and I now not only keep one in my kitchen for everyday use I make sure to keep one my car just in case and let me just say that since keeping one in my car it’s defiantly saved some tantrums from having to wait until we get home to open toys and such, which as been very convent, especially when mommy gets a new CD and needs it opened asap LOL!!!

My husband has really enjoyed having the Open It around as well since he loves to cook with beer the bottle opener on the Open It has really came in handy for him, just as much as the screwdriver that comes in the Open It that he uses to keep the batteries changed in “Bug’s” toys since everyone of them seems to have to have batteries!

Bottom Line:

We love our Open It! It has came in so handy over the past few weeks we have had it and I am totally recommending that everyone have at least two of these, one for the house and one for your car they really do open everything and really has taken the stress out of opening even the smallest packages like our new toothbrushes!!!!

Right now when you head over to the Open It! Facebook page and click on their Holiday tab you will get the opportunity to open one of the days on the Advent Calendar to see what gift you will get today!!!

Buy It:
