Is the anticipation killing you? You buy a great gift for your kids. Now you just have to wait for them to open them on Christmas morning. But you know, sometimes you have to open them early, to "try them out", make sure they work.When I heard that Lego was releasing a limited edition Yellow Submarine, I knew I had to get if for my kids. We have been listening to the Beatles together since they were infants. But it's been sitting there in the closet. And it's been calling out to me - "Build me! Build me!"

Which of your kids' toys did you have to try out before Christmas this year?
