I agree.
My niece got this for Christmas and stupid aunt here thought she would have a go.
Just got very frustrated at the fact it makes about 1 coin per day!
Rubbish, Rubbish, Rubbish!!!!

Just go to Thorntons and buy some choccy coins there!
much easier! :thumbsup:

It's not great, to be honest, but my wee boy enjoyed making coins at Christmas time with it. Yeah, it's not a volume coin-maker, as it takes about 30 minutes to make a batch of 4 coins and the quality ain't amazing if not done correctly.

But, come on - at this price, it's a couple of afternoons worth of entertainment for you and your kids. It's not that bad.

Agreed. My daughter would love this, but might get frustrated if it is too difficult. What sort fo results do 5 year old s get using this, or is it "daddy do it and kiddy lick the spoon"?

Bought one a while back for my daughter. Total waste of money. Load of rubbish.

On our one the pieces didn't fit together properly and pieces were missing. By the time we'd taken the coin out of the freezer and done the printing bit, the chocolate was melting and seeping out of the sides of the foil which didn't fit properly!
One very disappointed child! :x

Thanks for the feedback guys :)

My little girl wanted this for Christmas too, and I didnt get it, as I thought it would be worth the money. But for this price I have ordered her one.

Interesting thread.

My children received one of these the christmas before last and had great fun making chocolate coins. Seemed quite easy, and they were only 5 and 7 at the time. Haven't used it more than a couple of times since though, because they ate all the chocolate.

I agree, a total waste of money, used it once then binned it as it was so bad, got my daughter a winnie the pooh fondue set this year which was so much better and came with moulds to make winnie the pooh characters, easy to use and much more fun.

there's nothing to lick :w00t:

You heat some water up in a bottle, put some chocolate chips in a pallet thing and then wait for the chocolate to melt and then have to wait forever for them to cool.

Believe me, my little one was bored stiff with this.
Bake a cake instead. Much more fun.
This is a total waste of money. I really would not recommend it to anyone.

As for results - most of ours went in the bin as the temperature wasn't exact in the bottle and they didn't melt correctly.

I always wanted a Mr Frosty when I was little and never got one. My mother explained that the coin maker is the modern equivalent of Mr Frosty = ****!

I agree. good price but unfortunatly a RUBBISH toy .

My boy got one last year we tried it once. the chocolate is not propper chocolate (made with loadsa oil to make it have a low melting point.) so we even threw the bag of chocolate away because it tasted grosse and melted before you could it in ya gob!

It was offically the most dissapointing christmas pressy of 2007 for him.
