1.0 out of 5 stars
The most miserable, wretched experience of our lives., 1 Jan 2009

I could not feel more dismayed. My 5 year old Son wanted this toy above all others for Christmas. Imagine his joy as he ripped off the wrapping paper to discover he'd received the number one item on his Christmas wish list.
Now imagine my horror.
This flimsy, pointless, inadequate toy has almost reduced me to tears. Melting cheap chocolate buttons on a warmish bottle of water??? That's 20 minutes of my life I'll never get back! A tight arse pack of gold paper and an embosser that doesn't emboss??! The results were pathetic. Nasty cheap chocolate, melting as soon as you remove it from the freezer, gold paper barely holding the goo in place, half a pattern you couldn't possibly make out and intense disappointment all round.
My children barely had the attention span to hang around until the chocolate melted. That was probably for the best. It ended with me cursing John Adams with a string of highly creative expletives. Strange, I'd never even said the C word before this escapade.
Enjoy counting your real gold coins, John Adams, I don't know how you sleep at night.
