This review is from: Casdon 519 Toy Pick & Mix Sweet Shop (Toy)
I find it quite humbling that this Christmas the two run-away most popular toys at my house were this sweet shop and a Penguin Pile Up Game rather than the games consoles and expensive Disney tie-ins which are relentlessly advertised on TV.

To start with the sweet shop needs to be constructed, this takes less than a minute and the side and scales just press on, they can then be removed eaily for storage if required. The set comes with some lollipops and a bag of sweets, enough to fill the 2 plastic jars and the trays. It also comes with plastic coins and some paper money. My kids love roleplaying, be it schools, shops, or princesses (bizarrely my 3 year old boy looks great in the dress my daughters put him in) and this shop has given literally hours of entertainment over the last couple of days. To add to the experience I also purchased sweetie bags and some stainless steel tongs for picking up the sweets and dropping them into the bags - these extras cost little over £3 and help turn this from a great toy into an awesome one!

In a nutshell: The success of a toy has the be measured in play value - and this has not disappointed. Cynics may think that kids would just scoff the sweets, but once the novelty of the sweets wears off they realise that the sweets are an important resource in order for this to work and they manage to keep enough in circulation! Obviously the sweets are easily replaced, I've got a tub of Jelly Babies on stand by.
