I was very worried about getting this after reading the reviews, but it was a toy that my little boy wanted really badly, so got it anyway.
I have to say I am glad I did.
I would higly recommend that you give up on the warm water melting method though (I think this must be what made everyone else give up completely) used it to melt 2 coins and it took about 10-15 mins then it wasn't warm enough to melt anymore. JUST MELT THE CHOCOLATE IN THE MICROWAVE!! Once metled they only take a few mins to harden in the freezer. Whilst they are in the freezer get your foil cut and then the coins are very easily covered in foil and I think the impressions with the stamper are pretty good too. I think the people who say they aren't must have left the coins in the freezer too long!!
My son is only 4 and a half and very active and he didn't lose intertest at all, in fact he was so proud of himself he didn't want to stop until there was no chocolate left!
But I should point out that I also bought the little extra box which contains 4 more moulds (plus other bits), so we were able to make 8 coins at a time! Which took about half an hour in total. Also I can't comment on the chocolate provided as I didn't have the original (out of date box, so reduced!) but I used chocolate buttons which worked great.
Yes there are 34 steps, but they are very broken down could be explained in about 10 steps!
Overall I would highly recommend as a great rainy day activity!

There are a lot of negative reviews for this product. But at the same time, it is a device that captures the imagination of children. Think back to when you were 4 or 5, imagine a machine that made real CHOCOLATE COINS!!

And there is the dilemma. The expectation is set so high that the machine is bound to fail unless it is any more complex than drop in chocolate chunks and pull a lever to expel perfect chocolate coins.

Well it isn't that simple. My 3 year old saw this on tv and in shops and wanted it badly. We tried to make him forget but 6 months later he still wanted one. That is a powerful want and not one to dismiss in one so young so Santa dropped one off on his rounds at Christmas.

The first time I used it I sympathised with the negative reviewers. Lots of steps, lots of complexity, 4 coins at a time with refrigeration in between. The possibility that the final process would fail and make a gooey mess rather than a chocolate coin.

4 months later and after a half dozen goes it is still a favourite toy and I have some top tips for use.

1. Read the instructions well before first usage. This is a toy you do WITH your child not left alone.
2. Don't microwave the chocolate - it spoils the fun. Buy some real chocolate buttons and fill the melting pot with hot water. The buttons melt in about 2 or 3 minutes.
3. While the chocolate melts get the moulds ready for the coins.
4. Accept that there is a break while the coins set in the fridge. Don't rush it, let the kids scrape the chocolate off the melting pot and go do something else for an hour. Really let the chocolate go hard in the mould.

Mmmm.... 36 steps including waiting for warm water to melt the chocolate plus 15-20 minutes in the fridge to cool. So far I haven't managed to get a decent embossing result either, and I'm actually rather capable so heaven help those who aren't. And when you've finished you can "bag `em" can you? Righty ho, but you'll be a long time filling a bag when you have to repeat every stage, including waiting for melting and cooling, two coins at a time. Doesn't sound like the great idea you thought this "machine" would be, does it? My recommendation is that you buy your children some nice superior, ready made chocolate coins from the shops and invest in a gift that is actually worthwhile. Oh, and you will be making your coins from silver kitchen foil sooner than you think, since the gold stuff supplied is only good for a handful. But it really saved my day to learn I could send off for more. I write facetiously because the marketing description for this "toy" seems to glibly gloss over its labour-intensive fiddliness and I feel people should be warned.

I gave this 5 stars for educational value, on the basis that it teaches children a valuable lesson about advertising, and not expecting things to be what they are described as. I also gave it 5 stars for durability, since I doubt we'll ever use it again so it will still be pristine in 10 years time.

This was the crappest of crap things ever. It takes over a year to make 2 coins (well that's what it felt like) and they are horrible, greasy, cheap-tasting chocolate. The kids lost interest and wandered off eventually, leaving me to sweat and swear over the wretched coins which, no matter how long you leave them in the freezer, melt all over you the INSTANT you take them out.

Do not buy this product unless you don't like your children much.

Once we realised how to get the temparature right for melting the chocolate, my daughter age 5 could produce quite a production line with little intervention from an adult. Her coins look and taste very good and she seems very happy with the whole kit. I agree that the manufacturers are a bit stingy with the gold foil, we will run out before we get to the end of the chocolate chips they supply.
