I purchased three of these, one for my grand nephews, one for my grand daughter and one for me! Two were given on Christmas Day. One was a huge success, toy of the day and my grand nephews love it. The one I gave my granddaughter was faulty burt I was able to give her the one I'd kept for myself. I returned the faulty item, post free, to IWOOT and although I had purchased it monyhs before, in anticipation of Christmas, they promptly replaced it for me. So we are all three satisfied and having fun with our candy grabbers! Excellent toy, impeccable service.
Fun for the Family
I bought this candy grabber as a last minute gift for my 27 year old boyfriend. On Christmas day, all other presents were left aside as his entire family (including his father and his 2 year old niece) tried their hand at this toy. We used gummy sweets which ended up being very challenging to grab, Skittles or jelly beans would be a lot easier. Great unique gift that is perfect for anyone who is young at heart. The fairground music does become slightly irritating after a while though!
Bought as a present. Was almost perfect, would have been nice to be able to use real money, sort of piggy bank. Crane is a little flimsy and would recommend a very thin layer of sweets to enable it to work really well. Loved the flashing lights and the music timer countdown was a nice touch. Bought for a 55 year old girl who was delighted.
Trying to grab things with the crane is amazingly addictive and fun. It reminded us of the inevitable visits to amusement arcades during trips to the seaside and created endless amusement when it was opened on Christmas day. Cries of anguish every time the 'prize' slipped out of the 'grabber' and whoops of delight when it was eventually deposited down the collection chute. Just like the arcade version. Should I admit that we are all adults. Not a kid in sight. This Candy Grabber can give you a second childhood!
Amazing little gadget
This Candy Grabber is awesome! I always struggled to win at the fair but this machine has made me so happy. The music is fantastic, it's cheesy (just the way I like it) and sets the tone for a good workout. I love this amazing and fun gadget. It's adorable, has funky music and is filled with sweets. It's a must have treat!
After reading reviews praising the Candy Grabber as a great gift that would provide excellent party entertainment, I got this for my 14 year old cousin. He was excited even before he'd switched it on. It was a huge success! I'd been a bit worried as it seemed a bit difficult to get anything properly grabbed and out of the machine but played with it almost all day until it was nearly empty and had to be refilled. The music on the Candy Grabber is a bit noisy, especially if you put it on a wooden table. Everyone from the youngest girl aged 6 to my brother in his early 20s thought it was amazing, and I received a lot of compliments with everyone wanting to know where I got it. After about 8 hours of constant play, the Candy Grabber sadly stopped working but I must say, they really used it a lot and it was never left alone for more than a minute. My engineer dad fixed it with a bit of industrial lubricant and it kept running the rest of the night. Absolutely fantastic present but try not to overuse it too much or it will stop running so smoothly.
Candy Grabbing Fun
This Candy Grabber was purchased as a birthday present for a child of a family friend. Worked exactly as described, easy to setup, and they were playing for sweets in no time! It's still just as hard as the grabbers you see in the arcades (but slightly less rigged!) and soon everyone was up for having a go at the challenge.
We bought it as a fun thing and everyone that tried it loved it. Nice looking and easy to use. The reason it didn't get five stars is that sometimes it gets stuck when the chain gets caught in the grabber, and the music is a bit loud. It helps if you put some fabric under it. But all together a great product for all ages.
This candy grabber is a must for any kid, just wear earplugs or muffle the speaker as it drives you insane after a while! It's a decent size and is very satisfying to play with. I would suggest buying very small light sweets as it can't cope with much else. I'm supposed to be giving it to my neice for Xmas but I've nearly worn out the batteries already! Well, I had to make sure it worked!
Recently, I was introduced to this fab candy grabber, that could amuse anyone that has a sweet tooth for candy or chocolate. It is so tempting to retry and possibly the good type of addiction!!!! I was up a loooooong time trying to grab my favourite chocolate but was i hopeless! But this is good 4 practising as when I went to the arcade I won a whole load of SMALL teddys lol. They were only small but it was fun. I recommend this brilliant product to anyone even adults!!!
Bought for a friend, who reports the entire family are hooked on it and the dog goes nuts at the jingly noise. The only way it could be improved is by making a dog-friendly one which dispenses scooby snacks so it can really drive the dog crazy while everyone else watches and laughs.
Enternaing & fun purchase
When I opened the Candygrabber I was mildly surprised . It was larger than I had envisaged. On trying it out I had to smile at the somewhat cheesy fairground music that played while I endeavoured to retreive the chocolates I had put in. That first trial cost me the equivalent of £1:20p in tokens for my own sweets. Great fun.
This you just HAVE to have.
Drive them all potty with this small version of the fairground grabber. which only ever grabbed your pennies. This goes MUCH further than that. Pop in one of the coins, and off you go. By about the fourth try, two things will have happened. You won't have won any sweeties, and the little woman will be chasing you round with a large , sharp knife. It's the music which emanates from it at every go. It WILL drive everyone barmy, except the players of course. Move it into the shed and enjoy a wonderful christmas . Highly recommended.
Fun for all
Bought this for a present for one of those people who have everything - tried it out and the rest of the family want one too! so yes this purchase it going to its rightful home but in its place there has been another one ordered and will be in its rightful place in front of the Christmas tree - would recommend this product for everyone in the family.
A friend and I bought this for our flatmate's birthday. She absolutely loved and it has taken up permenant residence here, so we can all play with it. The music is really good, the coins make it more realistic and you get just as frustrated as if you were at the fair! Well worth a buy.
Fun Fun Fun!
A great gift! I got this for my boyfriends 24th birthday as he loves going on the big machines in arcades and trying to win me cuddly toys- so I thought he needed some practice! This went down well with all our friends too and at his Birthday house party it was the main attraction and was used all night. The music gets a little tedious but it's so much fun that who cares? Definitely worth the money, so cheap for what it is! Also thinking about getting my brother one for Christmas, as it's a fun random gift!
Incredible fun - invite your friends
Awesome fun, after spending just enough time to be better than the competetion, I invited some friends to have a real match. Needless to say I was the ultimate grabber champion. I had to order 3 more machines for my friends, they want to beat me the next time they visit me. Best spent pounds on a gadget
