Candy grabber that failed to grab
Very disappointing - grabber is weak so despite our best efforts at trying a range of sweets (different weights & sizes) this priced a frustrating purchase. Decided not to give it to our 9 year old as a Xmas present as her frustration would probably ruin her Xmas!
So much fun!
Very pleased with this. Great price. The quality is good and love the look. I bought it for the kids in my family for Halloween. They nearly burst with excitement when they saw it! Luckily I had tested it out beforehand. At first I wasn't sure of the quality.. The music is way too loud, the claw is quite light and spins round, seemed a bit flimsy and I couldn't pick up anything! BUT actually the claw works just fine. It's good it spins a bit so it can get stuff from different angles. It would be too easy if it was heavy. TIPS: - Put a couple of tea towels underneath it and the music is much quieter. - Only put a few things in at a time, so the claw has space to get underneath and properly grab it then it works great! - You don't need to put the coins in, you can just 'trigger' it and pull the coin out again (saves having to turn it upside down to get the coins out). - Helps to unscrew the lid so you can get your hand in to move stuff around if needs be. - Can be a great 'reward' incentive. I soon got the hang of it and so did the kids (ages 5-8). When they got all the candy they went round the house finding anything small enough to put in it to win! One child with attention of a gnat spent 45 mins playing with it very happily! She asks to play it everyday. We will use this for Xmas and birthdays too. Great investment. Everyone who comes in has a go! Good fun for all :)
This is sure to make a great gift I hope bought a tub of sweets to fill it and battery's and looking forward to giving this
Beautiful Candy Grabber!
I ordered candy grabber as a new year gift for my friend. It is a super fun and cute product which can be really enjoyable for young adults and kids. Its music is a little disturbing but overall its worth having it. The only negative thing is that the product did not arrived at the expected date (December 26). I ordered the product in the beginning of December and it arrived January 5th. Therefore I had to give the gift later. Nonetheless I highly recommend this product. I am even considering to buy one more to myself.
Arrived on time, the most difficult part was getting the plastic off of the grabber. I agree with the other reviews about the music, does drive you mad after a while (shame there isn't an off switch). On a positive note, it's fun, every age group will want a go, & good value for money. Would recommend.
Excellent toy. Realistic. Pity there not volume button for music
Not a great grabber!
Yes, it is only meant to be a bit of fun but you can't even have that with this thing. Functionality is non existent and it's pretty poor quality. If I were you, I wouldn't bother and pick something else.
Amazing quality, quick delivery. Fab value for money. Recommend
Machine is great but the music is quite annoying after a while! Delivery was very quick.
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 this for my husband, it's great fun & very addictive, even our 2 yr old daughter loves playing it. Definitely recommend it.
My son loved this for his birthday! He had hours and hours of fun, he and his friends. This toy was BINGO!
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!
Bought as a gift for my two sons who love this machine.
great fun. just practising which sweets we can use was fun. need to keep the sweets small. Tried jelly trpy sweets and it would not pick them up. hilariour to get a sweets and then run out of time.
Bought this for my son for Christmas it looks brill like a proper carnival candy grabber I'm sure he's going to have lots of fun with it on Christmas Day. Thanks for the fast delivery IWOOT!
We haven't actually played with these yet as they are Christmas presents, however after shopping around for them, IWOOT offered the best price and fantastic delivery! Ordered on the Thursday and arrived on the Saturday - free delivery too! ! Excellent service !
Purchased as a Xmas gift for our son who loves grabbers in arcades, not tried this yet but hoping it fits the bill! Iwoot was best price and quick delivery.
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!
I think this is amazing because it is small, light and easy to carry and easy to play. It has a great quality and I would recommend buying this product if you cant resist a little treat!
Bought the Candy Grabber as a gift for my younger brother, the site was really easy to use and delivery was very fast overall. Very, very impressed with the service.
We bought a Candy Grabber a couple of years ago and our grandson loved it so much that we have bought another one for his birthday. It's really good fun, especially when all the family visit, and as it is not that hard to grab the sweets. It's also ideal for young children.
This Candy Grabber is amazing and one of the best things I have ever bought for my kids to play with! They love it, long after it was bought it's still getting filled and used.
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.
Relive your childhood!
My dad bought the Candy Grabber for my children who are 6 and 16 and they both enjoyed playing with it, which shows it has multiple appeal. It is of sturdy construction, and you can add in other small items instead of sweets to introduce some variety.
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.
Good with a crowd
My 12 year old got this Candy Grabber for her birthday and it was a big hit with the little cousins who all went crazy for it. However it only gets played when friends/family are around. It's not really a game for one.
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!
The Candy Grabber is a great gadget for the kids, I used it for a party recently and it was fantastic. Thanks again.
i bought for a kid's party and there was a huge queue, and no-one went near the sweets on the table!!
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!!!
I recently bought this for my children and they loved it! It's a brilliant gift for those who love sweets and of course the fun of the arcade grabber. I'd recommend it to anyone with children.
bought this for my daugher she loves it we get it out at every party famiy fun for everyone and great price to for years of fairground fun
Lots of Fun
I bought the candy grabber for a friends 30th birthday present, he was really pleased with it and loved the cheesy music.Excellant purchase.
What a great purchase this was iv'e never had so much fun, just fill it with sweets and away you go, it kept my grandchildren occupied for ages and I even had a go myself. best 20quid iv'e spent in ages and I.W.O.O.T delivery was up to usual standard, nice and quick. thanks guys.
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.
I bought this for a kids party. It was fantastic! It kept everyone entertained and busy for hours! The adults loved it too! I would definitely recommend it to anyone stuck for party ideas.I am now going to buy another for a friend's birthday present immediately.
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.
I have bought this item for my 2 children for christmas, on first impression, they look fab.
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
