Straight from the 1960s, this battery operated wonder is a delight for all. Just place a coin in the slot and a great THING happens. The box trembles and a hand reaches out and grabs the coin!
This toy just plain sucks. It literally stopped working the first day we had it, without any sort of abuse or mishaps. the hand would get stuck in the "up" position and not pull the coin down. every time. it jammed, jammed and jammed again and again. We tried replacing the batteries, no luck. It cost $10, it should be $1. It's so poorly made, that it would not even be useful as a seasonal toy. If you put it away until halloween, and left it entirely alone until the actual day of halloween, it would be broken before you wrap up your halloween stuff, guaranteed. It doesn't matter how gentle you are with it. It doesn't matter how often it's played with. It's worthless. If you spend more than a dollar on this thing, you've been ripped off.
