Candy Grabber – sweetie machine makes it hard to pig out


This Candy Grabber thing could be just what I need to slow down my consumption of the luscious choc varieties. However I fear that based on my fairground experiences, the device will drop the confectionary within inches of the hole each time, thus guaranteeing that I kick seven bells out of the container and go back to storing consumables in the fridge. £19.99.


 Once you’ve popped one of the tokens in the slot, you have just one minute and fifteen seconds (but who’s counting) to manoeuvre your grabber into position using the three levers, grab your candy and release it down the shoot. Truly horrible and yet strangely nostalgic carnival music plays while you desperately try to grab stuff, and gets faster and faster as your time runs out. When you do succeed in liberating your sweets, a motion sensor triggers off some tacky but satisfying applause! In order to stop you cheating, the hole in the top through which you load your sweets is too small for sticky little fingers.
