Product Description

The American Educational North Pole coal features three lumps of coal for practical and impractical applications such as drawing, stocking-stuffing, behavior-messaging, and vigorous attempts at diamond-making. They come housed in a festive 4 x 6 inch plastic baggie with zip-closure. Coal is used by large, bearded men in red suits, parents, loved ones, friends, neighbors, and officemates to convey special feelings. A lump of coal may be used to express displeasure, convey deeds that have not been well done, or to signify when a person could have been less naughty. Coal is used in a variety of home, office party, and entertainment industry applications. Suggested product applications include display in a holiday centerpiece to promote good behavior, and use with messaging such as “Sally did not walk the dog.”

Anthracite coal burns with little smoke or flame, producing a smoldering effect for the holiday mood. With an 86 to 98 percent fixed carbon content, anthracite coal is one of the strongest and shiniest coals. Anthracite coal is also known as blue coal, crow coal, Kilkenny coal, blind coal, and black diamond coal. Stewed and brewed with heat over time, anthracite coal has been physically altered, much like the facial expressions of those who receive it. Anthracite coal has a heating value of approximately 13,400 to 15,600 BTU per pound, enough to properly steam any giftee.

Warning: Use at your own risk. Distributor not responsible for intended or unintended consequences, including belief that gift-giver’s heart is two sizes too small. Product not sourced from the North Pole. Made in the USA.

As a loving uncle I always look for fun gifts for my precocious nephew. This looked like something fun with an educational spin on it so I ordered some. I had it delivered to my office and tore one package open with enthusiasm. I had it delivered to my office because I don't trust Larry, my neighborhood mail carrier. I swear he's been taking some of my Sheep Magazine issues, especially the annual shearing edition. He also makes comments about me still living at home in my 30s. Hey, Larry, it's not easy living with your parents as an adult... let's see you try it. So anyway, I can't actually attest to its freshness, as advertised, but I suppose it smells like what I imagine fresh coal should smell like. Is it really anthracite coal? Beats me, for all I know they could be slipping me some of that bituminous junk in a package and calling it whatever but I'm not going to make a mountain out of a COAL hill. I trust Amazon to not hoodwink me like that though. Ebay though? Never ever again. It'll be a COAL day in hell before I buy anything off Ebay. Now I thought this would be educational because it's from the American Educational Products company. This is the same fine company that gave the Digest-O-Rama®, which is in my opinion the best way to teach kids about farts and poop without all the silliness and giggling. I haven't yet caught on to what is so educational about this coal but it will come to me. I've had this coal in the pocket of my stretch waist cargo shorts for a few days and I'm experiencing some remarkable things. I suffer from Witzelsucht and it appears that my symptoms are improving. I highly recommend getting some if you also share this disorder. You can't have mine though, get your own. Don't worry though, I'm sure each package is practically a CARBON copy of the other.

This is a bag of coal that weighs less than one pound. One ton of coal costs $90.00 per short ton, or about $0.05 per pound. Accordingly this costs over 150 times the price of the coal located therein. So ask yourself, is $7.20 too much to pay for a Ziplock bag and a label?

This person is making some money! Some people got it and I suppose I don't and that's why I work at a coal mine. I work at a coal mine everyday and never given any thought of making money off this.

While this is a straight-forward product, it is a plastic bag of coal with a sticker on the outside after all, I guess I expected more. I was hoping to use this as a stocking-stuffer gag gift, as I expect most others will choose to do the same.

I was disappointed when it arrived and the "lumps" are quite a bit smaller than I had imagined. Perhaps my imagination got the best of me, and I have pictured three nice fistful sized pieces. Instead, there were three that were nail polish bottle sized.

Bought this for my little brother as a joke for christmas, but was slightly disappointed when it arrived. The bag is packed with coal, causing a very dirty, worn out looking bag. Does not have that "fun" look to it.

Santa needed some help, so this was a smart joke for a younger brother. I told him the gift is what you make of it, he laughed when he opened it and burned it in a useful way. Fun gift

I gave this to all the poorly behaved and lazy children in my family for Christmas. I am fairly certain (based on the amount of tears and tantrums by the little brats after they realized that Santa had indeed punked them) that a great life lesson was learned by the feckless little ankle biters. I will gladly purchase more of these next year!
