Others operate by loading the jelly beans in and then pushing down on the "Pet" ... at which point the jellybeans successfully exit! This Santa requires you to move his HAND which is supposed to open a door at the back to let the jellybeans out. ... The hand fell off immediately upon first use attempt!! In testing further, other than opening the little door at the back MANUALLY, the door would not open all the way, which meant that the jellybeans could not exit!! Bad construction, bad premise and bad purchase ... hope this saves others from making the same mistake!!
I was hoping that this would replace a Poopin Snowman I had for years. My grandchildren really loved it. This is NOT a comparable product at all. I waited for my grandson's to come to open the package up. Well, we sure were disappointed, it didn't work at all! They ate the ten jelly beans that were included. Don't buy this product if you want happy children!
Purchased this as a gag gift this Christmas. It's exactly as pictured and does come complete with some jelly beans. I purchased the reindeer one several years ago for the same person and got this one to go with it.
It brought plenty of smiles and laughter to our holiday.
Don't waste your money. We got this one AND the reindeer one to put in the boys' stockings. The kids thought it was hilarious…until they tried to actually use it. The lever used to open the slot for the candy to come out never worked properly from the get-go. It seemed to stick when trying to open it, and then it wouldn't close. So every piece of candy would come flying out all over the floor before they could react quickly enough to stop it. Very disappointing.
