What Age Range Is This Toy For?
This product is recommended for kids who are aged 6 years and up. Reviews of this product states that even older kids love to play with this delicious product. This means, the candy pen is a toy that your child can use for years. The usage of the chocolate pen is limited only by the imagination of your child.
Just as an FYI, Amazon states that this toy is for kids age 6 months to 8 years old. This information is incorrect. Candy Craft, the maker of the Chocolate Pen, says that this product is for children six years and older.
Why People Like This Toy
As I read through the reviews of people who own the Candy Craft Chocolate Pen, I noticed that the majority of parents have spoken about how almost no mess is made by the product, even though it contains confectioner's chocolate. Since the melted confectioner's chocolate never touches the pen, it can be easily cleaned.
The chocolate stays inside tubes, which means that partially used tubes can be stored until the next time the pen is used. Many people praised the pen, saying it was easy and fun to work with. An overwhelming number of reviewers said that the chocolates made with the candy pen are really tasty and look great.
Pros And Cons

- The texture of the candy is smooth, and the chocolate melts easily once taken out of the refrigerator. This allows the kids to draw and create their own art forms with ease.
- This toy offers a perfect way to satisfy your child's imagination and appetite.
- You can decorate cupcakes and cookies with chocolate decorations that harden in minutes.
- Some users said that the chocolate hardens before they could decorate anything, but it is possible that they didn't let the chocolate fully melt before using it. The chocolate needs to be very soft, like butter at room temperature, before use.
- Some parents say that the product is difficult to assemble.
- 2 AA batteries, needed to run the pen, are not included.
