WHAT IS IT?
This is a box for storing your pills and tablets in if you have to take them regular.
WHY DO I USE IT?
I take 3 daily tablets and I do not get mixed up about when I have got to take them. Me and my ladies all said we would buy each other a very small gift last Christmas as like a secret santa only with us knowing who had bought us the gift and this is what I received from my favourite lady who is very old and takes alot of tablets to stay healthy.
This is made to look like a bar of chocolate and each piece of chocolate opens up and that is where your tablets are stored. It is very dark brown and I think it does not look like chocolate very much and I think it is quite ugly.
WHAT I THINK
I think it is strange that this pill holder has only 5 compartments because any of the others I have used or seen have got 7 so that it holds one full week of medication. The spaces inside the pieces of chocolate are quite big and my small tablets are hard to take out because they get stuck in the corners when they are inside. I think if you bought this for someone who did not have very good use of their hands this would be frustrating because you have to tip up the holder for the tablets to fall into your hand sometimes if your fingers can not pull them out.
The top of each piece of chocolate pulls up and clips down so that it does not open if you have got it in your bag. The hinges are plastic and one has broken on my pill holder so I cannot use that compartment because the lid does not close when the hinge has gone, I think this holder is very cheap in feeling and that is a pity and I would never tell the lady who gave it to me what I think of it and she thinks I like it very much because I use it always when I know I am going to see her.
On Amazon UK this pill holder costs only £2 but I would not buy it for anyone because I do not think it looks very much like chocolate and that is the only thing that would make this different from another pill holder that is better in quality.
2 Dooyoo Stars.
Plastic bar of chocolate made to look like 5 individual chunks.
Comes in clear cellophane bag and with cardboard backing - called 'Chocolate Store Box'.
Made in China and not for under 3 year olds.
4.5 inches long, 1 inch high and 1.5 inches deep.
Comes in milk or dark chocolate colours - sent randomly.
£1.41 with free postage from Hong Kong via ebay.
I found this item on ebay while browsing for various chocolate novelties. Being priced at just £1.41 and with free postage I was not expecting much but thought it was worth ordering as a little novelty for either myself or as a gift for my nieces.
As it was coming from Hong Kong I had to wait a week or two but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised.
It is made from good solid plastic and looks quite realistic. Also the lids are very good and each 'chunk' of chocolate has its own independent lid which has a sort of integral plastic hinge. The lids are really well fitting and close with a nice reassuring 'click'.
The insides of the boxes are nice and shiny whilst the outsides are more a matt finish. They look like five chunks of chocolate joined together.
Each separate box can hold different things. They are meant to hold pills but can actually hold whatever you want. If given to children they could use it for their little treasures or ladies could use it for earrings for which it would be ideal. It also looks quite cute to just have on display. It would make a reasonably good pill box but might be a bit bulky in your bag.
This comes in either the Milk or Dark chocolate colours but they are sent out randomly. I got the dark chocolate which looks quite realistic.
This would make a cute and cheap extra gift for children or a fun one for adults. Being so cheap I was surprised how nice it was and I will be getting a few more for next Christmas as little gifts.
