“ Brand: Bluw „
I came across this item in a card shop recently and momentarily thought about buying it, but it dawned on me very quickly that the price they were asking for it (£3.99 I think it was) was ridiculous considering what it actually was. One of these tins has later found its way into my family kitchen however, meaning that i can legitimately review it. Admittedly its quite a cool idea to have a swear box, and one that will appeal to easily offended family members who have to share their home with indivudlas who a predisposed to randomly spouting profanities, working as a little spare change box into which change can be insterted in the slot in the top, then spent on something nice when the tin becomes full (as a ......reward for all that swearing I suppose!).
There is tactile/auditory satisfaction to be had in dropping coins into the tin, but it really is a lot of money to ask for given that it is so cheaply made and that you can make one yourself in five minutes using an empty coffee tin/jar, a knife, some glue and a piece of paper. In many ways youd be better off making one, as this would have a personal touch to it and would have more weight to it than this flimsy, lightweight thing. The product is just a cheap plastic cylinder with a hole cut in the top and wrapped in a piece of black glossy paper with SWEAR TIN written on it alongside a couple of speech-bubbles reading "$&*$&£!!" and the like.
I suppose it could make for an amusing and thoughtful present for a particularly sweary relative that is both useful and likely to raise a smile, but genearlly speaking its far too epensive and not worth picking up unless you can find one in a pound shop. Or, alternatively, if you really must have this item, you could make one, have a good, full day of non-stop swearing, then use the accumulated pennies to buy this manufactured swear-tin instead. Just an idea......
Swear that you never swear again, if you do so then pay for it. Enjoy the swear tin which will remind you to watch what you say!
