Robot Lollipop Holder


What took so long?

From the website:

Do you often find yourself sucking on a lollipop, only to have to set it down to do other tasks?

This is surely the number one problem vexing the lollipop lover.

No longer will your sucker gather dirt, debris, and dog hair every time you need to set it down.

Especially perfect for young kids who love suckers!

This toy robot will hold your sucker for you, and preserve its integrity inside of its mouth until you're ready to continue eating it.

To use it, just insert your sucker into the robot's hands, then press the button on the back of the robot to have it take it out of its mouth and hold it out for you.


Once you release the button, it will automatically put it back in its mouth to keep it safe and clean until your next lick.

The robot lollipop holder-and-saver is great for kids aged 3 and up, is made from plastic, and comes in three different colors for you to choose from.

The robot sucker saver measures 7.3 inches long x 3.5 inches wide.
