    Hi, I am in the UK and we cannot get the tubes that people use to hold the pressed penny money are the actual pressed pennies. If anyone has any spare, would you be so kind as to pass them on to me, I would be happy to pay the postage on them

    Bumping up to make sure people see this. I just got rid of a whole bunch of the M&M containers that people use. Hope someone can help!

    Are you talking about the M&M containers or the Mentos Containers?

    MM hold the pennies before being pressed
    Mentos hold the pressed pennies

    My sister lives in the UK and I see her next month, if you can specify what you need, and don't mind waiting for a month, I can get a couple for you.

    :goodvibes: PLEASE :goodvibes:

    I'm also in the UK, so if anyone has any spare I would love to be able to give all the children who are going with us on our next visit the M&M boxes, think I can the the Mentos ones over here.

    Can anyone do the covers to go on them, I've had a look but can't seem to find anyone who does them.

    As you can see I have plenty of time before I go, but starting early!!!

    Many thanks for anyone who can help me :flower3:

    Where do you get mentos containers? I have been looking but cant find any. I am in Virginia if that matters. Anyone have a pic of them that I can pass along to my mom and sisters so they can help look for them as well?

    TIA

    Walmart sells them up by the registers, and CVS does also.
