    OK, has anyone heard of a toy that is a box with a switch on the top, and when you flip the switch, a hand comes out and flips it back, and than the hand goes back into the box. I heard of it a few years ago and thought it was one of the coolest things I have ever heard of, but the guy never said where he saw it at. I have no idea where to search and I don't even know the name of the toy, so can any shed some light on this toy?

    I've seen it, it's cool, and I think it's called The Thing.

    The Thing is actually the one that has something to do with a coin. I believe the one that just has a hand that switches the toy off is called "Little Black Box" and both are novelty items, so you'd have good luck looking for it at say, Spencer Gifts.

    You can get one here:

    http://greatwindup.com/plastic/pb0112.htm

    Here's the description from the website:

    PB0112 Magic Bank! Straight from the 60's! Place a coin in the slot, and out of the trembling box, a hand will emerge to grab it. Battery Operated.

    Thanks for the info Shawn, I looked at a few players on the net and didn't find anything so my search was put on hold. Thanks a lot.
