1) It’s a disgusting tin of snail soup…
2) …but no, it’s a secret safe.
3) The perfect place to hide your treasures!
Every boy and girl has treasures they want to keep safe – pocket money, a stash of sweets, trading cards (their Nintendo DS games) but why hide them in a conventional treasure chest, when you can hide them in a ‘Snail soup decoy’ – the ultimate treasure box craft idea for security conscious children!
This sneaky device looks like a tin of yucky snail soup – but pull on the spoon handle and out comes a steel plated secret safe (yes, I know it’s only cardboard). Guaranteed to confuse burglars, it’s also perfect for keeping annoying younger brothers (and sisters) out of their older sibling’s valuables!
