Metal Molder Die-Cast Factory
This 'toy' (ages 8+, so I guess I qualify) is a AC powered unit that melts metal pellets and when melted, you tip the tilting plate and it pours the molten metal into the mould.

The moulds are actually made of a very soft vinyl or latex material and talcum powder acts as the release agent. The moulds are two sided so you can make complex shapes.

In addition the melting unit, it comes with four moulds (robot, baseball glove, boxing gloves and skull), ten viles of metal pellets (which I assume is just solder), talcum powder and applicator brush, sanding board and a key ring.

Its made by Toymax
