I got this metal charm making gizmo almost a decade ago at a thrift store -- it wasn't something professional, it was definitely made for children. It was really strange. You had little pieces of metal (or something) that you melted down in their magical machine, and then you tilted the heated metal-like stuff into a mold and then it cooled down and you had a little charm. I remember there was one mold that made "best friends" necklace charms, and one that made a dolphin, I think.

It's driving me crazy! I know it's a long shot, but does anyone remember what this thing was called, or have any idea what I'm talking about?

Thanks!

I know exactly what you're talking about - if we're thinking of the same toy.  My brother used to have one.  Neither of us have any idea what it was called though. 
Now that's really bugging me...

That's awesome! I want one of those. We had one that made Creepy Crawlies -- plastic, rubbery bugs.
