My grandparents have a room full of shelves holding their nutcracker collection. I remember visiting when I was little and gazing up at rows and rows of shiny, lacquered nutcrackers painted to look like golfers and the Statue of Liberty and wanting, very badly, to play with all of them. Alas, I was forbidden since the collection was and is extremely delicate. Even then, it didnâ€™t make sense to me how fragile those nutcrackers were. I much prefer this hard hitting nutcracker from UK site Mocha. The Heavy Metal Nutcracker uses the force of gravity and a sleek, modern design to free those delicious walnuts from their tough shells. — Katie D.
