Hi Tori, Here's how to remove the penny from the Squinkie machine. Find a small screwdriver and unscrew the four bolts. Carefully pull apart the bottom near the back where the dispenser slot is but not all the way. Pull apart just enough so the two green pieces that hold the penny separate enough for the penny to fall out. To get the penny there, you need to tilt the machine. Then snap it back together. You may have to push parts of the plastic into slots so that it fits neatly back together. Then put the four screws back in!
