This machine resembles a real copy machine, but instead of making paper copies, it creates a real copy of whatever it is scanning. Like a real copy machine, it can become jammed from overuse, and can also run out of toner and no longer be able to grant wishes. The machine also a setting that can create a life sized version of the object, although this may also literally bring the object to life.
While Wanda was taking Cosmo to the doctor for his millennial check-up, Timmy needed a way to get wishes, so Wanda left him this copy machine so that he could copy a Flipsie doll from a toy catalog. However, that wasn't enough for Timmy, and he began to copy more and more stuff. When he switched the copier over to life sized mode and copied a Dark Laser toy, it came to life and used the copy machine to create a toy robot army. Without wishes, Timmy had to use the copier to create a spaceship that he could fight off Dark Laser in.
