English translation:button maker
Explanation:
This is rather a Swiss typo. And a "Denglizism".

Due to the context (childrens' parties) I am very convinced that we are talking about a "Buttonmaschine":

"Create a perfect button every time with our high-quality button machines. Choose from 11 different size button makers!

Browse our website to find out how easy it is to make a button.

A button maker is a great addition to any business or organization. Use the button maker for promotional events and fundraising. Special discounts are available for schools, clubs, and other non-profit organizations.

Are you looking for Badge-A-Minit Button Parts? We have parts that work in 2.25" and 3" button machines."
