This is a toy bought for my son at his request, I didn't think much of it at first just a plastic gumball machine like all the rest. But upon getting it home and rescuing it from its fortress / packaging I noticed it came with a lot of gumballs. I also found that it required no keys or special quirky gadgets to open it on either end, which is very important to short memoried and short tempered seven year old. You know how it goes lose a key and lose your mind all in a matter of a few seconds, but no worries like that here. I really like that it came with over fifteen and a half ounces of premium IMPERIAL gumballs, most of these toys come with just a handful of hard, low quality gumballs. As it turns out this is one of the few toys my son actually tries to take care of, it may be because he's like Dad and loves the idea of making money, and he indeed thinks he is going to be the next gumball king. Now on the downs side I only really have one complaint, I really don’t like the way the machine will function without a coin inside. It seems to me if you can get the gumball without a coin it sort of takes away the whole learning to save educational part of the toy. All in all I would recommend this toy to other parents and kids.
