My daughter has always been very fascinated with vending machines and that includes gumball machines. I remember when she was a little girl, she would ask coins from us just so she could use it in the gumball machines. Sometimes, it was not the content at all because she did not even eat the candies. She just loves the way these gumball works when you put a coin in and twist the knob to get your treats.
It was such a pleasant surprise when my auntie gave my daughter her very own medium-sized gumball machine. It was so nice of my aunt to present her with that and to think, I must have told her about it 2 years ago and when we came to visit in the US, she had it kept for that long for my daughter. It was so sweet of her. My daughter just adores the gumball machine.
Well, this gumball machine dispenses not just gumballs but also jelly beans, peanuts, those candy coated chocolates and more. As a matter of fact, we put the M & M peanuts in the gumball machine since we cannot find smaller sized gumballs to put. Not in Dubai!
The design is the classic and ubiquitious red gumball machine with heavy-duty cast metal and glass globe. It is portion controlled so you don't spill your treats. It is safe for children above 3 years old and the paint used is non-toxic. The gumball machine we have is 9" tall and is already assembled.
Now, my daughter is so happy to have her gumball machine cum coin bank as well. Although it works with or without putting coins (works with ALL coins by the way!), she insists that we put a coin so she can save as well. Clever! Business woman in the making I say.
