What the momma thinks….

No matter if it is the Fish Shake or Stuffetc if they have a candy machine, my kids are there begging for quarters to buy a tasty treat at the checkout stand. So this brilliant idea popped into my head on day when I was shopping for Christmas gifts online, why not get a gumball machine for at home? Of course I did not need one of the heavy-duty candy vending machine; just something that offered the same classic look and quality made. I found everything I needed in one trip to Gumballs.com.

The King Carousel Gumball Machine with Stand was like a dream come true. The box arrived and out came the main candy machine, a two-part stand pole, circle base and four legs. This was by far the easiest thing I have put together this holiday season! A few screws and turns later and I was ready to pour in the gumball refill box.

Note that the carousel gumballs are .62 inches, smaller than your typically industrial gumball machine offerings. To me these are plus feature since my children are younger and those large gumballs make a mess since they cannot close their mouths when chewing them. These are ideal size for my children. They also have the same delicious taste and that crack when you first bit into them. Yum!

Back to the King Carousel Gumball Machine with Stand – The stand is a cast metal, so very classy looking and tough enough to withstand my rough housing home. The globe however is glass (beware of breaking). This really adds to the vintage gumball machine look that I love so dearly. This unit has made its home in our walk in area as a conversation piece and will remain there. It offers an amazing look and gives that rustic feel that I enjoy about country homes.

Does the machine work as well as it looks? – Yes! Yes, it does. Pop in a coin: quarters, dimes, nickels and/or pennies, turn and out comes a gumball, sometimes two. You can even select the amount given upon use by changing the settings on the base (follow instructions provided in box). The dial is easy to use; even my toddler can make the turn. We have used this around 30 times so far and each use was a complete success.

Now did you notice that I mentioned something really cool there? The King Carousel Gumball Machine accepts four different types of coins. Now don’t let me kids in on that secret as I keep ours quarter only to limit their intake. I actually use this as a reward system. If they have all smiley faces at the end of the day, they earn a quarter. If they go above and beyond (cleaning without being asked, doing something nice for someone, etc), they get a quarter. There are lots of ways for them to earn a quarter and they love the gumball reward. Thanks Gumballs.com!
