My Review:

As a kid growing up my father as a hobby/quasi second income had vending machines in a few stores. I would always look at the machines and think about how cool would it be to have a machine of my own, one in which I could get candy or gum from and not have to part with a quarter!

It took several years but one of my childhood dreams has come to fruition.  Gumballs.com  has sent me a king carousel gumball machine with a stand and it is one of the coolest decorations I have in my house, it’s not only great looking but it also gives you a gumball and who doesn’t like chewing gum?



 The gumball machine is all metal; it has some weight to it and combined with the stand really looks good sitting in the corner of my kitchen. It has that old antique feel to it but with all modern parts that will work without breaking down due to age. And being an avid watcher of American Restorations I know getting an old gumball machine restored to new condition can cost as much as a house!

The neat thing other than it spits out gumballs is that the machine accepts all forms of change and getting the money out of the machine isn’t all that difficult. But one of the coolest features is the free spin mode which is what we have it set now but with all the gum my daughter is chewing I might just set it to take money. We’ll let the kid pay for our next vacation!

With the holidays right around the corner, a gumball machine is a great gift for the entire family. So make sure you check out gumballs.com to get something for that special someone/family on your holiday list this year.
