Gumball Machine Review & Giveaway

I don’t know who was more excited about reviewing the Junior Carousel Gumball Machine, my wife or my kids? You see, Sandy is always been known to have a gallon zipper bag full of Mike & Ikes, Runts, Skittles, Sprees, and so forth… you get the idea. The mix is never the same. When the bag of “trail mix” as she calls it…gets low, she just keeps adding more to it….all kinds of varieties. Basically, I guess you could say she has a little bit of a sweet tooth LOL.

The great thing about this gumball machine is not only will it dispense gumballs, but it also dispenses small candies like the ones mentioned above. It’s a win, win for my household. Sandy and the kids get their candy and I don’t go broke buying all that candy. The candy is replaced by the money collected in the machine (yes, yes I am a little cheap LOL….even though I prefer to think of it as frugal)

I really love the quality of this machine. The globe is glass and the base, lid, and coin mechanism are all made of metal. The Jr. Carousel Gumball Machine accepts quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies. Just don’t tell my kids it takes pennies…..I may have fudged that a little LOL. Can’t refill the machine with 100 pennies after all :)

You can check out all the Gumball Machines they have to offer on their site too..! Tons of choices.
