Handmade and a lot of fun to have. Fill it with someone’s favorite candies and it makes a thoughtful gift they’re bond to love. Can be used with most small candies and nuts. Even the peanut M&Ms work great in it. A great way to get just the right serving of peanuts or small candy. Just pull the lever and fill the bucket with treats. The bucket is removable and held in place by a magnet so it won’t slip away when dispensing candy or peanuts. Easily disassembles for thorough cleaning. Food...
My daughter was about nine years old when she wanted a gumball machine. I decided I could make one from wooden parts and an old pickle jar. At the time, there were some cheap gumball machines for children that dispensed a gumball when a large dowel was rotated. There was no coin-operated mechanism. My daughter wanted to be sure to charge her brother and her sister for all gumballs they consumed, so the coin-operated feature was a requirement.(The photo is from Bing Images.)
