I think my kids have been through three gumball machines in the past three years. It seems like they keep earning or winning these cheap, plastic gumball machines from school or parties. They love them, but the gumballs get hard almost as soon as you start chewing them and the machines are really poorly made. But that’s not the case with Carousel Gumball Machines.
Gumball.com sent us a Junior Carousel Gumball Machine with gumball refills for us to try out. Carousel makes awesome red metal gumball machines with real glass globe tops…the kind that make you feel nostalgic. I love seeing it filled with gumballs and sitting on my counter.
The Junior size is perfect for most households…12” high and 6” wide. It holds up to two pounds of gumballs and will also dispense other small candies and nuts (up to 0.62” in diameter). You can set it to accept any coin or set it to “free spin” (doesn’t require a coin to use). You can also adjust the number of gumballs that are dispensed with each turn of the handle. Unfortunately, to adjust these settings, you have to disassemble your machine, so it’s not easy. But it is nice to have options.
The gumballs are also better-tasting than most and don’t get hard as quickly as the other refills we’ve purchased.
Gumball.com sells all kinds of gumball machines, other vending machines, machine parts, and gumball & candy refills. I love that you can buy gumballs based on color, flavor, & size, too. It makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. In addition to sales, Gumball.com also has helpful information on their site like videos on how to change the settings on your machine or how to replace the glass globe if yours accidentally gets broken.
