Santa left this gumball bank under the tree for my 6 year old daughter who is crazy about gumballs and gumball machines and she was very happy to find it. When I first took it out of the box I surprised that it was smaller than I expected, but it's still big enough. I bought a 20 ounce container of sugarless gumballs and it filled the gumball bank about halfway up. I used a nickle to test the coin-turn knob mechanism and found that the gumballs jammed about 2 out of every 5 tries. The gumball machine can be adjusted to allow only one or several gumballs to drop at each turn and I adjusted it so that 2 would drop since these gumballs are pretty small. It seemed to work o.k. after that.

The only problem with it and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the knob is too hard for my daughter to turn all the way by herself. I have to turn it the rest of the way for her. The bank aspect is great, it holds a lot of coins, it's easy to get the money out once the gumballs are all gone, it's easy to re-fill with gumballs, and the directions say you can fill it up with other candies besides just gumballs though we haven't tried anything else. You can adjust this bank to give gumballs without having to insert a coin (any size coin seems to work fine) but we want her to save some money so she has to use a coin to get gumballs. The head is made out of what seems to be fairly durable glass (not plastic) and the base is all metal painted fire-truck red. I will probably add a drop or two of oil to the knob mechanism since it seems to grind a bit when being turned. It's not what a millionaire would buy for their kid, but it's cute and colorful, and it works alright - just hard for a kid to turn the knob.

First thing I noticed obviously, was the shipping. That had to have been the quickest shipment I have ever received from Amazon. I ordered the gumball machine on Wednesday, it was marked as shipped on Thursday here by Friday when the estimated date was the 4th. I opened the package and was extremely pleasantly surprised by the quality of this machine! It is a sturdy piece of metal and true to size. My neighbor mistook it for an antique and offered to buy it from me. The price is amazing! I am big into arts and crafts so I spray painted mine gold with glitter and I am totally in love! Such a great buy, you won't be disappointed.

We got this for my sons 5th Birthday along with the 20 Oz carton of bubble gum. The machine is just like the description. FYI the 20 oz carton barely fills the machine up half way!

Not just for gumballs, but for candy, too. Makes a great gift and fits nicely on a desk. Perfect for graduation or new office!

It's a gumball machine. But it is sturdy metal and glass. The classic kind that will be around for years. Not cheapy plastic!! At this time, it will serve as a skittles machine or m&m machine...so the possibilities are actually endless. Our daughter knows she has to put money in it to actually make it work. She says she can't wait to make her siblings use their money in it to "buy" skittles :) Little entrepreneur :)

They have 3 different sizes of these so I bought one of each size for each of my kids. Obviously the older one get the larger size and my little one got the smaller bank.

My middle son has to eat only sugar free gum so I got him a package from these people and my other son and daughter split one of their tubs of the smaller sized gum.

Good people to deal with, talked to them on the phone and were very helpful. Yes -- I would recommend them.

This gumball machine worked great. the instructions were easy to understand and I was able to remove the pay feature. Its seems very durable; we use this at work and have refilled it without issue.

This gumball machine is excellently crafted. The fact that is takes any type of change makes it simple and, heck, it's a bank too! Your kids will transfer all the coins from one bank to this one. And it looks absolutely fab on the dining room table. Dessert is served.
