The first vending machine was invented in 251 BC, when the Greek mathematician Hero of Alexandria invented a mechanism for Egyptian temples that dispensed holy water after visitors dropped in a coin. In the 1880s, the first modern coin-operated systems were introduced to London and New York City, but it wasn’t until 1907 that the best vending machine of all came into existence -- the gumball machine!
Throughout the years, these machines have evolved into many shapes and sizes, but the most important characteristic hasn’t changed: they always dispense round, delicious, chewy gumballs! Welcome to the 21st century, where you can watch as your gumballs spiral down the exterior of this exciting, futuristic gumball bank! The machine lights up and emits zany sounds as the chewy treat rolls its way into your happily-awaiting palm. Standing 1.5-feet tall, this bank makes a nifty decoration in a playroom or game room. Now you can watch your entertainment and eat it, too!
Machine comes with 360 grams of 1/2-inch gumballs in assorted colors.
