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! These playful, bubble-shaped pastel gumball banks come in a pink, blue, and purple three-piece collection. Twist the knob and watch the gumballs tumble down through the clear base, right into your happily awaiting hand! And at 10 inches tall, these make a cute, colorful addition to any desk or playroom. Now you can watch your entertainment and eat it, too!
