There's something about a gumball machine that grabs the attention of children, and if you're like me...even adults! When we're out and about, my kids always ask for a quarter when they see a gumball machine. They get especially excited when visiting their cousins who have a gum ball machine of their very own! That's why I knew they'd be excited to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review the Junior Carousel Gumball Machine from!

Founded in 1993, is the #1 ranked bulk vending depot. They are the original online distributer of all things related to vending machines, including gum balls! Visiting their site for the first time, I was amazed with their large selection of vending machine products including not just gumball machines, but also snack machines, bill changers, etc. They have something for everyone!

We were sent the Junior Carousel Gumball Machine with Gumball Refill Box to review.
When the gumball machine arrived, the kids were instantly drawn to the colorful box and wanted to check it out. I couldn't blame did I!
As I pulled the machine out of the box, I was happy to see that it comes completely assembled. It was also evident that it is fantastic quality. It's made with an all metal base, lid and coin mechanism and comes with a glass globe. It's nice to know that this is made well and is something that will last!
It holds small gum balls, candy or nuts only (gum balls must be smaller than .62 inches in diameter). We put in the gumballs which couldn't have been easier. By simply loosening the top we were able to open it, put them in and then gently tighten it again. I love the look of it with all of the colorful gumballs in's what captures the kids attention every time they see it!
It is such a cute machine. I was happy to see that it wasn't too large. At 12 inches tall, it's really the perfect size for a home. We set it right on our kitchen counter and it has worked out very well. It looks really neat sitting there as well and is always a conversation piece for anyone who is visiting.

Of course, the kids absolutely love it...especially the fact that it takes real money! They each have their piggy banks and at least once a day, they ask me if they can take a coin out and put it in the gumball machine. I like that it accepts all types of coins so they can use any of them that they want. For those who prefer not to use coins, it can also be set to "free spin" as well. We use it as a fun reward after the kids pick up their playroom, eat all of their dinner, etc. What's fun is that they can easily use it themselves. I love that there's a carousel door with an easy helps to keep gumballs off the floor!
It's really been a lot of fun for the whole family, not to mention that the gumballs are really yummy! We've been very happy with the quality and fun's the perfect size for home use. I'd definitely recommend this to other families with's been a hit in our household for sure!
