"I purchased these pirate gum ball machines for my child's recent 4th birthday party as "party favors" for children attendees. The kids loved them so that's a plus!
The downfall I found is... When I went to buy gumballs for the machine, I was disappointed to find almost the exact same gumball machine that INCLUDED gumballs for a cheaper price. The machines of the same size were $3.00 each and INCLUDED the gumballs which cost me an additional $12.00 to fill 16 pirate gumball machines only 3/4th of the way full. Overall-good gift-just a little spendy for 16 party attenders."
