Publisher Description:

Perfect for any budding engineer with a sweet tooth! Make your own gumball machine with a book of step-by-step instructions, adjustable ramps, custom snaps, and bumper guides. Then, keep the ball rolling with other gumball-related science experiments using simple machines. It's a ball of fun!

Category Description for Klutz Maker Labs:

While these maker kits will not teach you how to weld or use a CNC machine, you will make some cool stuff and learn about basic wiring, electronics, gravity feed systems, and pneumatic power. Once again Klutz comes through with fun kits that teach real world skills. Projects are exciting, instructions are large-format and clearly written, and almost everything you need is in the box. The Wired Remote Race Car kit helps us build a chipboard craft car that moves in four directions, teaching about wiring and switches. Circuit Games takes electronics a step farther; builders will use LEDs and buzzers to construct a quiz show board used to play 5 separate games. The Gumball Machine dispenses real gumballs (not included) down customizable ramps, bumpers and guides. The Air Blast Cannon is a portable, workable air-powered cannon that fires missiles at targets. Maybe after these you will be ready to tackle that CNC machine!

Fun but not worth more than $15
It was fun to put together with my child, but the turn knob to catch and release the gum balls doesn’t work well. We have to shake the machine every time to get a gum ball to fall into the pocket. Also, the chutes fall off or don’t line up without adjustments each time. I’d say not worth the money, maybe $15. Definitely a great idea, but not well engineered.
