Playing with your “food” is fun. Yes I just called gumballs food. The Gumball Pinball Machine from Hammacher plays like a normal, albeit simple, pinball machine except instead of steel balls it uses up to three 1″ gumballs at a time. The baseball themed playing field has “win” and “lose” holes. Get it in the win hole, your gumball comes out the slot. Lose and it goes back into the hopper. The machine can hold up to 1700 gumballs in the back area, which would take my friend Tommy about 10 minutes to go through (the guy is a pinball wizard, his wrists are incredibly supple). $1000 for this durable powder coated steel machine. No coins or electricity required.
