14,450 Gumball Machine: No Coins Needed. Just Thousands of Dollars.

 |  |  |  |  |  |  August 17, 2011


Do you own an amusement park? Are you a gumball addict? Are you Richie Rich? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you simply must have this monstrous gumball machine. Just like it’s name says, it carries 14,450 gumballs and uses the “classic “Beaver” mechanism”, which apparently is the one that makes the click-clack sound when dispensing gumballs.

The 7-foot tall machine has an acrylic globe with a diameter of 42 ft. I think the globe itself could hold more than 14,450 pieces of gumball, because as it is there’s a spherical insert inside that pushes the contents to the wall to make them more visible and give the illusion that the container is packed.

The mechanism and the dispenser are 49″ from the base and as you can see is at just the right height to allow even kids to get a gumball or two (thousand) without assistance. You don’t need to insert a coin to get a gumball, but you will need to pay Hammacher Schlemmer $3,900 (USD) to get the machine. I’m not sure if it comes with 14,450 gumballs, but at that price it should, and not a gumball less.
