A Desktop Rocket Shaped Candy-Grabbing Claw Machine

Candy: it maintains my sugar high at a suitable level, so I don’t have to take a nap at my desk midday. And you know what’s better than regular candy? Candy, you’ve won. Enter the $44 Rocket Candy Grabber available from Firebox, a desktop claw machine you fill with candy, then empty with skill.

The Rocket Candy Grabber is powered by 3 AA batteries and has LEDs that light up, and it plays “intense” carnival music while you test your skill at grabbing candy. Frustrated you aren’t grabbing the candy fast enough? Just crack the thing open like Humpty Dumpty. Just don’t go asking all the king’s horses and all the king’s men for assistance putting it back together if you do.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be big or strong enough to accommodate full-size candy bars, which is a shame because they’re all I eat. I don’t have time to unwrap all those teensy snack-size candies; I need the real deal. King size? Even better. You know, just the other day, I started a petition for candy companies to start manufacturing California king-sized candy bars.
