Hasbro Gumball Machines

Although the above pictured Popeye gumball machine is copyrighted 1968, it was sold well into the early 70's. I had a few of these (not the Popeye version). I used to take out the bottom panel and retrieve the coin, I never let it fill up with change. And usually the gum would be gone in 2 days. Although millions of these things were made, they're not so easy to find these days.

Well, I guess there's room for everyone.

Jen, I had Mickey Mouse and a couple of others..

So Jen, did you used to let it fill up with change, or cheat like I did.

Jen said...

I probably cheated

It didn't last to long
it broke and I think
my mother tossed it

sad really..
