So how many of you had...

... a Hasbro gumball machine back in the day?? I had a couple. They were never sold with enough gumballs to fill up the head, and my folks wouldn't get me replacement gumballs once they were gone (it only took a day to finish them all. Like how long does it take to go through 15 little gumballs). And instead of constantly using new coins to get a new gumball, I'd just remove the bottom of the base and get the same coin and use it over and over again. These things were much better on the commercials..

I had one, not sure what character it was now, though. Never got new gumballs, either.

Ha! I had the Mickey Mouse head. Would've much preferred the Fred head, though! Never got replacement gumballs and used the same penny out of the base. I remember trying to fill it with other things, but they just got stuck in there.

JM: The commercial showed the kid removing the base and a ton of change poured out. I was never that disciplined

Karen: I had a Mickey one also. I had Fred too. I wanted Popeye but never got him.
