S&B Candy and Toy Co., bulk vending machine, egg vender ST. LOUIS, MO -- S&B Candy and Toy Co. reports that the second production run of its animated Dinosaur Egg Machines, which made their debut early this summer, has started shipping. The machine is an updated version of the traditional bulk "egg" capsule vender. | SEE STORY

Two versions are available, one starring a ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex and the other, a small-child-friendlier cartoon-inspired "happy dino." Both dinosaurs rotate, backed by a sound track featuring six dinosaur-centric songs and roars. In effect a "winner-every-time" machine, it dispenses 2" dinosaur eggs that are filled (reasonably enough) with toy dinosaurs, exclusively available from S&B. The vender also accommodates standard toy or candy filled eggs, 2" capsules and high-bounce balls.

Measuring only 60" high x 24" wide x 16" deep, the Dinosaur Egg Machine comes equipped with two coin mechanisms and a bill validator. A special three-compartment "prize pyramid" atop the machine can be stocked with plush dinosaurs or other attractive prizes. The keys that open the locker may be vended as prizes in golden eggs (also available from S&B). After the player has opened the locker and retrieved a prize, the lock traps the key in a manner similar to a coin-op public locker. This special feature is built in and included in the price of the machine, enabling the operator to free up space for other revenue-producing attractions.

The manufacturer reports that the new machine's first production run sold out almost immediately. It is accepting deposits so that customers can secure one in the August shipment. Orders may be placed by calling Paula Rinker at (800) 773-0531.

S&B Candy and Toy has been an amusement industry supplier for over two decades with its "win every time" candy and toy cranes, along with its premium plush, toy, and candy mixes.
