Moshi Monsters Gumball Machine

With 2 Moshi Monsters fans in the house, storage has become an issue for all the adorable moshlings. It's really awesome to put them on display, but we are running out of space, and like Dominoes, tripping one over means disaster for us. Using Kragle like Lord Business did is out of the question as well.

The ever so lovely PR from Vivid Imaginations has sent us the perfect display and storage for the ever growing moshling collection - Moshi Monsters Gumball Machine.

The Moshi Monsters Gumball Machine (rrp £17.99, suitable for 4 years +) comes with an exclusive moshling - Bodge the Artful Splodger, stickers and instruction sheet. The gumball machine can be opened from the top by removing the silver horned helmet to add moshlings to the collection (it can hold over 120 moshlings), and like all gumball machines, you turn the knob at the base to release them.



The gumball machine looks really attractive with the moshlings inside, don't you think? It's so colourful and candy-like, it's no wonder the kids were having so much fun with it! It is a bit hard to open the lid, which suited me perfectly as it makes it harder for the kids to just pour everything out as soon as I've shoved the moshlings in. But Abby has soon found a way to open it by herself, and Clay had no problem picking the trick up - use a LEGO brick separator. Me and hubby were amused by the clever idea, although the moshlings has now become part of the LEGO-bricks-covered-floor that we have to carefully tread on.

It provides lots of fun for the kids, and they were happy to put the moshlings back in after each play (until the last round. That's when they just leave everything around for us  parents  maids to tidy up). As the number of moshlings that come out from the machine is random, they like to compete against each other and see who gets the most moshlings at the end. There were screaming involved but they look very happy, so I'm happy.

If you have an overflowing moshling collection, this is definitely the storage you should get.
