You know those claw machines they have in the front of stores? You put fifty cents in it and try to grab one of the stuffed animals with the big claw. I always thought they were rigged until this summer when we stopped at one with Anne Marie. She had never worked one before, and she got this little green snail! See her grabbing it where I circled it in the picture?
Then a few days later, we decided to take Ella. She was too nervous to do it herself, and asked Phil to do it for her. FIRST try and he got this awesome sparkly dolphin!!! Twice in a row, I could hardly believe it.
And these machines have come a long way, the tags say they are stuffed with eco friendly recycled materials! Who knew? Have YOU ever had an unusual vending machine experience?
“God snatches me from the clutch of death;
he reaches down and grabs me.”
