I wouldn't bother with pringles unless you are putting a £1.50 or £2 mech on, there is no money in it
Oh sound thanks for that. Do you think they would sell for the higher prices you mentioned? Is that something you have done?

Cheers Matt

I think an additional toy tower is a great idea where possible. Are tubz vending vending toys the way to go? I was thinking of trying the Pringles route but still undecided.
I wouldnt vend toys through sweet towers. Others do but i think that is mainly because they have spare towers sitting in their sheds. I think toy vondors do a better job.

As for Pringles I would hold off for a month or so on them. The supply of Pringles has been sketchy over the last few months. I would wait and see what happens with the price when the supply comes back before making a financial commitment.

Thanks Andy for the insight. I think I’ll take your advice on both points 👍

I suppose I was thinking about introducing just one or two of the tubz vending toy lines within a sweets vending machine, just as an experiment as much as anything, to see if customers could be tempted into buying more than one product from the machine per visit. Like you say though a dedicated toy machine next to the sweet one would be the better solution where space permits.

Pringles are such a strong brand I am very tempted, but I think I’ll air on the side of caution for now, especially if the price is unpredictable.

Thank you, appreciate that! I’m sure I’ll be reaching out before too long to find parts etc. A good supply of tubz vending unstickered plastic ring segments would be a good start! 😉

Rings galore here too.

Also looks as though my Pringles supply is back on line as of this week.
