Invented by a Kid for Kids of All Ages
"What better reward than a functioning candy machine at the end of a project?! My 12 year old was really proud of himself—you can tell by the held-back smile. My 8 year old was so excited for her turn and she LOVED it! We worked before bed, then the next day she got up early, got dressed, and got right to work to finish. She said, 'This is WAY better than using the iPad!" - Kristin
Even Adults Love It
"I wanted a fun and unique hands-on activity that we could all do together. This fit the bill perfectly." - Mark
Perfect for Graduates
"I ordered 25 DIY Gumball Machine cards for my 19 graduating students and their 6 teachers. The cards were a HUGE hit! Combined with custom m&ms (in school colors), everyone LOVED the cards, especially since they were able to construct them themselves. This gift is now a new tradition as part of our graduation gift bags." - Tara
"One of the coolest gifts I have received. It is a card and a candy dispenser all-in-one! I always have it on display in my room." - Dylan F.

I received an Octogift for my college graduation and was pleasantly surprised! It was such a cute and thoughtful gift and the design was outstanding. I will definitely display this gift long after the candy is gone.

I bought three of the kits to make the candy dispensers...The directions were very complete. I was impressed with the mechanics of the candy dispenser and would highly recommend this to others! My son, who is going to school for mechanical engineering, thought it was pretty cool.

This was a great project! My girls loved building these gumball machines themselves and needed very little help from my husband or I.

I was searching for ways to make a virtual college graduation special for my daughter. I ordered one in her school color and filled it with gumballs from Target. We were able to quickly assemble the gift and it made my heart smile to see the process followed for creating these treasures -- so clever. Loved the gift and loved supporting this kind of creativity.

This is absolutely ingenious! My children were delighted by the design of it, as was my husband who loved the candy inside LOL. Thank you for your creativity and prompt shipment!!

I gave an Octogift to my son for his graduation and he loved it. I was looking for a gift that was unique and would last. Something he could take to college with him yet is not too bulky.

So clever and my 3 big kids (ages 12, 12 & 15) all loved their candy filled cards and thought the dispensing mechanism was super cool! Thanks for making Valentine's Day fun and easy for me this year!

It’s an actual working candy dispenser! Much more unique and lasting than a card that gets thrown in the trash.
