This is a great afternoon project for Lego lovers such as myself. I like making things out of Legos  and candy, so it seemed fit to create this project. I hope you enjoy reading this and making it, and would appreciate it if you would vote for me in the Toys Contest.



Materials needed:

- A whole lot of Legos, preferably single or double wide, flat pieces, and smooth pieces
- A medium rubberband
- 2 Connecter pins
- 1 long connecter pin
- 2 3x1 pieces with holes in them
- 2 2x1 pieces with holes in them

Step 1: The Candy Holder

To assemble the main candy chamber, gather enough pieces to make a 4 layer rectangle. It is okay if you have some gaps, but make sure that they are not big enough for small candies to fit through. 
 
I have seen something like this before in a book I have called 'LEGO CRAZY ACTION contraptions by Don Rathjen and the editors of KLUTZ

Cool, but can you show it with candy so we can see how it works?

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. My computer won't let me post videos and here, but I posted the main picture to show how the candy comes out. Basically, you push in the handle and the candy falls into the bottom for you to retrieve.
and i'm a lego FAN you can also get on mln you go to lego .com and sighn up for free! i'm kunfumaster1183 ;)
my brother can do something like that!

What type of candy is this designed for?

ncoleman2 (author)  lemonie3 years ago
This is mainly designed for M&Ms and Reeses Pieces, although it could work also with Smarties, Bottlecaps, and the like.
OK cheers, & happy Christmas.
