Step 2: The "Floor" of the Candy Holder

This step has 2 parts. 
First, you will need to make the "floor". This is to hold in the candy, but still leave an opening for the candy to fall through. You can see this in pictures 1-6. In picture 7 I showed how to attach it on the bottom.

Part 2 is the part that makes sure no candy gets let behind. It slants so the candy will fall toward the opening. I used slanted pieces stacked on top of each other to achieve this effect. You can see how I built it in pictures 8-13.


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<br>
this was from a Lego book/kit thing that had instructions and some pieces..<br>i still got mine from Years back.. :P
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 ;)

What type of candy is this designed for?<br> <br> L
This is mainly designed for M&amp;Ms and Reeses Pieces, although it could work also with Smarties, Bottlecaps, and the like.
OK cheers, &amp; happy Christmas.<br> <br> L
