This candy dispenser provides a fun way to get a delicious sweet treat. A simple slider mechanism doles out the goods and the top has an easy-release lid. The Lego Candy Dispenser is a super simple build and doesn't take a bunch of crazy pieces but still results in an impressive way to share your candy with friends.
The dispenser is made of four main parts:
The steps are labeled accordingly.
The Lego Candy Dispenser takes a variety of parts to make but since there's aren't many specialized or rare parts, most people should be able to build it without trouble. While the exact parts and color you use will likely be different than mine, the basic part types you will need are:
-1x1 round plates
-2x3 sloped bricks
-1x2 window thingies
Check out the picture captions for the part names.
If you have any trouble with obtaining the transparent parts, you could always use transparent bricks or only make one level of transparent bricks and close the rest in normal bricks, the candy won't be as visible but you'll still be able to see inside.
Construct an 8x8 base of bricks topped with plates. I used 8 2x4 lime bricks and then topped it with 2x2, 1x2, and 2x4 orange tiles. Whatever parts you use, aim for strength by covering as many cracks as you can with the plates.
