Picture of LEGO Hi-Chew Dispenser
After making my Lego Candy Dispenser, I decided I wanted to make something to dispense my current candy obsession: Hi-Chew!

I also wanted a machine that dispensed the candy when the handle was pushed in, instead of when pulled out. Another design feature I wanted was an area to collect the candy from after being dispensed. I'm very pleased with how it came out and already have a few ideas for my next Lego candy machine. 

I recently entered this in the 2013 Alameda County Fair and it ended up winning a 1st place ribbon :D !


Step 1: The Mechanism

This is the 'action' piece. It will move back and forth, grabbing a single candy at a time and transporting it to drop down the chute. Because the mechanism is the moving part, I decided every face should be smooth.

Great build. Hope you win the contest.

Just make the back, behind the slide 1x. Then theirs room for a flat leaf spring in, to push the slide back out.
Very clever design.. Great job!http://www.instructables.com/id/Lego-Hi-Chew-Dispenser/step2/null/

It would probably only take a slight modification in Step 3 to add a rubber band that would push the mechanism back out after dispensing a candy.
I was thinking that as well. An even better idea would be to use a pair of spring pieces, however both of those methods would likely require the machine to be quite a bit larger.
Your creations are absolutely fabulous!! I just love how creative they are. Please, keep making more!
This is the most clever thing I've ever seen in my entire life.
